Michael Jackson using Baby Face as the plug for Halle Berry is the all time flex!”
So what exactly happened after Michael Jackson asked Babyface to hook him up with Halle Berry?!!!!
In case you missed it…..
Teddy Riley and Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds rescheduled their Instagram Live battle on Monday night, giving us fans hit after hit and sharing stories, including Babyfaces’ try, (and fail) attempt to hook pop star Michael Jackson up with actress Halle Berry.
While the two R&B legends shared songs from their prestige catalogs they also dropped some “fun facts” behind their favorite tracks and collabs. This particular “fun fact” came after Riley’s played his hit track for SWV, “Right Here”, (a song that samples MJ’s 1982 tune “Human Nature”), Babyface recalls how the King of Pop reached out to him with the hopes he could help set up a date with Berry.
Babyface via IG Live:
“One time Michael called me….”
“Michael said, ‘Babyface!’ I said, ‘Yeah?’ He said, ‘Do you know who Halle Berry is? Do you know Halle Berry?’ I said, ‘Yeah, I know Halle Berry.’ He said, ‘Could you do me a favor? I want you to call her, ’cause I wanna take her out on a date.’ I said, ‘What?’ He said, ‘Call her — I wanna take her out on a date.’”
“So I reached out through the agent, ’cause I didn’t have Halle Berry’s number. So I called and get the message to her manager, and he said, ‘What?’ [I said,] ‘Yeah, he wants to take her out on a date.’ And then I was waiting to hear back from Halle, and I can’t tell you exactly what Halle said, but I imagine it probably would have been something like this …”
Then Babyface played a snippet of Berry’s voice from 1992’s movie “Boomerang” where she was snapping on Marcus, (Eddie Murphy’s character):
“You know, what do you know about love? What do you possibly think you know about love?”
And in true Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds style, he left things just like that. A mystery! Check out the snippet below:
So who else was today years old now finding out that MJ tried to shoot his shot and take Halle Berry out on a date and now can’t get over it???!
What’s your 2 cents?!
