New Book Details the Last Four Years of Michael Jacksons Life
UNTOUCHABLE: The Strange Life and Tragic Death of Michael Jackson depicts the superstar as an artist plagued by scandal
On Tuesday, a new book detailing the life of Michael Jackson was released by Rolling Stone journalist Randal Sullivan.
Sullivan had unprecedented access to people surrounding Michael, including members of his family, and his portrait shows a different side of the superstar than the media has previously highlighted. In the book, Sullivan depicts Michael as an incredibly talented and successful artist surrounded by dishonest people and marred by allegations of scandal.

Many devoted fans of Michael Jackson have been quick to criticize Sullivans portrayal, unnerved by parts of the narrative that Jackson family members have spoken out to refute. But the tome is a sympathetic take on the difficulties Michael faced in his relationships with his family, business partners, and physicians, struggles with his finances and legal proceedings, putting a new, perhaps at times more human, face one one of the most successful pop stars of all time.
