What’s the secret to rocking a hard body on the cover of a magazine? According to Bret Michaels, all it takes are 2,000 sit-ups, a day of fasting, good lighting on a warm room. At least, that’s what he said went into his bestselling Billboard magazine cover. Regarding the last two items, he told E! Online:
“I said, ‘Listen, I have two requests—good lighting and a warm room. That’s all I’m asking for.’ If I’m walking out with it all f***ing hanging out there for the world to see then, well, I need good lighting and a warm room.”
Bret Michaels worries about shrinkage during his nude photo shoots? Rock stars: just like us. Meanwhile, Bret also told E! about his upcoming heart surgery that’s set to take place in January. Says Bret:
“I’m going in there thinking very positively that it’s going to be great and I’m going to feel a whole lot better. I’d be lying to say that somewhere in my subconscious there’s not a little bit of gulling. When they’re going through your body to operate on your heart, it’s going to hit you somewhere that they’re toying with the ticker. There’s definitely a little fear in there somewhere.”
