AEG Live has released the first video clip of Michael Jackson’s rehearsal two nights before he died, on June 23. Jackson and his dancers perform “They Don’t Care About Us” and it’s, frankly, thrilling. Michael looks lean and mean, totally coherent, clear-eyed and in control. He doesn’t look frail, fragile or confused. So much for the idiotic comments from sources that “he knew he was going to die” or anything else like that. More clips should be coming soon, and they will continue to show that there was no indication that the pop star wouldn’t be breathing just days later. His death remains a mystery and a tragedy. What a shame if, as so far indicated, it turns out to have been an accidental overdose that did him in.
