Michael Jackson

  1. 2. <ul><li>For other persons named Michael Jackson, see Michael Jackson (disambiguation) </li></ul><ul><li>Michael Joseph Jackson (August 29, 1958 – June 25, 2009), dubbed the &quot; King of Pop &quot;, was an American musician and one of the most commercially successful entertainers of all time. His unique contributions to music and dance, along with a highly publicized personal life, made him a prominent figure in popular culture for four decades. </li></ul><ul><li>He started a solo career in 1971, having made his debut in 1964 as a member of The Jackson 5 . His 1982 album Thriller remains the best-selling album of all time, with four others — Off the Wall (1979), Bad (1987), Dangerous (1991), and HIStory (1995) — among the best selling. He popularized several physically complicated dance moves, such as the robot and the moonwalk . He is widely credited with having transformed the music video from a promotional tool into an art form, with videos for his songs &quot; Billie Jean &quot;, &quot; Beat It &quot; and &quot; Thriller &quot; making him the first African American artist to amass a strong crossover following on MTV </li></ul>
  2. 3. <ul><li>Twice inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame , his other achievements feature multiple Guinness World Records — including the &quot;Most Successful Entertainer of All Time&quot; — 13 Grammy Awards , 17 number one singles (including the four number ones with Jackson 5), and estimated sales of over 750 million records world-wide. He was also a notable philanthropist and humanitarian who donated and raised million of dollars through his own Heal the World Foundation , and support of 39 other charities. </li></ul><ul><li>Jackson's personal life generated significant controversy. His changing appearance was noticed from the early 1980s, with changes to the shape of his nose and to the color of his skin drawing media publicity. He was accused in 1993 of child sexual abuse , although no charges were brought. He married twice, first in 1994 and again in 1996, and brought up three children, one born to a surrogate mother . In 2005, he was tried and acquitted of child molestation allegations. While preparing for the This Is It concert tour in 2009, Jackson died at the age of 50 in Los Angeles, California , after suffering from cardiac arrest . His memorial service was broadcast live around the world . </li></ul>
  3. 4. Appearance, tabloids, Bad , autobiography, and films <ul><li>Jackson's skin had been a medium-brown color for the entire duration of his youth, but starting in the mid 1980s, it gradually grew paler. The change gained widespread media coverage, including rumors that he was bleaching his skin. According to J. Randy Taraborrelli 's biography, in 1986, Jackson was diagnosed with vitiligo and lupus ; the vitiligo partially lightened his skin, and the lupus was in remission ; both illnesses made him sensitive to sunlight. The treatments he used for his condition further lightened his skin tone, and, with the application of pancake makeup to even out blotches, he could appear very pale. The structure of his face changed too: several surgeons speculated that he had undergone multiple nasal surgeries, a forehead lift, thinned lips, and cheekbone surgery. </li></ul>
  4. 5. <ul><li>He lost weight in the early 1980s because of a change in diet and a desire for &quot;a dancer's body&quot;. Witnesses reported that he was often dizzy and speculated that he was suffering from anorexia nervosa ; periods of weight loss would become a recurring problem later in life. Some medical professionals have said he was suffering from body dysmorphic disorder , a psychological condition whereby the sufferer dislikes his appearance and has no concept of how he is viewed by others. He had a fourth rhinoplasty in 1986, and had a cleft put in his chin. However in the documentary Living with Michael Jackson he stated in an interview that only had two rhinoplasties and no other facial modifications </li></ul>
