'60 Seconds' Exposes Michael Jackson's Plans For World Domination

We all have plans to achieve our goals and ambitions in life, and for a 21-year-old Michael Jackson he only had one thing on his mind; complete world domination and to be a "a new, incredible actor/singer/dancer that will shock the world."

Well, mission accomplished we suppose, but the recently uncovered handwritten manifesto by the late King of Pop from 1979 reveals more than an overwhelming desire to become the greatest entertainer of all time, it also reveals a young man driven by a strong determination to be the best at what he does and become the King of Pop. MJ's meticulous attention to detail was renowned and his career was one of the most enduring of all time, and with this recently unearthed document we now know that Michael didn't just turn on his drive in the studio or on stage, but had planned his future way in advance and stuck to the plan.

Jackson's manifesto could be the reason we remeber him for all the right reasons

The manifesto was found etched on the back of a tour itinerary in Michael's handwriting, and was tucked away in a secret warehouse full of Jackson's belongings that until recently had been completely forgotten about since Michael's untimely death in 2009. In his letter he writes; "MJ will be my new name. No more Michael Jackson. I want a whole new character, a whole new look. I should be a tottally [sic]different person. People should never think of me as the kid who sang "ABC," [or]"I Want You Back. I should be a new, incredible actor/singer/dancer that will shock the world," continuing, "I will do no interviews. I will be magic. I will be a perfectionist, a researcher, a trainer, a masterer [sic]. I will be better than every great actor roped into one."

The new finding may be the catalyst to what was a career like no other, and one that will likely not be emulated any time soon. Later in 1979 the singer released his first solo record, Off The Wall, to great critical and public appreciation and the rest, as they say is history.

Michael led a very unhealthy life and he paid a hefty price for his misadventure. He really needed guidance in his life since he was a teenager. Instead he had a family who regarded him as a dancing wallet, and now they'll try anything to cash in on his death. Read about this shameful exploitation by Joe Jackson and a French crook from Nice Julian Franck Rouas from Julian Rouas Paris, lately renamed JRP Collection Paris, a line of stinky tribute perfumes...

So.....he wanted to be the best of the best.....there's nothing wrong with that!! I'd say Michael achieved that and more! He was 21 at the time he wrote that from what the article said and just beginning his solo career. He was probably excited and looking forward to being on his own!!!
