Katherine Jackson: MJ Danced to a Washing Machine

8/4/2010 8:01 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Katherine Jackson says she vividly remembers the first time she knew MJ would be a superstar -- and it all harkens back to the time baby Michael danced to the rhythm of an old washing machine.

According to Mama Jackson, the King of Pop-in-a-diaper danced to the rhythm of the family's old Maytag washing machine with "perfect timing" -- and she knew right then and there that her son was destined for greatness.

The video is all part of a longer interview from the website selling Katherine's book -- and we're told you can expect to see the whole thing in a big documentary about MJ's life.

This isn't "new" news. J Randy Taraborrelli wrote about this in his MJ book, in the chapter "Joseph hits Michael"
