It's second-hand gossip from the world of Michael Jackson, so approach with caution, but can he really have offered Prince the "chance" of a joint tour?
“There would be so much hype surrounding Wacko’s first gig it would end up turning into the Michael Jackson show.
“Prince had his own plans. He is a legend in his own right. He doesn’t need to be support for anyone.”
The worry, surely, would have been less that Jacko would have turned up and stolen the show, more that he wouldn't have shown up and led to a string of cancellations and refunds?
Anyway, once someone explained to Jackson that Prince was short, not young, he'd have lost interest anyway.
