Not too many people know, but Michael Jackson was actually a very funny guy to be around. LL Cool J recently told Arsenio Hall about a funny story dating back many years.
LL Cool J went into when they were at the studio, and LL Cool J asked Michael how they leaned like they did in the Smooth Criminal video.
Michael went into this big elaborate story about how it was done, but in the end he was just joking with him. You really gotta watch the video to get the feeling and expression it gives off from LL Cool J.
