The appearance of Michael Jackson’s driver’s license proves that people are still fascinated with the King of Pop three years after his death.
Although much has been made of the singer’s driver’s license picture, it honestly doesn’t look much different than the majority of photos taken by the Department of Motor Vehicles. The image posted by TMZ shows a guy who clearly isn’t happy about having a his picture taken.
As the celebrity gossip website points out, Michael Jackson’s 2005 driver’s license is decidedly different than the card issued back in the 80s. Both images have been embedded below.
According to Global Grind, the FBI released a photograph of the pop star’s identification card shortly after his death in 2009. As you can see, Jackson’s physical appearance had changed quite a bit in roughly two decades.
Michael Jackson’s driver’s license isn’t the only item from the singer’s past to surface in recent weeks. The Inquisitr previously reported that several pieces from the star’s wardrobe were recently auctioned off in California.
In addition to the numerous collectors who walked away with a piece of Jackson’s fashion history, pop star Lady Gaga took home around 55 pieces at the sale hosted by the folks at Julien’s Auctions. The Poker Face singer said on Twitter that she intended to have the items “archived and expertly cared for in the spirit and love of Michael Jackson, his bravery, and fans worldwide.”
Unfortunately, Jackson’s posthumous popularity couldn’t help director Spike Lee’s documentary Bad 25 find an audience when it aired on Thanksgiving Day. According to Entertainment Weekly, the film “was seen by 4.6 million viewers and had a 1.2 rating in the adults 18-49 demographic, down 25 percent from ABC’s musical special last year, ‘A Very Gaga Thanksgiving.’ ”
