    Did you know The Girl Is Mine was considered controversial at the time and some radio stations refused to play it, because of it’s interracialal romance? It was assumed that the girl in question was white and they felt uncomfortable for a black man to claim she love him more than a white man and also to say “the doggona girl is mine” .. knowing “doggone” was a euphemisim for “God damn” … very interesing eh? It makes sense when you think about it – this song while considered “fluff” by song critics, was actually a very BOLD move on Michael’s part ..
