In a recent interview for Paper Mag, Make-up artist Kabuki Starshine talks about the time he worked with Michael Jackson for L’Uomo Vogue Photo shoot.

How did it come about that you worked with Michael Jackson?

That was a big mystery. I didn’t realize how it came about. I thought maybe because I’d worked with Macaulay, but no. Actually, Bruce Weber, whom I’d never worked with before, thought of me for that project. It was for L’Uomo Vogue, and it was the first shoot Michael had done in 10 years. They asked me to come back and do the cover of Ebony with him too. Those were his last photo shoots. He was really lovely. I can relive it all in my mind because I was so full of adrenaline when it was going on. I had to talk to him on the phone before I met him. I was at a cash machine and the phone rang and it was his people clearing the line to make sure it was me. He was gonna call me in seven minutes, so I ran home, not wanting to be on the street with sirens and street noise. I got so nervous, I had to breathe into a ziploc bag. I was hyperventilating. But he sounded so scared himself that I instantly calmed down. I sort of felt for him. And when I met him in person, he had dark glasses on so you couldn’t see his eyes. He seemed very shy, but when we started to work together, I guess he got my energy, and he was so sweet, quite considerate of me and my working process. read more

Norman Seeff lost footages

June 1, 2017 • By

Despite attempts of biopics to remember MJ or show some of his history, there is also one Michael Jackson film locked in a vault that shows the true unguarded Michael Jackson in 1982 — and the film has not even been developed in the past 35 years.

Unlike grainy home movies or extra footage found behind-the-scenes of making videos, this film of Michael Jackson is likely lengthy and has insights into his life that few fans may have been exposed to.

As if that was not enough, there is also a chance that the same person has another film with Michael Jackson in it that also has not been developed that includes the Jackson 5. read more

GOTTFRIED HELNWEIN photo of Michael Jackson on Auction.

May 11, 2017 • By

A photo of Michael Jackson taken by artist and photographer Gottfried Helnwein is currently on auction for €4,000.00 and the auction will take place on June 9.
The picture was taken in 1988.

Gottfried Helnwein (born 8 October 1948) is an Austrian-Irish visual artist. He has worked as a painter, draftsman, photographer, muralist, sculptor, installation and performance artist, using a wide variety of techniques and media.

His work is concerned primarily with psychological and sociological anxiety, historical issues and political topics. His subject matter is the human condition. The metaphor for his art is dominated by the image of the child, particularly the wounded child, scarred physically and emotionally from within. His works often reference taboo and controversial issues from recent history, especially the Nazi rule and the horror of the Holocaust. As a result, his work is often considered provocative and controversial. read more
