What’s going on with Michael Jackson’s half an ear?

Michael Jackson, Prince Michael Jackson II

The other day I was looking at a picture of my ex-boyfriend and me, and I realized, “Hey, he doesn’t have an earlobe.” Somehow in all our time together I’d never noticed, but he’s got one of those ears that just hooks onto the head. No lobe needed. And while I would argue that he’s definitely missing a few other necessary lobes as well, he managed to make do without them – even the ear. But somehow the realization left me feeling sort of unsettled. I’d been with this no-lobed person for so long, yet I never even saw it. It was staring me right in the face. And while what I didn’t know obviously didn’t hurt me at the time, after the fact I’ve got to admit, it really freaked me out.

Of course, as with most things, when I compare that experience next to Michael Jackson’s, I tell myself to calm the hell down because clearly things could be worse. Yesterday I woke up with – I kid you not – a teenager-sized pimple for the first time in years. I spent the majority of the day freaking out, until I randomly remembered that story about the fake tip of Michael Jackson’s nose falling off in public about ten years ago. And suddenly the new real estate on my forehead didn’t seem so bad after all. So I’m keeping all that in mind when freaking out about the ear – because it turns out Jacko’s got half an ear too. Naturally.

SHOCKING damage to MICHAEL JACKSON’s ear emerged in a close-up picture yesterday. Bits of skin and cartilage have been hacked off for years to rebuild the Bad star’s nose. Jacko has managed to hide the damage under his long hair since the late 1990s when he first had tissue removed for his reshaped hooter.

The photo taken just days ago in Beverly Hills, California, exposes the true extent of the damage. But our inset picture from 1997 shows Jacko, now suffering skin cancer, with an undamaged ear in Cannes, France.

Douglas McGeorge, President of the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons, said the shape of Jacko’s left ear was “consistent” with cartilage removal from the shell. The NHS do a similar op, usually to correct noses bent in accidents.

I think using the word “shocking” to describe anything going on with Michael Jackson that involves his own body is unnecessary. Really, what could he possibly do to himself that would still be shocking at this point? I have a pixie ear on my left side; perhaps I could sell the extra cartilage to Jacko for some extra cash? Plus I’m practically translucently pale, so we’re probably a decent skin tone match. Though from what I hear he’s suffering money problems – and I won’t part with my ear bitlet for any chunk of change.

The skin cancer thing that The Sun mentions is technically a rumor, by the way. Jacko hasn’t confirmed anything – though considering the tortuous things he’s done to his skin over the years, it’s hard to imagine he hasn’t had some unsavory things growing on him yet. Though he is pictured leaving a medical building in Beverly Hills after supposedly undergoing treatment. With the way things have gone for him I’m sure we’ll find out any day that his brain has been transplanted into a monkey and he’s starting from scratch. Really, that’s about all that’s left that could legitimately be labeled “shocking.”

    God, please watch over those two kids!

  2. Eileen Yover says:

    Um yeah, can’t say this is too shocking to me either. His ear doesn’t look half as bad as his face.

  3. Sarah says:

    He needs to just go away, melt away, whatever. This guy is just gross. I feel bad for his kids, does the third one still exist? You only see the other 2. How does CPS not see this as unsettling?

  4. LovingLife says:

    “I’d been with this no-lobed person for so long, yet I never even saw it.” Its lines like that, that make me LOVE this site!!!!

  5. Victoria says:

    I agree Sarah…why CPS hasn’t stepped in is beyond my comprehension

  6. Your Friend says:

    I guess you are allowed to disfigure yourself without it being considered harmful to your children. I imagine the kids are hidden behind so many people nannies, assistants, lawyers, bodyguards and travel so much that is hard to really nail them down so to speak.

  7. Orangejulius says:

    I’d like to feel sorry for him. But I don’t.

  8. j. ferber says:

    No, the ear doesn’t shock me. I’d be shocked if any part of his body remained untouched and unharmed after all the work he’s had done. I, too, wonder if the black to white skin change (vitiglio, whatever)led to skin cancer. The body can only take so much and the chemicals must have really thinned the skin, making him more prone to skin cancer, I’d think.

  9. valupack says:

    cartilage removed from his ear to help repair his nose, I’m guessing. Epic fail

  10. Cinderella says:

    I would never imagine back in 1983 that Michael Jackson would turn into a reptile. Never.

  11. Zoe says:

    This post is completely dumb. He’s wearing glasses, which obviously bend his ear the same way *gasp* they do to anyone else wearing glasses. Seriously, get a life.

  12. Orangejulius says:

    No, I never would have imagined he’d turn into this either or that he was a pedophile. I’m almost ashamed to admit I once found him cute.

  13. anastasiabeaverhausen says:

    He has three kids, not two. Unfortunately. And you can’t tell me he’s the bio father of those kids, either.

  14. jess says:

    oh geez. it looks like he’s had surgery to make his ears look like elf ears (i.e peter pan ears) this fetish of his has just gone too far.

  15. Minty D says:

    perhaps the 3rd child is being reared out of the sun until its skin color and size match, then Jacko will harvest himself a whole new nose!!! wahahaha!!! (evil scientist laugh)

    Dudes, shocking doesn’t cover this nutter-He’s only contracted to appear on stage for THIRTEEN minutes for the upcoming gigs in london. And that high pitched little voice is like Paris Hilton’s, completely put on to maintain this ‘sweet, innocent’ thing. In reality his voice is as deep as his brothers
