More About This Title Michael and Me
More than six 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, 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.
Shana Mangatal has over twenty-five years of experience in talent and sports management, public relations, music, film, and television. She has worked with Michael Jackson, David Copperfield, Magic Johnson, Boyz II Men, Ruben Studdard, Dolly Parton, Dwight Yoakam, and other entertainment legends. She has also appeared in a variety of films and television shows, including House Party, Hairspray, Family Matters, A Different World, Fresh Prince of Bel Air, Martin, and two of Michael Jackson’s short films. She lives in Los Angeles.
“Michael had deep feelings for Shana. She knew a side of him that he kept closely guarded. I am so happy she is finally ready to tell her story.” —Scott “House” Shaffer, personal assistant to Michael Jackson, 1991–1998
