Michael Jackson Wore A Striped Shirt

I decided to remake the photo of Michael Jackson wearing a appealing striped shirt. It came as a cool resemblance of a shirt I own. Not sure of the name brand of his shirt but my shirt is from The Limited. I also was able to obtain a black scarf to wear around my neck and had an umbrella with me as well.

We Miss You, Ms. Houston!

Yesterday, I missed the Soul Night Out Tribute to Whitney Houston and Don Cornelius, but I did make it out to the Apollo Theater in Harlem to pay my respects to the Queen of Pop. I am still in a bit of disbelief about her death as I hear her songs on the radio and see her videos on television. No more than a month ago I was laughing to her in the movie "Waiting to Exhale." This past December I was playing my "The Preacher's Wife" cassette tape for the holiday season. Just seeing her name on the Apollo marquee gave me chills because it read "In Memory of Whitney Houston A True Music Icon 1963-2012."

When my friend Shauna and I arrived at the Apollo, we saw a line of poster boards attached to the fence next to the building filled with signatures from fans from all over. People were signing as we walked up. People were also selling t-shirts and buttons. I signed on one of the boards as well as Shauna. Being that she was born in Newark, NJ like we were, I mentioned that Newark will not be the same without her and I mentioned Brick City love always. I signed it "Dom. "Mikette" Wilson" as well. After we took a few photos, we were on our way back home with the lovely tunes of Ms. Houston in our heads and the love for her in our hearts.

Zair's Birthday Party and Performance

Saturday evening, I was a surprise guest as Mikette for a child's birthday party. They were so happy to see that they had a Michael Jackson impersonator at the party. Once I got there, I was ready to dance. I gave them my all and they all enjoyed. I had so much fun dancing with the children as well. I was teaching them the moonwalk, "Thriller," and "Beat It." I had a great time. I truly love children. Too bad I don't have video footage of my performance this time.

Rest in Peace Whitney Houston

"I am deeply saddened by the passing of such a legendary artist. My prayers are extended to her family and friends in this difficult time." - Mikette

August 9, 1963 – February 11, 2012


I'm still in shock that the legendary singer Whitney Houston has passed away. I was just thinking about how I grew up listening to her music and watching her films. She was such an amazing singer and performer, words can't even explain. It seems like the music will forever have a gap within it. I honestly am crying as I type this post because not only have we lost her these past few months, but also Etta James (January 25, 1938 – January 20, 2012) and Don Cornelius (September 27, 1936 – February 1, 2012). I just couldn't find the strength to write any RIP posts. This is getting too sad for me. My prayers are extended to her family and friends during this difficult time. Rest in peace to the Queen of Pop.

Michael Jackson 1979 Photo Shoot Remake

I decided to remake a cool photo of Michael Jackson from 1979.

I thrifted a gold shiny shirt that comes down to the elbows rolled up. I'm not too sure what color he is wearing because the photograph is in black and white. The style of the shirt was so close I had to do this shot. Of course you know I couldn't be bare so I did wear a light colored sports bra underneath. I wore blue jeans as well. Then I converted the photo to black and white before cross coloring it. I just love how he looks in this photo. He also made a simple but cool fashion statement.

Dirty Diana: D.I.Y.

If this is your first time checking out my blog, I usually do a D.I.Y (Do it yourself) post on a few of Michael Jackson's signature looks from videos to the stage. I do this so everyone can get an inexpensive chance to look like and become the King of Pop. Being a tribute artist can be quite an investment but for those on a budget can make it work and look good.
This time I'm going to do the look from the Bad era from the "Dirty Diana" video. This is definitely one of my favorite songs from the album and the video is unforgettable with his climatic shirt tearing at the end. This is a simple yet complex look but I will make it look as close as possible for you guys and girls out there.

If you can rock with Ms. Dirty Diana like Michael did, then this look is for you.

All you need is:
White V-neck t-shirt
White button up shirt with sleeves rolled up mid-way
Black long hand gloves with silver buckles
Belts (as many metal, leather, and chains)
Black Buckle up boots
Black tights

Loves how he does it!

About to tear that shirt off!
