I loved Elizabeth Taylor's statement on the 25th of June when asked for her initial reaction to Michael's death. She said that she was devastated, etc., etc., and that she was in the midst of packing to go to London for Michael's first concert, which was scheduled for the 13th of July.

Elizabeth is nothing if not prepared. She was packing for London three weeks in advance?
