Make That Change: Michael Jackson announced the name of his new personal manager, Sandy Gallin of Gallin-Morey Associates, on Tuesday. Gallin manages other pop icons including Neil Diamond, Dolly Parton and the Pointer Sisters, as well as comedian Andrew Dice Clay. Jackson's announcement comes on the heels of his sudden break with longtime adviser John Branca in July. Branca, a pop music attorney, had guided Jackson's career for several years. Jackson has been without a formal personal manager for the past two years, since he severed ties with former manager Frank Dileo after his last tour.
