On Monday’s “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” Michael Jackson’s mother Katherine opens up for the very first time since her son’s June 2009 death. Among the topics covered during the show was Michael’s addiction to plastic surgery.
Katherine told Oprah that when Michael was an adolescent, he thought he was ugly, and “one day made up his mind to get his nose done.” He had so many procedures his nose got smaller each time, to the point that his nose looked “like a toothpick,” the late pop star’s mother said. She even asked Michael’s surgeon, if asked to operate again, to pretend that he’d done the procedure.
Katherine also tells Oprah that she spoke to her son about his addiction to drugs. “I spoke to him about them once, when I had heard it, and he denied it. I was telling him I didn’t want to hear one day that he had overdosed, because it would break my heart,” Katherine said.
In other Jackson news, the first single from Michael’s new album was released on his website. “Breaking News” is a “never heard before song by Michael,” which was recorded in 2007 in New Jersey and recently finished, according to the site.
