The
First
Moonwalk

Jackson
first
executed
the
moonwalk
on
March
25,
1983,
during
a
performance
of
‘Billie
Jean’
on
the
TV
special
Motown
25:
Yesterday,
Today,
Forever.
As
he
glided
across
the
stage,
seemingly
defying
gravity
and
made
it
into
hearts
of
millions
across
the
globe.


Style

MJ
is
known
for
many
trademarks
from
ultra-racy
yet
iconic
crotch
grabs
to
his
tailored
suits,
hats
and
much
more.
The
singer
and
dancer
kept
his
fans
on
their
toes
by
setting
new
trends
even
with
his
iconic
curly
locks.
The
artist’s
original
aesthetic
became
his
trademark
style
over
the
years.


Eyeliner

Apart
from
being
a
fashion
icon,
it
was
Jackson’s
quintessential
touch-up
of
eyeliner
that
set
off
a
massive
trend
among
fans.
MJ
used
to
wear
full
make-up
other
than
just
the
eyeliner.
He
reportedly
had
been
diagnosed
with
the
skin
disorder
vitiligo,
which
results
in
white
patches
on
the
skin
and
sensitivity
to
sunlight.
He
later
revealed
that
to
treat
the
condition
and
to
even
out
his
skin,
he
used
makeup.

Glove

Apart
from
his
sleek
ties
and
oversized
suits,
the
King
Of
Pop
also
wore
dazzling
gloves.
However,
the
iconic
single-hand
glove
was
to
hide
his
skin
problems.
According
to
reports,
MJ
was
beginning
to
develop
the
vitiligo
on
his
hand.
Cicely
Tyson,
a
friend
of
Jackson’s
said,
“The
glove
was
to
cover
the
vitiligo;
that’s
how
that
glove
came
into
being.”


Plastic
Surgery
and
Changing
Skin
Colour

Apart
from
his
professional
life,
MJ
also
stayed
in
news
for
his
personal
life.
The
singer
insisted
that
he’d
only
ever
gone
under
the
knife
twice,
however,
fans
were
convinced
otherwise.
The
change
in
his
skin
colour
also
raised
some
alarms.
According
to
reports,
it
was
due
to
vitiligo
the
singer
was
thought
to
have
purposefully
bleached
himself
beyond
his
natural
colour
to
escape
the
symptoms.
