Michael Jackson will be buried on his birthday
We guess earlier reports that Michael Jackson had been buried were premature, as Joe Jackson confirms the King of Pop will be laid to rest on his birthday, the New York Daily News reports. They can sell more memorial t-shirts that way.
MJ's 80-year-old dad says that the performer will be buried in a private ceremony at L.A.'s Forest Lawn on Aug. 29, when Michael would have turned 51. That will be about two months after his death on June 25.
Joe was nice enough to discuss the plans with the paper over ribs and corn bread at the Palms in Las Vegas, and to have a woman named Crystal Marven with him. Marven is a singer he has signed to his new record label, and just happened to be around when he was talking to a Daily News reporter. All class, that one.
