Michael Jackson o2 arena delaysMichael Jackson has delayed his London concert series. Jackson will now kick off his O2 Arena residency on July 13, five days later than originally planned, as we reported yesterday. It has been reported the 50-year-old Jackson is to have surgery on his skin cancer today, with doctors removing cancerous flesh on his chest and nose.

may also need radiation gun therapy to ensure all diseased cells are destroyed, according to Britain’s The Sun newspaper. Randy Phillips, president of AEG Live who are promoting the tour, has dismissed Jackson’s rumoured cancer battle and stressed the delay is down to the “massive and technically complex show”. He said: “Michael is not sleeping with elephants and not suffering skin cancer. He’s a magnet for weird stories but he’s in great shape. I’d trade my body for his tomorrow. This show has grown in size and scope, thereby, necessitating more lead time for manufacture of the set, programming the content for the massive video elements, and, most importantly, more time for full production and dress rehearsals. As much as we agonised over this change in the original schedule, we are sure the fans will understand when they experience the level of entertainment Michael Jackson intends to deliver while also ensuring the safety of the musicians, cast and crew and the crisp execution of the production.”

Nas and Kelis

Hip hop couple Nas and Kelis are calling a wrap to their marriage after she filed to divorce the hip hop legend.  The filing comes at an unfortunate time since Kelis is seven months pregnant, but as she claims in her divorce papers, Nas has been verbally abusive and cheats on her.  Hopefully, the couple can keep the proceedings civil since there is a child involved and things go smoothly, both in the divorce of the couple’s almost six-year marriage and Kelis’ delivery.

American IdiotEarly next year, U2’s Bono and The Edge will officially be listed as the composers for Broadway’s Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark. But those unable to make it to New York can get an entirely different rock opera experience on the West Coast.

Beginning this fall, the Berkeley Repertory Theater in California will feature American Idiot, a stage musical based on Green Day’s 2004 album of the same name. The production is being directed by Tony winner Michael Mayer (Spring Awakening) and co-written by the band’s lead singer, Billie Joe Armstrong.

The 2004 album, which included such songs as Boulevard of Broken Dreams and Wake Me Up When September Ends, followed the story of Jesus of Suburbia, a disaffected suburban kid-turned-drug dealer. Idiot went on to win several Grammys (Best Rock Album, Record of the Year) and sell 12 million copies.

Justin Timberlake

Although it’s already been 2 1/2 years since FutureSex/LoveSounds initially dropped, don’t expect to release a new album anytime soon.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the singer-songwriter/producer-actor/fashion designer said he’s not feeling the urge at this moment to lock himself up in a recording studio.

“Right now, I like the idea that things can just kind of pop up and if they feel right I can do them,” Timberlake explained. “Committing to my own sort of project, that’s like, ‘Okay, let me block out two years of my life and do it.’ I was heavily fulfilled with the last one and I always have this thing with myself that if I can’t sleep because I need to do it, then I’m gonna do it. But if I’m not losing sleep over it then…”

J.D. FortuneSeveral years after a televised search, INXS is once again without a lead singer.

Back in 2005, the remaining members of the Australian band scoured the country to find a new frontman. (Michael Hutchence committed suicide in 1997.) Although they discovered J.D. Fortune through CBS’ Rock Star: INXS, the Canadian singer’s stint with the group was short-lived.

Shortly after completing an international tour, the 35-year-old said he was abruptly dismissed from his job. “I was in an airport in Hong Kong and literally got handshakes of `thank you very much,’” Fortune told Entertainment Tonight Canada. “I found myself really alone because I had travelled with these guys for 23 months. Some of the audiences we played for were upwards of 80,000 people,” he added.

Rihanna and Chris BrownUPDATE #2: Sources for the LA Times claim Rihanna was the woman in the car.

The two eventually exited the vehicle when Chris reportedly became physical with the passenger. By the time officers arrived, the singer had already left the scene. That was when the injured victim named the Brown as the suspect.

Although it’s unclear what Rihanna’s role is in this matter (the victim’s name was not released), her appearance at the 51st annual event was canceled late this evening. (She and Brown were both scheduled to perform.) When contacted, her rep offered this statement to the media: “Rihanna is well. Thank you for concern and support.”

R&B legend Al Green has reportedly been asked to help fill the telecast’s hole.
