Michaels father Joe Jackson held a press conference with the Rev. Al Sharpton today, and it was every bit the understated and dignified affair as that made it sound. Is that a giant purple gorilla behind them? You know it brother. Fox News says…
“After plugging his record company, Michael Jackson’s father Joe said in a press conference outside his home Monday that the family was planning a large public funeral for the deceased singer.
Joe Jackson says planning for a funeral will await a finding (from a) second autopsy to be conducted on the King of Pop’s body, which they said is already underway.
But Joe Jackson says the funeral will not be closed to the public, as his son would likely have wanted a similar type of service.”
Yeah, when I think about Michael Jackson over the past 20 years, that’s what I picture. Always out in public, in the middle of big crowds, happy as can be. He’d also want to charge those people to get in to the funeral. And he’d be really honored if you were to buy an I Was There t-shirt. And he would want the concession stand to have a sense of humor, so a small hot dog would be called a “Kids Wiener”, and the “price you have to pay” is 8 million dollars each. But a large hot dog is $4.50, so it’s just a joke. You can still get a hot dog at the funeral.
