Anderson Cooper Hit Studio 54 With Michael Jackson

Anderson Cooper Hit Studio 54 With Michael Jackson

On Thursday night’s episode of Anderson Cooper 360, CNN dream host Anderson Cooper shared about the first time he met Michael Jackson.

The 42-year-old Silver Fox shared, “When I was 10, for some odd reason, I went to [disco epicenter] Studio 54 with Michael Jackson and a bunch of people. I had no idea who he was. I saw him dance, and I was like, ‘Oh, he’s a good dancer.’”

Coop continued, “Why I was at Studio 54 is a whole other story. Child welfare will want to talk to my mom [Gloria Vanderbilt] about that.”

Of course, Anderson did not dance with Michael! (He has refused to dance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and Live with Regis and Kelly.)

    Oh, please, stop the insanity!!!!

    Every Tom, Dick & Harry is going to remember even the slightest detail of their contact (or lack thereof) with Michael Jackson. Jackson was a very disturbed individual who happened to sing and dance phenomenally well.

    Let’s REALLY let him rest in peace!!!!

    You get it wrong Lalique #5

    Jackson was a phenomenal singer, perfomer, dancer….who happened to become a very disturbed individual!! His chilhood was unreal! He was a miserable kid. Once he became an adult, he was a men-boy who tried to catch up on his childhood…..sad and we all witnessed his downfall
