Q: Michael, your प्रशंसकों want to know your ideas about a first date!
MJ: On a first date, I like to bring a girl over to my house for a barbeque and a swim, especially on a warm summery evening! I know that some chicks get mad if आप don't take them somewhere fancy and spend alot of money on them on a date, but I'm not interested in those kinds of girls. I want someone who I can feel comfortable with just sitting and talking to, या sharing a fun, casual time with! I'm not sayin' that we wouldn't ever go out. I प्यार to go out to movies, concerts, and restaurants, but I think it's important to know one another on a first date, and आप can't if आप go to watch somethin' all night!
Q: Are आप a 'gentleman' on a date?
MJ: I never gave it much thought. Opening doors for girls is something that I just do automatically without thinking, like scratchin' my head when it itches! When you're taught all your life to do polite things for girls, आप just can't forget it! It's सेकंड nature to you, like breathing या tapping your feet to music!
Q: How do आप feel about चुंबन on a first date?
MJ: I can dig it! I think that if आप dig a chick enough to ask her out, you're crazy if आप don't want to किस her. And, if she accepted the date, she likes आप and probably wants to be kissed. So, I couldn't think of any reason why आप shouldn't! I think I'd like to wait 'till the end of the तारीख, दिनांक before I kissed her, though! I think most girls are afraid you're comin' on too fast if आप किस them right away. But, if I could tell that chick I was with was just waitin' to be kissed, I wouldn't mess around wastin' time! I'd take her in my arms, bend her face back to rest on the back of her seat, and slowly lean toward her, gazin' into her eyes and talking in a slow, smooth voice. Then, I'd press my lips against hers, gently at first, then harder and harder until we're both लॉस्ट in a soul किस of true love.
Q: How do आप feel about honesty between a guy and a girl?
MJ: I think that bein' honest with one another is important when you're gettin' serious with a chick, and don't want to have her goin' out with other guys. आप have to be loyal and true to one another, या your प्यार will never last! But, when you're dating lots of chicks, and the chicks आप तारीख, दिनांक go with other guys, honesty isn't so important. Don't get me wrong, though! I don't think lyin' to someone is ever a good या a smart thing to do! But, as long as आप haven't made any promises to each other, आप have the right to keep some things for yourself! For instance, if you've been dating a chick on and off and she dates other guys, and she asks आप where आप were when she phoned your house and didn't get an answer, I don't think it's any of her business to know आप were out with a different girl! I don't think I have the right to pry into her life either!
Q: What would आप do if आप fell in प्यार with a girl who was going steady with someone else?
MJ: Well, if I knew from the beginning that she was going with another guy, I probably wouldn't तारीख, दिनांक her, no matter how much I wanted to! But, if I didn't know she was going steady, and I found out after I fell in प्यार with her, I think I'd be pretty mad! Even if I thought that she didn't do it to be cruel, and was just too scared to tell him her true feelin's, I think I'd tell her in a kind, understanding way, to figure out what she was gonna do, and come back after she'd done it.
Q: Michael, what do आप admire in others?
MJ: I admire people who are really dedicated to their संगीत and to entertaining people! That's why I admire Sammy Davis Jr, and hope to be like him when I grow up! He's a super professional, who puts a spell over his audience like some kind of magician. Singin' and dancin' his दिल out to give his audience a thrill they'll never forget. It takes many years to get like that, and that's my goal.
Q: What is the one thing आप dislike in a person?
MJ: I guess it's conceited, snobbish people that really bother me! Some people are very egotistical, and think they're better than everyone else! They're always talkin' about themselves, and can't listen to आप when you're trying to tell them something about yourself. They keep looking around to see if someone's lookin' at them, instead of looking directly at you, listening to what you're sayin'! It's like talking to a stone wall. When I meet a chick like that, I just turn off right away!
Q: Here's a hard सवाल - what one thing in your personality would आप change if आप could?
MJ: Well, my Mom says that I'm a procrastinator, which means that I put off things I don't want to do. I know that it's better to get things out of the way as soon as आप can, like cleaning your room, या doing your chores but sometimes I have a hard time gettin' around to them and keep putting them off!

In the magazine, प्रशंसकों were voting for their प्रिय teen तारा, स्टार as president. Here were Michael's campaign promises:
One promise I'll make for आप for sure is that if I win तारा, स्टार Magazine's Superstar of '72 election, I'm gonna be so happy that I'll grab आप wherever and whenever we meet, and give आप a big किस to thank आप for bein' my प्रशंसक and for giving me your vote! I always like to दिखाना my प्रशंसकों that I dig them and appreciate all they've done for me द्वारा holdin' their hand and lookin' right in their eyes as I talk to them (MJ is such a pimp)! When a chick takes the time and trouble to come see me, no matter where I am या how busy I am, I'm gonna do all I can so that when she leaves she'll really feel that it was worth her while! Here are my promises:
Promise Number One: Whether या not I win the शीर्षक Superstar of '72, I'm going to continue to work even harder at putting together an exciting दिखाना (like learning to play the piano!), so that when आप come to see us sing and dance, you'll remember our दिखाना all your life!
Promise Number Two: I promise that we'll try to make our संगीत कार्यक्रम costumes real 'baaad' (future foreshadowing) and foxy to keep आप turned on! And I want आप to send me any J-5 costume ideas आप might have!
Promise Number Three: I promise to bring lots of personally autographed pictures of the J-5 on the road with me, so that when I see आप in concert, you'll have something to really remember us by!
Promise Number Four: To प्यार and cheris each of my sweet-faced प्रशंसकों forever
