Janet Jackson has turned down the headline slot at the previously reported Michael Jackson tribute concert being held in Cardiff on 8 Oct.

It seems Janet is in the half of the Jackson clan which thinks holding the tribute concert while Dr Conrad Murray is being tried for causing their late sibling’s death is a bad idea. The other half, of course, have officially endorsed the tribute show.

Some expected Janet to head the bill at the tribute concert, but she issued a statement this weekend saying: “Because of the trial, the timing of this tribute to our brother would be too difficult for me”.
