Since I’m going to watch the movie tonight I thought I’d blog about the red carpet premiere in Los Angeles on Tuesday at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live. Tinsel Town’s finest put on all their expensive designer clothes to pay homage to the greatest pop legend of our time. “Will Smith, Jennifer Lopez, Paula Abdul, Paris Hilton, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Ashley Tisdale, Jason Von Berg, Xolisa Dyeshana, “American Idol” winner David Cook, DJ Fistaz Mixwell, [flute hotties Kwela Tebza, Jermaine and Marlon, Kabomo Vilakazi, Kenny Ortega, Khaya Dlanga, Mdoda, who?] Michel Jackson (yes the PR note says so, you think he was there?), Mickey Rooney, MJ’s brothers Jackie, Nthsongwana, rally racer Gugu Zulu and Poppy Ntshongwana, Shaka Sisulu, So You Think You Can Dance presenter Sade Gilberti, Ster-Kinekor, Suede and TKZee’s Kabelo Mabalane were all present and accounted for in support and to honor the memory of the late king of pop, Michael Jackson.”

So tonight I’m going to watch with my heart in my hands and tears will be shed. I’m greedy for every last bit of footage we will ever see and I will never forget, what I finally understand to be; the day the music died.
