Those were the days… Today was a sad day but I won’t let sadness take over me, I’ll just try to keep in mind who and what Michael Jackson meant to the world.
He was The Entertainer par excellence, the one who made us all dream about and try to do his Moonwalk at least once in our lives. Words just don’t express what Moonwalking really meant to us! I’ll just let you enjoy this week’s break: Michael Jackson’s In The Closet with the oh-so-beautiful Naomi Campbell! (oh, those MJ dance moves! He was really living that rhythm!) Thank you for the great week and your beautiful comments! I wish you the best weekend yet! (more information, the making of this great video presented by Cindy Crawford and two more videos right after the jump!)
I’ll make this article more about the music and the Entertainer. And much less about the words. I will, however, remind “In The Closet” in few lines: believe or not, it was originally intended as a duet with Madonna. But she came with some lyrics to MJ and he found them to be too explicit so he canceled the project.
The female voice over belongs to Stephanie de Monaco and not to Naomi as we could be tempted to believe. She only mimicked and danced beautifully alongside Michael Jackson. He wrote the song in 1991 with Teddy Riley to shut the press from making allegations about his personal life and his intimacy. Let’s honor the musician before anything else!
