Michael Jackson rejected Madonna song

Michael Jackson approached good friend Madonna to write a song for him - but rejected a track the Material Girl penned because it was too 'provocative'.
The King Of Pop became friends with the singer in the early 1990s, and the pair often accompanied each other to events.
Jackson was keen to work professionally with his pal, but turned down a track she offered him because of its raunchy lyrics.
Madonna admits she was shocked by the rejection - because the Thriller hitmaker knew provocative songs were her signature sound.
She says, 'We spent time together and became friends. It just never happened. I wrote words and presented them to him, but he didn't want to go there.'
'He didn't want to be provocative. I said, 'Well, why come to me?' It's like asking Quentin Tarantino to not put any violence in his films. I felt he was too shy.'

tracy

the song was 'in the closet'.madonna spoke about this on a tv interview with johnathan ross in the 90's.michael picked the title for the song,& giggled when he told it madonna & asked her to write the lyrics-but he didnt like the end result.i personally think her version wouldve been much more intresting.i think he liked the idea of controversy but wasnt ready to embrace it fully.
