I was doing some research on the internet to try and find out where the Bad short film was shot and I came across this thread,believe it or not,on a Prince messageboard and its a huge thread dedicated to the 20th anniversary of the Bad album.

I came across some very,very interesting things about the Bad album that I never even new.

The thread includes interesting info on stuff like Who Michael was going to duet with including George Michael and Barbra Streisand,What songs like Smooth Criminal and The Way You Make Me feel where going to be called,outakes,songs that never got recorded and 'Dirty Diana' is finaly revealed.

This is just a few of the things I found out whilst I was reading this,there is still so much more there then the above.

Rumours circulate that the follow up to Thriller will be a collection of Beatles songs.

This is true as there are demos of Michael trying several Beatles songs which obviously never saw the light of day.

This Original cover shot for the Bad album is later scrapped by Walter Yetnikoff President of CBS Records. It would later turn up in Michael’s book Dancing The Dream.

Mike suggested this pic for the cover because he knew it wouldnt get picked and so the cover he actually wanted would be used.

Good to read all the great replies and I dont want to put a downer on things but technically the above is not true.

Michael has said before he hated the Bad photo shoot and wasnt pleased with the cover at all because of the way he got treated.
They made him wear contacts and stuff and he just hated it.

Ive heard otherwise so I guess that happens alot with Michael but what do you mean he was treated bad? (no pun intended) Why would they make him wear contacts? The cover was shot on location of filming Bad.
