Tragic News

I am reluctant to say that Michael Jackson may be signing a contract that will make him "just another attraction in Vegas." I, for one, am devistated. Although his career may have faltered a tad with the latest accusations of child molestation, I feel he is not a "B" caliber artist- He's the greatest entertainer to walk this planet. Contrary to my beliefs, he has chosen to walk the Vegas strip with such artists as Toni Braxton, Cher, etc. I have to say, becoming a recurring act for Vegas would be detrimental to his career. Afterall, Michael Jackson is known for his exclusive celebrity quality (an interview with the guy is noted as a primetime event); now anyone with a twenty dollar ticket can watch him perform- I'm pissed people!

I totally agree with can the king of pop be just another Thursday night act?? I mean with such hits as Billie Jean, Beat It, and of course Thriller, how can he be held down by a contract? What is this world coming to?!!

I have a feeling it will cost significantly more than $20 to see michael jackson in vegas.

and the image of the vegas performer is changing greatly as big-ticket acts like celine dion set up semi-permanent residency. the stigma of being a vegas performer is beginning to change.

that said, michael jackson's career is sorely in need of a revival. he's not the same artist he was 20 or 30 years ago.

The world is coming to the harsh fact that Michael Jackson is not what he used to be. I agree, he was a great performer (I haven't seen him recently so I don't know if that is still true) but there can be little argument he is the same now as he was 20 years ago. Perhaps instead of upholding his recent image as a media sideshow this may actually help his musical career.

I'm pretty sure we have to pay more than 20 dollars to see the real "moonwalk". All of his performances so far were stunning. However, I think it's nothing wrong with him having a show in Las Vegas. His career is falling apart. I heard he was in debt?
