Michael Jackson’s Memorial Tribute began with THIS AMAZING SONG by grammy winner Andre Crouch in LA. From Hollywood, here are you top 10 posts on Horiwood.Com as we say farewell to The King of Pop, from the City of Angels.
KOBE BRYANT & MAGIC JOHNSON: BASKETBALL GREATS THANK MICHAEL JACKSON FOR HIS LOVE OF KFC & OPENING THE DOORS IN PRIME TIME FOR ALL AFRICAN AMERICANS!
Kobe Bryant: We all know that no one ever gave onstage like Michael Jackson. Michael came from humble roots but he cared very deeply for those in need. He made The Guinness Book of Records for Charities Most supported by a pop star. because he gave so much, Michael Jackson will be remembered forever.”
Magic Johnson: “I truly believe that Michael Jackson made me the best point guard ever, by watching him perform.”
Michael ate Kentucky Fried Chicken. That made my day, That was the greatest moment of my life. And I want to say this… This is a Celebration of his life, of his legacy. I want to thank Michael Jackson, for opening up so many doors for African Americas. He allowed Kobe and I, to have our jerseys in homes all over the world, because Michael was already there. Michael’s children have the most incredible grandmother to take care of them, and many uncles, aunties and cousins to play with. May God continue to bless this family and may God bless you Michael.”
11.17 AM, 7.7.09, The Staples Center, Los Angeles, USA
Then Jennifer Hudson, whose pregnant with child, rocked the crowd with her amazing pipes, sing MJ’s hit, Hold Me, wearing white. Having seen Jennifer perform live in LA, Downtown, that right there… is a major moment for the live audience. She’s too much!
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Michael Jackson’s manager, Frank DiLio, the King of Pop spent his last night singing and dancing in rehearsals at The Staples Center in LA doing what he loves best, performing.
A sobbing, told Roger Friedman, Friday: “The show at the Staples Center was amazing. Michael rehearsed 10 or 11 songs. He sang and danced, not always at full power, but the way you do for a run-through. When the show was over, he called me, but I was in the back getting something. He found me, and said, ‘Frank, I am so happy. He said he was just so happy. He said, This is really our time. He put his arm around me.”
Although Jackson’s tragic and unexpected passing has shocked the entertainment world in America, it’s a nice thought, thinking that MJ spent his last night on earth where Kobe Bryant’s LA Lakers are America’s #1 basketball champs. Nice one!
The Cleveland Cavaliers and the Phoenix Suns are trading off and are sending Shaquille O’Neal to Cleveland to join LeBron James, say reports. That’s a pretty fierce pairing to try and take on Kobe Bryant’s LA Lakers top team. Love it!
Catherine Zeta Jones reprised her dance number from Chicago last night to honor and celebrate her husband Michael Douglas’ achievements in film for the American Film Institute on Sunset Blvd here in Hollywood.

Tiger and Ellen Woods, were the power couple in the crowd tonight, in one of the most riveting games that the LA Lakers fans have ever seen.
It was Derek Fisher that saved the day, not once but twice.
Here’s how it went down:
Fisher forced overtime with a 3-pointer with 4.6 seconds left in regulation and then drilled another one with 31.3 seconds to go in overtime as the Los Angeles Lakers outlasted the Orlando Magic 99-91 in Game 4 on Thursday night to open a 3-1 lead in the NBA finals.
It was the first time since 1984, when Magic Johnson’s Lakers and Larry Bird’s Celtics hooked up, that two games in a finals have gone to overtime.

BASKETBALL DATE OF THE YEAR: LA LAKERS & THE ORLANDO MAGIC GAME 4 IS SET TO BRING CHRIS BROWN & RIHANNA TOGETHER
People is reporting that Chris Brown and pop star Rihanna will be sitting together at tonight’s big Orlando Magic and LA Lakers game.
“They requested to sit together” at the matchup featuring the Los Angeles Lakers vs. the Orlando Magic, says the source. Before the game, Rihanna was spotted at a nearby T.G.I. Friday’s.
If Chris and Rihanna do make good on the double ticket seats, then Kobe Bryant is going to have some major competition tonight, holding audiences and TV camera’s attention. [image source]
Because she’s so important, Jennifer Aniston is on the cover of the Czech Republic’s Joy Magazine. After Angelina Jolie silently inherited Aniston’s princess baggage via partner Brad Pitt, Forbes Magazine finally checked Aniston’s mooching streak, by deservedly naming Angelina at just 34 years-of-age, the #1 celebrity in the world for 2009.
I’m glad somebody did. Thank you Forbes. Now Jenn will actually have to find another celebrity meal ticket that will kindly adopt her. Jenn has been subtly playing the sympathy card and riding Angelina’s ‘home wrecking‘ coattails for years now; in between “hanging out at Courtney and David’s house” and going to work sometimes by appearing in the odd film. We’ve given Jenn our empathetic movie ticket dollars for years now! It’s just got to stop! Young emerging actors now need them in a recession.
Playing the spurned ‘other woman’ to Angelina has been Aniston’s MAIN gig for half a decade now. Forbes totally called her on it by moving Angie up to #1. It’s now time for Jennifer Aniston to put down her hair straightening tongs for a Hollywood minute and book a plane ticket to a third world country… not just Mexico for margaritas on the beach… a real one!
Jennifer, all of America and the world gives you their blessing and permission to finally grow up, go to Africa and make a difference too! On that note…

Rihanna wasn’t the only big star cheering on the LA Lakers beat the Orlando Magic. Zac Efron and Leonardo DiCaprio also were courtside talking movie roles in between hollars at Kobe Bryant’s sheer brilliance on court.
LA… it’s so much fun to live here. :)
It was a star-studded event last night when the LA Lakers beat the Orlando Magic in Game 1 of the NBA finals. Kobe Bryant was just da bom! One of his best games ever! Jessica Simpson and Tony Romo turned up on Thursday to see the Lakers’ winning prowess on court (winning 100-75) at The Staples Center here in LA.
Kanye West, Leonardo DiCaprio and Lauren Conrad also turned up to cheer the Lakers to victory.
LA Times has the best feature today on how Amazing Kobe Bryant is. Kobe Bryant, 30, whose Lakers begin the NBA Finals against Orlando tonight, has played in 1,118 NBA games. When Michael Jordan was the same age, he had played in 340 fewer games with the Chicago Bulls. Is Kobe, bigger and better than Michael Jordan’s legendary basketball legacy, if this is the case?
Meanwhile not only is Bryant on par to lead the LA Lakers into the NBA final, but he’s also managed to get himself onto the Top 10 Most powerful celebrities in the world list, this year. (more…)
Jay-Z and Alex Rodriguez have become new buds as they hang out courtside at the Orlando Magic and Cleveland Cavaliers Thursday night game during game 5 of the Eastern Conference playoffs at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland. The Cavaliers beat the Magic, 112-102.
Who would have thought, that Kate Hudson’s current boyfriend, Alex Rodriguez is a buddy of Jay-Z, as Beyonce’s camp and Kate Hudson’s camp sniff around Madonna’s ex. Is there life after Madonna? Yes! :) [source]
The first time we saw Zac Efron at an LA Lakers match he went with Leonardo DiCaprio, the next time he went to a Lakers game it was with girlfriend Vanessa Hudgens.
Last night, Efron went solo. He’s pictured here leaving the Staples Center, where the Lakers beat the Denver Nuggets 103-94. [image source]
He may have a black eye, but Chris Brown still has a friend in Usher. The two bros are courtside watching the Magic beat the Cavs last night in Orlando. Ouch!
Tom rolls out with son Connor Kidman Cruz, Katie Cruz rolls out with daughter Suri Cruise. Nice to see Tom Cruise spending quality time with son Conner, courtside at the LA Lakers game. Baskeball rules ya’ll! Wireimage

Liam Neeson took his sons, Micheál Neeson and Daniel Neeson to the New York Nicks game last night with family friend, actor, Aidan Quinn. It was good news for the Neeson lads’ home team who defeated the Nets. It’s so great to see Liam and sons, celebrating family and life in the spirit that Natasha Richardson lived and loved. The family that plays together moves on in strength together. Nice one Neeson boys!
