MICHAEL JACKSON approached good friend MADONNA to write a song for him - but rejected a track the Material Girl penned because it was too "provocative".
The King Of Pop became friends with the singer in the early 1990s, and the pair often accompanied each other to events.
Jackson was keen to work professionally with his pal, but turned down a track she offered him because of its raunchy lyrics.
Madonna admits she was shocked by the rejection - because the Thriller hitmaker knew provocative songs were her signature sound.
She says, "We spent time together and became friends. It just never happened. I wrote words and presented them to him, but he didn't want to go there.
"He didn't want to be provocative. I said, 'Well, why come to me?' It's like asking Quentin Tarantino to not put any violence in his films. I felt he was too shy."

Come on, Madonna's picture

Come on, Madonna

Madonna is talking about a collaboration for "Dangerous" which was released in 1991. And Tarantino´s "Reservoir Dogs" is from 1992. Madge, please, stop inventing stories. You do it OK by yourself, but Michael never needed you for his closet and you know it.

I believe she was using that as an example not as a reference. And i also believe that their collaboration was a mutual idea that never panned out, not Madonna chasing after mj and him running for the hills.

Maybe Madonna's words were too "provocative". I don't blame MJ. As for being shy. He may have been shy to Madonna, but in MJ's own words he loved the camera.
