Louis Vuitton Will No Longer Make Any Merchandise That Features Michael Jackson
The Collection Does Not Focus On His Private Life
Meanwhile Abloh added he was focused on the iconic style of Michael Jackson and not the ins and outs of his private life. “My intention for this show was to refer to Michael Jackson as a pop culture artist. It referred only to his public life that we all know and to his legacy that has influenced a whole generation of artists and designers.”
Despite Abloh’s statement, Louis Vuitton has now said it will no longer make any merchandise “that directly features Michael Jackson elements.” It also guaranteed that the items that will be sold in stores will “purely reflect the true values of the brand and of our artistic director.”
It’s Not Her Role
Paris Jackson, the 20-year-old daughter of Michael Jackson, is steering clear of the controversy surrounding Leaving Neverland.
“there’s nothing i can say that hasn’t already been said in regards to defense,” Jackson tweeted Thursday, in response to a fan who pointed out that she hasn’t said much about the documentary.
Jackson added that her cousin, Taj, “is doing a perfect job on his own. and i support him. but that’s not my role.”
She continued: “i’m just tryna get everyone to chill out and go with the flow, be mellow and think about the bigger picture. that’s me.”
