Don't crop till you get enough ... Jacko in what experts claim is wig

EXPERTS yesterday claimed to have spotted the bald truth about Michael Jackson — he wears a WIG.

Wacko Jacko’s mad dash to court in his pyjamas is said to have let the cat out of the bag on his syrup.

Photos of the star’s bonce appeared to show a mesh cap with false hair sewn in.

Top British hairdresser Feleny Georghiou — whose clients include Victoria Beckham and the Duchess of York — declared: “It is definitely a wig ... and one of the worst I have ever seen.”

Feleny, who works at swanky North London salon Connect, explained: “The big giveaway is at the top of the forehead where you can quite clearly see where the hair has been sewn in.

“When he turned up in court from his hospital bed on Thursday his hair was just too perfect to be his own.

“It was pristine. Only hair from a wig falls in that way.”

Hair experts in the US — where Jacko, 46, is on trial accused of child abuse — agreed with her.

Top stylist Yolanda Perez, 42, said: “It is absolutely a wig.”

Fellow New York crimper Mario Carrasco said: “It’s possible he might have hair.

“But these are pieces — hair extensions. The wind was blowing, and his hair was moving, but just the outer layer. Human hair would open up and fly all over the place.”

Wig consultant Alexis Rodriguez, 34, said Jacko appeared to have shelled out hundreds of pounds on what she described as a “lace-front wig with a microfilament cap”.

Jacko normally gets up at 4.30am to get ready for court — but on Thursday he was in a tearing hurry after being treated for an injured back.

He was an hour late arriving for his trial and was threatened with jail.

US TV reporter Diane Dimond said: “He looked worse than I’ve ever seen him.”

not only that, but where's his scalp? Most normal humans regardless of race have a scalp that can be seen through their hair....

JACKSON’S pals fear the pressures of the trial may cause him to kill himself. Sources close to the singer said his back problem was really a symptom of his fragile mental state.

Wigged out or not, he will not off himself. He might make a gesture like take some pills and wash it down with alcohol while phoning several friends and family, but he will not kill himself.

Why? Because women attempt suicide about 10X more often than men, but men succed more/attempt. Men shoot themselves or sit in a running car in their garage. Women make the gesture. And he ain't a guy.

Great point! Even if he WERE a guy, he ain't a grown-up one.

I wondered if I'd be the only one that thought that.

Of course, he actually looks there like he might be a man (even with the makeup) and I don't think that's the look he's going for.

I've thought this was a wig for as long as we've seen the comings and goings into this court case. It's just too perfectly straight and full to be his own.

I think it started to be a wig right after "Bad" came out. Look at him then and now.

To legal eagles out there: is it normal for a judge to allow the defendant in a criminal trial to appear in the courtroom in disguise---wig, makeup? Also---how about pajamas? Judge Judy throws women out for midriff-baring tanks. I am sure she would not allow pj's.

Thanks..

You're welcome  :-)

if you look carefully at the brow line..you can see what the person was taking about..

I have no doubt that it's either completely or partially fake, especially considering that the rest of 'his' face (and who knows what else 'shudder') is fake as well....it would fit the pattern of behavior for him to do that. 

I'm no hair expert (you can see this from my scruffy appearance in my FR homepage pic ) and so I really don't know what I'm looking at.  Quite frankly, I'm averse to examining 'his' pictures very carefully, as they evoke in me a particular revulsion....not quite as much, but almost as much as in this sort of picture:

I read this whole thread, hoping to get an explanation of the following:

Photos of the star’s bonce appeared to show a mesh cap with false hair sewn in.

What the heck does this mean?

Hello Dianna, I'm very happy that you read the entire thread but am saddened that you remain unfulfilled.

One of the reasons why I love to read The Sun is because I enjoy studying our English language and it's many variations, colloquialisms and dialects that exist within our own country as well as that in English-speaking cultures elsewhere.  Great Britain has a version of English all it's own (our British Friends may argue that theirs is the 'correct' version and ours is the 'damaged' one) and I'm sure that you're familiar with some of the spelling variations such as spelling 'color' as 'colour'.  The United Kingdom also has a proud and ancient tradition of slang, and The Sun enthusiastically uses these expressions at what seems every possible opportunity.  To my eyes and ears it makes for quite a captivating read, as it's a reminder of where the story is coming from, who it's being written for, and it also serves to educate me more fully on some of the more subtle aspects of British language, and therefore, culture.  In fact, within Great Britain, there are numerous dialects as well, much as here in the USA most of us can spot a Southern Drawl, a Maine or Massachusetts accent and of course the several accents within New York such as the Brooklyn and Bronx; as well as others elsewhere.

When confronted with unknown British slang expressions, there are numerous resources on the web that provide British Slang dictionaries, histories of British slang, usage suggestions and their various etymologies.  An easy thing to do is to just Google with search keywords such as "British Slang Dictionary".  I did that and here's what I came up with:

 

A dictionary of slang - S - Slang and colloquialisms of the UK.

syrup Noun. A wig. Abb. of the rhyming slang Syrup of Fig; making a comeback into everyday usage.

A dictionary of slang - B - Slang and colloquialisms of the UK.

bonce Noun. The head.

This may also be of some help, as it deals with the 'rhyming slang' as seen in 'syrup' above:

BBC America - Dictionary

Cockney Rhyming Slang
Perhaps the most infamous of all the British slang, Cockney Rhyming Slang is a richly complicated, in-the-know type of language. It is said that slang was originally developed by the thieves of London, so that they could communicate without the bobbies understanding what they were saying.

And they were most definitely successful. With the familiar words showing up in unlikely places in a sentence, the uninitiated can only shake their head in bewilderment.

In Cockney Rhyming Slang, a word is represented by a phrase that ends in a rhyme. For example, the word mate rhymes with china plate. So the phrase china plate represents mate. However, in spoken slang, only the beginning of the phrase would remain. So the word china means mate. Simple right?

DO be advised, however, that there are some RATHER bawdy expressions in British slang, just like in our American slang expressions, and you may run across some of these when doing these searches.

I hope that this will be of some help  :-)
