And yet their Instagram shows them at hair salons and spas mid-day during the week, taking trips to Europe and generally showing off the fact that, yes, they do have the money but they are just flagrantly refusing to pay what they owe...

PRINTED WORDS / Iconic Issue #20

The latest issue of Iconic magazine is a big one; the biggest in the mag's HIStory, in fact.

The inside pages are equally great; lots of interviews with Jackson's collaborators, a book extract from the excellent Joe Vogel and general ruminations on this highly significant album. 

Oh, and I've written about other artists sampling Michael Jackson - which is interesting, obviously.

Whilst I love being a music journalist, I cannot wait to achieve my career goal of becoming Will Truman.
