Entertainment columnist Bill Vaughan offers this tantalizing item on his Tasty Clips site:
“Tasty Clips hears that the music royalty that is PRINCE and MICHAEL JACKSON are about to kiss and make up. The differences began back in 1987 when the idea to make “Bad” a duet was nixed by his purple highness. Producer Quincy Jones has said that it was because Prince thought that the song would be a hit whether he was in it or not, but later reports surfaced that he scoffed at the concept of getting the beat down from Michael. Now the two may make sweet music due to the efforts of Will.I.Am who has made it his mission. The Black Eyed Peas frontman, who is serving as producer of Michael’s comeback album, got them together last week at Prince’s 3121 Club in Las Vegas. A Dallas Austin composition may be selected for the monumental pairing. However, a best bet seems to be a song from The Beatles catalog that Michael is a co-owner of. This rumor is supported by the number of Fab Four covers Prince has been dusting off at his club gigs. Be on the lookout for a major announcement after he leaves Vegas on March 31.”
Prince & Michael… it had to happen, and I hope it does, and it better live up to the notion.
I told y’all here that I saw will.i.am get on stage during one of Prince’s 3121 shows. So it all sounds credible to me.
Heck, I’d be satisfied just hearing Prince rock a few Beatles tunes.
So... I guess Prince’s weekend gigs in Vegas will come to an end on March 31? Aw shoot… I might have to hit that one more time…
