It was written and composed by Michael himself, while co-produced by Quincy Jones and the singer. Speaking of which, after Michael clarified that the song was not about Lady Diana as the title implies. “I wrote a song called ‘Dirty Diana’. It wasn’t about Lady Diana. It was about certain types of girls who hang out in concerts or clubs, you know, they call them groupies. I’ve lived with that all my life. These girls… they do everything with the band, everything you can think of. So I wrote a song called ‘Dirty Diana’. But I got it out of the [Wembley] show in honor of Her Royal Highness,” states his website, michaeljackson.com.
