1985 Magazine Predicted What Michael Jackson Would Look Like In The Year 2000 [PHOTOS]

Ebony Magazine, in August of 1985, published an article about what stars of the time might look like in the year 2000.  Michael Jackson, who was at the top of the world at the time, was one of the featured stars.  The photo features what the King of Pop would look like at the age of 40.  Were they correct?  Let’s just say the folks at Ebony were not psychics.

The photo below depicts what Ebony guessed Michael would look like in the year 2000 at age 40.  The article suggests that he would “aged gracefully and would have a handsome, more mature look.”  Well…looks like they were wrong from all angles.  I personally think this picture looks like Lando Calrissian (aka Billy Dee Williams).

Here is what Michael Jackson actually looked like in the year 2000 at age 40.  Needless to say there is a staggering difference between the photos.  Somewhere along the line, things got weird for Michael and never returned to normal until his death in 2009.
