Michael Jackson to get his own Vegas gig ala Celine Dion and Prince?

Michael Jackson is back in the states, and rumors have been going around heavily in the past week that he is currently in talks/negotiating to have his own long-term gig on the Vegas strip.

Thoughts?

It's where strange/eccentric stars go to die these days so it makes sense to me. Michael has already showed us he enjoys living in a fairytale land and living out of a hotel room, so Vegas would probably be a perfect fit for the guy.

Why "ew"? What's so bad about it?

I think it's the most ccurate thing that Michael could do now.
Maybe release a new album ti clear up things a little and make his show like Celine Dion and Prince are making, in a standing place.
I'm sure it'd be full everyday and it would be a good way to make Michael get out of the dark.

My "ew" is for Michael Jackson, who is just a whole lot of "ew" (albeit with a lot of great songs in his past).

I actually don't have much of an opinion on performers doing the Vegas thing. I'd love to see Prince.

It might his only viable music industry option at the moment.

I'm sure the Vegas promoters are playing with their cards close to their chest. They may only announces new shows as opening dates sell out.

i live here and actually just found out that prince is now performing on a regular basis. i'm thinking of checking it out. maybe when zoney comes to visit in february i can talk him into it.



toni braxton is another one who has her own show here, too, but i'm like coriander, i don't have an opinion on it either way. i watched them cover up the side of the hotel one day with her huge face as i stood there eating ice cream (i forget which one it was, the flamingo, maybe?) ...i love las vegas so much.

but as far as MJ goes, i'd rather he stay away. just for the simple reason that i have no interest in watching it become like the second coming or something.

i can hear it now, "the king of vegas"

no thanks.

Well, Prince might be weird, but that dude can player guitar like a motherfucker. Celine Dion makes me want to vomit. Michael Jackson is a goddamn pedophile. I hope the King of Slop fucks up hugely his first night. I wish him nothing but the worst. EW indeed!

The music industry has had few performers as brilliant as Michael Jackson.

True, but that was a long time ago. The guy has been an absolute mess for 13 years. He brought this all on to himself.

This was definitely one of the best and most accurate posts in this forum ever.
