In a 1985 issue of EBONY magazine, they had a feature called "Portraits of the Stars" and used computer wizardry (and in the mid 80's, it really was wizardry. Now, your 6-year-old could probably do the same thing with some weird program they download from the Internet) to project what the stars of the 80's would look like in the year 2000.

Here's what they said about Michael Jackson, if you can't read the little tiny writing: "At 40, he will have aged gracefully and will have a handsome, more mature look. His fans will have grown tenfold by the year 2000."

What they wanted to write was, "We're pretty sure he's going to slowly turn in to Lando Calrissian from The Empire Strikes Back."
