Michael Jackson and “The Little Prince”

little prince.jpgIn her tribute to Michael Jackson this afternoon at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, Brooke Shields explained that she saw the singer like the titular character in “The Little Prince” by Antoine de Saint-Exupery.

Her tearful speech generated a stream of spontaneous tributes to the book and Jackson. “What moves me so deeply about this sleeping prince is his loyalty to a flower,” explained the actress, telling the audience to remember Jackson not as the king of pop, but the little prince. In the book, the prince lives on a barren asteroid, caring for a little rose.

Shields quoted one famous line about the fragile, beautiful side of life we often overlook, taken here from Wikiquote: “Here is my secret. It is very simple: one sees well only with the heart. The essential is invisible to the eyes.”

And as for Scott Baio’s Proposal-in-Training….

There are so, so many things to crack up about (and that’s without mentioning his partying at the Playboy Mansion with Willie “Bibleman” Aames.) But what seems especially funny is going back to the last time the one-time heartthrob (and HAPPY DAYS nuisance) spoke with someone at Radar:

Nicole Eggert?

No, Nicole Eggert’s not true.

Nicollette Sheridan?

The Nicollette thing is true.

Brooke Shields?

No, she was just my friend forever. I’ve know her since I was, probably, 18.

Heather Locklear?

Yeah. That’s true. Great girl. Great girl.

Natalie Raitano, from V.I.P.?

Who’s that? If you start asking me obscure names, I have to say no. ‘Cause I don’t know who these people are. I mean, probably, but I don’t know. But so far, you’re batting about .600.

So naturally, Raitano – along with Locklear, Sheridan, Pamela Anderson and many other 80s and 90s-style lovelies – are mentioned in the circulating proposal. Guess Scott Baio doesn’t have a good memory for names…
