Prince advises Michael Jackson on how to save his career
(showbizspy.com) - Troubled pop singer Michael Jackson is now taking advice from former chart rival Prince on how he can resurrect his failing music career.The oddball singer reportedly turned to Prince, who he battled for pop supremacy in the 80s, for help with his comeback.
Prince is said to have told Michael to play a series of acoustic shows in Las Vegas to prove to the world he is still an amazing talent.
A source close to the two singers told newspaper The New York Post that "Prince has been suggesting that Michael play a sequence of unplugged concerts in Las Vegas - just Michael and the microphone. No gimmicks, no costume changes, no smoke or mirrors, just his voice."
It seems Prince has had a change of heart towards Wacky Jacky, as earlier this year, he snubbed Michael's offer of a joint tour , which would help him re-launch himself on the world stage.
Prince was said to be concerned that the hype surrounding Michael's comeback would over-shadow the actual concerts, and he wasn't prepared to be Michael's support act.
