    Now this should be a tribute fitting of his talent only she can do it right and respectfully

  • scott

    I’m looking forward to it. She wasn’t the most talented Jackson, maybe not even the second most talented. But she’s always been the most likeable. I always thought of her personality as similar to Michael’s. She has all of his goodness. It should be a very moving tribute.

      Janet was the only one who tried to get him into rehab. She has a good heart.

    • Greg

      That was a sideways stab with some niceness thrown in…but ok

      “She wasn’t the most talented Jackson…?” Please! Janet is super talented, but a comment like that is not even relevant to this situation. Why put negativity in an already bad situation. Those people are human man. Show some class.

        Michael was not human. Take it however you want.

    I agree Enough.The King of pop isnt Alive anymore.But Janet Jackson is Honoring her Brother Michael.Thats more like it.Than the Tribute concert on sept 26.

    Thank you Janet! I have always thought that only Janet could do Michael’s solo career music the proper justice. Her voice is so similar to his. She adored him and will bring that house down with her performance. I can hardly wait! I certainly will be able to put all this to rest once I see her tribute.

    I will be bawling! Just when I think I’ve got it in check! It almost makes me not want to watch for fear of losing it again like I did at the Memorial. Then I cried myself to sleep. And I know this is EW and there is not much sympathy for emotions outside of watching Saving Private Ryan,but I just miss Mike.

    • Vanessa

      awwww…I couldn’t have said it better myself!!!!! I will be overly emotional too. Just thinking about Michael and how awesomely wonderful and completely irreplacable he was, and I nearly lose it! I don’t know if I can go watch “This Is It” for the fear that I’ll pass out in the theatre. Michael…I just can’t stop loving YOU!

    This is fitting since Michael Jackson and MTV was a dynamite relationship. Michael Jackson’s music videos both launched MTV, and helped his career take-off. However, I do think that this is really an indication that MTV is increasing irrelevant to today’s younger crowd. Both Michael Jackson and Janet Jackson’s are ancient history.

      When Madonna was not yet a superstar, they had Bette Midler back then. They invited Mick Jagger and other veteran pre-MTV artists. The VMAs is not about relevance. It’s about controversy.

  • Mike

    I’am sick of Michael Jackson just let the man rest in peace and shut up about him

    • carrots

      Me too. But please explain the apostrophe between I and am.

    • Marie

      well, you could also try helping yourself a little by not voluntarily reading or clicking on articles about him or his family

    • Vanessa

      take hike mike. your viewpoint on this forum is quite irrelevant.

  • Treasure Trail

    Michael Jackson Forever!

  • Ronald

    I prefer that Madonna does the tribute although she already did that during the Sticky and Sweet Tour.

  • NewNU

    I hope she’s not fat!

    • Joe

      LOL…Sadly, she IS fat right now. She was spilling out of her dress at the funeral last week and looked like a sausage.

  • Ladyli1

    This was reported over 12 hours ago. EW, you guys are way late. But I still love ya

  • keep it real

    look i liked mike now jermaine and joe showing up opn any talk show that ask they see money only. janet has money so she straight.l respect katherine im glad she does not have control of his money why you think mike made sure of that. well ill tell you he knew she would give to his brothers cause she or them never got over he split from them.we all know they had no talent wethout him. look jackson family mike gone stop trying to make money off him i bet if we really look deep in their lives we will see mike was not the wierd one.
