With the September issue Vanity Fair gives tribute to two modern day legends lost in the same day, Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcett. Jackson cover includes a photo of the superstar by Annie Leibovitz, with an interview retrospective by contributing editor Lisa Robinson.
In her article “The Boy Who Would Be King,” one of two cover stories in the September 2009 issue, Robinson recounts numerous interviews with Jackson, beginning with their first meeting at his family’s home in Encino, California, in 1972, when Michael was 14.
Farrah‘s cover was photograped by Bruce McBroom taken in 1976 on the same day she was photographed in her famous red bathing suit.
Subscribers are already randomly receiving the covers, while others can pick up a copy of the September 2009 issue of Vanity Fair, available on newsstands in New York and Los Angeles on August 5 and nationwide on August 11.

It was a grand and moving sendoff for Farrah Fawcett, who died after her long battle with cancer last week. Hollywood stars, and Farrah‘s family gathered in a Los Angeles cathedral on Tuesday to pay tribute to Charlie Angel‘s actress Farrah Fawcett, who died of cancer last week.
Ryan O’Neal, 68, was seen weeping as he lifted Farrah‘s dark brown casket covered in orange and yellow flowers while surrounded by police. The star-studded service came just five days after the 62-year-old lost her long battle against cancer.
Redmond O’Neal, 24, was given special permission to leave jail – where he has been serving time for drug charges – to attend the funeral in the presence of two police deputies and a sergeant.
Redmond, who was allowed to visit his mother at her bedside before she died, read Lamentations 3: 17 – 26 from the Bible, while his father read Wisdom 3: 1- 9.
Representing Farrah‘s most popular TV show Charlie’s Angels was her former co-star Kate Jackson, who looked sombre in a black dress and sunglasses as she entered the cathedral. Farrah‘s ex-husband, Lee Majors, Ernie Hudson, romance novelist Jackie Collins and sister Joan Collins also attended.
Rest in peace Farrah.
