Steve Jobs only listened to Billie Jean during photo shoots

November 22, 2017 • By

Just because it is mid-week and at MJVibe, we love little facts that made us smile!

Everybody knows Steve Jobs (Just look at your iphone LOL) but little we knew that the man was actually listening to Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean” for his photo shoots. And “Billie Jean” only!

The fact came from Andy Cunningham, who was Jobs’ publicist back then.

Steve Jobs was a real fan of the top-tier business press. So he loved Fortune, Forbes, Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Businessweek, Time Magazine a little bit, and of course the major television stuff he was a big fan of, although he was not very good in front of a camera. So working with him was kind of a challenge in getting him prepared for these interviews, he was very touchy about the photographs so you couldn’t actually take too much time with a photo. It had to be quick, it had to be fast, and he had to like the photographer. And if he didn’t like the photographer they were pretty much dismissed from the room and we had to get another photographer back in. read more

    Michael Jackson New York Mansion for sale

    November 16, 2017 • By

    The celebrity connections at 4 East 74th Street date all the way back to its construction in 1898 when architect Alexander Welch was commissioned to design the Beaux-Arts townhouse. Welch served as the consulting architect on the restorations of Alexander Hamilton’s Harlem home Hamilton Grange and George Washington’s headquarters in White Plains.

    The Upper East Side home was bought by Francis Lynde Stetson and his wife. Corporate attorney Stetson was at one time the law partner of Grover Cleveland. According to Curbed, who first spotted the listing, in more recent years, the 16-room mansion has counted among its residents artist Marc Chagall and Michael Jackson, who rented it in the 90s. Now don’t get too exited, Michael stayed there from August 1999 to February 2000 but he apparently rented the mansion few times before hand. read more
