Bobby Brown always knew how to dance, but recently made some comments about teaching Michael Jackson some dance moves.
Brown according to Love B. Scott is taking credit for teaching Jackson the famous moonwalk dance.
During an interview Brown mentioned that the moonwalk was one of his signature moves and brought it to the East Coast.
He allegedly saw a young man in Alabama do a sliding move and then he changed it up a bit.
Brown said, “Actually, I was the one that taught Michael how to do it. We was poppin,’ he was watchin’ us pop. He saw me do the moonwalk. And he [asked], ‘What is that?’ And I did it again. He just watched it, and he just started doin’ it.”
Although Brown says he is the creator of the famous dance, he did give Jackson credit for perfecting the moonwalk.
