Michael Jackson Cirque du Soleil deal may lead to reality show

By Roger Friedman

Michael Jackson’s estate has made a deal with Cirque du Soleil, much as I predicted on November 11, 2009.

    I’d rather see an ode to the greatest recording artist of all time, rather than a tribute to the most shameless gold-digger of all time, any day of the week. I think they should take both of these shows to Vegas and have them duke it out in theaters across the street from each other. I’d be willing to bet that the King of Pop is a bigger draw than that all-time gold-digger Anna Nicole.
