Michael Jackson Interview
Issue: June-July 1995
Story Headline: Michael & Me
Background: In a rare occasion, Quincy Jones convinced Michael to dress up in hip-hop gear as he took part in a photo shoot with the mega-producer/VIBE founder’s daughter, Kidada. Loved ones reflected on Michael’s greatness, something rarely seen while an artist is still living and even more meaningful after his death. At this point in his career, the king of pop only continued to establish himself as one of the greatest to ever do it, dropping HIStory, which ended up becoming the best-selling multiple-disc album of all-time, with 20 million copies sold worldwide.
Memorable Quote: "Michael's just as regular as everyone else. We talked about all the normal stuff guys talk about. He's real smart. People forget that he's the most incredible entertainer we've seen in our lifetime. His name is Michael Jackson, not Super Michael Jackson. He makes mistakes just like all of us.” –Heavy D
