Michael Jackson & Usher

Today the official public memorial takes place @ the Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles. The memorial should start at 10am, but delays wouldn’t surprise me. It’s a WHOLE lotta melanin on the  list—okay Mariah Carey excluded, but here it go:

Ron Boyd (family friend), Kobe Bryant, Mariah Carey, Andrae Crouch Choir, Berry Gordy, Jennifer Hudson, Shaheen Jafargholi (finalist on Britain’s Got Talent), Magic Johnson, Martin Luther King III, Bernice A. King, John Mayer, Lionel Richie, Smokey Robinson, Rev. Al Sharpton, Brooke Shields, Pastor Lucious Smith (family friend), Usher and Stevie Wonder. [SOURCE]

If you don’t have one of these, don’t even think about coming close to the Staples Center unless you’re selling bottled water & RIP Michael Jackson iron on t-shirts:
