Janet Jackson -- If the Glove Fits

9/8/2009 2:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Janet JacksonJanet Jackson has been busting her butt rehearsing for a Michael Jackson tribute at the MTV Video Awards this weekend -- and it promises to be a nipple-free affair. We think.

Ms. Jackson is set to put on a huge MJ-honoring performance featuring 20 backup dancers -- which is being put together by some of the best choreographers in the world, including Frank Gatson and Travis Payne.

According to one of the dancers involved, some rehearsals have lasted 15 hours a day.

Once Janet is finished honoring her brother, we're told, "there won't be a dry eye in the house."

I totally agree with #92. Not only is she full of crap========the whole stinking family is! They just want more stinking money. I think his mother Katharine is a joke---as a mother you PROTECT your children----from everyone INCLUDING their father is need be. They have got to be one of the all time loser-dysfunctional families. What else are they going to jump on in order to make a buck?

Michael Jackson is dead .. RIP .... His looser family on the other hand want to ride the Michael Jackson gravy train until the last gold coin can be made by them. When it's all over they will want his children's share of the money.. I hope someone is watching out for his children they are the real loosers in all of this.

I love Michael Jackson - I only feel sad that Michael never met anyone who could help him, but then again, who could understand the depths of his pain? Ultimately, he didn’t die of drug abuse, but of a broken heart.

Listen! He was an addict! He acted just as addict do. If he wasn't on drugs he would have acted differently. Addicts isolate themselves from family and friends; and are surrounded by enablers. If his own children, whom he loved dearly, wasn’t enough to get him to quit using, then no one could’ve. As much as he loved God, even God had to take the back seat to his drug addiction. It doesn’t make him a bad guy, just a guy in need of a quick fix. Everybody hurts sometimes; it's called life. Shoot! My childhood was worst than his, but I kind of enjoyed riding the waves of life. Now I can counsel those afraid to ride their own waves. That's just life.

The two thing he did get to take with him was the love of everyone who loved him, and his faith. Those two spiritual things are eternal, and I’m sure he’s enjoying them to the fullest, without the need for drugs. ENJOY MICHAEL!

ADRIANA.. What you said is truly beautiful, I couldn't have written it better myself. I sincerely believe that Michael was too special for this world, one of a kind. At least now he's at peace and dancing with the angels. Forever in our hearts and thoughts. Love you so much Michael, the world is lost without your love. xxxxxxxxxx

I think Janet is very genuine in her affection for her brother and her desire to honor him.

However, I am appalled that Jermaine asked Chris Brown to perform at the Austria Tribute. They should change the name of the concert to "Jermaine uses his brother's death and songs to try to rekindle his old career and pretend to be MJ as a philanthropist" concert.

No wonder MJ didn't want anything to do with this family. They probably delayed his funeral to film their reality tv series on grieving for MJ for A&E. They probably filmed part of the funeral service for it.

I am so disgusted that they are contaminating MJ's legacy this way. He was the greatest entertainer this world has ever seen and nothing like his family.
