英会話ブログ その585     Michael Jackson, King of Pop and King of Media-hype (2)

2015/01/26

Soon he became the super star of the group and began a solo career in 1971.  I wasn't a fan.

Originally, Michael Jackson was a "black man", an Afro-American.  But as he became popular (and very eccentric) as a pop idol, he underwent cosmetic surgery hundreds of times and used skin bleaching chemicals to turn himself into a  "white man".

As he aged, his face began to fall apart from so many surgeries.  The thin skin covering his plastic nose actually peeled off.

He went on to become the "King of Pop" worth hundreds of millions of dollars.

What's your opinion of him ?                                     (V.C)
