Everyone thinks that Diana Ross is a strange choice for backup guardian for Michael Jackson’s children. But is she really? She has raised her children that have managed to stay out of trouble. You don’t hear stories about her children checking into rehab, or even worse checking into jail. And there are tons of grandparents Diana’s age raising their grandchildren in this country.

Michael’s parents screwed up Michael and his siblings. So I can understand that if Michael doesn’t want those same siblings raising the children he went to extreme lengths to protect. Or an even worse scenario, the kids left in the care of Joe Jackson. He would probably try to beat them into becoming performers like their father, aunts, and uncles.

And the LA Times is reporting that Michael Jackson’s memorial will be held Tuesday at the Staples Center.
