"Of course. Why not?," Jackson said when asked about the controversial practice.
"If you're going to be a pedophile, if you're going to be Jack the Ripper, if you're going to be a murderer, it's not a good idea," he said during his first interview since his arrest on child molestation charges. "That I am not."
Jackson continued to vehemently deny the charges against him, telling Bradley, "Before I would hurt a child, I would slit my wrists."
He also told Bradley he would no longer live at his Neverland Ranch after the highly publicized police search of the premises.
"I won't live there ever again," he said. "It's a house now. It's not a home anymore. I'll only visit."
The interview took place Christmas night.
