    Kill MJ? - Their best PR person at the time?

    That would make no sense at all. He was the biggest star they had in their commercials...

    The 1984 Pepsi accident did change him and in a very negative way.

    The 1984 Pepsi accident was actually the starting point of his use of drugs (prescription painkillers initially, and later more powerful drugs) in order to treat the intense pains of the burn injuries on his scalp.

    It is important to note that although his personal doctor Dr. Steven Hoefflin advised him, right after that accident, against the use of those drugs (for the pain of his burn injuries on his scalp) because he knew as a doctor that this would evolve into an destructive addiction for him, yet Michael Jackson did not listen to him at all.

    Michael Jackson continued increasing the drugs’ dosages but also he started taking other, more powerful drugs as well in the following years.

    Doctors and enablers around him were more than happy to provide him the drugs that he was asking for.

    The 1984 Pepsi accident led to a vicious circle because he had also to have reconstruction surgeries on his scalp on that burned area, which in turn caused to him additional pains, and thus taking even more drugs to ease these pains from those extra scalp surgeries (see, for example, his 1993 Neverland statement).

    Also, the fact that he had been taking drugs (for his scalp pains), this made the transition easier to other, more powerful drugs (such as, Demerol) when he wanted to battle the additional anxiety and emotional distress of the allegations against him in 1993.

    To put it differently, the exponential increase of the drugs because of the allegations (in 1993) would not have been physically possible if he had not already been taking drugs for his scalp.

    Even in his very final years, the pains on his scalp continued and they were still causing to him ache and discomfort, worsening in that way even more his insomnia.

    I think it must have affected him negative in a psychological way. He was very young and the most famous man on the planet when that happened and now he had a bald spot on the middle of his head that he had to hide using hairpieces and wigs. That would make anyone self conscious, now imagine being the most recognizable person in the world..

    No doubt the accident affected him in many many ways. - And very badly.

    His prescriptionmedicin-problem started here. And it followed him (in periods) the rest of his life.

    I can see the thread has now been edited so it does not say anything about Pepsi trying to kill MJ - glad to see that, since that seems like nonsens and conspiracy theory IMO...

    The most insecure and image conscious man in pop music.

    He has vitiligo, he has lupus and now he has a massive permanent bald spot in the middle of his head, which means he requires surgery, which leads to even more surgeries on his face because of his insecurity and in turn leads to more drugs.

    Without a shadow of a doubt, the changing point in his life. His drug use and surgeries to me, didn't seem to have gotten too bad up to around Black or White. He still looked great and was coherent when he spoke on camera.

    Wow! We need a new project to come out so we have something new to talk about. It’s not like this hasn’t been discussed a million times before.

    Definitely yes.
    The craziest fact is that it happened in the exact date in the middle of his life.
    Anyway I never understood why he remained partner with Pepsi for almost 10 more years after that. He must have been full of offers by big companies so why he stayed with those who seriously put in danger his career and life?

    Tour sponsorship keeps ticket prices low for fans whilst the artist gets their cut, regardless.

    Plus, we know why Coca Cola didn't want him and I doubt any other company out there would have sponsored his tours, put him on TV adverts to sell his music. Although, would have been funny to see Michael side shuffle in a pair of Doc Martens
