A British newspaper has revealed that ‘a source’ has spoken of Michael’s desire to study Fine Art at a University. It seems that Paris encouraged her Daddy to go for it, and his assistants contacted Christie’s Education and Sotheby’s Institute of Art, both in New York with a view to Michael studying there on a year-long course from September 2010.
The course Michael had pencilled in was called ‘Certificate in Modern Art, Connoisseurship and the History of the Art Market’. “Michael regretted the fact that he never got the chance to go to university because his music career started so early,” the source said. “But he made up for it by reading widely. He absolutely devoured books on art and crafts and was an avid collector. He had an insatiable thirst for knowledge.”
