MJs Funeral: A Celebration
Michael Jackson’s Neverland Ranch sendoff is tipped to eclipse the funerals of Princess Di and Elvis. As many as a million people are set to descend on Los Angeles to remember the King of Pop.
According to Perezhilton.com, it’s been confirmed that MJs body will be driven to Neverland Ranch on Thursday morning to prepare the body for a public viewing on Friday.
Patriarch Joe Jackson, has commented that a proper family funeral would follow the results of a second autopsy. “We’re not ready for that yet because we’re trying to wait on something else. We’re searching to see what happened to Michael.”
After speaking with Jackson's family, Civil Rights Leader, Rev Al Sharpton explained.
“It is the determination of the family to be careful and deliberate on how they plan his celebration of life because we’re talking about a historic figure that really changed pop culture around the world. This is not something you do carelessly and spontaneously.”
The Jackson family are also discussing the possibility of burying the icon’s body at Neverland, which was allegedly Michael’s wish. Although the Moonwalker had not lived at the ranch since he was cleared of child molestation charges in 2005, the idea appeals to the owners of the mortgage as a tourist shrine could help pay off Jackson’s crippling debts.
However MJ’s family decide to say goodbye, one thing is for sure – it will be a send off of massive proportions, and everyone will be watching.
