MICHAEL Jackson praised the showmanship of HITLER - describing him in a bombshell taped interview as a "genius". Jackson was also convinced he could have got rid of the Fuhrer's evil. His amazing claims - made to a RABBI - are revealed for the first time as The Sun today lifts the lid on a sensational series of recorded conversations between the two friends.
Jacko told close pal Rabbi Shmuley Boteach: "Hitler was a genius orator.
"To make that many people turn and change and hate, he had to be a showman and he was."
The rabbi put it to the singer, who died of heart failure in June aged 50: "You believe that if you had an hour with Hitler you could somehow touch something inside of him?"
Jackson declared: "Absolutely. I know I could." He insisted nobody was all evil, explaining:
"You have to help them, give them therapy, teach them that somewhere, something in their life went wrong."
The Jewish holyman, 42 - a rabbi at Oxford University for 11 years - taped more than 30 hours of interviews with the star.
wtf, why is shmuley being a mediawhore and exploiting his 'friend'? :(
