More Michael Jackson Items On Auction. 17-08-'17

This time is items from films and short films!

3 items will be auctioned on September 26 part of a “Treasure from Film & Television” form Propstore, the auction house dedicated to movie and TV sets and costumes.

Werewolf MaskThriller mask:

The highlight of this auction for MJ fans is a magnificent (and scary) Werewolf mask used for 'Thriller'! Yes, this is Thriller… Thriller year!

Just be aware, this was not wore by Michael but only use to get the make-up right! Still, a great insight of the work done on the 35 years old music video (I know, short film) that changed the music industry!

A Michael Jackson ‘Cat-Face’ paint-test mask made for the classic John Landis-directed music video Michael Jackson’s 'Thriller'. This mask was made to test the paint scheme for the cat monster Michael (Michael Jackson) turned into during the fake film at the beginning of the music video.

Made of latex, the mask resembles a sharp-fanged beast with yellow cat eyes. The piece is coloured with acrylic paints that stops at the edges. Taped inside the mask is a handwritten note which is dated 2/24/1988 and outlines the steps to accomplish the paint scheme. The lot shows minor wear to the latex, with a small tear at the corner of the mouth. However, it remains in overall very fine condition. Dimensions: 25 cm x 22 cm x 14 cm (10" x 8 1/2" x 5 1/2")

Moonwalker MaskPrice: £2,000 – 3,000

Moonwalker mask:

The second item is from Moonwalker and again this is a mask:

A Michael Jackson robotic facial appliance from the production of his music anthology film 'Moonwalker'. This appliance was made for the scene when Jackson transformed into a robotic spaceship.

This latex mask was cast from a mould and is detailed with geometric, robot-like cheeks. The mask is painted silver to appear metallic. The appliance shows minor wear due to production use and age, but remains in very fine condition. Dimensions: 18 cm x 13 cm x 20 cm (7" x 5" x 8")

Price: £1,000 – 1,500

Captain EO PlanetCaptain EO planet:

The last “little” piece is from the miniature of the planet where 'Captain EO' land. A very small piece of that is on auction joined with few copy of documents and drawings:

A section of model miniature, concept artwork and behind-the-scenes photographs from Francis Ford Coppola’s sci-fi amusement experience 'Captain EO'. The miniature formed part of the expansive set used for the scene in which 'Captain EO' (Michael Jackson) and his crew descended to the planet’s surface.

Made of plastic with a board backing, the piece is finished in grey paint, with assorted electronics used for additional detailing. The model miniature is accompanied by six sheets of printed concept artwork, some with pencil annotations, along with seven photographs detailing the construction of the trench set and a length of 70mm film from the filming of the trench scene. Dimensions (miniature section): 6 cm x 37 cm x 44 cm (2 1/2" x 14 1/2" x 17 1/2")

Price: £500 – 700

Uri Geller's New Museum Features Paintings By Michael Jackson's Chimp. 16-08-'17

The spoon-bender hopes the “amazing” art will attract tourists from all over the world.

Geller, 70, a close friend of the late King of Pop, promised the animal’s paintings will take pride of place when an exhibition opens in Jaffa, Israel, next year.

He tweeted a photo of himself alongside the pictures with the message: “I’ve just received 3 amazing painting by Bubbles, Michael Jackson’s chimpanzee!

Uri Geller
Geller hopes the 'amazing' art will attract tourists from all over the world.

“They are for my museum.’’

Bubbles, 34, has been turning out art from his new home at the Center for Great Apes in Wauchula, Florida.

Five paintings recently sold for £577 each to raise cash for the sanctuary.

Twelve others have gone on display in Miami, where gallery chief Yansi Meoqui has insisted they are “incredibly popular”.

He added that the works “show a very individual style”.

Geller, a former co-chairman of Exeter City FC, has announced his museum will also feature rocks taken from his own island – Lamb in Scotland’s Firth of Forth.

He believes the island, which he bought for £30,000 in 2009, contains a secret stash of buried treasure.

Riley Keough Opens Up On Michael Jackson As A Stepfather. 16-08-'17

She's the granddaughter of Elvis Presley and the step-daughter of Michael Jackson.

And Riley Keough admits her childhood was anything but ordinary while appearing on the Late, Late Show with James Corden on Monday (August 14).

'I didn't know Elvis, but I did know Michael,' the 28-year-old actress, who is the daughter of Lisa Marie Presley, explained.

'He'd get me lots of toys and things I wanted. One time he got me this really nice watch at Disneyland, it was a 'Beauty and the Beast' watch.'

Riley's mother Lisa Marie was married to the King of Pop from 1994 to 1996 when Riley was between the ages of five and seven.

When Corden asked the actress about Bubbles, Michael Jackson's famous chimpanzee, she confirmed that she had, indeed, met the famous chimp.

Riley Keough
Riley Keough reveals she brought one of stepdad Michael Jackson's chimps to school as a child and talks life on Neverland Ranch.

Everyone loves Bubbles! When Corden asked the actress about Bubbles, Michael Jackson's famous chimpanzee, she confirmed that she had, indeed, met the famous chimp.

'There were a few different chimps that I remember, I don't remember which one was which,' she admitted.

She said she remembers one of them pulling down curtains in the house and reveals one went to school with her, although she can't confirm if it was Bubbles or not.

So there were multiple chimps, but we only knew about Bubbles, the other chimps must have hated Bubbles,' Corden joked. 'People would be like, why is Bubbles getting all the love.'

Billy Eichner, who was the other guest on the couch, was fascinated by Riley's experiences: 'You were at Neverland and Graceland,' Billy exclaimed, throwing up his hands. 'I've never even been to San Diego.'

The actress, who comes from Hollywood royalty, was recently filming her latest role alongside Al Pacino in New York City.

Michael Jackson

'La Isla Bonita' Was Originally Offered To Michael Jackson. 14-08-'17

Madonna has had a number of key collaborators over the years (Shep Pettibone, Stephen Bray, Mirwais and William Orbit all spring to mind), but Patrick Leonard was arguably the most integral to her legacy. Together they conjured up dozens of pop classics including 'Live To Tell', 'Like A Prayer' and 'Frozen'. He recently gave an interview about their working relationship and shares a couple fascinating tidbits. One of most interesting is the fact that “La Isla Bonita” was originally offered to Michael Jackson.

“After the Victory Tour, I was still in touch with Michael Jackson and Quincy Jones and doing some work with them and Quincy called me and said, ‘I want to do something sort of Sade-like for Michael — would you write something?’ and so I wrote that song and sent it to him with some form of a vocal on it and the phrase 'la isla bonita,’” Patrick tells Boy Culture. “He called up and said, ‘Ah, I just don’t think it’s for Michael.’ Madonna and I were getting together, so I showed it to her and she said, ‘Oh, I like this, let’s work on it.’”

“So we sat and changed, you know, whatever we changed and she changed lyrics and we reconstructed it. It’s a good song, for sure. I don’t know why she would return to that one more than others, to be honest. But I like it. It’s always easy — over the years, I learned to play 'Live To Tell' and I can play 'La Isla Bonita'. All the rest I have to re-learn them.”

South Park's Top 10 Celebrity Cameos Revealed As Show Turns 20: From Kanye West To Michael Jackson. 13-08-'17

South Park - The JeffersonsSouth Park has been keeping viewers in hysterics for 20 years now with its hilarious social commentary and cutting digs at some very famous faces.

Since first hitting our screens in 1997 and now spanning 221 episodes over 20 seasons, South Park has taught us, if nothing else, (probably nothing) that no one is safe from creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker.

Their unique brand of torturous mocking is so absurd that even the most super-cereal celebrities can do nothing but sit back and laugh - even Kanye West.

To mark 20 years of South Park we have dug deep into the archives of the cult show to bring you the best and most ridiculous celebrity ‘cameos’ ever have the dubious honour of being in South Park.

Michael Jackson - 'The Jeffersons':
A particularly significant episode as ‘Jeffersons’ marks the first time Michael Jackson was introduced to the world of South Park in role that he continued to reprise throughout numerous other series, playing a central role in another four episodes.

Stan, Kyle, Cartman and Kenny notice that someone new has moved into the Donovans' former residence. A little boy named Blanket tells them they moved to South Park to escape city life. They then realize the house is filled with toys and games, and the backyard is a funfair.

They meet Blanket's father Mr. Jefferson, a wealthy, eccentric, effeminate, pale-skinned man-child (obviously Michael Jackson wearing a fake moustache, though everyone remains oblivious and it's never explicitly mentioned).

Coming at the height of Michael Jackson's highly documented public problems, The Jeffersons spawned what might be the ultimate and longest running celebrity ‘cameo’ joke South Park have ever done.

Look here for South Park's top 10.
