I had thought that when Lily Allen wore one glove 'in tribute' to Michael Jackson during her Glastonbury performance it was in kind of a kitsch fashion; meant in the same way that someone might wear shelltoes to a hip hop night and say they were 'retroooo' whilst nodding their head. But instead it seems she was just abiding by the protocol with the Jackson family. The only difference being that they were issued with spangly gloves rather than just straight white ones. The whole family wore shimmering chainmail mittens on one hand. I can only guess it was a gesture to symbolise that Michael kept a lot of his body covered up during his life.
