Shhh! It's a Secret! : Mike Shinoda + Shirt = Inseperable
Never in LP history has Mike Shinoda been seen shirtless - until a few days ago, when a photo was posted of Mike and Phoenix showing off their zombie makeup for the Monster Mash festival. Once they realized that Mike's chest was bare, fans freaked out.
Unfortunately, the photo doesn't show much beyond Mike's bare shoulders, but the image was enough to spark some extreme fangirling.
There are some interesting rumors flying around about why Mike never shows his bare chest. Simple logic would be that he's just not a shirts-off kind of guy, but, of course, the fans insist it's something more than that. An underground video of Linkin Park from a few years ago includes a joke that Mike made about not having a belly button. That definitely allowed for some interesting theories, like that he's an alien or a robot. Or maybe he was born differently! Or maybe he's a mutant!
There are numerous other rumors about Mike's torso, but the reason for Mike's ever-present shirt will probably remain a secret for the rest of LP history.
But, who knows, maybe he is missing a belly button.
Shhh, it's a secret!
