See Why 80s Singer Terence Trent D’Arby Said “MJ Was A Pain In My @^*!”
It was 1987 when this “Sign Your Name Across My Heart” singer hit the scene. Do you remember? We were told he was going to be the next Michael Jackson, James Brown, Prince and Sam Cooke all rolled into one.
What happened? Terence Trent D’Arby fell off the music scene about as fast as he jumped on. Well we found him and he had a whole lot to say about the tension between himself and the late, great Michael Jackson!
