Year Released: 1992
Directed by: Herb Ritts
Co-directed by: Michael Jackson
Starring: Michael Jackson
Co-starring: Naomi Campbell
The song, written by Michael and Teddy Riley, talked about keeping
a relationship between Michael and a woman secret (the secret
is referred to as “keep it in the closet).
Some believe the video, co-starring model Naomi Campbell was
made to silence rumors questioning Michael’s sexuality.
In the video, Campbell continually attempts to seduce Michael,
whose vocals on the video are kept low with few hints of his falsetto.
Little known fact: The song’s female vocalist
was Princess Stephanie of Monaco.
