THE LIFE OF MICHAEL JACKSON
On August 29, 1958, Michael Joseph Jackson was seen in
Gary-Indiana. He is a descendant of an African-American, he emerged as the 7th
child of 9 siblings of the couple Joseph Jackson (father) with Katherine
Jackson (mother). His brother is different from Jackie, Tito, Rebbie, Jermaine,
Janet Jackson, La Toya, Randy, Marlon.
Jackson once admitted that since he was young, he had rarely
received abuse from his father, both physically and mentally, like a whip, and
called him with a rude call. However, he also admitted that the discipline
applied by his father had a significant influence on his success.
Jackson once told his childhood when Oprah Winfrey
interviewed him in 1993. At that time he also said to me that when he was a
child, he often cried lonely and sometimes vomited when he saw his father.
During the Living with Michael Jackson (2003), Michael appeared to cry over his
face when he told about his childhood.
Marlon Jackson recounts, once in a dispute, Jackson was
carried upside down and then beaten on his back and buttocks. Joseph (his
father) once wore a scary mask to scare his son, he went into the room,
shouting threatening Jackson. Joseph wrote that he did this to teach his
children so that when he rested, he did not care about the open window.
Jackson began to take on the role of a background singer and
joined in the dance. And at the end of the age of 8, he and Jermaine became the
main singers, and the name of this collection of music was changed to The
Jackson 5. The band toured the central elements of the United States
extensively from 1966 to 1968. In 1966 they won many shows local level scout.
The Jackson 5 band has recorded a lot of songs, classified
as “Big Boy,” for local record label Steelwotn in 1967 and signed a
contract with Motown Records in 1968. The Jackson 5 began to enter the chart
when four singles were tight (I Want You Back, ABC, The Love You Save, and I’ll
Be There) occupy the first ladder on the Billboard Hot 100.
In the early days of The Jackson 5, elements of public
relations Mowton claimed that Jackson was 9 years old, even though he was 11
years old at the time. In 1972, he began releasing 4 Motown solo albums, Got to
Be There and included Ben.
The Jackson 5 signed a new contract with CBS Record in June
1975, in the division Philadelphia International Records, which was later
renamed Epic Records. The name of this group was processed from The Jackson 5
to The Jacksons and produced six albums between 1976 and 1984, where Michael
Jackson wrote the majority of the songs.
The song was coined by The Jackson band between the
different “Down to the Ground,” “This Place Hotel” and
“Can You Feel It.” The Jackson also has its TV program on CBS, The
Jacksons, which launched from 1976 to 1977.
In 1982, Epic released Jackson’s second album, Thriller. The
appearance of this album was felt like the peak of Jackson’s career. This
second album survived on the top 10 of the Billboard 200 for about 80
consecutive weeks. Seven songs from this album are simultaneously included in
the top ten Billboard Hot 100, three of which are “Billie Jean,”
“Beat It,” and “Want to Be Startin ‘Somethin’.”
On March 25, 1983, Michael Jackson appeared live on the
particular television show Motown 25: Yesterday, Today, Forever. At the
following event, he once showed his popular dance movement, Moonwalk. His
performance at this event was witnessed by 47 million people, and could only be
matched by Elvis Presley and The Beatles’ performances and The Ed Sullivan
In 1987, Jackson released the album Bad, which is the
album’s fun after stopping about five years. The total album sales that are not
a little awaited by these enthusiasts are not as high as the Thriller album,
but still can be felt commercially successful, and successfully spawned seven
hit singles in the United States, five of (Dirty Diana, Bad, Man in the Mirror,
I Just Can’t Stop Loving You, and The Way You Make Me Feel). This album has
sold more than 30 million copies until 2008 worldwide.
On May 14, 1984, Jackson was invited to the White House to
receive the award given directly at that time by US President Ronald Reagan.
This award was handed over to Jackson’s concern for people who have alcohol and
drug addiction, Jackson’s donation for charities that help people to emerge
from alcohol dependence and drug abuse.
In the same year, he won 8 awards at the 1984 Grammy Awards.
This year he also held a Victory Tour themed tour which was witnessed in total
by more than 2 million people. He donated $ 5 million in income from Victory
Tour to charity.
Jackson, along with Lionel Richie, also made the single
“We Are the World” which was launched to all the world for a charity
destination, which is to help underprivileged people in Africa and the United
States. This single was sung by 39 celebrities, belonging to Jackson. This only
became the best selling single of all time, with total sales of 20 million
In 1988, Jackson released his elaborate autobiography,
Moonwalk, which took about 4 years to complete. In his autobiography, Jackson
recorded about his childhood, The Jackson 5, and the cruel treatment he
He also wrote if he only had two plastic surgeries on his
face. Jackson then released a film called Moonwalker which contained a group of
recordings and short films played by Michael Jackson himself, and Joe Pesci. In
Moonwalker is a film played by Michael Jackson himself. The
film consists of a brief clip of Michael Jackson’s history, a collection of
many video clips from Bad’s album, and extra scenes that compose the clips into
a whole storyline.
The title of the film is taken from the Moonwalk jargon, a
dance tip popularized by Jackson in his performance at Motown 25: Yesterday,
Today, Forever. Although the mass media popularized the jargon, Jackson himself
chose the name for the film’s title.
At the beginning of this film was launched in conjunction
with the launch of the Bad album in 1987. But at the end of the film was
introduced as an element of the Bad World Tour concert. This film was first
aired in British cinemas on December 26, 1988. The film was just launched on
January 10, 1989, in the format of Home Video after Jackson completed the Bad
World Tour. Based on data from April 17, 1989, the film has sold up to 800,000
During his youth, Jackson had brown skin, but since the
beginning of 1980, his skin had turned white. These skin discoloration provoked
media questions and caused rumors, including rumors that Jackson deliberately
whitened his skin.
Based on information from a biography written by J. Randy
Taraborrelli, in 1986, Jackson was diagnosed with vitiligo and lupus disease,
the vitiligo disease created white skin in many parts.
This disease causes Jackson to be sensitive to sunlight. The
treatment handed over to Jackson for his illness resulted in his skin becoming
more white. In addition to the evolution of skin color, he is also known to do
plastic surgery on the elements of the nose, forehead, lips, and cheekbones.
