–WARNING: SATIRE AHEAD–
In a stunning courtroom development, prosecutors put one-time Michael Jackson protege “Rockwell” on the stand to testify against the former “King of Pop”. Rockwell, whose real name is Kennedy William Gordy, testified that Michael Jackson was the inspiration for his ’80s hit, “Somebody’s Watching Me”.
Gordy, the son of Motown founder Berry Gordy, explained, saying “I was watching Michael with some kids one day, and it just kind of hit me what a freak he was. The way he was always watching them, like he was undressing them with his eyes. It really creeped me out. And that’s where the song came from. I just put myself in the mind of one of the little boys, and how it would feel to be around Michael. Of course, I had to change the words a little to keep from being sued, but I think people knew who I was talking about.”
Sample lyrics from Rockwell’s song include:
I always feel like somebody’s watching me
And I have no privacy (oh oh oh)
When I’m in the shower, I’m afraid to wash my hair
‘Cause I might open my eyes and find someone standing there
Michael’s freakish behavior was also the inspiration for some of the creepier shots in the accompanying music video.
“All those shots you see of me hiding in the closet, or standing in the shower with my boxers on, or running through the house trying to get away from that pig-dog, that’s all Michael,” said Rockwell. “Seriously. You wouldn’t believe the stories I used to hear about him in the studio. My little nephew said every time he turned around Michael was sneaking up on him, dropping a bar of soap and asking him to pick it up, that sort of shit.”
“Thank God by the time I recorded the song with him I already had my pubes, that’s all I’m saying.”
