While some people are willing to sell their first born to get in to the Michael Jackson public memorial, there's one lady who's refusing to attend.
"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," she Twittered(!).
Liz says she was asked to speak at the memorial, but declined.
"I cannot be part of the public whoopla," she writes. "And I cannot guarantee that I would be coherent to say a word. I will always love Michael from the depth of my being and nothing can separate us. My love goes out to Katherine and Michael's beloved children."
Say what you will about the pairing of Liz and Michael -- 'cause it's definitely strange -- but it seems to have been very genuine.
