The King of Castrato
Those who love Michael Jackson’s music might describe the singer’s voice as otherworldly. But as it turns out, Jackson’s voice may have been as natural as you might expect. The conspiracy here claims that Jackson was intentionally castrated at a young age so that he could maintain his high notes for his adult life.
This barbaric approach to rearing successful high-pitched male singers is not a new idea. In fact, throughout history, there have been many young singers who were castrated to maintain that type of vocal register. As of now, we don’t fully know if that’s what happened to Jackson, and at this point, we will likely never find out.
