And the Oscar goes to… Judas and the Black Messiah

Apr 26 2021
In February this year, while we were in lockdown, I watched an exclusive preview screening of Warner Bros’ latest movie Judas and the Black Messiah and attended a special talents’ gathering online to discuss this production. I immediately knew that I was watching a movie that would make an impact on film history. Judas and the Black Messiah is an insightful film that feels relevant with what is happening in today’s history.

Apr 19 2021

When your name is Janet Jackson and your brother is Michael Jackson, your pandemic ‘de-cluttering’ exercise is not just therapeutic for you but also for the charities benefiting from the sales of the memorabilia as well as your spirit. My first trip to Central London after months of lockdown was to the Hard Rock Cafe’ Piccadilly Circus, which not only has some of my favourite steaks and onion rings in town, but also the best rock memorabilia and shop. I made it a day of it, and took the chance to see some pieces from Janet Jackson’s iconic wardrobe and treasures collected during her legendary career and life while a three-day auction extravaganza will take place on Janet’s birthday weekend Friday, 14th May, Saturday, 15th May and Sunday, 16th May 16th, 2021 live in Beverly Hills and online at juliensauctions.com.
