Michael Jackson Tribute Concert Canceled
They tried to get Mary J. Blige, former druggie Natalie Cole, and woman beater Chris Brown, but they ended up with Sister Sledge, or at least a splintered version of the group. (Last time I looked, the lead singer was doing solo gigs and was ironically singing "We Are All Family" all by herself.)
