In today’s world, we have unprecedented access to the lives of our favorite celebrities. Social media and the evolution of the digital world has created a culture that expects to know what their favorite stars are eating for lunch, who they are going out with on the weekends, what their children and families are up to, and so much more. Here’s a look back at some of the more rare, candid moments in Hollywood history.

Singers Cher and Gene Simmons are photographed sharing a snack in the late 70’s. Rumor has it that during that time Cher and Simmons dated for a while.  If we could turn back time maybe we could have captured them sharing a KISS.

 

 

 

 

Michael Jackson and Paul McCartney, 1983

 

 

This amazing photo of two of the worlds most beloved cultural icons is a candid instant classic. Michael Jackson and Paul McCartney are captured doing the dishes. During the time the picture was taken they were collaborating on a song together. Chances are that they were hanging out, recording music and made some food. In 1985, Michael Jackson paid $47.5 million dollars to own the copyrights to the Beatles’ music. By owning the copyrights, Michael earned royalties each time a Beatles song was played on the radio or sold in stores. Ironically, he even outbid Paul McCartney himself, as well as John Lennon’s widow, Yoko Ono.
