This past Friday, The Oprah Show aired an interview between Oprah Winfrey and J.K. Rowling, a meeting of the billionaires club, if you will.
The beloved author of the Harry Potter series discussed, among other things, the unique institution of celebrity from a writer's perspective and her difficult journey from single mother to billionaire.
One interesting revelation Rowling made included some lucrative, almost unbelievable offers she passed up once her series achieved the worldwide acclaim it enjoys today - including one from the King of Pop himself.
Rowling divulged that Michael Jackson approached her to turn her series into a musical. The author, however, turned him down.
Thankfully, Rowling did not pass up the chance to turn the Harry Potter series into a fantastical theme park, because she "knew it would be incredible."
