"Because there’s something about you ~baby, that makes me want to give it to you."
Naomi says she loved acting the part of this woman who’s after Michael Jackson.
“You see this man and he drives up and you want him and you’re just gonna get him. And you want him and you want him and you’re gonna do whatever you can to drive this man crazy. It’s about being sensual and like hungry and doing it.”
Michael was co-director of this video along with fashion photographer Herb Ritts.
(Herb yelling at Naomi, “Go on Naomi, touch him! Touch him!”)
Directing Naomi to be sexy was not a problem.
“I like to touch people all the time. I mean, I had to push a little bit furthur but I like to be that way.”
Naomi says she’d never met Michael before going on location in the California dessert, but she’d heard what to watch out for with him and she beat him to the punch.
“I heard Michael was a prankstar so before he played a joke on me I wanted to get him. So one day we finished shooting and I pulled out a water pistol (laughs) and laid it on him. Actually, it was tough hiding it up my skirt, because I’m not sure if you’ve seen it but my skirt is very short, so… but I got him. I hid it well.”
Naomi is now one of the world’s most sought after models but before that she was like millions of women, a Michael Jackson fan, and she says that working with him did not change that.
“To me he is a wonderful person, inside and out. He was every thing I thought he would be, or even more.”
