    I've just been staring at this for 15mins straight... :shock: I didn't immediately recognize it as Michael, the real Michael - I thought it was either a painting or PSed. Could be because of the angles the pictures were taken in but.. something definitely looks off and it also doesn't look like it was '87, at all..
    Either way, I don't think Greg would publish a 'fake', so I guess it really is him, but it just looks kinda odd.. I can't wait to get a decent scan of it!! Can't believe Michael did a shoot like this back then.. damn! :wild:

    Let's not forget this is taken through a glass and from an angle. Maybe that plays a part in why it looks "odd".

    I thought 88/89 at first-but thinking about the Dirty Diana shoot and then looking at the picture just posted, made me think they were doing that, and then decided to do this suddenly.

    If I saw the actual photo I reckon I would absolutely know if it was Michael. Something does look off in these shots...

    Finally some good news hey! I first thought it would be a photoshopped one too when I spotted the title but GOOD Lord :wild:
    Thx for posting this awesome piccie and I am not surprised nor shocked about it. Michael loved art and its a beautiful decent thoughtful pose.
    Think, I stopped breathing for awhile there just staring at my screen. Would love to have that one on my wall though. Very artistic!

    His ears don't look like Michael's IMO, the whole picture strikes me as a odd but if it's really him, I'd love to see footage of it to be 100% sure.

    DD came out in April 1988. But MJ then was on tour since February. So the video must have been shot early 1988 or maybe late 1987. If this photo was made then too then the 1987 date isn't that far off.

    BTW, Gorman is a renowned photographer. I doubt he would risk his professional reputation by faking photos: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greg_Gorman

    That picture is 100% Michael. I even looked pictures up for comparison of the legs. I don't question it's realness. A good photographer knows how to use lighting properly. That might be why it looks like a painting, when it's not a painting.

    Now it's clear why he was so cool about La Toya with her Playboy photoshoot

    If it had been released on his lifetime, I wouldn't have doubts but watching footage would give me more certainty it's Michael.

    here's another one where you can see his face a little better


    I'm pretty sure it's just the combination of lighting (in the actual photo), the angled shots and reflection that make it look different. I don't doubt it's Michael tho, there's no reason to question Greg's integrity like that imo. I'm still surprised about it being '87, I guess it's the hair... But man, what a gorgeous picture!

    not for that reason, but yeah... I'd love to see footage too :shifty:
