It seems that some authors will stop at nothing to hype their books.
Stacy Brown, who is one of the authors of the book "Michael Jackson: The Man Behind The Mask", is adding publicity to his work by saying that Michael Jackson will be dead within ten years.
Brown believes that Jackson will "crash and burn" before long.
Brown, who co-wrote the book with Bob Jones, said:
"I don't think Michael Jackson will be alive in 10 years time...It's amazing to me that what happened to Elvis hasn't happened to him. He lives on the edge. He's bound to crash and burn. He's 87 pounds and six foot tall - that's unhealthy."
Brown doesn't think that Jackson would commit suicide:
"I don't think he has it in him to take his own life. I don't see him putting a gun to his head. It'll be an accidental overdose - something like that..It's the most tragic story in pop music history - and he's not dead yet."
