    Not really. In fact, chances are, Madonna copied Michael, rather than the other way around. The BAD Tour shirts (silver, red, black, etc.) were actually a leotard design as well, except that Michael wore them on the inside of his trousers, rather than the outside.

    Well im guessing the reason for those being leotards is that it helps the shirt to not untuck

    Wow. what a "new" MJ fact I just learn today. i guess Michael was a big fans of leotards. LOL! but i prefer his leotards inside his pants then inside out. but my guess he want it to do something different for fashion wise.

    people always follow Michael clothing style back in the day. LOL. some still do today. his fashion and outfits is and were iconic.

    Yup. It was more of a functionality thing with those Bad Tour outfits, not really counting as a leotard "design" I think.

    I only found this, but it doesn't contain a lot of footage of Michael rehearsing...

    Michael Jackson did not get the gold leotard from Madonna’s similar costume that she wore in her ‘Blond Ambition World Tour’.

    The fact that Madonna had already worn a similar costume in her tour is just coincidental.

    Michael Jackson simply liked the leather leotard that Herb Ritts suggested that he should wear in the ‘Dangerous Promo Photo Shoot’ in 1991.

    Michael Bush, his long-time personal stylist, explained it when he was asked how the idea of Michael Jackson’s gold leotard from the Dangerous Tour came about:

    We had done a photo shoot with the famous photographer Herb Ritts and it was the first one we did with leather which turned out to be a timeless photo. Later Michael said that we were taking that style and concept on tour and that's how it came about” (Michael Bush)

    Also, as far as I know, Michael Jackson was in the habit of wanting to accentuate his crotch area while performing on stage (and the gold leotard served also that purpose for him during the Dangerous Tour).

    Then I thought his costumes looked cool (except for the dangerous one) now they look cringe. Give me a classy suit with jacket like in the triumph era, he never looked better on stage than in 1980/1981
