(Style on a Dime) Shoppers gone wild

Did I ever tell you about my Aunt Lydia (not her real name)? She’s my favorite aunt and we spent a lot of time together when I was growing up. We developed a special bond and having no children of her own, I held (and still hold) an extra special place in her heart.

Michael Jackson's true legacy
