5 members of the Jackson family have announced a tribute concert for deceased pop idol Michael Jackson in Cardiff, Wales this October. Katherine Jackson – Michael’s mother – along with siblings La Toya, Marlon, Jackie, and Tito attended the announcement of the tribute; while absent brothers Jermaine and Randy released a statement saying,

“We want to make clear that this does not reflect the position of the entire family. While we wholeheartedly support the spirit of a tribute that honors our brother, we find it impossible to support an event that is due to take place during the criminal trial surrounding Michael’s death.” READ MORE

Nicki Minaj To Endorse MAC Make Up

Nicki Minaj will join the list of other celebrities such as Mary J. Blige, Elton John, Lil Kim, and more recently Lady Gaga to represent the face of MAC make up. It’s all for a good cause too. The MAC AIDS Viva Glam Initiative gives all proceeds from products sold on the line to aid in the cure for HIV/AIDS. The campaign is going to be shot by  the now famous photographer, David LaChapelle (the guy who is suing Rihanna).  I’m sure sales for the line will boost once Nicki’s own shade of lipstick becomes available for purchase to fans in the upcoming months. Latino star, Ricky Martin is set to star with Nicki Minaj in the new campaign for MAC. We all know how animated Nicki can get so I’m sure the campaign will be every bit of interesting. Are you going to purchase some of the make up to help the cause? What do you think of MAC’s choice to use Nicki Minaj in their new campaign?

How did you feel about the Vibe.com photo shoot?

I absolutely loved it! The stylist Tamara Connor was amazing. Mara Z styled my hair with the help of her assistant Dina as well as my regular hairstylist, Shontelle Sampeur. Mara also did my makeup.
