Starring: Michael Jackson
One of Jackson’s most sexually charged videos, Dirty Diana
is the story of a groupie who propositions Jackson. Producer Quincy
Jones confirmed this information to put to rest rumors that the
song was about Diana Ross, Jackson’s mentor.
Jackson plays up the sexual image on this video by singing with
his shirt open and making some signature moves that whip the audience
into a frenzy. At the end of the video, Jackson is shown leaving
a back stage door only to find a beautiful woman in his limousine.
Little known fact: Dirty Diana also features
the talents of guitarist Steve Stevens.
Little known fact 2: When Princess Diana attended
one of teh Bad Wembley concerts in London 1988 Michael dropped
the song from the set list out of respect. Princess Diana actually
would have prefered to have seen it but it was to late to put
back in the show.
