The price of fame and fortune

What do you ask for when you have it all?

Michael Jackson in 1973

Must be tough being famous, yet many people strive for it without thinking of the consequences. It’s got to be cool to have everything your heart desires but not so cool to have to disguise yourself to go get a pack of cigarettes.

Michael Jackson, the king of pop, is no longer with us. He decided to check out from the fame and fortune world, he had run out of disguises. In equal parts I blame the tabloid and prescription drug markets. Being called Jacko must of been a rather harsh pill to swallow and going under anesthesia was apparently his only escape.

To all you Idol wannabes, I give you Michael Jackson Through The Years.
