Take a deep breath and gaze directly into the eyes of Michael Jackson: the Prince of Pop, the King of Staring Contests.

This frightening image was taken in 2005, just four years before Jackson's untimely death and was only recently obtained by TMZ. There isn't much information listed on his ID: just that he is a man and does not have any restrictions. Did Michael Jackson have perfect pitch and perfect vision? Or did he lie about wearing contacts to the DMV?

It's a stark contrast to Jackson's photo ID taken in the 1980s, which was released by the FBI just after his death in 2009. That was the photo the FBI had of Jackson on file when it was investigating allegations of child sex abuse against him.

While the image is certainly a little scary, the bigger question is: for what in the hell did Michael Jackson even need a driver's license?
