Brooke Shields Talks About 'Asexual' Michael Jackson

Brooke Shields says she was 13 when she first met Michael Jackson and "instantly became friends" with the singer.

"Nothing was jaded about him," the now 44-year-old tells 'Rolling Stone' magazine for its special issue about the King of Pop.

Describing herself as 'the most celebrated virgin ever' at the time, Brooke says the two became especially close since sexual tension wasn't on the table.

Shields explains women "wanted to throw themselves at Michael and feel like they were going to teach him (about sex)." But she never saw a romantic side to him, and says if anything, Jackson became "more asexual" in her eyes as they grew up.

That's not to say he wasn't curious about her early relationships and Michael was still a big kid on the inside: "He was like a little kid who talked about the bases — what first base was, what second base was."

"It sounded very odd to the outside, I can imagine, but to the inside, to someone who's never really left his bubble, you can understand how he would be curious."

She recalls the fun they had at Elizabeth Taylor's wedding in 1991: "We snuck in and took pictures of ourselves next to her dress... We always seemed to revert to being little kids. When we were together, we were two little kids having fun."
