$10M Michael Jackson “Love Glove” & $7M “Mirage Hat” For Sale

In a follow-up to the highly successful, exclusive interview with Jack Armstrong, I had the honor to talk with him again. This time about developing two iconic pieces of art as a tribute to the “King of Pop.”

This time our discussion is about the upcoming documentary film “Mirroring Michael Jackson.” As a tribute, the world’s most expensive glove has been created in honor of the 10th anniversary of the “King Of Pop” Michael Jackson’s passing.

Cosmic Artist Jack Armstrong created the “Cosmic X Love Glove” over a 3 month period. It will be featured in the upcoming MJ documentary film titled “Mirroring Michael Jackson.”

Back in 1983, Michael Jackson was #1 on Billboard’s top album and singles charts for a staggering six weeks in a row. With this milestone, it made Michael the first artist in music history to reach the peak of the four pop and R&B charts at the same time. What an incredible accomplishment!

The Mirroring Michael Jackson film’s producer is Kira Madallo Sesay. She asked Jack Armstrong if he could create a new, cosmic art love glove that MJ could have worn on tour, if he were back on earth magically performing one final show.  When asked about the “Cosmic X Love Gove”, Kira was quoted, “The Golden MJ Glove is iconic cosmic art that will be known forever and uniquely signifies Michael Jackson’s reign as the King Of Pop, alongside his golden vision of peace & love for the world.”

Jack replied, “Given his penchant for sequins, golden pants, jackets & accessories …. I created a multi-layered Cosmic X Love Glove, that includes multi-colored Cosmic ‘X’ painted surfaces. They almost look as if MJ is making a fist in the air to show he is still with us & leading us to be better caretakers of the planet, share love & hope with the world. And of course, inspiring all the brilliant new entertainers that will follow his legendary ‘moonwalk’ into showbiz.”

Armstrong continues, “Michael always said it wasn’t about how famous you become, but how much you do for the people in your community & in the world. MJ gave more money than any other entertainer in history to charities & helped thousands around the world.  He provided generous donations while visiting sick children in hospitals everywhere he traveled. All the while, Michael was inspiring millions with his music & new vision for the world.”

In the past, we are proud to have covered modern artist Jack Armstrong in several previous articles. He’s the leader of the Cosmic Extensionalism art movement. In addition, Jack holds the world record for creating the world’s most expensive bike, boots (Cosmic Cowboy Boots) and motorcycle (Cosmic Harley).

Jack also created the “Golden Cosmic Mirage Hat,” to compliment the MJ “Cosmic X Love Glove.” Both one-of-a-kind, the ‘Love Glove’ is now available for $10M and the ‘Cosmic Mirage Hat’ is $7M.  These two pieces of art will never be duplicated. Due to this fact, their rarity will generate much interest in both the art and entertainment industry.

It’s apparent that both Michael Jackson pieces include gold. How much is still a mystery. Armstrong will not discuss the amount of actual gold used in the creation of his MJ Mirage Hat & Love Glove art objects. Jack did say, “they are virtually priceless.”

Jack said, “MJ could wear both in concert if he were here, as he was my friend since 1979, when we met thru Andy Warhol.”

He continues, “I gave Michael abstract painting lessons in NYC & I believe if he had lived longer, he would have personally created more charities to help women & children. In addition, he also would have politically campaigned to help change the prison & judicial system in America, for people wrongfully arrested & imprisoned for crimes they did not commit. These subjects were all very close to his heart & he spoke about change often.”

Jack has written several books and includes countless quotes that will help to create a new universal paradigm in Cosmic X. It’s an honor to share some of these exclusive quotes with our readers.

“The enlightened King understands there is no difference, between themselves & the most humble servant.”

The mind that sees the future discovers the universe is a reflection of oneself.”

“A great painting reveals the soul of the artist & without great soul what great thing can exist.”

“If there is no magic in the artist, how can there be magic in the art.”

“The artist with the heart of a child & force of the universe in their eyes paints the truth.”

“The sublime individualist lives, in the secret universe we all desire.”

“Love generated in the human heart, is the most powerful thought in the universe.”

“See each of our many lifetimes & appearances start to unravel and your minds eye will reconnect with the universe of your soul, & in the transparency found, you will become the truth you seek.”


In closing, Jack states, “MJ was truly the Man in the Mirror, and my cosmic friend. There will never be another Michael Jackson. So in tribute, I will exhibit the Cosmic Love Glove, & Cosmic Mirage Hat, in this tribute film of MJ & hope everyone can be inspired by his love for the world, thru his music, dance, & powerfully cosmic life.”

“To exhibit the Cosmic X Love Glove exclusively In the MJ Tribute film, is a unique honor for me. 5 million dollars from its sale will be used to create a children’s art wing of the museum I am currently building, allowing children the opportunity to: create, curate, & to exhibit their own art. With funding for art supplies & offering 52 weekly art residencies, for up to 300 children a year.”
– Jack Armstrong

New Womens Fashion Line Launched by Adam Levine from Maroon 5

Adam Levine is the lead singer of the popular band Maroon 5 and continues to expand is empire by launching a new womenswear fashion line for retailer Kmart.

A menswear collection launched last fall by Adam Levine was successful for Kmart, so the sexy celebrity wanted to try and bring to market a women’s collection. The new fashion line for women includes a stylish collection of both dresses and separates.

When questioned about his level of expertise in womens fashion, Levine replied, “I don’t know how to read music, but I can still play. So I don’t really give a (expletive) about formal training or going to school. Levine continues, “You don’t have to be trained in everything to be good at it.”

Adam Levine is a busy guy these days. Of course, he’s still the frontman of the musical group Maroon five plus Adam is popular in his role as coach on NBC’s smash hit show “The Voice.”

Whether Adam has formal design training or not, he feel that is not important. He was quoted, “I kind of know what I like for both men and women. I think that it’s a little more difficult and challenging when you’re not, it’s not something you can conceptualize, or it’s not something you can conceive of wearing,” he said of designing for the opposite sex. “So I needed to get a little bit of help.”

The new womens fashion clothing line collection by Adam Levine will retail for $30 or less. The goal is for the new clothing line to feature colorful, casual printed T-shirts, patterned maxi dresses, mini crop tops, plus both twill and jean shorts.

Of course getting a little help from his stunningly beautiful fiancee doesn’t hurt either. Behati Prinsloo is a Victoria’s Secret model and helped Adam draw creative inspiration by allowing him to look through her clothing closet for ideas.

Adam Levine is taking this next endeavour very serious and said, “I didn’t want it to just be something that I phoned in. So I was really involved in the process.”

At age 34, Adam Levine drives many women crazy with his looks and vocals and late last year was awarded PEOPLE magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive for 2013.

AskMen’s Top 99 Most Desirable Women of 2014 – Who Made the List?

AskMen is proud to be the world’s No. 1 lifestyle Internet site for men and recently announced their popular “AskMen’s Top 99 Most Desirable Women of 2014.”

More than one million votes came in from around the world and the winner of the World’s Most Desirable Woman was …. Emilia Clarke from HBO’s “Game of Thrones.” (above photo from AskMen)

This year marks the 13th edition of the Top 99 Most Desirable Women reader poll by AskMen. Readers were asked to vote for women who most closely match their ideals and to consider additional criteria including talent, character and potential for 2014. The goal was to not just make it a vote solely on sex appeal.

Below is the list of the Top 10 Women:
1) Emilia Clarke
2) Alison Brie
3) Emily Ratajkowski
4) Jennifer Lawrence
5) Emma Watson
6) Kate Upton
7) Kerry Washington
8) Amy Adams
9) Margot Robbie
10) Kate Moss

For 2013, Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence was voted No. 1 but slipped to No. 4 this year. Alison Brie is from the “Community” TV series and music video model Emily Ratajkowski starred in last year’s hit song “Blurred Lines.” The beautiful Emma Watson from the blockbuster “Harry Potter” movie series was voted No.5.

James Bassil is the publisher of AskMen and was quoted, “The final Top 99 list is the product of both reader and staff votes, but if it were up to the staff alone I don’t think we’d be seeing Miley Cyrus on it. AskMen reader votes secured her a spot, but we remain skeptical about some of her recent behavior. We’ll see what 2014 brings. But at the moment, No. 99 seems to be the right spot for her.”

Women from TV shows were very popular again this year. In addition to Emilia Clarke, the popular HBO show “Game of Thrones” also landed two other actresses on the Top 99 list – Oona Chaplin at No. 43 and Rose Leslie at No. 61. Kat Dennings from “2 Broke Girls” came in at No. 12, Zooey Deschanel of “New Girl” was No. 17 and the sexy Sofia Vergara from the hit ABC show “Modern Family” appeared at No. 40.

There some surprises as several women you rankled high last year, slipped after the 2014 vote. Mila Kunis fell from No. 2 all the way down to No. 26. Rihanna dropped from No. 4 to No. 19 plus beautiful model Miranda Kerr declined to No. 46 after ranking No. 6 last year.

In addition, three women you were in last year’s Top 10, fell completely off the 2014 Top 99 List –
Kristen Stewart, Michelle Jenneke and Jessica Pare. Just proves that popularity can be just a fleeting

moment. Other women who did not make AskMen’s Top 99 Most Desirable Women of 2014 list were – Jennifer Lopez, Megan Fox, Blake Lively, Penelope Cruz, Gisele Bündchen and Jessica Alba.

Sexy Model Kate Upton Goes Weightlessness for Zero G

Kate Upton is both beautiful and extremely sexy. Since being named Sports Illustrated “Rookie of the Year” in 2011, Kate Upton has had both a wildly successful modeling and acting career.

The new SI Swimsuit edition is out, but just having Kate Upton shot on a sun drenched tropical beach wasn’t enough. Sports Illustrated featured Upton in a tiny bikini while floating in zero-g weightless. For those doubters, the the weightless experience was not simulated.

While floating in zero gravity during a parabolic flight on a custom airplane, 21-year-old model Kate Upton is shown literally suspended in air. Her innocence is evident as she defies gravity while only wearing a gold bikini.

sexy model Kate Upton

Sports Illustrated partnered Florida’s Zero-G Corporation who offers an amazing weightless experience. The plane – G-Force One – is a converted Boeing 727 and allows you to actually feel like an astronaut.

The modified Boeing 727 performs parabolic arcs to create a weightless environment and allows clients to float around, flip and soar just like being in space.

Practice makes perfect, as it’s been reported that curvy Kate Upton actually went up seventeen different times to complete the amazing photo shoot and video. They both definitely turned out beautifully. The filming actually took place last year at the Space Coast Regional Airport at Cape Canaveral in Florida.

M.J. Day is editor of the latest Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue and stated, “The ZERO-G experience was really exhilarating for everyone involved. We have been almost everywhere in the past 50 years with SI Swimsuit, but we have never done anything like this. It was certainly the most out-of-the-box shoot. Once again, Kate surprised us all with how she handled modeling in weightlessness.’

The mission of Zero Gravity Corporation is to make the excitement and adventure of space accessible to the public. The company offers the zero-g flights all year-round in cities across the U.S. – Austin, Cape Canaveral, Chicago, Houston, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco and Seattle.

Zero Gravity is the only company in the world that offers weightless flights for the general public at just a fraction of the cost of suborbital or orbital flights.

Kate Upton also did a photo shoot for Sports Illustrated that was recorded on video. Here it is ….

If you would like to enjoy the thrill of weightless, try the A ZERO-G Experience® which is available beginning at $4,950 per person. Please contact The Life of Luxury and we can assist you with your travel reservations.

Shania Twain

Shania Twain’s husband, Robert John “Mutt” Lange is not some recluse who never leaves his home. He travels the world with Shania. His work as a music producer takes him to the States and Europe.

Shania Twain is a popular Canadian country pop singer-songwriter. Shania’s hit 1995 album The Woman in Me brought her instant fame all across the world.

The 1997 album by Shania Twain titled “Come On Over” became the best-selling studio album of all time by a female. Quite an accomplishment.

“He on his own has never had this kind of success. And me on my own, I doubt very much I would have had this kind of success. First of all, would I even have found anyone who had so much faith in me? Part of why I think I flourished is because he believed so much in me. He loved my voice; he loved my songwriting. He was my biggest fan.“ says Shania Twain.

Her “The Woman In Me” album may be one of the most expensive country albums ever produced. When Mercury balked at the price Mutt agreed to pay a part of it out of his own pocket.

When asked when she feels most sexy, “I think it’s when i get out of the tub. your skin is fresh and you’ve stuck your hair up without even looking. that’s when you look your best.”

“I don’t want my body to be a distraction from my talent or my brain.”

Referring to Dolly Parton, “I was inspired by her, and inspired to be my own thing, she was so individual, so unique on her own, what I took from her was go out and be yourself, and be different, dare to be different.”
