Dear Gossips,

An edited version -- to account for television commercial breaks -- of Spike Lee’s Bad 25 was on last night, celebrating 25 years of Michael Jackson’s seminal album.

There are so many pouring in (mostly on Twitter!?!!!!???) but this one so far is my favourite. Because I love Stephen King. He writes beautifully, dispassionately, and almost always captures the right tone. In the new issue of Entertainment Weekly – a special edition dedicated to MJ – King, who is a regular columnist for the magazine (and his columns are the BEST), remembers Michael: Sixteen years ago, the King of Pop called the king of horror with an idea: What if they paired up to make the scariest music video ever? “One day during preproduction, I was in on a conference call about the choreography, and Michael fell asleep. Full Story
