Back in the August 1985 issue of Ebony magazine, they predicted what stars may look like in the year 2000. I remember seeing this back around the summer of 2009 when Michael Jackson died, and for some reason it’s been making its rounds on the interwebz again. Needless to say they missed the mark on MJ.

As you can see in the article below, Ebony Magazine said that in the year 2000 at the age of 40, Michael Jackson will have “aged gracefully” and would have a “handsome, more mature look.”

As you can see in the photo at the top of the page, Ebony was WAY off – but what if MJ did rock the Billy Dee Williams style dad-stache at the turn of the century? We’ll never know since his look leaned more towards a middle aged white woman, but I can’t even be mad at that because everything MJ did, made him the pop icon that he was.

But Ebony was way off though. LOL
