Michael Jackson's

Driver's License

Stone-Faced Stare

EXCLUSIVE

1221_2michael_jackson_driverslicense
TMZ has obtained the last driver's license photo Michael Jackson ever took -- a big change from the singer's cheery license photo from the 1980s.

The latest photo was taken in 2005 -- four years before the King of Pop's untimely death -- and you can tell from the harrowing image ... MJ had become a tortured soul.

An image of MJ's 1980s driver's license was released by the FBI shortly after Michael died -- as part of the agency's massive file on the singer. The Bureau compiled the dossier during its investigation into child sex allegations involving the singer back in the 90s.

As you can see, Michael was a much different person back then -- smiling brightly for his photo at the DMV.

Of course, it's not like MJ ever put the license to much use -- he was pretty much exclusively chauffeured around, especially in the later years of his life.

I like his nose. But serious, he was a good looking kid in the 70s and 80s, too bad he messed with his face so much.

If I had a nose like that, I would stare too and get stoned or vice versa.

I look like a tortured soul in my license. The DMV is a traumatizing experience. What's the big deal? Time to leave this guy alone and stay on Lohan while she's still alive.

No doubt DMV has slack regulations for stars.
He's not wearing a religiously mandated headcover but his hair covers two-thirds of his face.
How could he see the road?

this is sad....BTW I think the tip of his nose was affected by his Lupus. Lupus was the reason why the surgeries to fix the bald spot from his burns never healed well. ***He got tissue expanders implanted under his scalp to stretch the skin so surgeons could cut out the burned part and sew his scalp back together...HOWEVER because of his Lupus, it never healed right and made the bald spot bigger. (Dr Klein told this story on Larry King) I guess Micheal sis this a few times. Poor guy, pretty much everything that could go wrong with skin ...he had.
