Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

I did plastic surgery in 1980 and I did my eyes and I had a facelift when I was very young because Michael Jackson said to me, 'You've got to make yourself always look better.' I thought to myself, 'Oh I'll do this because Michael told me.' What an idiot I was. I'm telling people be who you are, you do not need to do plastic surgery, it's the stupidest thing in the world.
