Whitney Houston and Smokey Robinson have opened up about Michael Jackson a year after his death - for a new TV tribute created by the KING OF POP's best pal, David Gest.
Gest has grilled members of the Jackson family as well as the Thriller legend's pals Robinson, Houston, Dionne Warwick and Petula Clark for his four-hour 'popumentary', The Real Michael Jackson.
The show includes an interview with Jackson's eldest sister Rebbie, who discusses the singer's alleged pill addiction, while his beloved mum Katherine pays a touching tribute to her son.
Gest explains, "I have spent the past three months travelling the world interviewing people who were most important in (Jackson's) life. I believe this popumentary will entertain and educate in equal measures about who the real Michael Jackson was. I hope this will serve as a lasting testament to the compassion and love that he had for all mankind."
The special is due for release in June (10), a year after the superstar died from a cardiac arrest last summer (09). A broadcast date has not yet been confirmed.

I for would love to see the popumentary about Michael. I was his fan from way back when and I continue to be his loyal fan. I love to learn new thing about Michael no matter who tells the story. I will judge for myself if it is true or not. Please just continue to be the loyal fans you have been all along and step back and see what the popumentary is all about before you question anyone.Michael always knew which of these stars where his true friends. No one compares to the one and only Elizabeth Taylor. She has loved Michael from the first moment they talked until they reunite once more.Thank you for giving me the opportunity to learn more about Michael.

Yes, where were they in 2005 when Atty Mesereau asked them to come forward for Michael. Michael died of a broken heart caused by the loss of his beloved Neverland; but he always cared for and loved his children to the end. I hope Mr. Gest's tribute is everything MJ deserved and more. Nice of all these celebs to show up now, but where were you "then"!
