Princess Diana Revealed Her Naughty Side At Michael Jackson's Show While Talking To Him Backstage
Princess Diana had many chances to prove that she was really the People’s Princess. She showed how normal and down-to-earth she was for a Royal, and how naughty she let herself be.
One of the stories that reveal this mischievous side of hers was a meeting with Michael Jackson, in 1988. Diana loved pop music and considered Elton John, Freddie Mercury and George Michael dear friends.
She was fond of Jackson’s music as well, so she arrived at his show, as the part of his world tour BIG, with Prince Charles. The Princess approached the pop singer backstage before his performance in London. Followed by the husband, Diana came up to Jackson and asked him a question which is typical of real fan.
Michael Jackson talked about this conversation after Diana’s death. He said she had asked him whether he was going to sing “Dirty Diana.” The singer replied that he had not included that one into the show out of respect, but this answer left the Princess quite disappointed.
“It’s my favorite song”, she explained. Unfortunately, it was too late to make any changes. When Prince Charles joined them, he asked, “What are you talking about?”. “Oh, nothing”, Diana shrugged off.
Later, she became close friends with Jackson. They shared a lot in common, and one of those things was the pressure from tabloids and publicity. The King of Pop remembered the Princess as the sweetest person he had ever known due to her compassion and genuine care about others.
