It's Michael Jackson vs Prince All Over Again

It has been 25 years since the rivalry for pop supremacy raged between Prince and Michael Jackson. Back then, Michael crushed with "Thriller" and Prince threatened with "Purple Rain." Now the competition seems to be heating up between these couple of 50 year olds. Not since Elvis Presley vs the Beatles has a rivalry been this hot.

Prince did 21 shows at London's O2 and now Michael has sold out 50 shows and will book more. According to Michael Jackson's official web site:

"750,000 fans have bought tickets to see the undisputed King Of Pop live at the O2 Arena in days of frantic fan frenzy and saturated media coverage around the globe.The amazing news of Michael Jackson's return to the stage caused tickets to sell at an average rate of 40,000 an hour, over 650 tickets per minute - an astonishing 11 per second!"
Prince has a new CD getting ready to drop, the double album "LOtUSFLOW3R," a collection of psychedelic rock songs, "MPLSoUND," featuring an electronic sound. Michael Jackson is offering his Visionary Boxset, which showcases his finest video singles on 20 Dual Discs housed in a beautiful case, and is one incredible collectible item.

We bet Prince will tour soon. Michael is touring for the next three years (maybe). Will their paths ever cross? Will they ever work on a project together (we doubt it - - two huge egos). Do we even want them to perform together? Probably not at this point. Remember when Bowie and Jagger did a video together. And we love Bowie and Jagger. Stay tuned.
