Just How Tall was Michael Jackson Really?

To give someone a piece of your heart, is worth more than all the wealth in the world.

The undisputed "King of Pop", Michael Jackson is regarded as one of the most significant cultural figures of the 20th century, and not without a reason. Over a four-decade career, his contributions to music, dance, and fashion made him an icon in popular culture.

About Michael Jackson's real height

Michael Jackson was around the average height of males in the United States. In the 1980s Michael had his height listed as 5 feet 9 inches and weight at 120 lb on his driving license.

This is a surprisingly honest listing, especially from a celebrity about their height -- because you actually don't get measured for your driving license, you can usually plug in whatever number you like (within a reasonable limit, lol)

And most people, especially celebrities usually add an inch to two to their height for some unknown reason -- perhaps they like to appear bigger.

After carefully looking at him and comparing his height to that of people like Oprah Winfrey (5'6"), Mike Tyson (5'10"), Bill Clinton (6'2" in his prime), Donald Trump (6'2" in his prime), We think Michael definitely was in the 5'9" neighborhood -- in fact, right down in the middle of it. 

The real height of Michael Jackson was

5'9" or 175 cm

In a world filled with hate, we must still dare to hope. In a world filled with anger, we must still dare to comfort. In a world filled with despair, we must still dare to dream. And in a world filled with distrust, we must still dare to believe.
