sylviaplathetic asked: I just wanted to comment on the stuff about MJ having a skin disease by saying that his disease was perfectly treatable. Like, easily and affordably treatable. He refused that treatment and I'm not saying it's wrong esp bc I think a lot of his self esteem problems were only made worse by the media but yeah!! just wanted to mention it!
He had two skin diseases, vitiligo and discoid lupus. He sought treatment for both, but neither of them have a cure, both are ongoing conditions with relapses, especially discoid lupus which has triggers, like sunlight which he specifically avoided.
He never refused treatment for anything.
[Stares incredulously] “Was Michael Jackson on my radar?! I’m black. Michael Jordan, Michael Jackson, and Mike Tyson. Michael Jackson is my favorite artist of all time. Every time I hit the stage, every time I write a song, every time I write a rap, every performance I do, every time I pick out an outfit, I think about Michael Jackson. Michael Jackson is synonymous with the greatest that you could possibly do in music.
