Michael Jackson’s Son, Prince, Details Father’s Struggle With Vitiligo

September 18th, 2023

Michael Jackson’s son, Prince, says that his father wanted to “smooth out his skin” while suffering from vitiligo. He discussed witnessing his father battle the disease during a recent sit-down with Mike Tyson on the Hotboxin‘ podcast.

The legendary boxer began by suggesting that Michael didn’t want to become white, instead suggesting he wanted to “glow.” Prince built off that point, adding: “He had a skin condition called vitiligo. I think it was even on the autopsy report. I think the cause of it– it’s up for speculation. But it’s either vitiligo or some form of lupus that contributed to the vitiligo. And he had a lot of insecurity around, kind of, looking blotchy. So, he wanted to see if he could smooth out his appearance. I think that ‘glowing’ may have also had something to do with it because he was visionary I guess in the way that he thought.”

Later in the interview, Prince also revealed that there is still unreleased music from Jackson in the vault. Unfortunately, due to Jackson’s unusual recording habits, it’s “little snippets” of songs. “When it comes to unreleased music there, what we have in our vault — as I’ve been kind of told — is a lot of really rough works in progress,” he said. “I don’t think my father ever learned how to read sheet music. So as a trained musician, it was really self-taught.” Check out the conversation below.
