Conrad Murray spoke out for the first time since being thrown in jail for Michael Jackson's death, and lets just say he had some very interesting things on his mind.
The former doctor continued to argue his innocence in an exclusive interview with Anderson Cooper, saying he was actually very close with the King of Pop before he died:
"I'm an innocent man, Anderson. I maintain that innocence. I must tell you, I'm extremely sorry that Michael has passed. It's a tremendous loss for me, it's a burden I've been carrying for the longest while and it's a burden I will carry for an indefinite period of time. The loss is just overwhelming. He was very close to me, I was close to him, we were absolutely great friends."
He also says that he did not receive a fair trial, claiming the judge was not impartial and that on more than one occasion, evidence was ruined by the district attorney.
The interview was not without its fair share of strange twists and turns, as Conrad kept Coops on his toes by talking over the anchor and offering long-winded and unrelated responses to his questions.
But the oddest moment came when the former doctor chose to sing a couple of lines from The Little Boy That Santa Claus Forgot, saying the song perfectly summed up his life and relationship with Michael.
Not even a pro like Anderson knew how to deal with that!
Conrad's lawyer Valerie Wass was also there to make sure everything stayed kosher, but she definitely had her hands full as he often interrupted or spoke over her any time she tried to prevent him from answering any questions about the AEG lawsuit.
He's currently appealing the court's ruling and is hoping to get his medical license back, but we're not quite sure this interview helped his cause!
