Throwback Monday

                                                When we talk about Michael Jackson, we mention all of his great videos like Remember the Time, Thriller, Beat It, Bad, etc.
However, why don't we talk more about In the Closet off of the Dangerous album?
This uber sexy video was directed by Herb Ritts and stars supermodel, Naomi Campbell, has MJ's love interest.I was first introduced to it when I was like 7 years old, and I didn't understand wtf was going on. But as an adult, I totally appreciate it!
They bump & grind along along, what looks like a ranch or Mission, in Salton Sea, CA and the cinematography is gorgeous! This video ended up being banned in South Africa for its highly sexual content.
The song is great too and features Princess Stephanie of Monaco (say what? yup!). That part was kept a secret for a while. Homegirl did try her hand at music, but just didn't work. Allegedly, Madonna was supposed to do the female vocals, but Jackson passed on it.
So, let's take this Monday to appreciate this video.
