Simpsons Star Talks About Michael
Yeardley Smith, who pays Lisa Simpson on the long running hit TV show The Simpsons, has reminisced about the time Michael Jackson came to record for the episode ‘Stark Raving Dad’ in 1991.
Remembering what he looked like, the voice actress said:
“I remember he wore his fedora and he wore his high water pants and his white socks”.
She also spoke about how polite he was and how she was baffled that he turned his light off over his script, yet could still see.
Smith also recalled the moment Kipp Lennon came in to record the vocals for the song ‘Lisa It’s Your Birthday,’ a track penned by Michael but due to contractual issues the King of Pop couldn’t sing himself. Lennon had to therefore imitate Michael right in front of the man himself.
