What’s the Truth behind Michael Jackson’s skin going from dark to light? Did he want to be white?
Did Michael Jackson really take drugs or lots of pills? Was he on prescription medications? Was he really a drug addict?
Why did Michael Jackson have all of that plastic surgery? Did he hate himself? Was there something else behind it?
But wasn’t he just “weird?” Why did he carry that umbrella and wear the mask?
You’ve Seen All Of The Headlines: Now, What’s the Truth?
“Wacko Jacko hits a toy store in pyjamas, a surgeon’s mask, a wig and wheelchair”
“He bleached his skin white”
“He was taking hundreds of pills a day!”
“He was so eccentric. Everything he did, including carrying around an umbrella, was all part of the plan to get attention”
I’m going to stop right here….
Part of that “deception” we’ve been talking about, is all about making you think and feel a certain way about different people in the limelight…to make you view them as weird people that nobody can relate to. Different than you and I. To show them in an unfavorable light.
Nobody had that done to them more than Michael Jackson.
Let Me Ask You This…
Had you EVER CONSIDERED WHY?
Why Michael Jackson might have been in a wheelchair? Used an umbrella? Why he was taking medication? Why his skin changed? That there was a very good reason for all of these things?
Most didn’t. Most just assumed that what they saw and heard on television and on the radio and read in the newspaper and magazines, was the truth.
Problem is….IT WASN’T!
Some reveled in poking fun and talking at length about how “weird and bizarre” Michael Jackson was…it was like a daily dose of entertainment for them…fun at the expense of someone else. Someone they didn’t know or really know anything about.
If you don’t already, it’s time you knew the truth about Michael Jackson, what he suffered and why what you saw, will make sense after you know the FACTS
What If I Told You…
…that there is a legitimate explanation for all of these things, that Michael Jackson went through legitimate physical suffering and illness and that he was indeed telling the TRUTH…. and that what you thought was innocent fun, was really another human’s suffering…both caused by your own selfishness at laughing at him for your own entertainment, and also very real physical suffering Michael Jackson endured, and a myriad of treatments brought on by these ailments…ailments that the press did NOT want you to know about…because by making you think that what you saw, what they showed you, was because Michael was SO WEIRD…they would keep making money…off of YOU!
Understanding, and knowing the TRUTH….makes ALL of the DIFFERENCE!
For instance, DID YOU KNOW…that…
- Michael did indeed suffer from a disease called Lupus, which is an auto-immune disease, and also a disease/skin condition, called Vitiligo, which destroys the pigment of your skin?
”Michael Jackson treated everybody equally both in race, color and creed. It was especially annoying for me as a doctor to be treating him for the medical condition, vitiligo , which the media used against him. They might as well have said that Franklin Delano Roosevelt was lazy because he spent most of his adult life in a wheelchair.”
(Patrick Treacy Los Angeles Jan 2011 on receiving a Tribute Dot in Michael Jackson’s heart).
KING: What is vitiligo?
KLEIN: It’s a loss of pigment cells. And the pigment cells, you — for every 36 normal cells in your body, you have one pigment cell pumping pigment into them. Unfortunately, it’s an autoimmune disease and lupus is an autoimmune disease. And they tend to go together, because you make antibodies against your pigment cells.
KING: Did Michael have it?
KLEIN: Absolutely. We biopsied it.
KING: What causes it?
KLEIN: It causes — it’s caused by your immune system and your immune system destroying your pigment cells.
KING: Do black people have it more than white people?
KLEIN: No. But it’s just more visible on black people, because they have a dark skin. The other thing is, it certainly occurs with a family history. And I believe one of Michael’s relatives did, in fact, have vitiligo.
KING: How bad was his?
KLEIN: Oh, his was bad because he began to get a totally speckled look over his body. And he could…
KING: All over his body?
KLEIN: All over his body, but on his face significantly; on his hands, which were very difficult to treat.
KING: So let’s clear up something. He was not someone desirous of being white?
KLEIN: No. Michael was black. He was very proud of his black heritage. He changed the world for black people. We now have a black president.
KING: So how do you treat vitiligo?
KLEIN: Well, I mean there’s certain treatments. You have one choice where you can use certain drugs called (INAUDIBLE) and ultraviolet light treatments to try to make the white spots turn dark or – his became so severe, that the easier way is to use certain creams that will make the dark spots turn light so you can even out the pigments totally.
KING: So your decision there was he would go light?
KLEIN: Well, yes, that’s ultimately what the decision had to be, because there was too much vitiligo to deal with and…
KING: Otherwise, he would have looked ridiculous?
KLEIN: Well, you can’t — he would have to wear heavy, heavy makeup on stage, which would be ridiculous. And he couldn’t really go out in public without looking terribly peculiar.
KING: Doctor, how did you first meet Michael?
DR. ARNIE KLEIN, MICHAEL JACKSON’S DERMATOLOGIST: I met Michael because someone had brought him into my office. And they walked into the room with Michael. And I looked one — took one look at him and I said you have lupus erythematosus. Now, this was a long word.
KLEIN: Lupus, yes. I mean, because he had red — a butterfly rash and he also had severe crusting you could see on the anterior portion of his scalp. I mean I always am very visual. I’m a person who would look at the lips of Mona Lisa and not see her smile. I would see the lips.
KING: Was he there because of that condition?
KLEIN: He was there only because a very close friend of his had told him to come see me about the problems he had with his skin. Because he was — he had severe acne, which many people…
KING: Oh, he did?
KLEIN: Yes, he did. And many people made fun of him. He used to remember trying to clean it off and he’d gone to these doctors that really hurt him very much. And he was exquisitely sensitive to pain.
So he walked into my office. He had several things wrong with his skin. So I said — and you have thick crusting of your scalp and you have some hair loss.
He says, well, how do you know this?
I said, because it’s the natural course of lupus.
So I then did a biopsy. I diagnosed lupus. And then our relationship went from there.
And also this….Did you know that much of what you saw, including some of the plastic surgery, was due to these conditions?
DR. STRICK: Michael had a disease vitiligo in which the pigment is lost and attempts had been made to bring that pigment back which had been unsuccessful so he tried to bleach it out so it would be one colour. Lupus is also an autoimmune disease and he also had skin involvement, which had destroyed part of the skin of his nose and his nasal surgeries and all were really reconstructive, to try and look normal.
QUESTION: So all these nose reconstructions you’re saying was as a result of him treating his lupus?
DR. STRICK: The first one was to try and reconstruct from some scar tissue and obstruction that had happened with the skin there. It didn’t work out very well and all subsequent attempts were to make it right. I think he was trying to look like a normal guy as best as that he could.”
- Did you know that vitiligo has emotional consequences for many of it’s victims?
Vitiligo is an important skin disease having major impact on quality of life of patients, many of whom feel distressed and stigmatized by their condition. Society greets vitiligo patients in much the same way as it does any one else who appears to be different. They are stared at or subjected to whispered comments, antagonism, insult or isolation. The chronic nature of disease, long term treatment, lack of uniform effective therapy and unpredictable course of disease is usually very demoralizing for patients suffering from vitiligo. It is important to recognize and deal with psychological components of this disease to improve their quality of life and to obtain a better treatment response.
- Did you know that after Michael Jackson suffered a scalp burn during the filming of a Pepsi commercial, that he was in intense pain from the burn and also from treatments that were being used to help treat the burn and scar, which included balloon implants under the skin to stretch the skin enough so that the scar tissue could be cut out, which caused excruciating pain? That this is why he developed an addiction to painkillers, which, he kicked?
- That the hair loss he suffered was due to both the lupus, the vitiligo and the scalp burn as well?
- Did you realize that people with lupus are told to stay out of the sun, that their skin is extra sensitive to it? They have an actual “intolerance” to the sun.
- Did you also know that this is also a must for someone with vitiligo (staying out of the sun) because with loss of the melanocytes (cells that give your skin pigment), you have no natural protection against skin cancer?) THIS is why Michael Jackson carried an umbrella wherever he went!
- Did you know that Michael Jackson’s autopsy showed that there were NO NARCOTICS in his system and no organ damage that would have been evident in someone having abused drugs and/or alcohol for a long period of time? The ONLY medications found on Michael were the meds that Dr. Murray gave him that night, and the resuscitative drugs used!
- Did you know that though Michael was originally diagnosed with Discoid Lupus, which mainly affects the skin, and that at times, Discoid Lupus can progress to Systemic Lupus, which affects the body? Some feel that he had developed Systemic Lupus. You will read more about that in the article I have linked below.
- Did you know that Michael suffered from a condition known as “Dancer’s Feet” which makes the feet very painful and that he also was diagnosed with arthritis of the lumbar spine (very painful for a dancer and performer) and that either of those conditions, along with a possible lupus flare-up, could have been reasons you saw him in a wheelchair?
- Outside of these medical reasons for wheelchair, wrapped feet at times, masks and umbrellas, etc., can you also imagine what this man must have gone through, just how MUCH he was subjected to in his lifetime…dealing with 2 auto-immune diseases for certain all the while being a global celebrity who never got his privacy, had false allegations come at him, all the while being lied about continually by the press?
“Like the old Indian proverb says, do not judge a man until you have walked two moons in his moccasins. Most people don’t know me , that is why they write such things in which most is not true. I cry very,very often because it hurts and I worry about the children. All my children all over the world. i live for them. If a man could say nothing against a character what he can prove, his story could not be written. Animals strike not from malice, but because they want to live, it is the same with those who want to criticise, they desire our blood, not our pain. But still i must achieve . I must seek Truth in all things. I must endure for the power I was sent forth , for the world, for the children. But have mercy , for I’ve been bleeding a long time now. M.J. “

Here, straight from the Vindicate MJ blog…something that hits right to the heart of the matter:
Will it be a decent question to ask now how many plastic surgeries Michael underwent after we learned about a double operation on his broken nose, scars from a burn on his scalp, texture expanders under his skin, cutting out balding spots in his hair, treating a butterfly rash on his face and taking away the thick crust from his head?
Will it be still okay to make fun of his nose now that we know that lupus could have resulted in a necrosis of his skin and probably cartilage which is probably why he often appeared in public with a tape on his nose?
Should we still doubt that by the year 2003 when Michael was interviewed by Bashir the most number of his cosmetic surgeries had been two or probably three – while the rest of them were devoted to minimising the damage done by the accident, lupus and the very limited number of plastic operations proper he really had?
