Katherine Jackson is reaching out to all musicians, rappers, and anyone who will perform at an event called MJ Forever, a tribute concert to her late son Michael Jackson. We have a feeling by the end of it, it will be Kris Kross performing with a special appearance by Vanilla Ice.
She has reached out to Kanye West, Jay-Z, Bruno Mars, Chris Brown, Justin Bieber, Christina Aguilera, and Usher. So far, the only one to say yes is Cee Lo. Cee Lo agrees to everything though. Just ask how that Rihanna tour worked out with him dropping out due to "previous commitments" at perhaps Roscoe's Chicken & Waffles. What? He is the lady-killer, not the doc killer.
Katherine is offering first class travel arrangements and is wanting each artist to perform 1-2 Michael Jackson songs. The event is to take place October 8th yet tickets have not went on sale yet. They said they are waiting for all the names to be announced for the event.
Most of the Jackson family is against this tribute concert. Us? If we are MJ fans, we are not even booking flights or anything. This event has as good of a chance as monkey's flying out of my butt.
What do you think? Will the event take place and what do you think of the invites being made public?-Dr.FB
Diagnosis: Is This What MJ Would Have Wanted?
Last Thursday night, Janet Jackson performed at the Gibson Ampithetre and Katherine Jackson, Janet's mom, took Michael Jackson's kids to see Aunt Janet's show.
We are told that Prince Michael, Paris, and Blanket were having a good time...up until the middle of the show.
In the middle of the show, Janet does "Scream" the duet she did in the 90's with her brother. His vocals are played during the performance and on the screen behind her and the sides, was video of "Scream" which featured the kids father, Michael Jackson.
The kids were in tears and left during "Scream" and what we find interesting is that Jermaine Jackson just saw the show 4 days before as he was sitting behind us. Seems that maybe Katherine and Jermaine would have talked or even Janet letting Katherine know about MJ being shown.
The last number "Together Again" features Janet and Michael through the years. We wonder if the kids could have made it to the end of the show what would have happened.-Dr.FB
Diagnosis: Not For All Children
Here are the first promotional images of Michael Jackson Immortal by Cirque De Soleil, which was released to the media this morning.
The production is written and directed by Jamie King and will start touring in October 2011 and end up in Las Vegas before the end of 2012.
The Michael Jackson Estate and Katherine Jackson have agreed to the deal which will split the profits 50/50.
Where will the show travel? Jump with us for the tour dates!
This is some united front. Despite claims that Michael Jackson was killed by Katherine Jackson's neglect by her estranged husband and cheapskate basket-case, Joe Jackson, they arrived together in the courthouse for the hearing of Dr. Conrad Murray's license being revoked.
Even after death, Katherine is trying to do right by Michael and remain united with her dumb-ass husband Joe.
The Jackson family sometimes just not only takes the cake, but the box it came in as well.
Just once, I want to see Katherine smack some sense into Joe. I hope I am not alone in this elderly abuse wish.-Dr.FB
Man this guy is a tonto isn't he?
Joe Jackson says Katherine Jackson is the reason why her son Michael Jackson died. Joe said that he felt Michael was l"ooking kind of frail and weak looking" and asked Katherine to talk to him about. She says that she refused to break his privacy.
He says after Michael died, he told Katherine that "I said this would have never happened if you had went and been with him."
Is this his lame attempt to get money from the estate after being cut out of Michael's will?
Katherine is fed up and is getting her lawyers involved. Joe is really screwing himself. Katherine was giving Joe money out of perhaps kindness even though left out of the will. Maybe not the smartest move to do.
This just reeks of attention as the anniversary of Michael's death is looming shortly. Le sigh.-Dr.FB
This Saturday, Michael Jackson's children, Prince Michael, 12, and Paris, 11, will accept the Lifetime Achievement Grammy for their late father. Blanket, 7, is not expected to appear, but the Jackson family says that could change.
The award ceremony will be taped on Saturday at the Special Merit Awards ceremony and footage of it may be included in the planned tribute to Michael Jackson in Sunday's Grammy show.
According to CNN, the children's appearance came about because Michael's mother, Katherine Jackson, complained to Grammy producers that no Jackson family members had been invited to the ceremony. Whoops.
Joe Jackson has said he will not attend the ceremony or Sunday's Grammy show due to his anger over how the behind the scenes talks went down regarding Jackson family attendance. Joe always seems to be about Joe though, so it's hard to say what is fact and fiction here. Katherine Jackson, Michael's mother, will attend.
What do you guys think? Excited to see Michael's kids step up for their Dad or do you think they're being exploited? -Dr.FB
Paris Jackson and Prince Michael III along with "Blanket" were spotted at the Palms Hotel & Casino, having fun by the pool. They were there with Katherine Jackson.
Several photos have leaked of Paris shopping and other things but for now, I have decided not to get the photos.
Jermaine Jackson was in Vegas well, attending the Depeche Mode concert at the Pearl Theatre in Vegas. Wonder when Depeche sang "It's No Good", if it was directed to Jermaine's tribute concerts set for later this year.-Dr.FB
FINAL UPDATE FOR DAY:
Katherine Jackson withdrew her petition to be added as executor of the estate after Michael's will from 2002 was brought in.
AEG discussed a settlement of money for the footage they sold for $60 million of MJ rehearsing at Staples before his untimely passing.
Katherine Jackson gets custody of kids while Rebbie Jackson will take care of them on the day to day. See you next court date!
UPDATE: Dr. Kline tried to insinuate that he was the father of Michael Jackson's children. Judge made Dr. Kline step up in say what he was trying to say and he backed off saying he did not know if he was the father.
Yesh. The only dr you can trust is drfunkenberry. This is a circus for sure.
We will be covering the Estate. Keep checking back here for up to the minute updates and analysis.
Right now, we can tell you we are hearing from sources that Debbie Rowe will be attending the court battle with Katherine Jackson.
Also, Katherine will be fighting the executors of the estate. It is gonna get messy and ugly, kind of like your lovers face during the act of lovemaking. And I wouldn't have it any other way.-Dr.FB
Joe & Katherine Jackson were spotted at Madeo having dinner with son Randy Jackson.
TMZcaught them and tries to talk to Joe and ask if he thought there was a conspiracy regarding Michael Jackson's death. Joe, who is never at a loss for words, whether it is promoting his new record label or making assumptions about a boy being Michael Jackson's love child (which the boy has denied) actually stayed quiet.
Guess Katherine Jackson is kryptonite to Joe Jackson talking. Hope he continues hanging with his wife then.-Dr.FB
