Jackson Tribute Postponed: Talent Scheduling “Conflicts”


The Michael Jackson tribute show has been moved from Vienna to London – and postponed until next June due to too many performer’s “scheduling conflicts.”

Let’s bring out the Hollywood dictionary for this one. “Scheduling Conflict” loosely means “I’m shampooing my hair that night.” It’s the answer Madonna gives when she sees the rough cut for one her movies and she’s asked to do press.

But back to Michael. Jermaine Jackson and organizer Georg Kinde said that numerous artists couldn’t make the event, including Mary J. Blige, Natalie Cole, and Chris Brown.

Chris Brown? When Chris Brown can’t make your party, isn’t that a celebration?

Explained Jermaine:

The purpose for this show is to give something back to the fans … we have to do this right.

Referring to superstars like Madonna, who lost their request for participation in the mail:

It’s not about name-dropping.

The event had originally been scheduled for September 16th in Vienna. It is now tentatively scheduled for early June 2010 at London’ Wembley Stadium.
