Michael Jackson is finally buried. After dying June 25th. Buried 70 days later. That's some bull right there, but now he is buried.

Let's see...a private viewing July 6th, then a memorial service of family and friends July 7th, then going to the public memorial July 7th at the Staple center and then the actual burial last night.

The burial last night was star studded with Elizabeth Taylor, Lisa Marie Presley,  Chris Tucker,  Macaulay Culkin and his girlfriend Mila Kulas. Performers included we are told Stevie Wonder, Gladys Knight, and Aretha Franklin.

Let me say this...I am glad he is buried. Finally. I don't understand the whole 5 limos and the big Italian restaurant in Pasadena after the burial service.  I am upset that it took so much time to get him buried. From infighting and other things. I understand time was needed for the autopsy but after that, it should have been taken care of, but it wasn't.  Was the family trying to milk Michael maybe thinking the press would not care about them anymore?

Give Jermaine time to try to put together tribute concerts that cost an arm and a leg? Give Latoya enough time to make a video? Give Joe more time to pimp his record label? Janet has been silent during all this but I would not be surprised in time she admits being upset by the way things were handled.

I am happy he is finally buried but upset at the not so classy way it was handled. The Jackson family really is something else.

  1. My partner and I stumbled over here by a different website and thought I might check things out.

    I like what I see so now i am following you. Look forward to looking into your web page for a second time.

  2. Michael = Rachel Marron
    Jermaine = Nicki
    “The Bodyguard”

  3. I think I’m done with all the MJ stuff. Let’s just let the man rest in PEACE for real.
    I don’t think there was a way they could have done it w/o it being a circus. But now that he’s finally buried, I hope that everyone feels a sense of closure. The world keeps on turning. People got to move on…and just celebrate the legacy of great music he left us.

  4. Money has drove that family absolutly insane just pain nasty.GEE

  5. R.I.P Michael ….. Gone way to Soon.

  6. Every family has their issues when someone dies and they had one of the most famous people in the world pass in their family…..shit pookie and junior might kill each other just where to bury their momma and what she should wear in her casket..let alone…who is gonna get the raggedy house on 54th street…so..there is always and I mean ALWAYS drama in any family and with any death….sorry but I actually think they handled it very well…..I think the burial was due to the fact that the coroner wasn’t finished with all of his body…part of his brain..plus they had other toxicology test’s done…so who knows what they needed from the body and how long that took..not to mention that they probably had to wait for a court date to find out if the estate would pay for his burial…not to mention the fact that they had to scout locations to find a safe secure place for him to be buried…and then I”m sure there were tons of disagreements…those that talked about making money off of him as opposed to just letting him rest……

  7. I totally agree with you Doc. This is just plain ridiculous. And I doubt that Michael would have wanted it this way.

  8. I think Jermaine is full of it (most of the time)..
    Not sure why LaToya had to make a video (it is nice, though..) — since all proceeds from the iTunes download goes to one of the charities MJ supported (AIDS Project LA).

    As for the funeral, the family didn’t have enough cash to pay for everything up front for the burial and service — I read yesterday that a judge had to ok the payments to be made via the estate (I saw somebody say on the news last nite that the local PD [Glendale?] also got a check for $120K).
    – not to mention the infighting over where he’d be buried.. which I don’t understand; the decision should have rested with Katherine to begin with.
    And while a Gaceland-like Neverland would have been nice — for fans — I would have felt bad if the land had been re-zoned so that a burial could take place; he made it quite clear that Neverland was no longer home to him, that he’d visit, maybe, but did not ever want to live there again.

  9. Dear Dr. Funkenberry,

    thanks for your words, u tell it like it is.
    Most people try to avoid that but not here.

    Well.. Rip Michael and thank you for your music.
