My Advice To Michael: Don't

Via Yahoo: Could Jacko Make Live 8 Comeback?

Michael Jackson is being lined up for a sensational comeback at next month’s Live 8 gig. The King Of Pop has been tentatively invited to appear at the Philadelphia or London gig by organisers, after he was acquitted of child abuse allegations on Monday. Live 8 promoter Harvey Goldsmith says he would consider adding him to the line-up for the July 2 event – but questioned whether he was ready to perform yet.

Jacko walked clear from court in Santa Maria looking frail, but he is still believed to want to relaunch his career as soon as possible.

Interviewed on radio station Capital FM, Goldsmith said: “Obviously we’d consider it.”

He added: “Whether it’s appropriate or not is another issue, whether he’s in a fit state to work is another issue, whether he can work is another issue and whether he can work live is another issue.”

Jacko’s close friend Stevie Wonder, who was listed as a potential character witness, is on the bill.

Jackson ought to stay out of the limelight for at least a year, maybe two. He should hire the right people to get his financial house in order and generally disappear from public view. According to Gallup, a majority believe he is a child molester, but that there wasn’t enough evidence to convict him of the specific charges brought against him. The reality is this – many don’t want to see Michael Jackson right now – AT ALL. Not on TV, not in the newspaper, not in concert.

Take a long vacation Michael. You’ll do yourself, and the greater public, a lot of good.
