After hanging out in the freezer for over two months, Michael Jackson is FINALLY being buried today in Glendale, California. So, why did it take so long? The reality show his brothers are filming had to get it scheduled of course. MSNBC reports:
Jackson’s body will be placed in the Holly Terrace section of the Great Mausoleum, which, according to a source who has seen the burial site, “looks like a cathedral.” Part of the Mausoleum in below ground, part above. Jackson will be placed above ground. Aside from immediate family, expect Jackson family confidants, such as Rev. Al Sharpton, to attend the 4 p.m. PT burial. A family source confirms that Debbie Rowe, Prince and Paris Jackson’s mother, was invited to attend, but at press time she hadn’t confirmed whether she’d be there. As for the ceremony itself, “it won’t be a religious one,” according to the family source. “The kids (Paris, Prince and Blanket) might say something, too, but the plan is to have (Jackson’s brother) Randy deliver the eulogy.” The family has said it wants this to be a private event; however, sources close to the clan say to expect to see “private” portions surface on the A&E reality show about the Jackson brothers that is currently being taped.
There’s no telling what the ceremony is gonna entail, but it’s the Jacksons. I’m sure the coffin will have stickers on it like it’s in a NASCAR race and his brothers will be dancing around a new Ford Focus, because the Focus doesn’t skimp on safety. In fact, it’s packed with safety technologies you might expect to find only in those bigger, more expensive cars!
Awww, how sweet.
Since looking for pictures of a dead guy whose been in a meat locker for two months isn’t really my thing, and since it was so much fun yesterday, here’s Denise Milani and an inconvenient blanket:
