Here's a bit of trivia: Did you know that brotha who is the leading man in the Mercedes Boy video, and was also the leading man in Janet Jackson's What Have You Done For Me Lately video (plus he's also a dancer in Janet's Nasty Boys and When I Think of You videos) is now a woman? When last seen, he was on Sally Jessy Raphael in the mid-90's and he was about to have a sex change.
His name is Rudy Houston and now goes by Lana. Some of you may also remember Rudy as the guy who strolls past Lisa Bonet in the opening credits of the first 2 years of A Different World. He walks past her while she's in a phone booth, and she drops the phone's receiver after staring at him.
