Can Idol producer save Michael Jackson's career?

Michael Jackson's BadMichael Jackson needs a career comeback in a big way. According to Page Six, Idol creator Simon Fuller may be just the man who can make that happen. Or at least Wacko Jacko hopes so.

Jackson reportedly has met several times with Fuller in Las Vegas to discuss his comeback strategy. Robin Leach called it a "perfect match" with "the world's biggest pop star being looked after by the most successful mogul manager in the world."

But let's remember that not everything Fuller touches is gold. He's also the man responsible for this and this.

And Jackson is certainly going to be his greatest challenge ever. The one-time "King of Pop" is $300 million in debt and has a severe image problem due to serious child molestation charges. America may be ready to choose their pop idols from a crowd of unknowns, but I'm not sure we're ready to re-crown a fallen pop-king with such questionable sleeping habits.

Don't really care if I get a reply but was soooooo disappointed when I saw the news tonight to learn that Michael Jackson may be on the show....He's old, done and should have on a black and white striped jail uniform...or orange, whatever...Although his music was great he doesn't deserve anything...he makes my stomach turn knowing that he is a child molester...sorry, I will not contribute to his notariety or the show if he goes on...I will be done with it...

Whatever the reason; his stupidity or that of the general public, Michael might as well accept that his time as a super-star is over. He has become a joke and its pretty much impossible to come back from that. As far as his debt goes, I can't even comprehend that amount of money.

No, I wouldn't, but then I wouldn't leave my children alone with ANY person I didn't know. I wouldn't leave my kids with the pope because HE'S a STRANGER.

Seems like common sense to me...

Not saying he hasn't made bad choices, but he's far from a molester.
