A Brazilian Michael Jackson super fan used acid to lighten his skin and spent about £2,000 on a series of cosmetic procedures to look like his hero. More pictures after the break
Antonio Gleidson Rodrigues, 32, the self-proclaimed number one Michael Jackson impersonator in Brazil, has had rhinoplasty in order to imitate the King Of Pop and spends around four hours each day rehearsing his dance moves.
Gleidson Jackson, as he likes to be known, had his first operation five years ago when he had his nasal septum corrected to allow him to reach higher notes when singing. He said: ‘I wasn’t able to reach notes like Michael before but after surgery I can now sing some notes in falsetto.’
And what is it he really stands to gain from all this?
