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.
