Needle Time: Thomas Dolby
The 80s legend behind Hyperactive! and She Blinded Me With Science spoke of how he was drawn to music, away from his family of professors, how he was asked to collaborate with Michael Jackson (but Jacko only liked the "drums" on Hyperactive!) and was part of David Bowie's backing band at Live Aid, a fraught experience but unforgettable. After his career wound down in the 90s, he turned to computers and helped create a program which Nokia used for its ringtones on mobile phones. Dolby now spends time as a professor at a university in Baltimore, and he's recently written his book.

The BET Life of Janet Jackson
From her early successful days with the Rhythm Nation and Control LPs, into a protracted decline. She denied the 2004 Superbowl "wardrobe malfunction" was a planned stunt, but claimed to regret that it happened. She likes strawberries, and led tributes when her brother Michael died. She got a career tribute in 2015 that focussed on her routines as a dancer, perhaps because her songs ain't all that, really. She started her own label, too.

A new documentary, Leaving Neverland, is coming to the Sundance festival later this month, but his family aren't best pleased:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-46821969
The synopsis for the documentary reads: "Through gut-wrenching interviews with the now-adult men and their families, Leaving Neverland crafts a portrait of sustained exploitation and deception, documenting the power of celebrity that allowed a revered figure to infiltrate the lives of starstruck children and their parents."
The two-part film is directed by Dan Reed, who is also behind documentaries including The Valley, Terror in Mumbai and The Paedophile Hunter.
