Farrah Fawcett & Michael Jackson @ Vanity Fair

Farrah Fawcett and Michael Jackson co-grace the cover and pages of Vanity Fair September 2009 splitting issues. The posthumous interviews were complied from Michael and Farrah vintage interviews and from their friends and family. The two Vanity Fair‘s cover stories September 2009 issue hit newsstands in New York and Los Angeles on Wednesday, August 5 and nationally on Tuesday, August 11. And here are some blog snippets –

As for reality, do you still enjoy meeting your fans?: I enjoy all that sometimes, seeing people who love me, or buy my records. I think it’s fun, and I enjoy meeting my fans and I think it’s important. But sometimes people think you owe your life to them; they have a bad attitude, like ‘I made you who you are.’ That may be true—but not that one person. Sometimes you have to say to them, If the music wasn’t good, you wouldn’t have bought it. Because some of them think they actually own you.

On MJ’s declaration in 1984 that the original mix of Thriller had sounded like crap: Oh, it was terrible. And I cried at the listening party. I said, I’m sorry—we can’t release this. I called a meeting with Quincy [Jones], and everybody at the [record] company was screaming that we had to have it out and there was a deadline, and I said, I’m sorry, I’m not releasing it. I said, It’s terrible. So we re-did a mix a day. Like a mix a day. And we rested two days, then we did a mixing. We were overworked, but it all came out O.K.

Fawcett had always been more complicated than the clichés, the realities of her life far darker than the sunny image she projected. The gap between her public image and private reality was wide: I’m always more comfortable when I have on hardly any make-up, my hair is brown and I’m very unattractive.
