The “King of Pop” Turns 50

Did you ever wonder what Michael Jackson would actually look like at age 50, if he never had plastic surgery?

Jacko will turn 50 on Friday, and according to, age progression experts in the U.K. came up with this image of what Michael should look like without the past 30 years of non-stop surgery. I can still remember Michael’s early television appearances on the Andy Williams Show, when he was still good looking.

Born on August 29, 1958, in Gary, Indiana, Michael made his professional debut in 1969 with his brothers as a member of The Jackson Five. He achieved unbelievable success on his own and became known as the “King of Pop.” He still holds the world record for best-selling recording of all time – Thriller. You know that one; it is often used by wedding choreographers for the new trend in wedding “First Dance” routines (a topic that I will address in another article where you turn into a zombie once the honeymoon is over).

Not too long ago, a good friend of mine had plastic surgery, it was not a pretty sight. For about six weeks, her face looked as if it was side-swiped by two parallel fast-moving trucks, much like Michael does AFTER the healing process. After all her pain and suffering, she landed a date with Reuben from "Along Came Polly," rather than being spirited away by someone like Johnny Depp. It was about as exciting as trying to trade double entendres with Barney Fife. Plus, it set her back 30% of the 401K.

Recently, I found a web site that lists some of the worst plastic surgery disasters of all time. Click here to see for yourself what can happen when you get bored with life and save enough money to take revenge on your body, instead of eating poutine and enjoying a relaxing vacation.
