|Brazilian Michael Jackson superfan used acid to lighten his skin.
Michael Jackson has been dead 5 years but his influence is still as strong as ever,take this Brazilian fan for example.
The Brazilian Michael Jackson superfan used acid to lighten his skin and spent about£2,000 on a series of cosmetic procedures to look like his hero.
Brazilian Michael Jackson fan, 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 the Brazilian fan 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.
'I wasn't able to reach notes like Michael before but after surgery I can now sing some notes in falsetto.'

Following his first bid at surgery, Michael Jackson fan Gliedson, of Fortalenza, continued in his mission to imitate the world famous pop star by having hyaluronic acid injected into his face, which had a whitening effect, and botox injections to enhance the area under his eyes. The former drama teacher also had surgery to close the gaps in his teeth and his eyebrows tattooed.
Brazilian Gliedson is now hoping to raise enough money by imitating Michael Jackson to have even more surgery. He was encouraged to become a Michael Jackson impersonator when he was just 19 after his drama students suggested he looked like the pop star.
He spends one and a half hours making up to transform into his superstar idol.
