Paris Jackson is always rocking some cool and edgy outfit and that’s exactly what she did when she went out to dinner at Catch Steak with a friend in LA on Jan. 26. The 24-year-old looked fabulous when she wore a fitted, patterned T-shirt that showed off her black bra underneath.
Paris styled her patterned tee with a pair of high-waisted fitted brown wide-leg trousers that had a large silver zipper up the entire front. She accessorized with maroon patent leather Dr. Martens, a black leather purse, and a brown striped sweater. As for her glam, she had her blonde hair down in loose, voluminous waves while a cat-eye and a bright red lip tied her look together.
Paris loves wearing an outfit that shows off some skin and aside from this look, another one of our favorites was her see-through red lace bralette that she wore as a top and styled with a mid-rise red patent leather mini skirt.
Paris rocked a bright red lace bra with straps across the front while the entire front was see-through revealing her bare chest. Her toned abs and tiny waist were on display as she styled the top with a mid-rise red patent leather mini skirt. Draped off of her shoulders was a long orange trench coat with a smaller jacket tied around her waist. She topped her look off with chunky red leather combat boots, a brown leather backpack, and a ton of gold jewelry.
Another one of our favorite looks from Paris was her floral sweater dress that was completely cut out, revealing a nude bodysuit underneath. The entire back of the dress was see-through, showing off her cheeky bodysuit beneath.

Michael Jackson’s Thriller was my favorite album when I was a kid, and the actual song “Thriller” was just so freakin’ cool! I listened to that song over and over again on my parent’s record player. My favorite part of the song was Vincent Price’s rap. That voice is seared into my brain and that album was my introduction to the legendary actor.
Vincent Price was recommended for the party by Peggy Lipton, who was then married to Jackson’s producer Quincy Jones and knew him.
Price accepted the part and was offered two payment options. He told Johnny Carson that he was offered a one-time $20,000 fee or a percentage of the album proceeds. He ended up choosing the $20,000 which is absolutely crazy and Thriller sold over 110 million copies worldwide!
Price would have made so much more money had he chosen the album earnings. When Carson suggested that Price could have done a lot better if he made the other choice, he laughed and said “How well I know!”
After Price was locked in and the song’s recording session scheduled, the rap still needed to be written. Rod Temperton wrote the lyrics to the rap in a taxi on the way to the studio.
It’s reported that a recording engineer noted that while “Price was delighted to contribute his vocals to the song, he was startled by the headphones when he arrived at the studio, never having used them before. When he reluctantly put them on, he jumped out of his chair in surprise upon hearing the funky music track he was to speak over. He ultimately needed a little help with his cues to speak over the music, but he ended up nailing it.”
Price recorded his portion of the song in only two takes. Quincy Jones praised Price’s work and accuracy as “fabulous.” You can listen to the recording session for the rap below! You can also listen to our Secret Level podcast where we talk about the making of the music video here!

It’s safe to say most music fans will know that Billie Jean was not Michael Jackson’s lover, but she was inspired by some true and disturbing events.
Jackson released the track in 1982, after he’d moved on from the Jackson 5 to continue a solo career. It featured on his sixth studio album, Thriller, and earned the singer two Grammy awards and an American Music Award.
While I’m sure he welcomed the recognition, Jackson probably could have lived without the inspiration behind Billie Jean, a woman he has confirmed was based on people he and his brothers were ‘plagued with over the years’ after they rose to fame.
In his 1988 autobiography, Moonwalk, Jackson said: “There never was a real Billie Jean. The girl in the song is a composite of people my brothers have been plagued with over the years. I could never understand how these girls could say they were carrying someone’s child when it wasn’t true.”
Jackson’s explanation for the track is reflected in the lyrics, which read: “Billie Jean is not my lover / She’s just a girl who claims that I am the one / But the kid is not my son.”
However, in 1991, Jackson’s biographer J. Randy Taraborrelli wrote in his book The Magic and the Madness that Jackson had received letters 10 years prior from a woman who claimed he was the father of her twins, which could inform Jackson’s reference to women claiming to be carrying his children.
Whether that woman was the inspiration or not, the King of Pop was adored by fans across the globe and it’s clear some went further than others.
One fan, who identified herself as Billie Jean Jackson, is said to have believed that Jackson had asked her to marry him, and that he was the father of her children.
“He loves me dearly,” Billie Jean said, before claiming that the lyric ‘Billie Jean is not my lover’ actually indicated the opposite; that Jackson was her lover.
When her fascination with Jackson became too much, Billie Jean was hit with a court order to stay away from the pop star. She had been found to have sent her medical bills to Jackson, and even encouraged a boutique to charge him for her wedding dress.
Billie Jean was arrested and jailed for two years after violating the court order, but she continued to express hopes that Jackson would come and get her out from behind bars, telling him: “I miss you.”
The fan is said to have continued to harass Jackson until his death in 2009.

On Friday (Oct. 28), Prince, 25, sat with Good Morning Britain and, according to Metro UK, explained, “He’s got his own genre, and he’s definitely an amazing artist. But, the ‘King of Pop’ was a moniker that really my dad earned.”
He continued, “With so many other social factors that you have to take into consideration at that time, I do feel that my father is the King of Pop, will always be the King of Pop, and it’s not something that you can ever take away, because we’ve just evolved so much as a society that those same factors will never be the same. So, when you look at from where my father started to where he ended, versus where all these other people started to where they ended, it’s just night and day of a difference.”
Earlier this year, Taj Jackson—the “Remember The Time” crooner’s nephew and son of Tito Jackson—also spoke out against Styles being considered the “new King of Pop.”
“There is no new King of Pop,” he tweeted. “You don’t own the title @RollingStone, and you didn’t earn it, my uncle did. Decades of dedication and sacrifice. The title has been retired. No disrespect to @Harry_Styles, he’s mega talented. Give him his own unique title.”
The late global superstar‘s acclaimed Diamond-certified album, Thriller, turns 40 this November. The feat will be commemorated with a physical rerelease featuring new music. The making of the album will also be detailed in a forthcoming documentary, helmed by Nelson George. Additionally, an unnamed biopic, supported by Michael Jackson’s estate, is in the works. Both film projects do not have confirmed release dates.
Its titular video was the first music video to ever be inducted into the Library of Congress’ National Film Registry and set a precedent for visuals to follow. Revisit it below.

Michael Jackson is still among the biggest pop stars ever. Jackson sold about one billion records around the world. However, the ‘King of Pop’ was also an exceptional dancer who invented iconic moves like the ‘moon walk’. To maintain his dancing chops, Jackson worked with a personal trainer and former Mr. Universe, Lou Ferrigno. A good friend of Micheal, Ferrigno, was training the pop icon for his comeback right before Jackson’s untimely death in 2009.

Ferrigno reveals how Michael Jackson ate and worked out
Lou Ferrigno became famous after becoming Mr. Universe and starring as the Incredible Hulk. However, what many don’t know is that Michael Jackson appointed Ferrigno as his personal trainer. In an interview with ABC news, Ferrigno stated, “I think he was a vegetarian. And he only ate once a day. But I just told him the proper supplements to take,” however, Ferrigno thought, “He (Michael Jackson) was dancing as good as anyone.”
Lou Ferrigno also said, “He (Michael Jackson) didn’t want to weight train. So he mostly wanted to deal with flexibility and conditioning,” and that, “He didn’t look like he was in pain”. The former Mr. Universe also said that while training for the tour, Michael focused more on cardio and core training.
A lot of people know that Lou Ferrigno was the body behind the original “Incredible Hulk”. What few people may not know is that – Ferrigno was a friend of Michael Jackson, and that he was the one to train him until two weeks before his death.

According to the Incredible Hulk actor, Michael was in good shape and had a high energy level during his workouts. Lou also said that he is an expert and would have advised Michael if thought the King of Pop’s diet and workout schedule was having a negative effect.

Jackson was 50 when he died. It was later reported that around the time of his death, Michael Jackson weighed only around 130 lbs. Considering he was well over 5’5” Ft tall, that’s quite a low body weight.
The King of Pop may have not been very healthy
Lou Ferrigno found nothing wrong with Jackson’s diet and performance, however, conflicting reports about his health have emerged. In 2013, a Harvard sleep researcher claimed that the pop singer suffered from a complete loss of sleep. It’s also a proven fact that Jackson routinely took the drug propofol to help him sleep at night.
