Michael's Downfall

He Failed to Evolve in the Right Way

No one can deny that the Michael Jackson in this photo from 1984 looks distinctly different from the child that was a key member of his family's band, "The Jackson 5." Michael evolved constantly, thoroughout his tumultuous life. Evolution, in itself, is a species adaptability to become more diversified to meet changes. The problem with Michael is that he took it too far.

When I look at pictures of Michael as a child, then as a teen, a young man in his twenties, and then what he finally became at the end of his life, I am saddened. I see a person who so desperately wanted to change his appearance that he lost who he really was.
