Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Note: This Sim was made back when custom content was virtually non-existent so you can probably find a better version of MJ somewhere. Run along, grasshopper.

Hopefully this man needs no introduction. It's the King of Pop himself, Michael Jackson. Although lately he's known more for his personal troubles and legal battles, it's hard to deny that he had a large impact in music and pop culture. Plus, I'm sure he'll make a very interesting addition to your game. Wouldn't you just love to have Michael Jackson roaming around your neighbourhood? Although he's gone now, maybe he can live on in your virtual world.

The many faces of Michael Jackson! His jaw doesn't look so wide in those pictures but I think it's just the angle; he looks quite dashing in CAS. For maximum hilarity, play him with these traits: Virtuoso, Family-Oriented, Childish, Insane and Party Animal. I had to include Party Animal in there to get the Rock Star lifetime wish.

Have fun! Here he is at Riverview cooing over a child.

  • This Sim requires a slider hack!
  • Do not claim as your own and/or upload to the Exchange.
  • I do not take requests. The sliders you see in your game are basically all I use, so if you really really want Mr. Emo Boy From Obscure Band in your game, you're just as capable of creating him yourself.

  • Extract the .sim file from the rar. Place in My Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\SavedSims. Look for him in the premade sim bin in Create a Sim under the Adult category.

Additional Credits:
  • HystericalParoxysm for the skin replacements
  • aikea guinea for the eyes
  • Everyone who gave me feedback while he was a work in progress!

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the sim to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sim file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\SavedSims folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game, enter Create-a-Sim, and save a sim to the sim bin to create this folder, rather than doing so manually. After that you can close the game and put the .sim file in SavedSims
4. Once the .sim file is in SavedSims, you can load the game, and look for your sim in the premade sims bin in Create-a-Sim.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

I found your michael Jackson sim uploaded to the exchange by some one called uo_2272
I'm not sure if this is your sims 3 account but this prson has disobeyed your policy.
Just thought I'd let you know, if it is your account sorry to bother you.

Anyone remember what he looked like before he went all weird looking? I don't want to give my Sims night mares, so I'll have to decline downloading, but really, good job.

Originally I was gonna make 80s Michael as well, but couldn't due to the lack of appropriate hairstyles. I spent a bit of time Googling him and was amazed by how good he looked! It's a shame I was only around during his Skeletor years.

Thanks a lot for the heads up! I don't have an active Sims 3 account so that's definitely not me. I'll check out their Sim since it may just be another MJ. I've seen a few floating around (although I prefer this version! Hah)...

LOL! That screenie of him starring at the kid is hilarious. You've done a great job of creating a sims version of MJ.

Princess Leia I'm UO_2272 on the exchange. My Michael Jackson on the Sims exchange is my own unique version. I think it's close, but honestly inferior to yours. I'm humbled by work.

centerman: yup, I checked out your Sim and figured they're not the same. No worries. I think yours is fine; you just have to make the eyes and nose smaller.

Just because you CAN, doesn't mean you SHOULD. Aieeeeeeeee!

Awesome work. Too awesome...this dude would freak me out. Even if I had the necessary CC to properly install him, I just can't. Paris is scaring me enough already. Though really--your Sim is way more human looking than the real deal, sad to say.

Michael was REALLY gorgeous way back, once upon a time. He had beautiful brown skin, nice natural nose and even the second nose-job looked almost natural enough. Everyone wishes he would have stopped right then and there. Nobody could have seen what he'd do to that beautiful face and if you would have told us what was coming down the road, we wouldn't have believed it back then. Not at first, anyway.

The first time I heard/saw him, I was 13 years old and walking down the aisle of a Montgomery Ward dept. store (now extinct) and had wandered into a special display set up showing Thriller on a repeating loop. I'd never seen a music video before and I'd never even heard true multi-directional sound separation before. All I knew is I was surrounded by speakers and sound, where prior I'd only ever heard music out of a transistor radio's tinny speakers or my parents wood furniture-esque stereo. I was mesmerized--and not just by the technology, but by the content--that was one helluva video and Michael was incredible at what he did. What an introduction to the music video era! It was a magical moment I remember 30 years later.

I find it impossible to wrap my mind around the fact that that handsome man and THIS thing are the same person. I feel like MJ, the King of Pop, died long ago, and THIS thing that calls itself Michael Jackson is really one of the monsters from the Triller video taking over.
Bowties are cool.

Incredible job on creating the likeness... now you just need a Macaulay Culkin child Sim to make the creepiness complete. I don't normally include many real life celebrities into my Sims games but this is tempting me and scaring me at the same time.
