Tavis Smiley, renown television host and political/social commentator, is extending his talents once again to the pen via ‘Before You Judge Me’ – an in depth look at the tragic last days of King of Pop Michael Jackson.

Now, while blazing the promo trail in support of the project, Smiley dishes with ExtraTV on his intention to turn the book into a TV series and even reflects on MJ’s reported longtime feud with fellow pop icon Prince.  Details inside:

Indeed, despite the absence of an official report on what caused the ‘Purple Rain’ maestro’s demise, Simmons seems sure it was related to drugs and alcohol.  See his damning words below:
