Michael Jackson did not show up at the Grammys

Michael Jackson did not show up at the Grammys
Today's Hollywood gossip:
Everybody is expecting Michael Jackson to be there at the Grammy Awards, especially because of his 25th anniversary of the Thriller album was coming out the very next day. According to Cindy Adams, his demands were so outrageous - he wanted a special awards created just specially for him to be given. Not just in honour of Thriller, but as a career of achievement. He also wanted to choice the A-list celebrity who would actually bestow the award on him. He also reported wanted 30 references to himself prior to appearance as the "King of pop". (source: Sunrise, 20 Feb 2008)

If the gossip was true, it seems like Michael Jackson asked a bit too much.

Well, that is new is that the Thriller 25 was out in the last few days, and I am due to get it. Thriller features special remixes and never before released songs. Those include, Akon, Fergie, Kanye West etc. There are two versions available in Australia. the regular packaging one and the special booklet packaging one. I have a feeling that I will get the booklet version.

Michael Jackson Thriller 25On iTunes Store, you can also get the “Super Deluxe Edition” which features the bonus material from "Thriller Special Edition", "Billie Jean (Underground Mix)", an instrumental "Thriller" mix, an extended "Billie Jean" and a digital booklet is available.

Why not demand all that? He is still the one to beat in terms of music history. More than just the sales off Thriller, but what about his ATV catalog deal? His royalties cut from his music (still higher than other artists)? His countless other awards? His career of 40+ yrs? His extreme influence over pop culture for decades? His 2 stars on the walk of fame? Justin Timberlake doesnt even have one of those and he's past the age of when Michael Jackson got his own star.....And, he probably didnt want to even go anyway so thats why he demanded all that stuff. He probably knew that they wouldnt give it all to him. It's spoiled but EXTREMELY smart. If thats the case he got exactly what he wanted: He got tons of free press and didnt have to lift a finger.
Savvy move! Good for Michael.
