Michael Jackson Felt 'Young' at 50, Never Reached 51

Jackson: More! I can do more…because I am expanding a lot of the avenues that I was holding back and I am just going to share more of the gifts that God has given me and just let it all hang out. People see some of the things I do and say why don't you show this to the world, people don't know you do these things! And maybe I will.

Connelly: Does 50 feel like a big number to you? How old to do you feel you are?

Jackson: I feel very wise and sage but at the same time very young, so it's hard to say.

Connelly: You have a lot of fans out there who would like to come out with some way to celebrate your birthday – what would you like them to do, to commemorate your 50th?

Jackson: Oh, to think about our planet – seriously. I mean how to make it a better planet. The global warming issue is a concern to me very much. Just make the world a better, happier place. It's our home. I'd like to see us do a better job of taking care of it.

Connelly: Is that because you are a father and you look at your kids and worry about what we are leaving for them when we go away?

Jackson: That – and I have always felt compassion for the planet. Sometime I just start to get emotional. I cry because I can almost feel the pain in the air. So it makes me – I put it in words and in song and in dance I think that is what artistry is.

Connelly: Will you take the day off (for your birthday) or will you be working like you normally do on your music or dance?

Jackson: I will be working – love to work. I don't take too much time off.
