A picture has leaked of Michael Jackson with Vitiligo spots on his face skin before his alleged skin bleaching regimen. The picture proves that the stories about him suffering from the skin condition are actually true.
It has always been speculated as to why Michael Jackson “bleached” his skin. Some people attributed it to to his father making him hate himself. Others attributed it to Michael Jackson wanting to make himself look more European after the plastic surgery.
However, Michael Jackson himself always said it was due to his skin condition Vitiligo that he would change the color of his skin. What he was actually trying to do was make the rest of his skin match the color of his Vitiligo spots.
When people saw Michael Jackson with no signs of Vitiligo in public he was actually wearing a massive amount of makeup to cover up his skin condition.
Michael Jackson also claimed that his plastic surgery had nothing to do with the change of color. Rather he says after breaking his nose a doctor said that thinning his nose would help his music career, because it would allow him to sing at higher pitches.
For the people that say Michael Jackson change of himself out of insecurity, that’s partially true. However, it was insecurity born out of dealing with Vitiligo in time period where it would of hurt his music career. In this day and age he probably would of sold even more records had he let the world know about his ailment.
