Jackson’s Prince to make Surprise Appearance? [RUMOR]

“This Is It,” Michael Jackson’s much expected and, some say, overdue comeback to the music scene, kicks off this July at London’s O2 Arena. There will be no less than 50 shows, for which all tickets have been completely sold out in the first days they went on sale, with speculation that the tour might extend to the US as well. Given the magnitude of the event, it’s no wonder that fans want to know some of the details of the performances beforehand.

Sources from the organizers, as well as from Michael’s entourage, are here to share with the media some of the “secret” surprises the King of Pop is currently preparing. According to the Daily Mail, one such surprise would be a cameo from none other than Jackson’s eldest son, Prince, who will reportedly be sharing the stage with his father and sing for the first time ever.

Gossip Monger Roger Friedman Gets Fired?

In classic gossip-columnist style, Roger Friedman has for more than a decade raised hackles, nursed grudges, launched vendettas, staged bitch-fests and also broken news in his entertainment column for Fox News, Fox411.

He made plenty of enemies in the process. But Friedman finally did himself in this weekend when he boasted on his blog that he had downloaded the leaked copy of the upcoming blockbuster “Wolverine” and reviewed it in advance — an act of  piracy that the company could not tolerate.

“Right now, my ‘cousins’ at 20th Century Fox are probably having apoplexy,” he blithely wrote in the post, since removed. “But everyone can relax.
