Beyoncé to Perform Via Satellite at Michael Jackson Tribute Concert

Beyoncé

Beyoncé will pay tribute to her idol Michael Jackson during a star-studded tribute concert in October.

The singer will appear via satellite at “Michael Forever: The Tribute Concert,” promoters announced on Facebook. She will perform one of her favorite Jackson 5 records in what’s being billed as a “unique, never-before-seen performance.”

She was unable to appear live due to a scheduling conflict. “A lifelong Michael fan, Beyoncé really wanted to be involved in this tribute concert,” read the statement. “Due to scheduling issues she can’t be there in person, but this performance is not to be missed!”

The concert, sanctioned by Michael’s mother Katherine Jackson, will take place on October 8 in Cardiff, Wales, with members of the Jackson family taking the stage including the King of Pop’s brothers and 3T, which consists of Tito Jackson’s three sons.

Previously announced performers include Christina Aguilera, Leona Lewis, Cee Lo Green, Smokey Robinson, JLS, Alien Ant Farm, and Craig David.

    @Beyoncefan, this is true Beyonce’ has gotten inspiration from MJ, but she commands the stage with perfection in choreography and vocals, Beyonce’ is the ULTIMATE performer. MJ was the greatest performer before Beyonce’ but now Beyonce’ is the greatest performer. #WRTW?

    I’m sick of this shit. Why is she doing stuff via satellite like she’s too important to show up? First the BET awards now Michael Jackson. The ultimate disrespect. I say exclude the hoe if she can’t find time to attend in person.

    [Reply]

    T Reply:

    @theREAL., Are you really that stupid or are you REALLY that stupid?

    First of all, during the time of the BET Awards she was already scheduled for Glastonbury WAY before BET asked her to perform.

    Same for this tribute here. It’s better for her to do it via satellite instead of not at all.

    [Reply]

    theREAL. Reply:

    @T, Are you really that good at sucking her pussy or are you REALLY that good at sucking her pussy? Who gives a fuck about her scheduling. That’s why ppl don’t double book shit you asshole, so they won’t have to end up doing some sorry ass satellite performance. MICHAEL JACKSON is an icon and deserves a hell of a lot more than that. She should not do it at all if she can’t bring her ass to give a live tribute performance. So try again muthafuka

    [Reply]

    @theREAL., You try again…She has other places to be which came first she’s not going to cancel for this. And she is just as iconic.

    @T, are you really that good at kissing her ass or are you REALLY good at kissing her ass?

    You can lick her ass all you want but if she had her scheduling on point she wouldn’t double book you asshole. It’s a cheap ass way to pay tribute to MICHAEL JACKSON, the greatest entertainer of all time. In addition, no one watching the BET awards gave a fuck about glastonbury or any other sad attempts at promotion. Do you understand?

    [Reply]

    Teyah Reply:

    @theREAL., I agree with T you are sooo STUPID! she didn’t show up to the BET awards because of the Glastonbury Festival and BET wanted her to perform for ratings! And if you read the post it says she has a “scheduling conflict” so she can’t make it to the MJ tribute concert live.

    [Reply]

    theREAL. Reply:

    @Teyah, and you’re a FUCKING IDIOT. You people don’t understand that it is unprofessional to double book, whatever you are doing. If you can’t make it to your job one day, your SORRY ASS can’t show up via satellite. Performers that are far bigger that Bey don’t even use that excuse and pull shit like this, especially for such an icon as MJ.

    KaramelKiss Reply:

    @theREAL., what do you know about double booking working at McDonald’s? Bitch please, if Katherine put this concert together at the last minute she can expect little to no participation. From the celebs mentioned, it looks like she has very lttle participation. But I’m sure your fave is waiting by the phone to get an invite.

    STFU Reply:

    @theREAL., Honey, don’t be mad! That’s what happens when you are in HIGH FUCKING DEMAND!! You have to be in two places at the same time. You have a lot of shit to say, shame its all negative.

    theREAL. Reply:

    @STFU, Actually it’s not all negative and I’m not mad. I was just stating my entitled opinion, when everybody and their fucking mama wanna reply. How about leave your own comment and stop trying to argue over public opinion. And when was the last time you were in two places at once? Never, because that is not practical even if demand is high. Shit, the system of economic should have taught you that. So how about let people state their opinion freely without dictating what they can and cant say.

    @theREAL., seriously thou you really must be stupid it said DUE TO CONFLICTS !! Just like with the BET awards beyonce had booked glastonbury months ahead of time then the bet awards announced their date months after.. you just like other people just always wannaa have something to complain about when it comes to beyonce

    [Reply]

    theREAL. Reply:

    @stewie, i think bey is cool, but i’m sorry if you can’t attend a tribute for MJ in person, you shouldn’t even participate. That goes for anyone. What other celebrity does things via satellite? U2, Janet, and Madonna don’t even do shit like that – conflicts or no conflicts. damn she ain’t the first lady.

    [Reply]

    KaramelKiss Reply:

    @theREAL., i hate ignorant people. did you not read in the post that due to a scheduling conflict she will not be able to attend in person. Meaning she had something else scheduled & was later asked to participate & instead of declining she accepted. What is your fave doing? As far as the BET awards, who did show up for that lip synching fest (yep Lil’ Wayne, Rick Ross, Kelly Rowland) the backup tracks for that show were in heavy rotation that night.

    @KaramelKiss, First off I don’t have a “fave” cause don’t none of these celebrity pay my damn bills. However I do think it’s pathetic to defend someone you don’t even know. Im just stating my opinion on a public form and I got ASSHOLES like you wanting to argue. FUCK YOU ALL. None of em you mentioned are MJ status including Bey and if you knew any damn thing Katherine didn’t put it together last minute. So don’t get mad if i state my opinion hoe.

    KaramelKiss Reply:

    @theREAL., Asshole & hoe … now wait a minute, you can save that for your mother because all I asked is if you read the post. These celebrities don’t pay my bills either but if you are so nonchalant (meaning you don’t care one way or the other) why the fuck did you comment? It’s funny how all of a sudden everybody idolizes MJ because the very fans on his sack now were probably the sames ones that thought he molested those kids. Bey is one of the best of this generation but I don’t put her MJ’s level either so you being extra is just you being a nonmutherfucking factor … bye bitch!

But you know, an old wive’s tale is to not share any news about your pregnancy before 3 months because it’s bad luck & the first 3 months are the most critical.

    Why do people keep bringing up a “FAV?” What does that mean?

    Is that the only argument you have? I like Beyonce but I kind of feel sorry for some of her fans and their need to feel they have to put down other people to raise her up or prove a point. A top 10 sign of low self esteem…

    Beyonce’ is the sh!t. There is no need to compare her to other, so why do it? It doesn’t make her look any better AND she doesn’t need it.

    All it SUCCESSFULLY does is show that YOU have a lack of debate skills and you don’t know how to prove your point. Please retire the “fav” line. It’s about as played as “hater” AND “swag.”

    [Reply]

    KaramelKiss Reply:

    @???, FAV means favorite, example who is your favorite artist? I don’t put people down but I will put them in their place. Who goes on a post about anything or anyone that they don’t like & comment but a LOSER? Yet “beyonce haterS” do … that is why she is so successful because her haters are just as dedicated as her fans. AND we fans/stans love it … keep making them mad BEY!

    [Reply]

    ??? Reply:

    @KaramelKiss,

    I agree with you…BUT…you’ve stated the obvious. You’re not really putting anyone in their place because a hater is always going to be a hater…

    …my question to you is has “you’re putting people in their place” worked yet, since they are so-called edicated? Nope.

    It doesn’t appear to shake Beyonce either so what’s the point? If it’s not knocking her success, and you KNOW that haters are going to hate, why waste your breath? Arguing with a negative person is about as pointless as hating…you haven’t put anyone in their place…all you’ve done is made someone feel more important than they’re because you fed into their bullshit. And you did.

    Just a thought…

    [Reply]

    ??? Reply:

    @KaramelKiss,

    Also, when you “taunt” people, you are almost as much ofhte problem.

    It’s one thing to tell people to deal with Beyonce’s success (which for some is really hard), and it’s another to question, “Are you mad?”

    Isn’t this kind of a stupid question? you know theyy’re mad, so AGAIN, why waste your time?

    I believe B stans need haters as much as B stans say haters need B. Sick freakin cycle if you ask me…

    If your responses are only to put others down by asking them “are they mad?” is just as counterproductive as the work of a hater?

    Are you happy that someone is mad? Because that’s just as lame as being mad about someone’s success. If you’re not apart of the building up of people, you’re just as much apart of destruction and are no better than the people you are calling out.

    When you point your finger, make sure the 3 fingers pointing at you are clean…just sayin…

    “Due to a scheduling conflict” if she really has a scheduling conflict then how can she do a LIVE performance via satellite because she’d be busy doing something else right? If MJ is really her idol, then she stop whatever is she’s doing to be there and pay tribute to him. Beyonce just says these things to make headlines. First her idol was Diana Ross, then Tina Turner, then Prince and Luther Vandross after she worked with them, then Stevie Wonder after their collabo, then Whitney Houston, then Patti LaBelle and now it’s MJ, girl sit. Like I said, if Beyonce’s idol is really MJ, then she take the time to show up and perform their live not via sate#llite. She’s so overrated, it’s ridiculous. #SMDH

    @Heavy Metal Lover, So overrated that you are on her post commenting. Thanks for the acknowledgment … if the concert is one part of the world and she is in another part doing whatever that may overlap in terms of time w/ the MJ concert that would cause a scheduling conflict. Yes, she has acknowledged that she is a fan of alot of people but she has only stated MJ is her idol. Again why are you so concerned w/ what she does or doesn’t do if you feel she is overrated or youre not a fan … bye!!
