Michael Jackson Skin Disease

 Today I want to show you a documentary on the truth behind why Michael Jackson has gone white. He couldn't have bleached his skin because eventually it would wear off. Worse, he would be a walking skeleton with muscles before he could sing "I'm Bad"! So what's behind all this getting lighter with each new album?

 He has Vitiligo. A disease which discolors blotches of your skin. Many folks either discolor the rest or wear make up to even out their complexion. Unfortunately, Michael Jackson had to do both. At the beginning, he wore make-up which gave him that famous dark mulatto cinnamon Thriller look. Without it, I doubt that Dance Pop horror flick would of had the success it enjoys now.

 As the much anticipated release of Bad hit the stores in 87, the condition only grew worse. This time medication was the only saving grace. Which worked to further even out his complexion. Sadly, this would mean he would appear light-skin mulatto for "Bad" and eventually totally white for Dangerous up to the present hour.

 Did you know that sparkling glove and bike wrenching wrist-vest was meant as a cover-up?  Now we can't forget about those three band-aids. The pinky, ring, and index bandages so famously worn on his right hand. All became famous trademarks of the King of Pop(guess it's the price of fame).

 He changed hair styles partly because of that famous(or should I say infamous) Pepsi commercial. But mainly to conform to his new album image. Yet after so many slanderous tabloid papers, Michael had to finally take it out of the closet.. So in 1993, he found the perfect medium to get the truth out there. Opera Winfrey.

Little Susie

Some believe this to be based on a true story. However, it's been more or less confirmed as a fictional tale. Partly Inspired by Gottfried Helnwein's artwork. Who is famous for his emotional imagery-Especially of children(in fact, Michael used his Lichtkind(Child of Light) painting to depict this song on The History Vol. 1 Booklet).

 In this tragic tale, Little Susie took her own life because of gross indifference to her well-being. One by one, her folks passed away. Father abandoned them, leaving mother and gram-father to wither in the grave.

 Years later, she was grafted into an unloving family. Though she was adopted, they did not take her in. Loneliness seeped it's cold dead fingers upon her tender heart. Until she couldn't bear it much longer. Although it was technically an accident. She subconsciously threw herself down the stairs to escape the pain.

 Although the story is clearly fictitious, Michael was proving a point. "Neglect can kill. Like a knife …

Invincible Session Outtakes

Here is an exhaustive list of all Invincible tracks that Either was sent to production hell or never quite made the list. According to Rodney Jerkins, there are a heck of a lot of finished outtakes from this session. Enough to fill multiple albums! So I lied. This is by no means an exhaustive list.:)

Fall Again Demo-I knew something spectacular was missing from his latest album! I Just couldn't quite lay my finger on it. I'm glad Michael took time away to be with his sick son. But this track fits in this session like a jigsaw piece. This beautiful Romantic Ballad was co-produced by Walter Afanasieff and Michael Jackson.

Beautiful Girl Demo-I can just see this on a soundtrack for a Romantic movie. Claiming top chart positions worldwide. But for unknown reasons, it was cut at the last moment.

 Michael Jackson and Tito both collaborated on an instrumental take which was also shelved.

The Way You Love Me-Sounds very much like something McCartney would do. With the elegant piano a…
