vitiligo requet by anonymous

Is the third picture his arm? And what is going on in the sixth picture? Is that makeup or blood or?

Third picture is of Michael’s leg @ the doctors office in the early 2000’s. A spider bit his leg and he had to have the doctor check it, and it shows his vitiligo. Sixth picture is his glove after the Victory tour and it shows his cover up makeup that rubbed off on the glove after sweating in it. Really sad, but the effort Michael made to cover up his disease is astounding. :(



how can people be so heartless and tell him he didn’t want to be who he was. meanwhile, the TRUTH, is that he was going through a traumatizing (because of identity and such being stripped away from you) transformation due to a horrible disease :(




Michael Jackson At Chasen’s

1978: Yes, believe it or not, this is a young and handsome Michael Jackson. I met him and then over the years, I photographed him at a bunch of parties and concerts. This photo was taken on the sidewalk at the old Chasen’s Restaurant at the corner of Doheny Road and Beverly Blvd (where Bristol Farms market sits today).  Chasen’s had the best chili and fried chicken. This particular party was for the Grammy’s. The photos inside were boring and too posed. Michael wanted a break from the crowd of backslappers and stepped outside for some fresh air. I was right behind him. What I like about this photograph is the stain on the sidewalk. It is interesting that I had full access to Michael at this party and the most memorable photograph was taken in the street! Photo by Brad Elterman
