Michael Jackson. I was assigned to do a cover shoot with Michael for life Magazine at Disney World in Orlando. The Epcot Center was coded to the public so he could have privacy. The Disney people treated Michael as if he was Mickey Mouse reincarnated. I set up the lights and waited. His manage, Frank DiLeo told me Michael was out doing his door-to-door work as a Jehovah’s Witness. He was more than two hours late. How could Michael not think about all the people who’d traveled to Florida with their families for what might be their only vacation of the year and had to wait for the park to reopen? The moment he arrived he saw on my face how upset I was and said in his super-sweet voice. “Oh Lynn, you are so beautiful.” He smiled. My anger melted. I was a goner, Michael had star power.
