So True So False, STSF

There's no headliner. No real sense of organization. No rights to any of Michael Jackson's songs (file that one under "oversights"). And not a whole lot of time left.

So let's just say, it wasn't the biggest shock in the world when reports surfaced this morning that the planned Jackson tribute concert, set to take place in Wales tomorrow, had been canceled.

With this family you never know, but we would assume these rehearsals will culminate in a real, live show—supposedly featuring Christina Aguilera, CeeLo Green and Leona Lewis and hosted by Jamie Foxx—Saturday night.

In the meantime, the involuntary manslaughter trial of Michael's physician, Conrad Murray, concluded its second week today, the jury spending the afternoon listening to Murray's initial interview with detectives following Jackson's death.
