For those of you who are loyal to our site, you may have noticed a lull this past week. As we posted, two of the Dames had computers that decided to spontaneously combust on the eve of Michael Jackson’s Memorial. Therefore, we missed covering it for you. A thousand apologies.
In case you are the one (and there was only one) who missed the memorial, we have included the video here. The memorial was quite moving and featured performances by Mariah Carey, Jennifer Hudson, Usher, Stevie Wonder, and my personal favorite, Lionel Richie. There were also tributes paid to Jackson by his friends such as Motown Records founder Barry Gordy and Queen Latifiah.
Needless to say, the most moving moment of the service was when Michael’s daughter, Paris, spoke to the crowd both at the Staples Center, and the nearly one billion viewers at home. Her goodbye to her father was heart-wrenching, and her words: “I just wanted to say I love him so much,” left us all teary-eyed.
