R.I.P. Michael Jackson: Make Sure You Mourn The Right Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame

RIGHT Michael Jackson -- the singer, who passed away today at the age of 50.

WRONG Michael Jackson -- the radio personality, who's still very much alive.

Sadly, though, you're gonna have to wait a day before you can actually visit the REAL Michael Jackson's star. It's currently covered up by "heavy equipment" -- because of tonight's premiere of "Bruno."

The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce is suggesting that mourners head to the Jacksons' star instead:

HOLLYWOOD, CALIF- Flowers will be placed on the Walk of Fame star of entertainer Michael Jackson tomorrow morning at 9 a.m. at 6927 Hollywood Boulevard. Due to an event occurring at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre where his star is located, the star for Jackson is covered. Because of heavy equipment near the area and for safety reasons press and fans will not be allowed in the area this evening. Anyone who would like to pay their respect to Michael Jackson can visit The Jacksons star which is located at 1500 Vine Street near Sunset.

The Chamber of Commerce, though, adds that you shouldn't start congregating around the star of the OTHER Michael Jackson:

The star located at 1541 Vine street is NOT the star of recording artist Michael Jackson who passed away today. The star at that address is for Radio Personality Michael Jackson.

The star for The Jacksons IS located at 1500 Vine Street.
