    Default Busted: Egyptian statue's a dead ringer for Michael Jackson

    (Right down to the busted nose, but statue looks a little better)

    Busted: Statue's a Dead Ringer for Jacko | NBC Chicago



    The Pharaoh of Pop doesn’t quite have the same ring to it as King of Pop, but visitors to Chicago’s Field Museum could swear that’s Jacko’s face on a 3,000-year-old Egyptian bust.The spitting image limestone sculpture has been on display at the museum since 1988, but recently started drawing attention because of its likeness to Jacko --- complete with disfigured nose. Unfortunately the bust, which was carved sometime between 1550 B.C. and 1050 B.C., is of a woman and MJ likely never had the chance to see the statuette. “I have no idea whether Jackson ever visited the museum,” a Field spokesperson said to the Sun-Times' Michael Sneed. “But the similarity between the limestone statue of a woman – which is about 3,000 years old --- and Jackson is astounding.” Interestingly, Jackson cast himself as an interloper in ancient Egypt in his video for “Remember the Time,” so maybe he sensed some Egyptian roots.

    That's an eerie resemblance.

    Wow!

    That would have been a good reason if it was true! If he had said "I just want to look like that Egyptian statue" the press would have been bored sooner, left him alone, and gone on to the next person.

    Too late now.

    Anyone notice the irony of the nose of the Egyptian statue being chipped off?
    Rock the fuck on!

    It's ironic that the statue is of a woman. MJ would've been thrilled.

    Creepy.

    The brain doesn't need blood. It just needs to be kept wet.

    My mom took a picture of me in to her plastic surgeon so he could make her nose look like mine.

    Maybe, just maybe, MJ took this image in.....
