Michael Jackson - Ne-yo Almost Fainted During Michael Jackson Meeting

R&B star Ne-YO "almost fainted" during his first meeting with Michael Jackson when the superstar began singing one of his tracks.
The So Sick hitmaker was hired to write with the Thriller star before his tragic death in 2009, and Ne-Yo reveals his first encounter with the pop icon left him completely star-struck.
He tells New York Post gossip column Page Six, "I can listen back to those songs (written with Jackson) and (think of) the time that we met. His first words to me when he walked into the room were, 'You know what my favourite song of yours is,' and he started singing lyrics... I almost fainted. I didn't, but I came this close."

I love these stories about how so many people were totally star struck when they first met Michael and how they even hung up on him the first time he called because they just couldn't believe it was Michael Jackson on the phone. How much they idolized him. Ne-Yo, Usher, Will.i.am and countless others. What an impact Michael had over the decades. He was like a god to so many. You are so missed, MJ.
