of course Al Sharpton has to put his face and name on the event… that guy is more annoying than Kate Gosselin and that is impossible -so i thought

@Rita:
the”douche”happens to be a great singer,a great artist and a person who learned a lot from Michael

Thank you for everything you’ve given us Michael – you’re truly a legend and a gift from God. You will never be forgotten and will always be loved. RIP

I’m shocked at how this is not a funeral but a public “event” ……I know when your name is MICHAEL JACKSON you get the best, but…..I don’t know, it amazes me. That said, I don’t want it to be too sad. I think death is just a path we all have to go through LOL. Why be sad? Why be scared? I never got it why some fear death. It’s not like some can avoid it haha. I’m not saying we’ll have to sing and dance tomorrow but …yeah, just feel happy that he is respected forever and will always be missed and well, a LEGEND. You know, it’s not like that for everybody…..I would have loved to be loved by so many people and have my funeral on every channels on tv XD

MJ wanted it to be a show. I guess if it’s what he wanted…

I find it random that the boy from Britain’s Got Talent will be there. I know he sang Who’s Loving You?, but still…

@Rita: John Mayer would go to the opening of an envelope to get his picture taken. I agree with you he’s a douche.
.
I wonder what LA will be like tomorrow? Duck and run is my best advice to those venturing out.

Its just me @ 07/06/2009 at 4:44 pm

On abcnews.com, they are saying that MJ will be buried at 8am Pacific Time at LA Forest Lawn Cemetery, There will probably be a throng of fans that will show up at his gravesite. I wouldn’t be surprised if there is a psychotic fan that tries to dig him up if there is no security there.

I hope Brooke Shields doesn’t want to sell stuff while she is there.

She is on TV enough hawking items.

No Diana Ross or Elizabeth Taylor? o__O
An odd list.

this is not a funeral…it is a memorial service…the funeral is private for the family.

R.I.P Soldier.
Thanks for the beats and the chills…you will be missed.

without diana ross?

NO MEMORIAL CONCERT ALL WAY @ 07/06/2009 at 5:01 pm

No this is the MICHAEL JACKSON CONCERT THAT PEOPLE WANTED
TO SEE SO SHOW HIS MUSIC VIDEO ON THE BIG SCREEN..
WHO NEEDS A FUNERAL HAVE A CONCERT INSTEAD AND DONATE
THE MONEY TO THE MICHAEL JACKSON FOUNDATION..

those r all the ppl?
i thought it would be filled with celebs
i guess ill tune in but not for long since im getting tired of all these MJ rumors

@Cooh: still a douche

i know it might not be right but, chris brown sure owed a lot to MJ. as did Justin. and as others have said…no Diana Ross or Liz Taylor…?

ohh, it will surely be a lovely tribute to an icon. i hope i could be there, but it seems impossible since i live in Chile and the tickets are way too expensive for me…

No Diana Ross, Quincy Jones?! Wait and see…
@ Marissa : JT !!! Are you serious ?? I’m glad he is not performing !!!!! No one has forgotten how he left Janet out there to take all of the blame during that Super bowl fiasco…It would be truly hypocritical…
I’d like to see Chris Brown, he’s the only young guy who could do it justice. Have you seen the ” Wall to Wall ” video ? and his 2007 vma performance ? The boy was showing respect to MJ !!! Damn he can move his legs !!!
Of course we all know what he did, but now he has to deal with it…, and he is human like we are, so who are we to judge…he should be able to perform in memory of his idol and inspiration.
R.I.P MJ !

I thought Orianthi Panagaris was going to be a part of this. I was looking forward to seeing Michael’s beautiful guitarist.
