Stevie Wonder Pays A Visit To Michael Jackson’s Tomb

Michael Jackson & Stevie Wonder Back In The Day......

Michael Jackson & Stevie Wonder Back In The Day......

It's hard to believe it will be a year later this month that Michael Jackson passed away. 

Longtime friend Stevie Wonder visited Michael Jackson's burial site over the weekend, according to TMZ.com and it wasn't planned.

Stevie went to visit his mother's grave and his 3 children wanted to visit Michael's resting place.

Stevie's performance and what he said at Michael's memorial service, which I was grateful to attend, still ring fresh in my memory, and it was a touching moment I will never forget.-Dr.FB

Message To The Media Regarding Paris Video

Can you all stop playing it every half hour?  That poor girl is making us all still cry. 

That was one of the most heartbreaking things I ever saw.  It is not losing it's power each time you play it.  A lot of work around offices nationwide is not getting done because we keep reaching for a tissue.  We are sure Kleenex has a great day of tissue sales yesterday but please, stop.  Sniff sniff.-Dr.FB

The Circus Continues As MJ’s Memorial Service Tickets Will Be An Online Lottery

First sign up here to be entered for tickets: http://www.staplescenter.com/memorial.php

Second, I am going to take from the press release so as there is no confusion.

Those who can't get the precious tickets – 11,000 in the Staples Center and another 6,500 to watch on big screens at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live across the street – can watch a live worldwide television feed being provided free to networks or on streaming video on the Web.

Organizers are using a wristband system to crack down on scalpers.

"This is a memorial. I'm hoping that people have dignity. We're doing our best to accommodate the worldwide demand," said Tim Leiweke, president and CEO of AEG, which owns the Staples Center. "For those who would try to take advantage of this, shame on them."

No details of the memorial were released, except that there will be no funeral procession. "It is still being developed," said Jackson family spokesman Ken Sunshine. He added: "Everything about the memorial has to do with accommodating as many fans as possible. ... It is all about the fans."

Jan Perry, a Los Angeles city councilwoman, said fans who do not get tickets "might want to consider watching this from the comfort of your own home." The ceremony will not be shown outside the venue on any of the jumbo screens.

The registration for tickets will end at 6 p.m. Saturday, when 8,750 names are drawn randomly for two tickets each to either the Staples Center or Nokia Theatre. Those getting tickets will be notified on Sunday between 11 a.m. and 8 p.m. with instructions on picking up tickets and wristbands.

3rd, TMZ is reporting you have to be a U.S. Resident.

4th, I cannot believe I am going to say this, but, good luck with the tickets.-Dr.FB

Report: AEG Will Give Away 11,000 Tickets To The Public For Michael’s Memorial Service

Not saying what is happening with the other tickets, AEG announced they will be giving away 11,000 tickets to the public.

They most likely saw that outrage of paying for a memorial service and knew it was yet more bad PR.

There will be a press conference tomorrow morning we will be covering for you.-Dr.FB
