Michael Jackson may have been known for his childlike heart, but the late King of Pop absolutely hated certain celebrities, his personal physician and confidante, Dr. Conrad Murray, reveals in his shocking new tell-all. Find out which singers he thought were untalented— and which actress he called a "b***h!"
Jackson adored late American dancer Fred Astaire, and even visited his home from time to time, Murray alleges. But the singer loathed Astaire's partner! "He said that his partner Ginger Rogers was a b***h and a bigot," Murray writes in This Is It!. "She always appeared to be condescending, or did not care much for minorities, according to Michael."
The super skinny pop icon's taste in women was "extreme," Murray claims. "He was interested in anorexia. He wanted women who looked like bones," he says. "Kate Moss seemed too heavy for him."

Though Jackson "respected" artists including Beyonce, Kanye West, Jay Z and Justin Bieber, he didn't think the superstars had even a fraction of his talent. "He felt they were given too much credit for selling a mere 35 million copies of their album," Murray said. (He reportedly sold 65 million copies of 1982 hit "Thriller.")
