Jacko Goes White for "Ebony"

Michael Jackson does a great impersonation of a beautiful white woman for the cover of this month's Ebony magazine. The tophat and tails is an homage to Fred Astaire.

The next picture is from way back in the day of a 12 year old Jackson, before his bout with "vitiligo", a skin disease that results in loss of pigment.

And the last picture is of a person who actually does have vitiligo.

Sorry, Mike, it's just not flyin' with me.

    I so hear what you are saying about MJ however, an option for patients suffering from vitiligo is to bleach all of their skin completely. Clearly that is the option that good old Mikey J. has chosen. I don't blame him for that. Imagine the psychological stress that you would feel being in the spotlight and having a ravishing skin disease?
    Go easy.

    Hey, I am going easy, and I did give MJ lots of credit for making himself into a very beautiful woman! I just don't happen to believe that he sufferes from that particular disease. I think his suffering is more in the mental arena.....

    This not a beautifull woman but poor king of pop.Actuall all cradit goes to vitiligo from which MJ was suffering.
    Before the MJ's story of the vitiligo peoples was no so familiar with vitiligo.
    According to the some authorize vitiligo sites like and other our millions of
    population is suffering from the vitiligo.
    This is a fact that due to the MJ's Vitiligo, now vitiligo has more popularity as compare
    to the past.
