Michael Jackson (1958-2009) was an American Singer and is often called the “King of Pop”



He is reported to have suffered from vitiligo and the whitening of the rest of his black skin was done with monobenzone 20% (benoquin).

His skin progressively became white and the gradual change can be seen in the musical video “Thriller”



He did suffer from Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD) and had his nose operated several times (rhinoplasty) over a 20 year period – so many surgeries where done that resulted in loss of nose skin tissue obliging him to wear a mask in his later years. Other than the hair and skin changes, something he could never accept was the appearance of his nose.
