Best-selling author and radio host, Deepak Chopra, who knew Michael Jackson for 20 years, talked with MSNBC ‘Countdown’ host Keith Olbermann about the devotion of Jackson’s fans. Chopra said he had talked with the singer a few times in the past couple weeks, saying Jackson “sounded really good” and was “really excited about the concert.” Chopra said that when Jackson asked for a oxycontin prescription from the doctor, he quized him about why he’d need the narcotic and Jackson became defensive and would avoid contact. Chopra also expressed anger at the problem in Hollywood with doctors who are “legalized drug pushers”. Watch the segment, aired Friday (June 26), below.
