The eccentric singer wrapped himself in an abaya - a traditional robe for Muslim women - on a shopping trip in Bahrain, where he has been residing since being acquitted of child sex charges.
The star's entire body was hidden by the black outfit, while a veil and sunglasses covered his face as he wandered through the streets with his youngest son, Prince Michael II.
The three-year-old tot was also wearing a headscarf covering his face.
An onlooker said:
"Jackson stood out from everyone because he was wearing sunglasses. He looked ridiculous."
Last year, 47-year-old Jackson was allegedly caught in public toilets - applying make-up.
The 'Billie Jean' singer was at a Dubai shopping mall when he was spotted powdering his nose in the communal lavatories.
Jackson, who was wearing a female Arabic headscarf, was apparently seen applying rouge to his cheeks.
Michael Jackson also decided to wear his trademark white socks and black loafers along with his sunglasses.
Please MJ, you aren't fooling anyone!
