From the 1980s it was claimed and generally believed that Michael Jackson Vindication 2.0 bleached his skin white. In 1993, Michael Jackson claimed that he had a skin disease Vitiligo, which was confirmed by his dermatologist in an interview with Larry King in 2009. The doctor also said that he also suffered from lupus. Vitiligo is a skin disease that 10-20% of the world population suffers from. It makes the pigments in the skin spots disappear and the skin is a light color. Jackson said in an interview with Oprah Winfrey in 1993 that he got this disease just before the recording of Thriller, but covered up the light color with brown makeup. Over the years, the disease was worse, according to Jackson, and 85% of his body is said to have been covered with light skin. He said he painted the white rather than spending time trying to make up the brown.
In the book Moonwalk Michael admitted having nose surgery twice and made a little butt on his chin. But he denied that anything else that was written about his appearance. However, it is known that Jackson had at least 21 nose operations in the 1990s and 2000s. Facial structure of his face has been significantly changed, and plastic surgeons have assumed that Jackson has undergone a large number of plastic surgery.
Jackson and some of his siblings said they had been physically and emotionally abused by his father, and in 2003 his father admitted having beaten Michael Jackson as a child. Jackson rarely talked about his childhood, but when he did he was very influenced by the and said he threw up before he met his father. Mental health experts said that Jackson was mentally like a 33 old man and suffered from regression. Other doctors have said that Jackson had dysmorphophobia. Dr. Deepak Chopra, a friend of Jackson for twenty years, said: “That which evolved into his morbid preoccupation with cosmetic surgery was an expression of self-mutilation, a total lack of respect for themselves”.
Like other pioneers Jackson was a victim of the methods and technologies that were at an early stage of development, and many wondered whether his nose was about to fall off because of the extensive cosmetic surgery. Jackson’s dermatologist Arnold Klein stated that he had built up Jackson’s nose all over again after other doctors had scraped it away completely.
During the 1990s, Jackson was addicted to prescription drugs, mostly painkillers and strong sedatives and his health was deteriorating.
Other personal problems, such as pain in the back, legs, etc., and the great pressure on Jackson around accusations that were made against him in 1993, are also be the reason for the dependency on prescription drugs.
