A Man in Uniform

"My clothes should be as entertaining up on a hanger as they are on me," Jackson once told Bush. This military jacket featured on the cover of King of Style came out of Jackson's fascination with form-fitting uniforms. "And it really pleased his female fans," Bush told Rolling Stone. "Who doesn't love a man in a uniform? It was about that creating the sexual mystique. But Michael made it his own by pushing the envelope, rebelling against the establishment the uniform is supposed to represent with all those badges and making it rock & roll."
