Dirty Diana Lyrics

You'll never make me stay
So take your weight off of me
I know your every move
So won't you just let me be
I've been here times before
But I was to blind to see
That you seduce every man
This time you won't seduce me

She's...

    It is all about the industry of music illuminati that ofer fame and money to all artists, or people who is born with a talent that can be useful for then.

    If they accept the job they will have to follow the instruction about how to behave what to say what to sing about so that they will make the "bread and circus" in alienation of crowds.
    Dianna is Columbia- Sony the godess.
    Michael was starting to deny making what he was told to do and causing problems.

    Sorry for the bad english.I am Brazilian.

    Dirty Diana didn't have anything to do with Diana Ross or with drugs. It had to do with a guy having a girl and forgetting to call her...then a girl trying to seduce him and him telling said female that he knows better than to have anything to do with her now and just wants to be with his girl.

    to me it seems that the song speaks of a life lived many different times and experiece had not allowed him to conguer the spirit of what was seducing him in his mind. and finally victory was achieved when he gained the strength and power to over come the yielding of the body and mind to seducing agents on a spiritual level. and as I said before gain victory by being able to endure mentally what the body is put through physically to give in to seduction. The ultimate victory is you might get my body but i know you cant touch my soul. And having that victory we are left to assume by some when he ran off stage he was going out to be with her but I believe the stare down was one of victory to be able to look her back in the eyes and resist and not go home with her but home to his baby.

    The song is about the devil. Once you've done research on other songs about the devil, you will see the parallels.

    The song is about a groupie wanting to sleep with Michael so she can get money. Michael doesn't want to because he has a girl already, so he tries to call her to tell her he's alright and to unlock the door because he forgot the key. Dirty Diana then rips the phone out of his hand and tells his girl, "He's not coming back because he's sleeping with me!" This is the real interpretation of the song if you read the lyrics you would know.

    It's not about anything to do with drugs or Diana Ross?! Just read all the comments that don't have to do with these things and you'll get the true message of the song.

    I would not expect Michael to ever use the name "DIANA" without knowing it would reference DIANA ROSS. She was Michael's inspiration, especially at the beginning of his career. Did they have a falling out? Why then would he leave to her his children? I've read the lyrics, and I get the fan bit, but he was one of Diana's biggest fans! And she his!

    The song is not about a groupie or diana ross. It is about his addiction to Diazipam, which he took at the time for anxiety and to sleep. Just a coincidence, this song is sampled in Whitney Houston's Queen of the Night...a movie she did shortly before spiraling down the abyss of drug abuse....coincidence??...I think not.

    This song is a true story about a crazed superfan who wants to get with Michael for the fame and fortune.

    It's a groupie song (and what the groupie, named Diana here, would do). It's not about Diana Ross.
