Case Study On Michael Jackson
Are there biological factors that affect his/her behavior?
Michael Jackson has been through a lot of changes, biologically. He was African-American when he later then developed a skin condition, where he was forced to go through many surgeries that changed him completely. Some things he had the option of not changing such as his nose and whatnot. When Jackson was younger he was exposed to verbal abuse and physical abuse from his father, which led him to change things such as his nose. I believe that Michael did things such as changing the appearance of his nose and face was because of the verbal abuse from his father. The changing of the skin though I believe was not something optional that he had a choice to do, he was suffering from Vitiligo which was something beyond his control. The plastic surgeries that were optional that Jackson conducted on himself where something he chose to do.

Are there psychological factors that affect his/her behavior? (what he or she thinking?)
Are there social factors that affect his /her behavior?
Michael Jackson was the eighth child from ten in his family. When he was a child he had a troubled relationship with his father, he was physically, emotionally and verbally abused by his father. He has father was so strict with him; he used to make fun of him and say that he had a fat nose. MJ suffered from loneliness, and vomited on the sight of his father, because of his dad’s abuse Michael Jackson became dissatisfied with his appearance throughout his life. He also suffered from nightmares, chronic sleep problems, and remained childlike throughout his life. Michael Jackson says that the strictness of his father helped him succeed to what he became today. They were a poor family who lived in a 3 bedroom house. Michael was not very wealthy, their income was very low, and so when he became famous he donated money to organizations and charities. Michael Jackson started singing when he was 5 years old with his brothers. At 8 years old he started sharing the lead vocals with his brother. Between 1972 and 1975 Michael released four solo studio albums after these albums he started becoming famous.
Michael Jackson was known as the king of pop because of his incredible voice, dance moves, and amazing talent, because of that, it helped him rise to fame. When someone is that famous, they tend to have some biopsychsocial problems. What made him famous was when he started singing at a young age with his brothers in a boy band, with pressure from his father.
The Bio History of Michael Joseph Jackson began when he was born on the 29th of August 1958 in Gary, Indiana. He was the 7th of nine children. (brothers: Sigmund "Jackie", Toriano "Tito", Jermaine, Marlon, Steven "Randy", and sisters Rebbie, Janet and La-Toya Jackson. Michael began his musical career at the age of 5 as the lead singer of the Jackson 5 who formed in 1964. In these early years the Jackson 5, Jackie, Jermaine, Tito, Marlon and lead singer Michael played local clubs and bars in Gary Indiana and moving further afield as their talents grew and they could compete in bigger competitions. From these early days Michael would be at the same clubs as big talented stars of their days, such as Jackie Wilson and would be learning from them even back then. In 1977 Michael made his first film debut when he starred in the musical 'The Wiz.
In 1982 Michael Jackson released the world's largest selling album of all time, 'Thriller'. This album produced 7 hit singles, breaking yet again more records, and went on to sell over 50 million copies worldwide. Michael was keen to use music video or short films as he called them to promote his singles from the album. He worked with the best directors and producers, using the latest technology and special effects for the hit song 'Billie Jean' The short film 'Thriller' used the latest make-up artists technology combined with fantastic dancing and choreography, to produce a 14 minute video, with a start, a middle and an ending. This video was so successful that 'The Making Of Michael Jackson's Thriller' became the world's largest selling home video, combined with soaring album sales. In 1984 Michael won a record breaking 8 Grammy awards in one night. In 1994 Michael married Lisa Marie Presley, daughter of rock legend Elvis Presley. The marriage only lasted for 19 months, as they divorced in 1996.
Michael Jackson was known for being a pedophile, he was accused of molesting a 13 year old child. I think that there are some psychological factors that affect this behavior which leads back to the abuse from his father and living as a child star where he did not really have any kind of childhood. He suffered a lot of sickness and one of them was lack of sleep which is a psychological problem. I believe that the reason Michael abused the little child in such a way was because of his suffered childhood. It is said that when a child is deprived from a proper childhood they grow up and tend to do actions are frowned upon by society and illegal. One thing that Michael did mention was that because of his father, even though he might have suffered, it made him who he was today.
