Steven Hoefflin , who performed Jackson's second rhinoplasty and subsequent operations. The album helped Jackson transition from the bubblegum pop of his youth to the more complex sounds he would create as an adult. Off the Wall was the first solo album to generate four top 10 hits in the United States: Thriller and Motown Yesterday, Today, Forever More success came with Jackson's sixth album, Thriller , released in late The album earned Jackson seven more Grammys and eight American Music Awards, including the Award of Merit, the youngest artist to win it.

Randy Taraborrelli writes that "Thriller stopped selling like a leisure item—like a magazine, a toy, tickets to a hit movie—and started selling like a household staple. A one-man rescue team for the music business. A songwriter who sets the beat for a decade. A dancer with the fanciest feet on the street. A singer who cuts across all boundaries of taste and style and color too". The show aired on May 16, , to an estimated audience of 47 million, and featured the Jacksons and other Motown stars.
How does he do it? As a technician, he is a great illusionist, a genuine mime. His ability to keep one leg straight as he glides while the other bends and seems to walk requires perfect timing. The first Pepsi Cola campaign, which ran in the United States from to and launched its iconic "New Generation" theme, included tour sponsorship, public relations events, and in-store displays. Jackson, who was involved in creating the advertisement, suggested using his song "Billie Jean" as its jingle with revised lyrics.
During a simulated concert before a full house of fans, pyrotechnics accidentally set Jackson's hair on fire, causing second-degree burns to his scalp. Jackson underwent treatment to hide the scars and had his third rhinoplasty shortly thereafter.
The second campaign had a global reach of more than 20 countries and would provide financial support for Jackson's Bad album and —88 world tour. Jackson donated the use of "Beat It" for the campaign's public service announcements. It was the last tour he would do with his brothers. The project's creators received two special AMA honors: Jackson, Jones, and entertainment promoter Ken Kragan received special awards for their roles in the song's creation.
Jackson's early acquisitions of music catalogs and song copyrights such as the Sly Stone collection included "Everyday People" , Len Barry 's " " , and Dion DiMucci 's " The Wanderer " and " Runaround Sue " ; however, his most significant purchase came in , when he acquired the publishing rights to ATV Music Publishing after months of negotiation.

The change gained widespread media coverage, including rumors that he might have been bleaching his skin.
Randy Taraborrelli's biography, Jackson was diagnosed with vitiligo in ; vitiligo results in white patches on the skin. Although Jackson was diagnosed with vitiligo, Taraborrelli stated that Jackson had been skin bleaching. He said that Jackson was diagnosed with lupus , and that while the vitiligo partially lightened Jackson's skin, the lupus was in remission. Both illnesses made Jackson's skin sensitive to sunlight. The treatments Jackson used for his condition further lightened his skin, and, with the application of pancake makeup to even out blotches he could appear pale.
He said of his vitiligo: When people make up stories that I don't want to be who I am, it hurts me. It's a problem for me. I can't control it. He lost weight in the early s because of a change in diet and a desire for "a dancer's body". Periods of weight loss would become a recurring problem later in life.
Arnold Klein , and Klein's nurse Debbie Rowe. Rowe eventually became Jackson's second wife and the mother of his two eldest children. He also relied heavily on Klein for medical and business advice.
