While a CGI-rendering of Bret Michaels appears on the latest issue of Billboard (above), the real one wants you to believe it’s nothing but the byproduct of climate control, physical exercise and a good ol’ dash of manorexia. E!’s Marc Malkin reports:
I said, ‘Listen, I have two requests—good lighting and a warm room. That’s all I’m asking for,’” Michaels tells me. “If I’m walking out with it all f**king hanging out there for the world to see then, well, I need good lighting and a warm room.”
And some sit-ups! “I didn’t eat for a day and I did about 2,000 sit-ups.”
Says the man who refuses to admit his baldness, so he consistently wears a wig tucked underneath a bandana everywhere he goes. Yeah, let’s take that guy’s word on his own appearance. He seems good for it.
