Pop culture correspondent Chris Connelly, of Good Morning America, recently spoke exclusively with The King of Pop, via phone conference, about his career, his children, and his destiny. And Connelly also talked with Michael about how he would celebrate turning the big 5-0!

I would just like to personally say happy birthday Michael and thank you for blessing the world with your presence, you are ultimately way ahead of time and everything you do is timeless, your style as well as your music flourishes continually. You shall be studied 200 years from now by the forthcoming generation! Long live the King, love you MJ!
