La Toya Jackson spoke to News of the World about Michael Jackson’s fascination with making Bubbles, his pet monkey, speak. La Toya said Michael’s dream was to communicate with Bubbles and he spent thousands of dollars to make it happen.
“Michael always wanted to know how to make Bubbles speak and talk,” she said.
“They definitely communicated. One morning Michael called me said ‘You got to see this – he mimics everything I do’. So Michael starts brushing his teeth and Bubbles looks up and gets a tooth brush and starts brushing his teeth too. Then he wanted to give him vocal chords and asked doctors ‘Can I give him an operation so that I can know what his thoughts are’.”
Jackson even asked doctors to move Bubbles’ larynx further down his throat so he could produce human words. Doctors slapped him silly and called him a retard. Actually, they told him it wouldn’t work. But they also probably called him a retard behind his back.
Sadly, Michael’s plan to make Bubbles speak never panned out as Bubbles grew into an aggressive chimp and was put into a sanctuary.
“Bubbles became extremely strong. When he was younger he would slap you and it would not hurt. But now they could knock you out. Sometimes he would swing on a chandelier and fly onto a table, and Michael would scream ‘no, no’.”
Jesus, this guy was a real weirdo. His life was basically a cartoon except less funny and more child rape-y.
