In July, 1988 - just off of another #1 song, Michael Jackson headed "across the pond" to Great Britain.  He performed 8 shows to nearly a million spectators.  His autobiographical book "Moonwalk" was released to soar to the top of The New York Times Best Seller list...He wrote about his childhood, the Jackson 5, and the abuse he had suffered, and wrote about his changing facial appearance, attributing it to puberty, weight loss, a strict vegetarian diet, a change in hairstyle, and stage lighting.
