I love Michael Jackson

Michael, You Will Always Be The KING Of POP – Jan 1984

On January 27, 1984, Michael and other members of the Jacksons filmed a Pepsi Cola commercial at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. In front of a full house of fans during a simulated concert, pyrotechnics accidentally set Jackson’s hair on fire. He suffered second-degree burns to his scalp. Jackson never fully recovered from this injury. Pepsi settled out of court, and Jackson donated ALL of his $1.5 million settlement to the Brotman Medical Center in Culver City, California, which now has a “Michael Jackson Burn Center” in honor of his donation.
