#Roommates, now y’all know when you think of “the moonwalk” you instantly think of #MichaelJackson. While many of us assume Michael created the signature dance move, it seems #BobbyBrown is spilling tea about how the moonwalk was introduced to Michael… through him.
BET reports that in a long discussion with The Cipher, Bobby breaks down how he introduced the moonwalk to the King of Pop. In the interview Bobby says: “I was the first one in Orchard Park to do the moonwalk. So, the moonwalk was one of my signature moves. Nobody. I had brought it up from down South. It was something that just killed the game once I brought it up the East Coast.”
When asked about how it was introduced to Michael, Bobby recounts a time where him and the rest of New Edition were invited to Michael’s home where they eventually started dancing and “he saw me do the moonwalk. And he [asked], ‘What is that?’ And I did it again,” he shared. “He just watched it, and he just started doin’ it.”
Though Bobby admits he may have taught Michael how to do it, Michael gets credit for perfecting it. #Roommates, who knew, Bobby was responsible for the signature move?!
