Title: Michael Jackson and Judy Garland had similarities
Post by Admin Saovaluck on 17th Nov, 2011 at 8:54am
When we talk about world-class entertainers, it doesn't get any bigger than Michael Jackson and Judy Garland.

Two of the greatest male and female entertainers of all time, but if we were to choose who is the greatest between these two superstars, Judy Garland gets the nod by a whisker, only because she lived during Hollywood's Golden Era to face competition when talent was at its best.

Michael Jackson was world famous as the "King of Pop" and Judy Garland was world renowned as the reigning "Queen of the Musicals". Michael Jackson loved Judy Garland, and seeing her performances on TV would have inspired him. And Judy Garland in the final years of her life had the opportunity to watch Michael Jackson performing as a young lad in the Jackson 5.



Two of the hottest American superstars lived two parallel lives, so lets have a look at these similarities.

  • Michael Jackson and Judy Garland both began their musical career as young five year olds with their siblings. Michael Jackson was the lead singer with his older brothers dubbed "The Jackson 5", and Judy Garland was the star attraction in the song-and-dance performances with her older sisters dubbed "The Gumm Sisters", although she debut on stage singing "Jingle Bells" during the holiday season when she was two years old.

    With so much cushion from MJ's hair, a bird can probably make a nest on top of this head.

    A nice cushion, his hair would definitely keep them warm.

    I don't know, but I wouldn't be surprised if Michael Jackson wore a wig or hair extensions to give his afro hair some volume.

    According to the coroner's autopsy, it's been confirmed that he was bald when he died, and his long black hair that we've been accustomed to seeing, is actually a wig. Whether he started wearing a wig or hair extensions during his childhood is another thing.
