Michael Jackson - Michael Jackson To Receive Glove Tribute In Hollywood

Michael Jackson will be honoured with an imprint outside Grauman's Chinese Theater in Hollywood.

The King of Pop's three children, Prince, 14, Paris, 13, and nine-year-old Prince Michael II - known as 'Blanket' - will use his shoes and trademark sequined glove to make handprint and footprint impressions in the concrete.

Making the prints outside the theatre is a long standing Hollywood tradition and Michael's prints will stand alongside those of George Clooney, Marilyn Monroe, Gene Kelly, Clint Eastwood and Brad Pitt.

Also on hand at the event, to be held on January 26, will be the cast of Cirque du Soleil show 'Michael Jackson The Immortal World Tour', who will make a presentation.

The Cirque du Soleil production, which is inspired by the late singer's music, is set to tour the US and Canada in 2012 before taking up residency in Las Vegas. Michael also has a star on Hollywood's famous Walk of Fame, which is located a short distance from the theatre.

Michael died in 2009 from acute Propofol intoxication, after years of struggling with addiction to prescription drugs. While his children were shielded from the public - often wearing masks - during their earlier years, they have been in the public eye much more since his death.

Paris recently admitted she felt the masks they wore were "stupid" at the time.

She said: "I'm like, 'This is stupid, why am I wearing a mask?' But I kind of realised the older I got, he only tried to protect us and he'd explain that to us too."

Here we go again, another phrase to reflect something negative on MJ. You people have REPEATEDLY FOR YEARS NOW TALKED ABOUT HOW MJ'S DEATH WAS FROM PROPOFOL ADDICTION, now HOW MANY TIMES WILL YOU PEOPLE REPEAT HIS CHILD'S COMMENT ON OF THE ELLEN SHOW ABOUT SHE THOUGHT "AS A LITTLE KID" IT WAS 'STUPID" TO WEAR MASK. Was that all the media got from that entire interview??? Enough of this sh-t. Give it a rest and let this man RIP! The media IS ONE OF THE REASONS MJ IS WHERE HE IS NOW. YOU PEOPLE WOULD NOT LET UP FOR 40 YEARS.ENOUGH!!!!!!!! I am so glad that he is being honored because God knows he deserves it.

paris shouldn't have said that !. Some media pp lick up too much Michael's kids asses, they are just his kids nothing else. They don't have any musical or dancing talents , they are just normal kids so please stop paying so much attentions on them.Michael was a star not his kids.

I really think that Paris was just making a matter of fact comment that is getting blown out of proportion. Lighten up people...she very well knew the reasons her father did what he did for his children...what any parent would want to do...look at Bon Jovi, he is an ass, and I met him once, he all but cut through the line at toys r us to shield his children. It is what it is. I love you Michael!
