    Bobby Brown says he’s the one who taught Michael Jackson how to do his signature moonwalk.

    In an interview with The Cipher, the New Edition frontman said his Orchard Park hometown in Boston was the birthplace of the infamous dance move.

    “I had a few moves that was just super. Plus, I was the first one in Orchard Park to do the moonwalk. So, the moonwalk was one of my signature moves. Nobody. I had brought it up from down South. It was something that just killed the game once I brought it up the East Coast.”- Bobby Brown

    According to Bobby, he even passed his moonwalk down to MJ at the King of Pop’s home.

    “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.” – Bobby Brown

    Even though Bobby’s taking credit, he says MJ was the one who perfected the move.

    Do you believe him?

    1. I believe him. As he said, he showed MJ his version of the moon walk. MJ put his own spin on it….there u have it.

    2. No, Jeffrey Daniels of Shalamar owned this years ago. MJ has been doing variations of the moonwalk since the 70’s. Not hating on Bobby but I highly doubt his claim.

    3. Lies.. the 1st person to do the moon walk was Bill Bailey. Then, the King of POP brought it to mainstream.

    4. Why he didn’t say it when he was alive.. Michael is not here to say anything about who taught him..
      I thought he said he saw some guy in the streets doing it and he stopped and ask them, what was that and started doing it.. He learned a lot of dance moves from watching others dance, he had that ability to be able to watch and coordinate his body to do it. I taught myself how to ballet dance, when I finally took lessons at 12 the teacher asked me how did I learn so much, the dictionary had the moves and I just practice until I got it right.. I did the same thing for sign language, I learned it from Webster dictionary, something kids don’t do today..

    5. Bobby Brown has been through alot in his life. Although he was very talented in his prime (Late 80’s), He should not spread lies and he needs to keep MJ’s name out of his mouth!

    6. I thought MJ learned how to moonwalk watching Jeffrey Daniel do it on Soul Train…

      Bobby, I loved ya since I was a tot when you were with New Edition, but…you’re full of shit. Still love ya, though.

    7. First he said Janet and him were together but Joe didn’t like them together because he was black now this… yeah I don’t believe it sorry.

      He was with janet for a min while she was young and impressionable.

      She had to sneak around just to see a member of her own race. She was drawn to the “bad boy” aura of a ghetto music star. They drifted apart because janet’s life was more structured than bobby’s.

      I know because i read bobby brown’s book so i know what im talkin about.

    9. Michael Jackson first did the moonwalk in one of his videos LONG BEFORE NEW EDITION AND BOBBY BROWN CAME OUT …WTF is he TALKING ABOUT ? IM 50 YEARS OLD PEOPLE …I REMEMBER , IT WAS THE GUY FROM SHALAMAR JEFFREY SOMETHING WHO TAUGHT HIM, HE WAS NOT ONLY A MEMBER OF SHALAMAR HE WAS A SOUL TRAIN DANCER TOO. OH GOD WHAT DRUGS WILL DO TO A MIND .

    10. Bobby Brown is CRAZY but I really love him, he’s funny to me and I do believe he’s telling the truth, why would he lie? What he gone gain from it? If Ralph song for Bobbby on that song why Bobby could not have showed Michael moon walk?

    11. I heard the same about him seeing the demons walk backwards in hell and his screaming came from hearing when they hit some one the scream.

    12. Jeffrey Daniels taught Micheal to moonwalk. He spent hours working with him. Jeffrey is now a judge on Nigerian Idol show and prob can’t be bothered with cocaine bobby. Jody Watley can attest to that.
