    I never used to think hugely of this track, but it's grown on me immensely in recent years.

    i still don't get how a childlike, private, sensitive man offstage can transform into a god of blazing confidence and passion onstage. I personally never found him sexually appealing, but trying to resist him in Dirty Diana is futile. fuuuuuuuuuuuck :O

    Cant stand MJ think he was totally mucked up in the head and seriously wrong but this is one hell of a song, always loved it!

    Even MJ had to deal with hos! I've read about Elvis getting so fed up with women throwing themselves at him that he wanted true love. I wonder if that's what MJ was dealing with at the time. Sounds like it. Although, I suppose it could be about Diana Ross or have a Diana Ross spin on it.

    In one of his biographies I've read that he had a crush on her so this may be true ;)

    I heard this was about Diana Ross dissing Michael way back when, he had a thing for her. I wonder if that's true...
