    Is this concert still going on…Michael Jackson stans are going to kill some people.

  2. TIMMI August 26, 2011


    Just wondering, why would MJ stans be mad about a range of amazing artists showing their respect for MJ and his legacy? MJ inspired these people and it is their way of thanking him for his influence on their careers.

    Without him, I’m almost certain some of them wouldn’t be where they are today.



    WHY NEYO??????????????
    HE SUCKS ASS!!!!!!!!!!!!

    @ TIMMI

    A bunch of Michael Jackson fans are against the Tribute concert and they even started a facebook page titled “Fans Against Michael Jackson Tribute”. An open letter was sent to Katherine (Michael’s mother) urging her to cancel the concert. Some of the reasons given include:

    1. They believe the concert is doomed to fail due to
    a. horrible ticket pricing
    b. a no guarantee policy on the artists scheduled to perform
    c. the fact that the concert coincides with Dr. Murray’s manslaughter trial

    2. Gene Simmons (a member of Kiss) had some not so nice things to say about Michael during his molestation trial…and his band (Kiss) was initially included in the line-up

    and a bunch of other reasons.

    Neyo is very talented but he is an mj clone.. so no suprise hes gna be on there.. and they better throw chris brown on there too before he has a tantrum on twitter again

  11. mobwife August 26, 2011

    Damn, this show is getting more and more BOOTLEG by the second! Other than Xtina, Beyonce on SKYPE (Why isn’t she flying in the perform?), Cee Lo, and now Ne-yo (who gives a good live performance) why would anyone watch this? This makes me a little sad. I wish they organized this better. MJ deserves better than a half-a** put together tribute!

  12. Malibu Barbie August 26, 2011

    @MOBWIFE you should not be suprised

  13. Veevy August 26, 2011

    @malibu barbie Chris brown was offered a slot to perform but he declined due to his fame tour #GetYourFactsRight

  14. mobwife August 26, 2011

    @Malibu Barbie

    LOL…..stop it! 🙂 Chris was one of the 1st asked to perform but he will be in concert on October 8! I am hoping he SKYPES in from his concert, similar to what Beyonce did for the BET Awards this yr. I still don’t understand why Beyonce wont physically be attending the tribute?

  15. mobwife August 26, 2011

    No they don’t need Britney, or Lady Gaga! I don’t want Rihanna to further ruin what is shaping up to be a hot mess of a show but, her appearence would make more since then Xtina, Gaga or Brintey!! IMO

  16. NE-YO*STAN August 26, 2011

    Y’all always use the same damn Ne-Yo picture! I’m sure he’s taken better ones over the years.

  17. Anna V for Vendetta August 26, 2011

    Nah… This Tribute concert is visibly a ripoff under the guise of charity. The Estate might shut it down after all, as they should do! It’s open season on Michael Jackson and that’s gotta stop!! Even a tick stop feeding off you when you’re dead !! The Estate has already squashed another Jackson Tribute Ripoff like a bug last month… The Jackson Tribute Fragrances by Frenchman Julian Rouas and Joe Jackson…

  18. to cancel the tibute or not to cancel the tribute? August 26, 2011

    Maybe they should just cancel this tribute thing?

    Christina Aguilera is like the only vocalist that matters in the list of performers. With her strong, loud, raspy voice, Christina would sound absolutely amazing singing pretty much any of Micheal’s songs! Christina is THE BEST I’d watch the show just for her performance alone.

    However, I was hoping other fellow EPIC singers would join Christina… like, I don’t know… Mariah? Celine Dion? Whitney, if she’s feeling okay? Lara Fabian? Maybe even Adele? Or Justin Timberlake? Not of fan of Timberlake, but he used to say how big of a Michael Jackson fan he was. Oh well.

    I agree that they should cancel as well. The lineup is alright, but we need people that were making music and singing in the 80’s and early 90’s, like perhaps Celine Dion, Patti Labelle, Prince, Mary J Blige. And for newer artists, Usher, Bey, Christina and maybe a few others. But Neyo, JLS are not good at all. And where will Bey be on this date that she can’t be there?? I checked for festivals and stuff, but there’s nothing to be found. I just feel like this tribute would be a mess, so should be cancelled.

    For all you people who have commented on this must live under a rock. Beyonce will be 6/7 months pregnant so she won’t be able to fly!

  22. Sarah~Louise Giddings September 7, 2011

    I think its amazing that NeYo will be there he perfects the legacy! MJ will smile down from heaven at the appreciation and rememberance!

  23. 100% True September 19, 2011

    Well id Beyonce is 7-8 months pregnant perhaps she shouldn’t be singing as well. If she so say MJ is her idol & influence, she needs to deliver a proper show=> SKYPE IS SILLY & SHES BEEN GETTING A WAS WITH SH* T LIKE THAT.

    Chris is really busy and his schedule is tight BUT usher my be free.

    I agree 100% with @NICE_GURL: they should get people that really know him at least hot guys from the 90s not JLS or what ever freaks they are assembling right now. MJ wouldn’t get involved with gigs like that when he was alive, why are they offering it to him after he is dead.

    This isnt about MJ, its about making money off him still. They should try and make money off a dead man. & what do they want JLS & rIHANNA THERE FOR?
