    Not the same thing. At all.

    BTW, Gorman is a renowned photographer. I doubt he would risk his professional reputation by faking photos: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greg_Gorman
    The very fact that it's Gorman told me it was real. And it's very artsy and serious like his other pix of Michael.
    It's definitely not a photoshop like some other pictures I've accidentally opened. (If you know what I mean).

    I have seen fans on FB being in denial about it saying MJ would never do something like this. I wonder if they all forgotten YANA where MJ wears even less and actually it is more provokative than this photo.

    None of that looks like him. The whole thing seems painted.

    I'm not skeptical of the picture for thinking Michael would have never done anything like that, it doesn't bother me at all and it looks vey artistic. I'm skeptical because how his ear and face )his right eye and cheekbone specially) looks, the glass makes them look odd. 'Till there is more proof, I remain doubtful.

    I think this photo may look a little 'different' because Greg Gorman's own team did Michael's hair and makeup, and all the lighting of course.
    It's beautiful! I'd like a book of these for Christmas.....
    (Edit: AND a calendar, and all the pictures can be the same .... )
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    When you say you’re a control freak, you mean?
    I like to know that every aspect of the photograph has part of my imprint in it, from the hair to the styling.

    So you also do hair and makeup?
    I don’t do any of that [laughs] but I have my team who reproduce my vision.

    yeah, same..the reason I'm skeptical is simply because, to me, it doesn't look like him that much, and it looks too much like a painting. I would not be surprised that he would do something like this at all

    I am extremely devoted to Michael Jackson

    Ugh, those fans would argue with Michael himself about what he would and wouldn't do :smilerolleyes: There's really no reason to think Michael would never do something like this - he was interested in nude photography after all - but I do believe this was something he did more for himself (not for public consumption) for purely artistic reasons. Therefore not comparable to LaToya's Playboy photoshoot at all (not that there's anything wrong with that either imo).

    I believe it's Michael without a lot of doubt but I would obviously have to see the original photograph (not behind glass) to know for 100% certainty. But damn this is doing things to my body that shouldn't be done.

    I think he would do it for artistic purposes and no I doubt he was as shy in situations like this as people think (as Respect mentioned the YANA video) Pretty sure its lighting and the angle of the shot.

    All I can really say is "Damn"....
    2nd that on the print for the wall.

    lol, this pic messed with my head. I don't know, I feel kind of like a voyeur looking at it, not that it isn't hot. I wonder why he decided to reveal this photo now?

    If you look at the other Gorman portraits of actors etc nothing looks odd about them. The question of whether they are fake or not doesn't even arise. So why does it with Michael's and with his only?

    Michael, to me, has always struck me as someone who, no matter what he does, does everything with class and a certain sense of decency when it comes to his public image and his art. I know of no example where Michael, even for and in the private sphere, ever commissioned a work of art/portrait as cheap and vulgar as the "photograph" by Gorman. Michael was shy when photographed by Annie Leibovitz where his shirt was open to his navel. I cannot image that Michael would spread his legs like that for a photographer to reval his tighty whities and simultaneaously wear those ridiculous red socks. In my opinion there is nothing artistic about this "portrait" at all, whereas his semi-nude scenes in the You Are Not Alone-video are beautiful and tastefully done.

    I believe this is a scam.
