Throwback Thursday


Kim's daughter Rose was only four months old when Kim was invited to do a photo spread for the May 26, 2000 issue of the UK's glossy OK! magazine. It wasn't just any photo shoot for Kim: it took place on the grounds of Capel Manor. In the article, Kim commented: 'Coming here changed my life. For a while before I came I was thinking of getting out of the music business and was searching for something which would replace my passion for music. I found what I was looking for in this very special place.'

The beautiful photographs were accompanied by a quite lengthy interview, which was rare enough at the time. Although Kim had found a new career in gardening, she addmitted to feeling a bit nostalgic for her former image: 'I've kept a lot of the stage clothes I wore during my career - I keep the clothes I wore on the Michael Jackson tour in our loft, along with my Kids in America outfits. I've got all my stage jewellery tucked away too and one day Rose is going to have a lot of fun dressing up in it all.'
