Michael Jackson loved rodents

Here is Michael Jackson, age 14, singing "Ben" at the Oscars in 1973. Of course, "Ben" was the theme song of a horror film with the same name. This clip was shown in court on Friday during the trial in a wrongful death lawsuit filed by Michael Jackson's three children and his mother Katherine against AEG Live. From CNN:

"He liked that song because he liked the rats," his mother said.

She then told a story about discovering her son had a mouse in his pocket during dinner at a Beverly Hills restaurant. "I was very upset with him."
