Bret Michaels: "I thought spandex tucked into cowboy boots was a style that would never go away"
Why is Bret Michaels at the center of the pop culture universe? Because, according to those who know him and follow him, he might be the nicest, hardest-working celebrity out there. And those are two things we rarely see in celebrities these days.
"The greatest thing Bret Michaels ever said to me was, 'Martha, I thought spandex tucked into cowboy boots was a style that would never go away,'?" says Martha Quinn, one of the original "VJs" of MTV, where Poison's music videos were standard fare in the '80s. "This is so typical of our Mr. Michaels. Self-effacing yet cool to the edge of his bandana."
