The late King of Pop, Michael Jackson, has a new doppelganger
How would feel if you got to discover that there is someone out there who looks just like you? What if that person isn’t even the same gender as you but shares a striking resemblance? That was the case of a girl in Manchester, U.K.
Lorun Elisabeth is a 17-year-old college student in the aforementioned city whose selfie went viral for showing just how closely she looks like the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson.
Earlier this month, Elisabeth posted the selfie on her Twitter page, with the caption: “Blame it on the boogie.” She couldn’t have anticipated what followed next.

The teen found the reactions hilarious and agreed that she does look like the late star.
Speaking to the British news outlet, she said:
“My reaction to people saying this was always positive. I saw the funny side. I’m not one to ever be offended by something someone’s said online about me, really.
It’s quite clear that in that picture I look a lot like Michael Jackson. So, I guess people just ran with it and now I’m known as the ‘Michael Jackson girl. So many people have been retweeting it with popular Michael Jackson lyrics, which I find hilarious.”
