Macaulay Culkin in Michael Jackson’s “Black or White”

Next Previous

As shocked as child star Macaulay Culkin was when he slapped aftershave on his face in the 1990 blockbuster Home Alone, the world was even more shocked to see him befriend King of Pop Michael Jackson shortly thereafter. In 1991, Culkin—along with Cheers star George Wendt—appeared in the music video for Jackson’s hit “Black or White.” Even supermodel Tyra Banks made a cameo at the 5:30 mark, bouncing up and down and mouthing the “Yeah, yeah, yeah” of the song’s chorus. But it was Culkin who took the spotlight at the 4:37 mark, when he took on L.T.B.’s rap portion of the song, complete with thick gold chains, a backward baseball cap, and a serious expression that was a far cry from his mischievous Kevin McAllister smile. With Jackson and a multiracial group of children surrounding him on a street stoop, Culkin lip-synced the lines: “See, it’s not about races / Just places / Faces / Where your blood comes from.”
