Speaking of Michael Jackson…

posted by on July 20 at 10:53 AM

…which remains my all-time favorite sport, forensic artist Stephen Mancusi has posted his works depicting how Jackson might have aged without plastic surgery and all the rest of the shit he’s done to his head.


See the whole series here. (And thanks for the heads-up, Towleroad.)

But do you think he would have continued to make music I actually like if he looked like this now? Because before Dangerous, Michael was the SHIT.

It looks like that in this timeline, shortly after the Jackson 5 broke up in 1972, Michael Jackson became a janitor at an elementary school.

OMG it's a funny post involving a black person! That's totally racist!

Would he still have that wispy, lispy voice?

It is a little bit racist to have a funny post involving a black person. Second one in less than 24 hours I might add. Black people aren't funny. They aren't living their lives to be laughed at by seattle hipster twats. As a puerto rican 20 something, Mr. Poe should know this. I was hoping they could get along better.

if michael jackson were appalachian, then you could make fun of him & his culture all day long.

we don't make fun of michael jackson because he's black, we make fun of him because he's a twisted, closeted freak.

actually, i don't make fun of him at all, BECAUSE NOTHING ABOUT MICHAEL JACKSON IS FUNNY. its TRAGEDY.

Yeah, he was a real hottie then. Used sparingly, plastic surgery isn't all that bad.

I thought a lot of MJ's facial problems were caused by his earlier plastic surgery, which may have looked OK at the time but basically caused his nose to start rotting off.

did he become a priest at age 70 in his progressed life?

Good work, though he looks like the average working man here. I think his lifestyle would have to be taken into consideration, as environment and diet plays an important part on aging, and he would have had a thinner face and deeper set eyes as he doesn't strike me as a big eater, but does strike me as a workaholic.
