A Photographic History of
Michael Jackson's Face
With blithering, yet witty commentary
Hard to believe - this was Michael
Jackson. He was born August 28, 1958 - one of 9 kids. His father
reportedly nicknamed him "Big Nose".
explains a lot----editor ]
Mike was born a cute African-American
guy. "Normal", if you will, and very talented. Despite the
current, sad stories about his lonely, sad childhood, Mike grew up
surrounded by famous people and an adoring public. At age 5, Mike and
his brothers were the amazing 'Jackson 5'. They played locally, then in
New York and Philly. They were "discovered" by Gladys Knight and pianist
Billy Taylor at the famous Apollo Theater in Harlem. By age 11, Mike was
a Superstar. At age 13 he went solo and had his first #1 hit at 14 with
"Ben" (a touching love song to a rat). Who knew he'd get addicted to
plastic surgery, face accusations of child molestation and end up
America's Most Famous Sideshow?
Mike gets his nose slightly narrowed and his
eyebrows shaped. This was his "Thriller" Era and he was smokin'. People did
notice this facial change and commented on it - guys just didn't do this
Some in the Black community made comments about him having a problem with
looks and making his nose more "White". He was cute as hell, though. Oh,
baby. He gave coherent interviews. He had a cute sense of humor and was
seen on TV doing other things besides whining, faking tears and defending
legal charges. He didn't wear a face mask in public. He smiled a big,
infectious smile. He was humble and grateful for his fame and his fans'
appreciation. He made hit after hit, celebrated music videos one after
another, sealed obscenely huge record sales and contracts. He had
unprecedented $ponsorship deals with Pepsi, and LA Gear Sportwear. People
stood in line at 1AM to purchase "Thriller" when it came out, even though
the store didn't open until 9 AM.

softly in the background...
Another nose job to narrow things and
permanent eyeliner tattooed around his eyes. Ouch! Is that lipstick?! Hell,
it's the 80s - it's allowed. During that time he had an army of spin
doctors, lawyers, bodyguards, agents, minions, PR magicians, attendants, and
managers all making sure he no one had a clue about his personal life but
what did we care? He was doing amazing, selfless things - contributing to
children's charities and starting his own "Heal The World Foundation";
cowriting the famous "We Are The World" song to help African famine victims.
He was given the Heritage Award and praised by Queen Liz, President Reagan
and others. Mike was everywhere, giving as much as he got and letting us all
know how blessed he was. There was no one who wasn't impressed and didn't
sprain an ankle trying to imitate his "Moon Walk" in their living room.

OK, people and the press are really
talking now. Gasps are audibly heard. He gets his nose done again, and, in a
move that will forever baffle the world, neglects to sue the bastard who
botched the surgery job on him. He suddenly has cheek bones. In a mere year
and a half his skin's gone from beautiful cocoa bronze to fish belly white.
He first denies this, then blames it on the medical condition Vitiligo which
causes people of color to develop light patches of skin that lack pigment.
Well he doesn't say this, his "people" say this. Mike ain't saying a
thing which is odd considering the good he could do to bring this little
understood condition to public light. Rumors abound that he's been allegedly
taking female hormones (note the clever use of the word "allegedly" to avoid
a law suit) to remove facial hair and keep that voice of his at the 12 year
old boy pitch. He's talking in a Marilyn Monroe Little Girl Whisper. He's
started the Spin of the misunderstood, picked-upon Victim instead of an
increasingly weird 30 year old man. He's creepy. People are making jokes
that only in America can you be born a black man and end up a white woman.
Talented or no, the fact is we're realizing that Michael Has Issues.
In an insult to transvestite men
everywhere - who can look pretty damn good in a dress and makeup and can
project alluring female charm - when Mike does this, he doesn't even
have the decency to stop grabbing his crotch every 1.0045 seconds and
allowing that image for us. His skin is getting lighter still even
though it's supposedly already been lightened (or not...who do you
believe? Him or his PR people?). His public antics are presented weekly,
as are his new lip colors. He should pick a damn color and stick with it
already. Eyebrows were whittled down to Joan Crawford peaks. He now has
an interesting, manly cleft in his chin and a dropped, square jawline.
The joke was that he was really his sister LaToya - you notice
you never saw them in the same room together? He gets his nose done
again and now sports little teeny triangles for nostrils and a sharp
razor ridge you could grate cheese on. Popular opinion is he "fucked it
up". He defends himself in the press by asking why people make such a
Thang out of it... a lot of people get a little nose work done! and it's
not national news! Sheesh already! Can't you leave him alone?! He's got
a skin disease! (although having Vitilgo has nothing to do with having
nonstop plastic surgery). He had a bad childhood! He's a nice person! He
recycles his plastics! Even people in his 'camp' are publicly saying the
man's elevator isn't going to the top floor anymore.
He messed with it all again. Current
Color: toilet paper pink. Cheeks: Squirrel socking nuts away for the
winter. Reportedly the tip of his nose is so damaged from the operations
that the tissue has died, and he's now wearing a fake prothesis tip. (Ya
think? ). This unnecessary and seemingly nonstop alteration has passed
into the realm of "self-mutilation" and when the shocking news of child
molestation charges come to light, it's the last straw for his
sponsors Pepsi, LA Gear and others who cancel his contracts. The public,
who forgave his mounting eccentricities because of his incredible talents
nod in silence about it all, unsurprised. Most remark that someone with
this going on visibly outside has to have a lot of demons going on inside.
In his defense, Mike launches his second career as Whining, Weeping, Hurt,
Offended, Innocent Victim. Like being instantly on the verge of tears at
any legit question he wants to avoid is also "normal".
Ms. Judy Jetson
- The "Alcoholic Housewife"
... didn't catch on either. Even the
staunch defenders of Michael's sanity have to admit the boy's cheese has
slid off his cracker. Mike gets a fake chin implant and suddenly loses his
cleft chin, the sides of his face are stretched taut, his nose isn't
pointing North anymore and it's anyone's guess what the hell he did to his
skin this time. The Art of Cosmetology seems to be an unknown science in his
part of the world and he's getting his face done at the local morgue. He has
new lipstick (my shade Mike..cool!) and jokes abound that he's turned into
Diana Ross. He is a ghoul and seems to be a sick puppy with all this stuff
he's done to himself and his bizarre antics in public. Each photo that shows
up in the coming years never fails to make people's jaws drop. Mike gets
worked up saying he doesn't see why everyone but him can have a
little nip and tuck on the nose but let him go have a tiny bit and
BOY O BOY it's National News. ::fake sob!:: He doesn't think he looks that
different and wishes people would leave him alone. We wish he'd leave his
New chin again. Nose again. New cheeks.
Smaller jaw. The Bizarro angles gone. The gaunt look is replaced by
rounder fluff. This would all be amusing as Theater except this is how
he's walking around, every day, pretending this is all perfectly normal.
The weirdest thing is people act like it is. I mean, you never see photos
of Mike dragging the usual 3 or 4 little boys around with him, at some
awards show and see people in the background throwing up. Rumor has it he
transplanted some pubic hair to his jaw to try to make a Goatee in an
attempt to butch up , but the thought is too repulsive to dwell on.
Of course that's just Tabloid fodder.
Oh, this isn't looking good...a Goatee!
Suddenly his jaw is an inch longer. He got his eyes pulled so tight he
looks Oriental and they've ceased to line up properly. His lips have a
hint of that lizard-lock smile you see on people who have overdone the
facelifts. Good thing Japanese Anime cartoons are taking the US by storm
so this is kind of fashionable. Hey, if you plaster the make up on enough,
you can make anyone look good. A new fad are the "Glamor Shot" Stores,
where women plop down huge amounts of $$$ to have technicians
professionally do their make-up, hair. Photography experts professionally
light them and transform the package into a drop dead gorgeous, stunning
New You and take photograph evidence that it was actually managed.
Everyday women are transformed into sensual, perfect creatures. Because of
this It hits us that this is the trick Michael's been using in all those
perfect professional photos we see of him! You mean all those photos of
him are retouched?! Say it ain't so! When he's caught in public it's quite
a different matter. And ack! Is that pubic hair?
- What Ever Happened To Baby Mike?
My, my.. where does one start? Here is
Michael at the age of 42 with his wrecked face and apparently no makeup.
Gone the artistry of the airbrush, wizardry of make up artists and the kind,
magic lighting of studio crafted reality. You can see the rumored (please
note inventive use of word "rumored" to avoid a law suit...) fake-nose-tip-prothesis
hanging off as well as the scars. The thin little beak nose of 1997 seems to
have expanded once again. It's hard to see a human being in there, and it's
amazing there are plastic surgeons who can mutilate someone like this and
sleep at night. I wish I had $1 for every ranting "fan" who's accused me of
altering this photo or airbrushing/faking the photos on this page. I tell
them that's called "getting sued to oblivion" ", if it were true on my part.
All these photos are from fan or "official" web sites or major publications
and can be obtained by anyone willing to use a search engine for an hour or
two. Information on Mike's face, his sugeries, his bizarre personal and
public actions and the words of people who have stopped covering for him
fill ten of thousands of web sites.

a great, creepy movie
Big news brings Michael out of his Howard Hughes-like life and back into
the spotlight when he charges his record company, Sony, is "racist". That's
why his "Invinsible" CD sold 2 million copies; Sony didn't promote him
enough. He sez. We all get to gasp anew and ask the question - WTF?! Seems
he's had his nose fixed,,,WHEW! and just got out of bed. As it is reported
in the news it seems a bridge was built to widen the nasal passages. "Thank
God!" the headlines say. Poor thing probably couldn't breathe! with those
teensy bitty nostrils. Oh How Nice For Him! Perhaps his singing will
improve, since his last album was 70 minutes of hiccups, grunts, fake crying
and yips. One has to wonder why, with all his money, he can't seem to find
plastic surgeons who are capable of actually doing plastic surgery. The
"fixed" bridge appears as two lumpy lines and not what say, just for the
sake of argument, a plastic surgeon might put in someone's face to create a
nose bridge. Maybe this is a new trend in Breath-Rite Strip implants? One
wonders what those Jutting Gill Bumps were on the sides of his jaw in 1997.
Mike ruins his symmetry schtick with mismatched, lopsided eyes and lipstick
like my senile Aunt Margaret wears. Music critics and even those in the
record industry are saying OK, quite enough from this goof. There is even a
TV special in the UK asking - If this is what the guy is doing to his
outside, then what the hell is going on inside? What's happened to our
Mr. C.F.B. Lagoon
Orvez took this photo in the parking lot of the Beverly Regent Hotel in
Beverly Hills, California. She heard he was there so waited in hopes of
seeing him. What a surprize it must have been to see The Mike, making his
way to his limo dressed in only blue Jammies with snow flakes and polar
bears on them. Always a good look for a star, I say. She asked if she could
take his photo and he said sure...as long as she "stood well back".
I can't imagine why.
The publicly decried "third nostril",
which appeared after the January plastic surgery (see above photo) that a
few took time out of their busy days to write and inform me I was full of
shit about, seems to be closing up but has left an obvious scar. The tip,
which has been rumored (damn, I'm good) to have died and/or be a puttied-on
prothesis looks to be dead tissue and/or a puttied on prothesis. Said Ms.
Orvez: "He looked like a ghoul. When I had the picture developed, I was
sick. The guy doesn't appear to have a nose."
Well, when you hack away at it for 15 years, that happens.
But as my detractors write to me, I just put these
vicious "lies" up because I'm
"jealous". I am, boy howdy! I'm jealous I don't have whatever it is Mike's
on to make his pupils the size of dinner plates. And I would really
love some Polar bear and snowflake jammies myself. I wish Tracey mentioned
if they had Feets in them or not! It's hell trying to find "fun" jammie
feets pajamas when you're a grown up woman. How envious I am that a grown

The story is that Mike was in court because of a $21
million suit filed by his longtime promoter, Marcel Avram. He says Mike
didn't show up for 2 concerts New Years Eve 2000 and Mike says he thought
they'd been canceled so spent the night at home watching TV.
Jackson wore a surgical mask when entering and leaving the
courthouse (gee..wonder why?). His former publicist says he routinely wears
the mask "to protect his throat from pollution and germs". Like that reason
in itself is a perfectly normal one. You see anyone else walking around with
surgical masks on? Perhaps it's to hide the dead, rotting tip of his putty
nose. Just to throw out an idea here. What I think we have here is the New
I like the wig though. I wasn't aware that the historic
(3000 - 1200 BC) tradition of wearing dead marmots on your head had been
revived. Are those caterpillar eyebrows? A 1000-yard stare? What a trend
