Jackson Funeral Pure "Whoopla," Elizabeth Taylor Twitters

by at . Comments

Today at 10 a.m. PST (1 p.m. EST), the Staples Center in Los Angeles will be packed with thousands of people for Michael Jackson's memorial service.

An all-star lineup will be on hand to perform and honor the music icon. Ex-wife Debbie Rowe will be a no-show, though. As will one of his best friends.

Yesterday afternoon, Elizabeth Taylor, 77, Tweeted that she wants nothing to do with this "whoopla." She feels her grief is private and "between us."

More importantly, though, who knew Elizabeth Taylor Twittered?

It makes perfect sense that the acclaimed actress is not going, as the big I memorial is more for Michael's fans, and for his true friends who knew him well and are truly grieving (i.e. not Miley Cyrus), it probably seems a bit over the top.

We'll see how bad it actually becomes. If the "public whoopla" involves a red carpet and a celebrity fashion analysis on Extra tonight, the apocalypse is near.
