Prince and Michael Jackson - BAD

I recently discovered that Michael Jackons "Bad" was originally intended to be a duet with Prince.

Prince turned the duet down because he felt it the song would have be a hit without his contribution and also due to the fact he wasn't keen on the "your butt is mine" lyric. lol.

"Bad" is a great song but do you think Prince would of made it a masterpiece?

Richard Simmons was called to help him get into shape so he can stand on the 02 stage soon to break the record for the most consecutive nights without playing a single instrument

Bad is NOT a great song, actually is really cheesy and calculated.

It was talked about in DMSR, Prince thought it was a great idea, but felt it wasn't balanced. In return, he submitted "Wouldn't U Love To Love Me" for Michael's album. It was also said that he may have suggested It's Gonna Be A Beautiful Night or Hot Thing to be a duet with Michael
