10 things we found out about the king of pop MJ after his passing.
Michael Jackson was one of the strangest public figures the world has ever seen. Though he was a musical genius adored by millions—if not billions—of people, everyone could tell that something was wrong with him. It started with the onstage mannerisms, then the skin-whitening, then the bizarre public and private antics, and then the plastic surgery. It all culminated in 2003 with the infamous allegations that left a permanent scar on the singer’s reputation—even if he was eventually acquitted. During that time, Michael’s home and personal theme park, Neverland Ranch, became a crime scene that was raided by police. What they found explained the enigma that was Michael Jackson and let us come to grips with all that had happened. The Neverland Ranch still exists, though the late Jackson’s possessions have long been removed. However, we still have the photos and stories of the ranch that Michael built, which help to give us an inside look at his life.
