Billboard magazine asked the 47-year-old rocker to pose naked -yes, naked- on the cover of its new "Maximum Exposure" issue...
"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," he says.
