* AffectionateNickname: "Mike" by his family and fans, sometimes even "Mikey". And apparently the children he were friends with called him "Applehead", probably because of the FunnyAfro he used to have. He liked all those nicknames.
** Michael himself sometimes called his brother Jermaine "Erms" or "Maine". And according to Jermaine, if Michael gave you a nickname, he was fond of you.

* Hypocrite: Not Michael himself, but how the media and antifans treated him after his death. Before his death they gladly spread child molesting rumours about him while gladly called him Wacko Jacko. After his death, they suddenly regarded him a legend who was horribly misunderstood. [[FlatWhat What.]]

** Also, Music/Thriller is very edgy comparing to his earlier more light-hearted albums, with the darker subjects of zombies, babies trap and gangster violence.

* StrongFamilyResemblance: Many of the Jackson brothers looked strikingly alike when they were children. Also, back in the '90s, the RunningGag was that Michael's public appearances were actually his sister [=LaToya=].
** Michael and Marlon apparently looked similar enough to be mistaken for twins when they were younger.

* DawsonCasting: In his short film "Bad", he played a high school atudent despite being 29 years old at the time. However, he looked rather convincing: [[https://www.google.com.vn/imgres?imgurl=https%3A%2F%2Fs-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com%2F236x%2F2e%2F2f%2Fb6%2F2e2fb60db24f09f85b2b91793359f370.jpg&imgrefurl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.pinterest.com%2Fpin%2F393502086164338858%2F&docid=cVTs-otjdo1hQM&tbnid=MA2AFWGsXV6N6M%3A&vet=1&w=236&h=179&safe=off&bih=616&biw=360&q=michael%20in%20bad%20movie&ved=0ahUKEwiBxYng5_LRAhVHgbwKHS5mDkAQMwgYKAAwAA&iact=mrc&uact=8]], [[https://www.google.com.vn/imgres?imgurl=http%3A%2F%2Fimages4.fanpop.com%2Fimage%2Fuser_images%2F2650000%2FIloveMichael28-2650180_650_500.jpg&imgrefurl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.fanpop.com%2Ffans%2FIloveMichael28%2Fgallery%2Fimage%2F2650180%2Fmichael-jackson-bad-sexy-short-movie&docid=U59EKa05YXTa-M&tbnid=aZXavh21nsIxXM%3A&vet=1&w=650&h=500&safe=off&bih=616&biw=360&q=michael%20in%20bad%20movie&ved=0ahUKEwiBxYng5_LRAhVHgbwKHS5mDkAQMwgZKAEwAQ&iact=mrc&uact=8]]

* OlderThanTheyLook: Plastic surgeries aside, Michael always looked very good for a 50-year-old.much younger than his age. For example, in this picture: [[https://www.google.com.vn/imgres?imgurl=https%3A%2F%2Fs-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com%2F736x%2Fd1%2Fd6%2F88%2Fd1d688aca0d5919fc4959145df72546a.jpg&imgrefurl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.pinterest.com%2FTammieNicole%2Fthe-jackson-5-the-jacksons%2F&docid=2Ld32mTNcgq4qM&tbnid=1YVQPsmw1faY_M%3A&vet=1&w=394&h=400&safe=off&bih=560&biw=360&q=the%20jacksons%202001%20live&ved=0ahUKEwjM9bKZ5fLRAhUCerwKHeh_BucQMwglKA0wDQ&iact=mrc&uact=8]], he looked much younger than all of his brothers despite not being younger that much and there was younger brother Randy. Also this is him in the 1988 Bad Tour, when he was 30 years old: [[https://scontent-hkg3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/fr/cp0/e15/q65/16508371_689693521213511_2881338516623188200_n.jpg?efg=eyJpIjoidCJ9&oh=74da8bbace9519bee331f6a4f145f9f0&oe=5941B14F]], but he looked like he was in his early twenties.

* DeadArtistsAreBetter: Following his death, many people considered him to be a genius who was unfairly ridiculed and persecuted. Never mind that right up until his death was announced, they were likely happily mocking him along with everyone else. Many "new fans" only discovered his work after his death.

* FakeShemp : Famously, when he wasn't available, the video for the Jacksons' "Torture" used a wax dummy and elaborate costumes.

His full-fledged solo career took off in the late [[TheSeventies 1970s]]. Though songs from his first serious solo effort, ''Music/OffTheWall'' (1979), were extremely popular, he reached unprecedented superstardom in 1982 with his album ''Music/{{Thriller}}''. ''Thriller'' is still the best-selling album of all time today, and won a total of 8 Grammy Awards.

A few weeks before Jackson was to launch a 50-show farewell concert engagement in London, England, he died due to an overdose of propofol (a hospital-grade anaesthetic) on June 25, 2009, at the age of fifty. (Dr. Conrad Murray, the doctor who administered the medication to Jackson, was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in November 2011. Jackson's family sued tour organizer AEG for negligence, but lost that case in 2013.) Jackson's memorial service that July 7 was broadcast live around the world; he is interred in Forest Lawn Memorial Park Cemetery in Glendale, California. Later that year, the first of many posthumous Jackson-related projects, ''This Is It'', compiled from rehearsal footage of the aborted London shows, was released.
