This just in: Michael Jackson's estate inks record-breaking deal, Johnny Weir not participating in Stars on Ice
- The Michael Jackson estate is poised to cash in big, via a just-signed $200 million contract with Sony for 10 projects over seven years, the Associated Press reports. The biggest recording deal in history will include an album of never-before-released material to be issued in November, a source told the AP.
- The "Stars on Ice" figure-skating tour is denying that it excluded Johnny Weir because, well, everyone thinks he's gay. The fur-wearing Olympics favorite has avoided publicly discussing his sexual orientation, but in an interview last week he said the tour barred him because he's "not family-friendly"; the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation followed with a petition chiding organizers. The tour, which comes to D.C. on April 8, issued a statement saying that "gender identity and sexual orientation" are not a factor in choosing performers -- this year, Evan Lysacek, Tanith Belbin and Benjamin Agosto, among others -- and that they just don't have room for everyone.
