Edd’s MANtra: MJ, Pharoah of Pop

Check out this CNN photo.

No, that’s not an old prop from the “Remember the Time” video shoot. The Field Museum in Chicago has a 3,599-year-old Egyptian limestone bust that looks mighty familiar.

Remind of you anyone?

Yep, looks like Michael Jackson to me, right down to the thin lips and jacked-up nose.

Wanna know the worst part? This is a sculpture of an Egyptian woman. Dirty Di-annnnnah!

As bizarre as this is, Michael is the only artist cool enough to have an Egyptian artifact in his likeness. That is, if you don’t count this guy:



  1. I was under the impression that Michael was slowly molding himself into his lifelong friend and confidant Elizabeth Taylor, who was famous for her role as Cleopatra in Cleopatra (1963). I was sort of thinking it was a conspiracy to immortalize Elizabeth, but obviously, well… At any rate, doesn’t surprise me that he ended up looking like an egyptian queen…
