The many faces of Michael Jackson

Singer Michael Jackson is back in the spotlight as he testifies in the court case in which he is being sued by his promoter for $21.2m (14m).
Jackson's appearance has commanded as many column inches as the case itself, fuelling speculation and comment over his facial features.

BBC News Online looks back at the many faces of Michael Jackson.




Jackson spoke in the Los Angeles court as a witness



Jackson spoke at Oxford University union in 2000 (left) and visited the House of Commons in 2001



Jackson met the crowds at the Carousel of Hope, a star-studded charity gala in 2000


He briefly married Lisa-Marie Presley before splitting in 1996, when this picture was taken


Jackson's image did not change that much between 1993 (left) and 1996



Jackson appeared on Top of the Pops in 1989 (left) and by 1992 he had radically changed how he looked



His famous Thriller video brought worldwide fame in 1984 (left) and by 1988 and he was still a musical success story



Jackson looked very different aged 14 in 1972 (left). Seven years later he appeared on BBC Radio 1


CAN SOMEONE EXPLAIN IT TO ME, HOW MICHAEL JACKSON AS A 40 Y/O MAN IS STILL EXTREMELY POPULAR WITH THE YOUTH OF THE WORLD???

he's a picture of discontenment.

Madame Oracene Williams could certainly teach the French & Belgian crowds on how to upgrade their respective primitive behaviours during a tennis match.

Jackson hits back at promoter

Singer Michael Jackson has appeared to question the honesty of German music publicist Marcel Avram, who is suing him for $21.2m (14m) over the cancellation of the millennium concerts.
Answering questions from the prosecution on the third day of his trial, Mr Jackson said that Mr Avram - who has worked with him since 1972 - was not totally trustworthy.
"As a tour promoter I think he does a wonderful job," he said. "But when it comes to finance I don't know if I totally trust him."

Mr Avram contends that the reclusive star pulled out of a deal to perform in Sydney, Australia, and Honolulu over the millennium.

But Mr Jackson said the shows were cancelled by Mr Avram, after the promoter realised they would not be as profitable as he had hoped.

'Unresponsive'

The star claimed ownership of the idea of getting the millennium concerts recognised by the Guinness Book of Records as the most-watched performances in history.


Michael Jackson is a long-established star

"It's possible that [Avram] mistakenly thinks he came up with that idea, but I know I came up with it," he said.

Mr Jackson added that Mr Avram was unresponsive to his calls to make the concerts "innovative".

However, Mr Avram's lawyer, Louis Miller, said he had caught Mr Jackson in "more inconsistencies and contradictions than any witness I've ever seen in my 30 years of practising law".

'Unflattering photos'

On Thursday, Mr Jackson arrived late at the Santa Barbara County Superior Court, north of Los Angeles, for "medical reasons".

"Jackson's lawyer is said to have objected to unflattering photos of the star taken by a court photographer on the first say of the hearing," said the BBC's David Willis in Los Angeles.

But the programme also revealed that the judge had summoned a photographer into chambers following the complaint by Mr Jackson's lawyers.

The pictures, taken when Mr Jackson had removed his trademark surgical mask while giving evidence, reveal a rare glimpse of the face of the 44-year-old pop superstar, who is said to have undergone extensive plastic surgery.

The star spent much of Wednesday on the witness stand, being grilled about why he did not appear at the two concerts.


The audience had won a lottery for seats

Mr Jackson's lawyer told the court that Mr Avram had agreed the singer was to have been paid $15m (9m) for the concerts, but Mr Miller maintained that his client had no motive to cancel them.

The promoter said he tried for six months to reach an amicable agreement with Mr Jackson over the concerts, which had been billed as Michael Jackson and Friends.

They were to feature other performers including Ringo Starr and Mariah Carey.

Mr Jackson's lawyer, Zia Modabber, said Mr Avram postponed the concerts in October 1999, when he met with the singer's representatives.

"He could not live up to the huge promises he made to Mr Jackson," Mr Modabber said.

The court proceedings are being watched by about 30 people who have won a lottery for seats.

The case continues.

No, that was a joke.

But seriously if he wants to have a nosejob or whatever I think this is his business and why is the world obsessing over him so much? Elvis had a nosejob but people dont obsess over that.

Anton, you have to admit he has not just had a nose job, he has done the "Complete City Reconstruction" job. He has spent his life looking for media attention, he just never thought it would go wrong and the general public would get sick of his little "Play me" lines. I also strongly wonder why a man would pay a little boy off instead of fighting for his innocence. He says it was to make it all go away, the young boy turns 21 next year and intends to hold a media conference because the restrictions of the pay off are over. Lets wait to see what he has to say. He will either clear Michael or prove him to be a pedophile. I got a feeling it will be the latter.

this thread has made a trun for the worst!

1. There are other things in the world much more important than what is Michael doing to his face like hunger, disease, racism, poverty, etc.
2. I would rather focus on his song i like like thriller and human nature than obsess on his face.
3. If your son was abused by mIchaael Jackson would you accept money or put him in jail? Hello, they just wanted some money. It's a shame I think, but people love money.
