Michael Jackson’s Grave Becoming Center Of Battle


It’s not just about pretty sunflowers at Michael Jackson‘s mausoleum. If his brother Randy Jackson has his way, then the site is going to become the epicenter of a battle royale. He’s trying to get permission to let MJ fans go “beyond the gates of Forest Lawn” to pay their respects up close and personal on the King Of Pop’s one year death anniversary (on June 25th).

Here’s the problem: it’s an extremely private cemetery, and normally non-family members can’t access the inner sanctum. Other celebrities like Clark Gable are buried there and and his grandson, Clark Gable III, isn’t happy at all saying that the area “wouldn’t be as sacred” if anyone off the street could waltz in. It would get messy too, with hoards of hardcore fans cramming in. Randy has someone on his side, though. Author Ronald J. Fields, who is the grandson of the legendary comedian, actor and writer, W.C. Fields, is okay with the plan. He thinks fans should get a shot because the experience would be “moving to them.”

American Idol Season 9: Let The Battle Begin


Has it really been seven months since we crowned Kris Allen the king of American Idol? It may not seem like it, since we’ve been so thoroughly entertained by Adam Lambert who has superseded Allen as the one we love to watch in that time. Will any of this season’s crop of contestants manage to reach the polarizing levels of fame that Lambert has? That’s what we want to know, and there was no better place to kick off the search than in Boston. Our first instinct was to write this recap phonetically to truly capture the Massachusetts dialect, which is near and dear to us, as we grew up outside Boston. We’ll spare you, but don’t be surprised if we drop our “R”s here and there. Now, allow us to indulge in our top five favorite moments of the premiere and please realize that if we could, we’d give Victoria Beckham‘s lace head-wrap it’s own blog post, but we have more pressing things to discuss.
