Michael Jackson wanted to be 'immortalised' The 'Billie Jean' hitmaker had been writing in a secret diary about being "the greatest ever" and wanting to be remembered forever like Charlie Chaplin and Walt Disney.
Excerpts from 'Bad: An Unprecedented Investigation into the Michael Jackson Cover-Up', obtained by The Mirror newspaper, revealed the singer wanted to be "immortalised".
The singer also revealed his plans to earn $20million a week before his passing, and was looking to do concerts with Cirque du Soleil concerts, signing a brand deal with Nike as well as starring in Hollywood films as well as the gigs at London's O2 Arena.
He wrote: In the diary, Michael also shared his concerns about his team of managers and other staff, as he revealed he was keen to sign his own cheques over a significant figure.
He wrote: The diary also revealed Michael's paranoia at times, as he wrote about being afraid of "evil people everywhere".
