Stephanie Mills Wanted to Marry Michael Jackson, But He Wasn’t Ready, More

With almost half a century in the entertainment business, veteran Stephanie Mills is still doing what she loves; music. Fresh off her headlining performance during New York City’s Blue Note Music Festival in June, the 55-year-old spoke “On Air With Egypt” recently via Atlanta’s V103 about who she likes and dated in the music business.

Mills opened up about her fling with the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson, insisting she wanted to marry him, but he wasn’t ready at the time.

“Yes, I really did,” Mills admits about dating Michael. “I loved Michael. I thought that I was going to be Mrs. Michael Jackson, but I was ready at 20 and 21 to get married and he was not even close to getting married or having a girlfriend at that time, but yes we dated. We dated for awhile.”

Mills, who gained popularity on the charts in the 80s with hits like “I’ve Learned to Respect (The Power of Love) and conquered the Broadway stage in “The Wiz” and “Maggie Flynn,” also says she likes several of today’s top artists, in addtion to the late Tupac Shakur.

She adds: “I like Jay-Z. I love Luda. I love Ledisi. I like Beyonce of course. I think she’s just brilliant. She’s a triple threat. But my favorite- my all time rapper is Tupac. See I could have been Tupac’s girlfriend.”

Well well Stephanie!!!
