Michael Jackson Latest News

Michael Jackson last Goodbye
At long last, the King of Pop—cooler than ever after being on ice for two months—is going to be laid to rest tonight within the Great Mausoleum at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, Calif.

Macaulay Culkin and Mila Kunis, Elizabeth Taylor, Lisa Marie Presley, Quincy Jones, Gladys Knight (who was planning to sing), the Rev. Al Sharpton, Corey Feldman, Chris Tucker, Kenny Ortega, Miko Brando and baseball star Barry Bonds were among those who braved the stifling San Fernando Valley heat to bid Michael Jackson a final goodbye, more than two months after his tragic death at the age of 50.

Rows of white chairs have been set up for the mourners on the lawn right outside the mausoleum, which is not visible from the cemetery's main gate. A portrait of Jackson faces the crowd.

But Culkin, Presley, the 77-year-old Taylor and close to 200 others had to wait for the arrival of the family motorcade, which didn't even set out for the cemetery until 7:30 p.m., a half-hour after the service's scheduled start time.

Jackson's children, Prince Michael, Paris and Blanket, parents Joe and Katherine, sisters Janet, La Toya and Rebbie Jackson and his five brothers were eventually all in attendance, with the kids taking seats in the front row, facing a portrait of their father.

The family had commissioned a fleet of Rolls Royce Phantoms and Cadillacs to ferry them from the family compound in Encino to the cemetery, and ultimately 31 vehicles made the trip.

Jermaine, Marlon, Randy, Tito and Jackie each donned one sparkly white glove apiece in tribute to their fallen brother, as they did at his memorial extravaganza back in July.

Jackson's family had originally planned to say their latest round of final goodbyes on Aug. 29, which would have been the artist's 51st birthday, but the burial was postponed for unexplained reasons.

Katherine Jackson has since successfully petitioned the court for funds from her late son's estate to pay for the interment and reimburse the city for security services.

Jackson's crypt is in the mausoleum's Holly Terrace section, where his neighbors include old-school stars like Clark Gable, Carole Lombard and Jean Harlow
