Downfall of the „King of Pop“A. Rumours:  5. Downfall of the „King of Pop' A. Rumours MJ ashamed of his black skin?? Actually in 1994, MJ was diagnosed by dermatolgist Dr.Arnold Klein with vitiligo → Actually MJ’s grandfather also had suffered from vitiligo, a skin disorder Why is MJ having an umbrella and always wearing long-sleeved shirts in public? → his dermatologist told him to avoid any exposure to the sun 5. Downfall of the „King of Pop“ A. Rumours:  5. Downfall of the „King of Pop' A. Rumours MJ obsessed with plastic operations?? → he claims to have had three operations: a) in 1979 to repair a broken nose resulting from a dancing accident in the same year b) the second one in 1982 to correct imperfections of the first surgery c) the surgical creation of a cleft in his chin he justified these operations by stating 'to help me breathe better and to hit higher notes' but MJ also did his nose operations, on account of feeling 'ugly' with it, and being made fun of by his family for having such a big nose 5. Downfall of the „King of Pop“ A. Rumours:  5. Downfall of the „King of Pop' A. Rumours Why is MJ always surrounded by children?? → he states that he always loved and appreciated children’s innocence, which in his opinion he lost too soon Let us therefore look at his lyrics from his song 'Childhood': 'It’s been my fate to compensate for the childhood I’ve never known' Now let us take a short look at the most-watched television interview of all times in 1993, where MJ talks to Oprah Winfrey about every single rumor about him 5. Downfall of the „King of Pop“B. Child abuse case:  5. Downfall of the „King of Pop' B. Child abuse case turning point in 1993 suddenly had to cancel his 'Dangerous World Tour', when allegations of child molestation had appeared against MJ in 1993 13-year-old Jordan Chandler pressed charges against MJ and accused him of sexually molestating him Michael avoided having to go to court by paying 23 million US-Dollar to the accuser this was heavily criticized and people wanted to use that as a proof for Michael’s guilt 5. Downfall of the „King of Pop“ B. Child abuse case:  5. Downfall of the „King of Pop' B. Child abuse case but in November 2005 Jackson’s lawyer T. Mesereau reports to Harvard Law School students: the defence would have had a witness that would have confirmed that Jordan Chandler told him that he actually was not molestated and that he was extremely angry with his parents, on account of them forcing him to press charges against MJ a proof: Chandler put an end to his relationship with his parents and stopped talking to them for eleven years 5. Downfall of the „King of Pop“ B. Child abuse case:  5. Downfall of the „King of Pop' B. Child abuse case in 2005 MJ was again facing allegations of child molestation by Gavin Arviso but on June 13, 2005 MJ was cleared of being inoccent of all ten charges made against him after the trial CNN reported that two jurors thought that MJ abused children sexually in the past, but this time there was not enough evidence to prove it 6. Conclusion:  6. Conclusion He used his influence like no other artist to help the poor and showed his enormous generosity through various donations MJ managed to break down the barriers of racism and revolutionized pop music in a very unique way Nevertheless it is hard to judge over his personal life because it is and always will remain mysterious The „King of Pop' is one of a kind and his fame is not comparable to any other artist in terms of extreme obsessity and adorance of an artist whether caused by himself or by the brutal and immoral media coverage → you should always keep this in mind when you judge any of his seemingly „obscure' and „megalomaniac' actions and behaviour Conclusion:  Conclusion Ask yourself if it is more important for all of you to take a closer look at only his private life e.g. playing with his chimp „Bubbles' and the various number of surgeries he has undergone or to HONOUR and CHERISH his achievements which everyone of us knows or at least has heard of… 7. Facts and curious stuff:  7. Facts and curious stuff In 1992, Michael was crowned 'King Sani' in a West African village in Gabon, Ivory Coast He has won 13 Grammy Awards To help keep his voice clear, Michael would normally put 2 Ricola drops in a cup of hot water and drink this 1984: Michael received two stars on Hollywood's Walk of Fame the 'Official Michael Jackson 1985 Calendar' was a huge seller but did not contain an acknowledgment of any holidays, because Jehovah's Witnesses, Jackson's religion at the time, do not celebrate holidays When touring, Michael loses about 10 pounds of water weight during his performances Jackson told an interviewer his famous moonwalk performance was a last-minute production and that he learned his trademark move from three street kids Bibliography:  Bibliography „Michael Jackson' URL: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Jackson#Personal_life (visited on Jan 15, 2006) „Michael Jackson Homepage' URL: http://www.mjackson.de/mjfakten/index.htm (visited on Dez 21, 2005) URL: http://www.allmichaeljackson.com URL: http://www.eonline.com/On/Holly/Shows/Jackson/Facts/index.html URL: http://www.mjfanclub.net/history/key_facts_2.html URL: http://www.michaeljackson.com (all visited on Jan 15, 2005)
