あらすじ・解説

More than seven years after his death, Michael Jackson continues to fascinate the world. Shana Mangatal was one of Jackson's only constant and true rocks of stability for nearly two decades. Their relationship was quiet and sweet and real - a closely guarded secret, known only to a few trusted employees and friends. Shana is now coming forward to tell their love story. Her story is rich with every little detail. She witnessed the scandals, lawsuits, the release of groundbreaking albums and subsequent world tours, big-budget short films, and addictions. Michael and Me entertains and inspires, but above all, Shana continues to treat Michael (and his legacy) with respect. This is not an exploitative tell-all, but rather a book that shows the side of Michael people never knew. In it, Shana paints a more intimate picture of this beloved, yet very misunderstood man.

Very entertaining , just entertainment like Michael Jackson told the author “ don’t believe everything you read”

a star struck crush with an imaginary one sided relationship . Simple kind gestures of Michael Jackson was misunderstood as a relationship. Author seems nice but her interpretation of Michael’s kindness was confused as a romantic interest. Her actions are very obsessive. Most of the book was mostly about her wondering why Michael ghosted her and ignored her. Someone who pops in and out of your life is not a romantic partner. She calls herself a close friend of Michael Jackson. Writing a book and telling intimate details isn’t too friendly to me. No wonder was he seemed skeptical and dodging her.

Michael and me

As began listening to the first 13 chapters it was hard to hear, it seemed like she had disdain in her voice and judgement in her words so I stopped , two weeks later I went back and found the most sad love story ever written , there was laughter and joy and sadness in it I began to feel how the author felt as she read. I give her five stars and a thumbs up for her courage in being able to tell her story. I recommend all Jackson fans to read this and not Judge a book by its cover. May god bless you Shana. Rip Michael

Mixed Emotions

Shana did a fantastic job telling the story. She is wonderful with words, she added amazing quotes and her voice is so sweet. But on the other hand Michael isn't here to defend himself when it comes to this.. She even said herself that he told her never to talk to the press again about this situation. So I don't understand why she thought it was ok to write a book so personal about him. I just don't get it..

Delusional

I'm sorry to say but I feel 100% that the author is extremely delusional and has created a book out of her obsession with Michael Jackson as a way to rewrite history so that it's the way it would have been in her dreams. I do not believe Michael and her had any sort of a relationship outside of work. I found myself laughing out loud as this point showed up several times throughout this work of fiction. Only the author and Michael know the real truth and sadly one of them can never tell us the truth. If it is true at least she has her memories of him forever but it's obvious she continued to do anything she could all the way up until the end to be in his life, as a stalker is known to do, in one form or another.

don't bother

i got to chapter 15 and frankly gave up. i rolled my eyes so many times it hurt. i kept wondering when the romance would start . it never did..i think she was infatuated with him but he didn't share her feelings. according to her every man flirted with her..got complemented in her acting on a video she did not speak in and was barely seen in..honestly it sounds like most of the interaction was fabricated..if I'm wrong, i apologize..but back up your stories..and the so called joke playing during ghost made no sense and was not funny at all..if it ever happened..so don't bother..glad it was free..

loved the book it was great and sad!

I didn't struggle to finish it because I love Michael and I miss him so much and my favorite part honestly even though I wish it was me was Shauna and Michael's intimate moments because he loved so much. and I'm so upset with all of the media junk and the lies about him I didn't believe any of it not one bit of it not one story I believed and I mean not one except for when he passed away that literally destroyed me because I literally am in love with him and I've never gotten over him everyday it seems like it gets worse for me and the 25th of this month will be 11 years. I don't know how I an going to deal with that day. he was such a sweetheart and deserve so much better treatment than he got towards the end of his life he really was a wonderful wonderful man the most giving loving caring sweetest man easy to talk to and there will never be anyone like him ever again. I hope you're happy Michael at least now now I don't have to worry about the media I mean they still bring up stupid things but you've got so many people backing you up you're still loved by millions and billions we all wish you were here cuz you deserve to be with your children and I believe between the stress stop the stupid media tabloid lies and your doctor prescribing you too much medications I don't believe you were ever an addict I'm sorry I do not believe that but the amount of stress and the medications is what took his life. rest in peace I love you ever since I was a little girl I dream about you and I have great respect for you because I know you so well I know how sweet you are where were you were absolutely just like what teams like Godly even though God is always first in my life course but then you and I would love to be able to see where you're buried at least be able to go to Neverland so I can leave you a wonderful message something I feel you really need to see and feel I will always love you till the day I die may God grant you happiness I hope you're up there dancing and singing for God God knows what kind of man you are and I know you're in heaven and I can't wait to see you when it's my time I'm going to give you the biggest hug and kiss that you've ever gotten in your lifetime. I need to go I'm in tears like I literally have never gotten over you ever. one thing I am a little disappointed about Shanna whatever why would you be talkin about Michael like he was a damn drug addict like are you kidding me and say that it's okay to listen to the tabloids. Don't you already know that the tabloids lie I'm a little disappointed that you would seriously honestly say that you thought he was on something give me a break no he was never a drug addict ever just because he sounded different and things like that didn't make him a drug addict it's called stress dear stress not drugs I cannot believe you seriously put that in your book you should be ashamed of yourself for saying that they put him through hell literally through hell just because someone is stressed out and going through a lot does it make them a drug addict that's actually seriously disrespectful to somebody that you claim that you love how dare you how dare you you say you love him and still do but you put a book out like this talking about him being on drugs and the believe the tabloids for truth how did Michael already told you how many times that you don't trust the tabloids wow shame on you like I honestly liked you but I'm really listening to the story again because I really like the book but I did not remember hearing you talk about drugs and him and believing the tabloids you should know better than anybody that the tabloids are not correct that they lie and lie especially through the false allegations I cannot freaking believe that you said that wow he trusted you and now that he's gone you put a book out like that and you talk about drugs and believing the tabloids holy crap I lost so much respect for you just right now like you just done messed up in my book like you completely just ruined my respect for you like 100% I have no respect for you now you're sounding like a backstabbing person that he trusted you he trusted you and you stabbed him in the back and you make a book about him with that garbage you speak about. actually the number seven is God's number so yes he spiritual but it means that but it also means God's number 7 is God's number if you haven't read the Bible I suggest you do so you'll know what it mean I know what it really means there's more to it being God's number there is an actual reason why it's God's number read the Bible you'll find out. also I know you probably aren't reading these reviews other people are but I would have loved to have love to have been in the bed with Michael I find him extremely sexy even his fifties he's always been a good looking man even as a little boy was a cute little boy and then when he grew up he just became hotter and hotter now when I watch any of his videos I just either laugh or I cry because I miss him so much I wish he was still here we shouldn't have lost him and it was not due to drugs I can't believe you would say something like that but I'm glad that you had the opportunity to be with him and love him I just am a little disappointed that you were talking about drugs he's always been against drugs even sing a song called morphine cuz he doesn't like drugs so I'm not sure why you would say such awful things like that by the way I'm glad that you got a chance to love him and still love him but I can promise you you don't love him the way that I do I would never write a book about him because he asked to keep your guys's personal affairs quiet that doesn't just mean in real life it means even when he passes away and here you are writing a book about him I mean that's sweet the idea Suite that you're letting people know about the real Michael some of it's true some of it's definitely not especially the drugs that's not true at all but he would be very upset with you that you didn't keep the secretive even though he's gone he's still trusted you Shana you completely broke his Trust and you're making money off his life and death. like you thought you knew Michael no I knew Michael very well and he did not do drugs anytime he did not like to tour he hated it he couldn't sleep because of all the different countries and states he was going to of course he's going to take something to try to sleep because the hours are going to be different that doesn't mean it's under the influence that just means he's exhausted and he's taking a sleeping pill to try to get some damn rest. since you did make this book even though Michael asked you not talk about anything That was done between you to at least be truthful about what you say in your book because you talking about drugs and things like that you just made him look bad like he was so kind of damn drug addict which is really untrue and inaccurate I knew him and he was not a drug addict ever and he always said that he loves everybody.

Broke my heart and then made it bloom!

I recommend this book especially to those who are true Michael Jackson fans or anyone who is interested in the truth of his life. This story has it all: heartbreak, laughter, tears, joy. It’s been a long time since a book made me laugh and cry. I felt like I was being transported back in time and I was experiencing the story myself! This audiobook reignited my love for Michael Jackson and I felt it reopening my heart chakra which had been tightly closed for a long time. This story filled me with hope, inspiration and love.

Give it a chance, be open minded, its worth it

This book was a great experience for me. I appreciated how honest Shana was. She was able to bring Michael to life from that honesty. I was able to put myself in her shoes. It was beautifully written. There was so much passion, love, pain, confusion, excitement, determination and so much more. I laughed and cried. Together they created something magical without even trying because fate did all the work. 10/10 would by the book and read it again over and over. I listened to the audio version first which made it even better because Shana reads it herself and you can feel the emotions and truth in her voice. I absolutely loved it!

A book written by a narcissist fan.

What could Shana Mangatal have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

I don't recommend this book because she disrespects Michael Jackson throughout her book. Shame on YOU Shana Mangatal for lying on a dead man that was nothing but nice to you even though he knew you was a stalker who wanted what he had (fame and fortune).

She talks about how Michael demanded to be called King Of Pop, which is a ridiculous accusation, Michael never had to demand anything and even if he did demand to be called ''King Of Pop'' it still doesn't mean the people will call him that, so again that's a ridiculous claim for her and only her to ever make.

She also claimed Michael bargained for awards, complete lies. Why would Michael need to bargain for awards when he was the best performer to ever live? it just doesn't make sense nor does it sound believable.

She talks about Michael preferring to be around little boys all the time, how he apparently withheld sex from Lisa (she wishes that was true), how he allegedly forgot who she was even though he allegedly took her virginity (I think any man who would take a woman's virginity would remember who they was), Shana also claims Michael faked being ill to try and get out of concerts, etc this is only a few examples of the accusations she is ACCUSING a deceased man of.

Lets not forget the main fact, she has no evidence whatsoever to prove of this relationship, all she has is fan memorabilia, work documents & a dirty yogurt cup. I gave Shana just like the rest of the fans the benefit of the doubt thinking she was telling the truth, then when she released this book I realized she was lying. What type of relationship or friendship was it really when she hasn't even got a personal photo? and save me the nonsense of ''the times was different back then'' because Shana has multiple photos with different celebs from that time period.

Even if this book is the gospel, I still wouldn't be jealous (That's what Shana and her minions like to call people who don't like her book) because the way she portrays Michael out to be is, some sort dog, who forgot who she was, disrespected her by calling her house stuff (Scott "House" Schaffer who was fired for extortion, he's one of the people who endorse this book), never got anything from him such as letters etc all she got was merchandise the fans get, and said ''I wished I didn't have sexual desires'' right after he took her virginity, ignored her when she went to his house (she went there on a fan day) making her upset and drive around drinking in hurt, Married Lisa, then divorced her, Married Debbie (got her pregnant three times,she miscarried once), was messing around with Lisa for many years after their divorce, and then impregnated another unknown woman, all whilst Shana stayed invisible. I could go on and on, but if this book is the truth (which i doubt) I'd feel disrespected and used, that's nothing for anyone to be proud of.. but i guess because it's MJ some people are willing to reduce their morals, but i wouldn't. So no jealousy here because by the sounds of what she says, he seems to have treated her like a groupie.

She says she was his friend for so long, but she wasn't even at Michael's funeral and Tatiana was, a simple video girl got an invite to say goodbye to him & Shana never, she watched from home just like the rest of the fans, because that's all she is, a fan.

I'm not willing to believe this story because it doesn't add up, she hasn't got anything personal of his, hasn't got a photo besides a fan meet and greet one, hasn't got many stories to share from her own personal experience. Most of the stories she writes about in the book are from second hand sources & about being an extra in ghosts, which is laughable considering she apparently knew Michael for so LONG(20 years), but has very little insight on who he truly was.



If Shana would've told the truth it would of been a better book. She had no reason to lie because afterall she did meet Michael Jackson and could've told the truth about her relationship working in close situations with him. But instead she chose to lie about a fake secret romance.


Please do your research on the author of this book before you buy it.

Inspiring and uplifting

I really really enjoyed this book. It is different to any other MJ books and refreshing to read new things about the man. I think that truthfully allot of fans find it hard to fully believe things that are said about his life particular his Love life because it was always such a mystery and allot of lies have been said before but I read the book with an open mind and really wanting it to be true and actually believing it is true to his life. Being a life long MJ fan made this book very very joyful and also deeply sad on certain parts but overall it was a fascinating and addictive book. I would recommend it. It made me feel like dreams can come true and I think we all need a bit of that optimism

Tragic Love Story💗💔😫

This is one of the most romantic stories I have ever read. But it is also so tragic. Because you could see what would have happened if they have gotten married. How happy they would have made each other. If he only had the courage to marry her. But it also has an important moral. I am a Christian. I have heard so many stories. Of how some guys who pray to God that one day they would have a wonderful wife. Then they meet their wonderful girl, and then they chicken out. And I bet Michael did the same. Even though I am so sorry for her for having to go through such an addictive and toxic relationship with Michael. I am really grateful that she wrote this book. And gave us a chance to understand more off the psychology of Michael Jackson

The story of a fan

At first, I was really interested in this book but then I watched Shana’s video on YouTube about Michael’s secret place or something and realized everything. I believe that the story is true but all in all she always was a fan of him more than a friend. This is Shana’s side of the story. What I mean is, yeah, probably he spent some time with her but their relationship wasn't very usual, Michael was too smart to not understand that she could do everything if he would want and you can feel that in this book or in the video on YouTube just by listening to the way she talks about him. She doesn't talk about him as a someone who was equal to her but the friendship is about being with a person no matter how popular he is and seeing him as someone who is equal to you. I really feel bad for Michael, he didn't have a lot of people around who treated him like a simple person and he really wanted to feel normal.

Wow

This book really paints Michael in a different light then what the audiences knew. He's seen here as a dominant, powerful, passionate man and lover but also as extremely vulnerable and most importantly, innocent and lost man. The fact he never just settled down with Shana truly mind blows me. I guess he never took their relationship as seriously as she did which is honestly heartbreaking. I feel for this woman and all the confusion she went through but I also truly believe she is being honest and genuine here as despite how she wrote about Michael you could tell she truly loved him.
