Janet Jackson won’t take part in the tribute to her late brother, the King of Pop Michael Jackson, in Cardiff, UK, October 8th. But it’s not because she doesn’t want to: Janet has a good reason not to be there because it’s the same day that the doctor accused of Michael‘s death goes to trial in California.
Randy and Jermaine Jackson will also be absent from the event and stated that it was impossible for them to support the event in England while the criminal trial involving MJ‘s death is going on.
Dr. Conrad Murray is accused on involuntary homicide for allegedly causing MJa fatal overdose due to a very strong dosis of propofol in combination with other drugs. The official coroner’s report stated that the standards for administering the drug were not met –including a lack of necessary monitoring equipment.
Michael‘s mother, Katherine, showed her support for the tribute concert in mid-August, saying that she understands how her children feel about the loss of their brother, but as Michael‘s mother she has to be present at a tribute to her son’s life and career.
Thus far amongst the artists to be performing at MJ’s Tribute are Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Smokey Robinson, Leona Lewis, the British bandJLS, Craig David and Alien Ant Farm. Also performing will be some other brothers of the Jackson family as well as the group 3T, formed by 3 MJ’s nephews!
What do you think of Janet’s decision?
