    MJ Tickled TV Reporter


    On her blog, American TV journalist Sharon Raiford Bush said that during an exclusive interview with Michael Jackson in 1979, the pop star kept giggling and interrupting her questions by playfully tickling her knees to show her how to take advantage of a moment in time that might never happen again.


    "In a therapeutic way, he re-awakened the child in me," said RaifordBush, a news anchor for an ABC affiliate at the time.  "He wanted me to stop being so serious and enjoy the simple things in life."


    That was Raiford Bush's first and last encounter with Jackson, who grew to become the most successful  recording artist on the planet.
