Those of you who have a remote interest as to why Michael Jackson did not attend the Grammy's the other week, despite all the hype from both the Jackson and the Grammy's camp about his possible attendance, may be interested to know why.
Seemingly, if reports are to believed, Jackson made a few too many demands:
-He wanted a special honouree to introduce him on stage.
-He demanded a special award, something that no one had or would ever receive again.
-He wanted the entire event dedicated to his career, with no less than 30 mentions referring to him as the "King of Pop".
Unsurprisingly, the organisers of the Grammy's said no.
However, both Jackson and the Grammy's did receive a very large amount of free publicity in the run up to the awards, as the media speculated as to whether he would attend or not.
Both Jackson and the Grammy's did very well out of it.
