The Art and Style of Katrina
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Eight years ago, during the unforgettable summer of 2005, Hurricane Katrina ravished through the Gulf Coast. We, along with many other New Orleans residents, were forced to relocate to nearby Houston, Texas. After Katrina we saw many new businesses in New Orleans face inevitable failure. During the two years that we spent in Houston, we came together to develop a lifestyle brand that reflected the cultural influences of New Orleans and our love of high end fashion and couture. What we produced was a rare and eclectic collection we call "Jerk and Jon." We returned to New Orleans in 2007 with "Jerk and Jon," a business plan and even more tenacity. Our unique design style and custom made pieces began to create a buzz through the music, sports and entertainment industry. We had the fortune of working with the likes of Jackie Jackson, Chad "Ochocinco" Johnson, Kerri Hilson and Elise Neal. However, we wanted to find a way to share our fashion experiences with the city of New Orle ...

Celebrities Honor Michael Jackson In Wake Of Daughter's Hospitalization
Huffington Post - over 3 years
LAS VEGAS — Once was not enough. Less than 20 months after the debut of the first Cirque du Soliel show paying tribute Michael Jackson comes the second: "Michael Jackson ONE" Cirque president Daniel Lamarre said he'd planned two Jackson-inspired shows "from the first day we got the rights from the (Jackson) estate," with the first production, "Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL WORLD TOUR," delivering a stadium-sized concert-type presentation and "ONE" a more intimate affair. The new show is something closer to what Cirque du Soliel usually serves up. It's a multimedia extravaganza that often flies high, but never loses sight of its inspiration. Saturday's world premiere attracted celebrities including musician Justin Bieber, as well as actors Neil Patrick Harris, Allison Janney and Alfre Woodard. Also in attendance were Michael Jackson's brothers Marlon, Tito and Jackie, the latter noting during arrivals that most of the Jackson family would be inside the thea ...

After Hologram Tupac, TLC to reunite with hologram Left Eye
Death and Tazxes - almost 5 years
Well this was bound to happen. Today marks the 10-year anniversary of Left Eye’s tragic untimely death in a car accident in Honduras. TMZ reports today that following the smash success of Hologram Tupac at this year’s Coachella Festival, T-Boz and Chili have announced plans to resurrect Left Eye for a hologram tour this summer. Five cities have been booked so far, and more are in the works. That’s right. We now live in a world in which the living and the dead go on tour together. Though Dr. Dre quickly smashed rumors that he and Snoop Dogg intended to take Tupac out on tour this summer, Jackie Jackson said last week that hologram Michael may very well accompany the other Jackson brothers on a Jackson 5 tour next year. (This year’s Unity Tour won’t include the hologram.) At worst the the hologram tour seems callously opportunistic: it’s hard to imagine something more cold-blooded that using your fallen comrade’s image to make a buck. At the same time, maybe there’s something cathart ...

Michael Jackson Hologram Going on Tour with Jackson 5?
Gossip On This - almost 5 years
At this year’s Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in California, late rapper Tupac was resurrected in the form of a hologram and it looks as though iconic pop legend Michael Jackson may take on the same form. According to reports, MJ may take to the stage and tour with his brothers as the Jackson 5. When speaking with British Newspaper The Sun, Jackie Jackson said, “It could have been Michael — absolutely. Wouldn’t that be wonderful? As a matter of fact, we had that idea two years ago for Michael’s Cirque du Soleil show.” A source explained that a hologram of MJ going on tour with the Jackson 5 could be “the most lucrative of all time,” however a lot of negotiating would have to take place before it happened. The source continued, “As always with Michael’s estate and creating new art with his image, there will be a lot of politics to navigate. But we’ve all seen how well it can be done now. It could be the most lucrative world tour of all time.” Meanwhile, the survivi ...

Hologram Michael Jackson to Go on Tour With Jackson Brothers?
Pop Crush - almost 5 years
Robyn Beck - Pool, Getty Images PopCrush readers, you may get your wish. The King of Pop is your overwhelming choice as the artist you’d most like to see ‘resurrected’ as a hologram. Now Jackie Jackson, inspired by the virtual appearance of Tupac Shakur at Coachella last weekend, tells E! Online that a hologram version of their brother Michael could join him and Jermaine, Tito and Marlon on next year’s tour to support the Jacksons’ new album. “It could have Michael — absolutely,” Jackie says. “Wouldn’t that be wonderful? As a matter of fact, we had that idea two years ago for Michael’s Cirque du Soleil show.” The Jackson Brothers are kicking off the Unity Tour 2012 in June — that’s probably too soon to integrate a Michael Jackson hologram into the show.
