Rashida Jones: Childhood Pal Michael Jackson Was 'A Bit Of An Alien'


Rashida Jones is the daughter of two celebrities, Quincy Jones and Peggy Lipton, but that doesn’t mean her childhood was weird. Like the rest of us, Rashida had a friend who always pushed her to play dumb pranks. The only difference is that for her, the kid from down the block happened to be the King of Pop. In Playboy she remembers a typical play date with MJ:

“He was definitely a little bit of an alien, for sure, and when I was young, it felt as if he was my age, not 18 years older, but with just a little bit more pep … Later, we’d go out on the town together. He always wore those surgical masks. Once, my sister, Michael, ­Emmanuel Lewis and I got in a car with Super Soakers and went by a movie theater and supersoaked the hell out of people waiting in line. They had no idea they’d just been supersoaked by the King of Pop.”
