More Michael Jackson Tributes: Four Special EW Covers, A Hardcover Book And More

ewmj.pngLast night, thousands of Michael Jackson fans gathered at New York’s legendary Apollo Theater to honor the pop stars life and work. But they aren’t the only ones paying tribute to Jackson almost a week after his sudden death; more magazines are getting into the mix.

peoplemj.pngEntertainment industry bible Entertainment Weekly is honoring Jackson with four separate covers featuring Jackson at home in 1972, on the set of the Thriller video, in a portrait taken in 1983 and performing in NYC on Sept. 10, 2001. People magazine also has Jackson on the cover of its latest issue — a special double issue. If you flip the issue over, the back cover also features Jackson and opens to a 27-page tribute section. The magazine is putting out two versions of the back cover and has increased its print run to meet anticipated demand for the special issue.

People magazine’s editors are also producing a hardcover tribute book about Jackson and his life, due out July 10. You can preorder on Amazon.com now, though.
