Pop legend Michael Jackson's sister Janet has dismissed reports that she will appear as a surprise guest at the tribute concerts to mark her late brother's birth anniversary August 29.

Janet was reportedly lined up to open the performances at London's O2 Arena, where Jacko was due to play 50 dates before his tragic death June 25, reported femalefirst.co.uk. A representative for Janet, however, said that the singer will not perform as the concerts aren't "about her".

"Janet has plenty going on as it is - she's filming a movie ('Why Did I Get Married Too') and she's involved in Michael's kids' lives. These concerts are not about her and she respects that. She's always been independent," said the spokesperson.

But the Jackson brothers - Jermaine, Jackie, Tito and Marlon Jackson - will give two special performances, the first of which will be played on Michael's birthday.
