Late Pop King Michael Jackson's family has announced a tribute concert to the late King of Pop to take place on October 8 in Cardiff, Wales.The four-hour show at the 75,000-capacity Millennium Stadium will be broadcast via satellite.At the Beverly Hills press conference on Monday revealing the details of the "Michael Forever" show, Jackson family matriarch Katherine was joined by sons Tito, Jackie and Marlon and daughter LaToya, siblings Jermaine, Randy, Janet Jackson.
Katherine Jackson said : "When I was told some of the names of the artists performing, I knew it would be fit for a king. If my son was here today he would feel the same way, and so I'd like to say thank you very much for helping to keep my son's legacy alive," "I will be there along with as many members of my family that can make it," Katherine said. "It is intended to be the biggest and best concert in the world for many years to come." LaToya added, "This event is far, far overdue. He was an entertainer who I feel no one can ever stand up to or hold a candle to as far as his talent is concerned. This tribute will be something spectacular and I know that he would approve."
Brothers Randy and Jermaine said : The timing of the show was inappropriate. In a statement, the two said, "While we wholeheartedly support the spirit of a tribute that honors our brother, we find it impossible to support an event that is due to take place during the criminal trial surrounding Michael's death. As everyone knows, those proceedings commence September 20."
One of the show's producers said that despite taking place in a large stadium, the event will have a more intimate atmosphere with the building's roof closed. Proceeds from the show will benefit three charities Jackson supported: the Prince's Trust, AIDS Project Los Angeles and a cancer charity. The show's lineup will be announced on August 3.

British television personality Katie Price and Peter Andre had decided to split.Katie Price was at BBC Radio One with Greg James to talk about her new book, when the radio presenter asked about her relationship with Pete. Katie replied, “I had six good years and we haven't been together for years, but people keep bringing us up.

American entertainer Britney Spears’ ex-bodyguard Fernando Flores has opened his mouth yet again. If you’ll remember, he’s the one who’s been shilling stories to The Sun ever since he left Britney’s employment after working for her from February through May last year. At first, Fernando kept things pretty believable with claims that Brit walked around naked in front of him, tried to tempt him into her bed, and refused to wear underwear in public, the latter of which was the “last straw” because Fernando got the blame for the fallout. These things weren’t exactly flattering to Britney, but they were plausible because Britney has shown herself to be quite fond of going pantless in front of the paparazzi.
Then, Fernando escalated the game by selling the story that Britney beat her sons with belts and knowingly fed them foods to which they were allergic. When Fernando finally filed his lawsuit last September, he included the above allegations as well as the claim that Britney had sex in front of her kids.Flores has now filed a new document with the court, which is rather comical in one light but also quite serious in its potential ramifications. Flores is asking for $10 million in damages due to the “psychological damage, anxiety attacks, depression and insomnia” that he suffered because Britney farted, picked her nose, and took many drugs, including methamphetamines. Really.

Super Star Shahrukh Khan's ‘D’ tattoo in his upcoming movie Don 2 has been registered for copyright protection against the name of King Khan. This is for the first time, an actor will have a tattoo design registered in his name. Merchandise like caps, T-shirts, bags and other stuff will have the same design that Khan sports on his arm in the flick.
Producer Ritesh Sidhwani says that it was a good idea to make the tattoo permanently his.“The biggest fans of the franchise are kids. Merchandise like caps, T-shirts, bags and other stuff will really be liked by them. It’s been five years since the first film. In this period, the craze for the film has just grown. We’ve realised that protecting the copyright to the tattoo design worn by Shahrukh Khan will keep the franchise alive”.
According to Farhan Akhtar, the 'D' tattoo was designed as a representation of Don’s attitude. “In a world where men tattoo the name of their beloved on their arm. We thought we should have a subliminal symbol of Don’s confidence in himself. It is definitely not permanent but I think Shahrukh really enjoyed wearing it... maybe it kept him in the character’s frame of mind”.
