From Quiz All White on the Night
Answer: Michael Jackson
There has been much speculation regarding the real reason Michael Jackson took to wearing a single, white glove. Jackson first appeared with the sparkling glove in May, 1983, during his appearance on NBC's "Motown 25", when he performed his hit single, "Billie Jean". Over the coming months, the white glove became a regular part of Jackson's wardrobe, and, like its wearer, it too began to evolve, so much so that eventually, each glove was hand-sewn with around 1,200 crystals, a task that took up to ten days to accomplish. Moreover the following year, CBS Records threw a party in Jackson's honour, (for the 1984 Grammy Awards), and 1,500 invitations were sent out on white gloves. As for his reasons for wearing the glove, many rumours have circulated over the years, including the claim that the glove was an early attempt to cover up Jackson's vitiligo, the pigment changing skin condition that eventually spread to the rest of his body.
