Elizabeth Taylor won’t be going to MJ funeral

While half the musical world will be attending Michael Jackson’s memorial today in LA, the singer’s best friend Elizabeth Taylor won’t be among them as she has decided to stay away from what she calls the “public whoopla” of the memorial, which is expected to be watched by one billion people around the world.

Writing on Twitter (is she not too old for Twitter??), the 77-year-old said:

“I’ve been asked to speak at the Staples Center. I cannot be part of the public whoopla. And I cannot guarantee that I would be coherent to say a word.

“I just don’t believe that Michael would want me to share my grief with millions of others. How I feel is between us. Not a public event.

“I love him too much.”
