“My appearance began to really change when I was about fourteen. I grew quite a bit in height. People who didn’t know me would come into a room expecting to be introduced to cute little Michael Jackson and they would walk right past me. I would say “I’m Michael,” and they’d look doubtful. Michael was a cute little kid; I was a gangly adolescent heading toward five feet ten inches. I was not the person they expected or even wanted to see. Adolescence is hard enough, but imagine having your own natural insecurities about the changes your body is undergoing heightened by the negative reaction of others.”

""I love the movies and have since I was real little. For two hours you can be transported to another place. Films can take you anywhere. That’s what I like. I can sit down and say, "Okay, nothing else exists right now. Take me to a place that’s wonderful and make me forget about my pressures and my worries and day-to-day schedule.""
— Michael Jackson
"Journalists seem willing to say anything to sell a paper. They say I’ve had my eyes widened, that I want to look more white. More white? What kind of statement is that? I didn’t invent plastic surgery. It’s been around for a long time. A lot of very fine, very nice people have had plastic surgery. No one writes about their surgery and levies such criticism at them. It’s not fair. Most of what they print is a fabrication. It’s enough to make you want to ask, “What happened to truth? Did it go out of style?”"
— Michael Jackson
