    Default Did Michael get the gold leotard for the Dangerous Tour from Madonnas Blonde Ambition tour?

    The similarities between the two costumes are quite striking. The Blonde Ambition tour was 1990 so there is every chance Michael saw Madonnas now infamous costume and thought he could do something just as provocative/sexual with the Gold Leotard for the Dangerous tour. It's something I've always wondered about given how similar both costumes are in terms of aesthetics

    Michael maybe wanted to have something provocative, but I think the design of the golden "leotard" stemmed directly from the design of a fencing suit / jacket.

    There was this Herb Ritts photo session prior to the release of the Dangerous album, where he wore one in black. And the golden one was an update of that.



    A standard one:

    Yep, it was definitely fencing suit design, he even did some fencing moves during the tour. I did fencing so I thought it was cool, even though it was a bit mixed result with those type of pants he wore, but that's MJ for you.

    I hated this growing up. I had always seen babies & my grandmother wear leotard like apparel & I loved the dangerous tour & everything about it but that leotard. It looks hell of uncomfortable & I just really wish he had the torso part tucked waiste below inside & not like superman. As a tribute artist...lol that outfit is DEFINITELY off limits for me. Imo....THIS was the worst thing he couldve ever did. Not hurt anyone, say anything wrong, skin color, none of that.....but that leotard? No!

    I LOVE this outfit. It's soooo sexy. There's something about the way he wears it that makes him look so hot and sexy in it, that makes me go wild. the way it fits his body. He's too sexy for his own good

    It's a fencing shirt. Confirmed by Michael Bush. (see video @9:10ff)

    For his Superbowl performance, that is exactly what he did... not many people noticed, but he made his outfit less controversial for that performance. He wasn't wearing the golden leotard on stage, but he was wearing it on the footage on the two jumbotron screens (at the beginning of the show). But he tugged it in, and covered the lower part with a golden band. See image.
    Also, on stage he was wearing a white round-neck T-shirt instead of the usual V-neck T-shirt, showing less skin than usual.

    I wonder if we will ever have a chance to watch that jumbotron footage (both versions). I'd be happy even if it isn't in HD.

    I was referring to those short videos with blue background, right before the MJ impersonators show up

    Wow man....i never ever payed that any attention! I guess I'm so used to seeing it that way i didn't notice. Good catch! But yeah i definitely wonder how long he danced & to what music when he was doing that footage. Maybe all he did was what we saw

    Wasn't there a short making of clip? From a news show reporting prior to the superbowl or so.

    Not that I'm aware of. I'll look for it though
