Vanessa Misses MJ

“He Was Just So Sweet And Normal”

As bizarre rumours continue to dominate headlines a fortnight after Michael Jackson’s untimely death, it seems there are still some who have yet to come to terms with the King Of Pop’s passing. Among them is teen-idol Vanessa Hudgens, who recently revealed she is reeling from the superstar’s death because she was developing a close friendship with Michael and his kids.

MJ unexpectedly visited the cast of 'High School Music' when they were on tour in Los Vegas; leaving Vanessa and boyf Zac Effron with their jaws on the ground.

She tells WENN, "I got a chance to meet him, which was incredible. Kenny Ortega, the director of High School Musical, was working with him on his last tour and he came out to one of the shows when we were on tour with High School Musical in Vegas.

"He came backstage with his kids and was just so sweet and so normal and it's really sad. I'll always remember it. It was extremely surreal.

"I admire him so greatly like the rest of the world does but to be able to talk to him and see that he's a normal human being was crazy. I got to talk to him again on the phone... It was so weird; like, how do you make small talk with Michael Jackson? It was odd but he was so kind and generous."

Nice to see MJ was still inspiring the youth of the world...
