Michael Jackson Was Totally Bald
MICHAEL Jackson Watch: Michael Jackson’s bald head, fragile body and 200 songs worth £60 million.
The Sun: Jacko’s Autopsy
- Four jabs into singer’s heart
- Broken ribs and bruises
- Starved and totally bald
8st 1oz, no food just pills in his stomach, bald, bruised, his ribs broken by CPR, 4 needle wounds near his heart…
It’s the Michael Jackson recipe. Add scars from “at leasts 13” cosmetic surgery operations and you have your very own effigy. Forget the man and his music – the Sun is still enjoying the freak show.
To conclude: Looks like the dead Michael Jackson wasn’t all that well.
As inquiries into the tragedy last night focused on the star’s personal physician Dr Conrad Murray, a source close to the Jackson entourage said: “Michael’s family and fans will be horrified when they realise the appalling state he was in. He was skin and bone, his hair had fallen out and had been eating nothing but pills when he died. Injection marks all over his body and the disfigurement caused by years of plastic surgery show he’d been in terminal decline for years.
“His doctors and the hangers-on stood by as he self-destructed. Somebody is going to have to pay.”
How much for the T-shirt?

This is the “family’s demand to Jacko’s doctor”
Or to put it another way:
Michael Jackson’s dad Joe Jackson predicts death will increase Jacko’s legend as police confirm Dr Murray is ‘not a suspect’
Michael Jackson’s distraught dad Joe yesterday predicted his son’s tragic death would transform him into even more of a legend. An emotional Joe said: “Michael was the biggest superstar in the world and in history.
“He was loved by everybody, whether poor or wealthy.”
So says the bereaved father. But his words seem to merge into the Mirror, which takes on the role of an official mourner:
Joe appealed to Jacko’s millions of fans to keep his memory alive so he would continue to be an inspirational figure to future generations.
He told them: “Please do not despair, because Michael will continue to live on in each and every one of you. Continue to spread his message because that is what he would want you to do. Carry on, so his legacy will live forever.”
Wacko Jacko is dead. Michael Jackson lives! Forever!
The Guardian: “Doctors hires lawyer as Jacksons hire pathologist”
The doctor who was with Michael Jackson when he died has hired a notoriously aggressive lawyer and is insisting he has done nothing wrong as the singer’s death appeared to open rifts between his family and other players in his complicated life.
The lawyer, Matt Alford, described on his own website as an “intimidating bad ass” who goes about his work “with a scorched-earth mentality“, went on television with an impassioned defence of his client, Conrad Murray, underlining that he was just a witness and not a suspect.
LA police issued a brief statement after talking to Murray on Saturday, saying he had been cooperative and provided “information which will aid the investigation”.
Murray was with Jackson when he suffered a heart attack at his home in Los Angeles on Thursday. His lawyer said the doctor found Jackson in his bed with a faint pulse, but not breathing, so he immediately began administering CPR. An official postmortem failed to determine the cause of death, pending toxicology tests that could take four to six weeks.
The Jackson family hired a private pathologist to conduct a second postmortem examination over the weekend and hinted that they might use the results to press for criminal charges – something the official police investigation has ruled out for the moment.
The family questioned whether the doctor had carried out resuscitation attempts properly, pointing out that on the tape of the emergency call requesting an ambulance he was described as “pumping” Jackson on a bed, not on the floor or another hard surface.
Daily Mail: “Jackson: the mustery of the slot 50 minues”
Jackson’s aides took an astonishing 50 minutes to call an ambulance, it was revealed last night. Their 911 emergency call was not made until frantic attempts to resuscitate him had failed. The entire drama was witnessed by the singer’s 12-year-old eldest child Prince – who thought his father was clowning around before a doctor began pumping his chest to try to start his heart.
But 50-year-old Jackson never regained consciousness – and Prince watched ‘in a trance’ when he realised his father was lying dead in front of him.
It’s like a horror story. Like this horror story – the one Jackson wrote for young Paris.

And all the while the media picks up a huge Tannoy and screams “REST IN PEACE!”
