As asexual as people perceived him to be, Michael Jackson sure was a Casanova when it came to his music videos. Truthfully, everyone forgets how hot MJ's female leads were. Everyone, that is, except for us.
The King of Pop kept a roster of sexy ladies on deck that rival those in any of today's rap videos, so we couldn't help but dig into the archives in his honor. Join us as we take a look back at MJ's 8 Hottest Female Leads...
