Michael Jackson’s Estate Reaching Out To Artists For MJ Tribute Concert

MJ Forever
MJ Forever

MJ Forever

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

Michael Jackson Tribute Song “Better On The Other Side” Hits The Web


That was quick. Very quick. A Michael Jackson tribute song has hit the web.

The song is said to feature The Game, Chris Brown, Diddy, Polow The Don, Mario Winans, Usher and Boyz II Men, produced by DJ Khalil. I say said because several of these artists were in different places in the world when this was recorded.

He led a very tortured life, his entire life, not just the past 16 years.  Who knows, maybe for him, it is "better on the other side" n I will leave it at that.-Dr.FB

UPDATE: Diddy confirmed to me via Twitter that all the artists mentioned made this tribute to MJ.
