Watch Chris Rock Talk About How Michael Jackson Was the Michael Jackson of Getting High on The Approval Matrix

The Approval Matrix, Sundance's new show inspired by the New York Magazine feature that introduced the phrase "highbrow despicable" into the world, airs its second episode next Monday. In addition to moderating a weekly panel of guests to riff on culture both high and low, host Neal Brennan went directly to several of his fellow comedians — like Chris Rock, Jon Stewart, and Amy Poehler. Here, he asks Rock about whether or not he thinks that fame (and by extension, "we") killed Michael Jackson.
