Michael’s burial details

-Michael Jackson will be buried at a Los Angeles cemetery today shortly before a gala tribute to the pop icon at the Staples Center, the city’s acting mayor said. The funeral will take place at Forest Lawn Cemetery two hours before the memorial service at the downtown Staples Center. This is the same cemetery where Lucille Ball, Ed Mc Mahon, Liberachi and a host of others were buried. It’s said that he will be put to rest in a $25,000, solid bronze, 14-karat gold plated, custom casket. This is the same rare casket used to bury James Brown.

-It was originally thought that Michael’s body would be at the Staples Center for fans to mourn but the family refused. Jackson’s death has unleashed a flurry of fan tributes and media attention, raising fears that his funeral would turn into a circus. What seems most important to MJ’s family and close friends is that he is put to rest with dignity and respect. His life was a media circus, they did not want his memorial to be the same.
