Michael Jackson’s Big Top Memorial Service

July 7th, 2009 // 70 Comments

Well, the Michael Jackson Memorial Service is about to commence, so here’s some pics from the scene complete with commentary in the captions. And, yes, those are elephants down there along with miniature ponies. Because what better way to honor Michael’s life than having a bunch of zoo animals crap around his coffin? There’s a metaphor in that somewhere.

Rest in Peace, Michael.

    How fukking Hypocritical can the superficial writer(s) can get?
    In this article you say r.i.p in the previous one you said and I quote
    “the important thing to remember is at least nobody’s kids are getting touched. By Michael Jackson anyway”
    I wish you a slow & horrid death!

    I’m sick of watching this soap opera death of a fucking child molester. Fuck Michael Jackson, his family of fucking weirdos, and any other shitty celebrity using his death to get back in the spotlight.

    may michael jackson finally rest in peace… and I hope people respect his family. No matter what people think his children deserve to live a normal life and shouldn’t have to hurt because of all the awful things people can say.. may god bless his family!!!
    Rest in peace michael jackson

  4. The only thing i can remember of the ceremony is how JENNIFER HUDSON BLOWED AWAY MARIA CAREY with her Parkison moves

    I hope MJ shit is over soon. This guy was a good singer and a good dancer and that is ALLL the value he had. He DID nothing of any value, never SAID anything of value and helped kids financially with one hand and molested them with the other. Yet I’ve heard him being referred to as a “Civil Rights Icon”. Gimme an effin break. Only in this great country of ours could a dancing child molester who was a completely MESSED up individual be considered a civil rights icon. No wonder nobody respects Americans. God help us.

    This is what this country has come to, Gregory #55. Americans were more concerned about Jackson than the war or what our president was doing over the last week. This is why we are losing our positino as the world leader – the people have no sense of what is of true importance andvalue.

    Most of all,the memorial service is for his family,loved ones and fans.To let their tears and grieve go and after that to go on with their lives.For the one who’s death,it doesn’t matter much.

    Let the dead bury the dead.

    @60 That explains pretty much why the city of LA has to pay the costs.

    When watching Michael Jackson’s coffin being pushed away by the Jackson Brothers, was anybody else reminded of those two words…

    Cool Runnings.

    For everyone that is saying that only black people liked this guy you are sadly mistaken. People were crowded in Germany, Ireland, Japan, Russia, etc….. Not to mention the crowds of white people in Times Square.

    So get your facts straight, this guy was loved by people in every country which is impressive. No other musician can touch that.

    I’m white by the way.

    Hey #62… That is funny! I am still laughing at that!

    Please the whole thing was such pomp and circumstance. What about the fake tears from his daughter and Janet trying to be the one consoling her.. God the whole thing was a huge waste of time. It was all a stage performance.

    I will always remember MJ from the 1st time I saw him when I was a teenager in the UK and he was a young boy singing ‘Ben’ – he touched my heart on that day, but the last decade or so of his life was very strange indeed & to me very sad. There was no need for him to change his appearance so drastically, he must have had such self-hatred & self-rejection to go thru such discomfort & pain to change his facial features like that & turn his skin white. He was such a handsome guy & he turned into somethng awful, like a halloween mask – very very sad!! Also his memorial was jst far too much and what on earth was all the dark sunglasses for?? They looked so ridiculous! They acted as if they were royalty, not jst a family in mourning. It was a typical ott american show that reminded me more of Pentecostalism with their loud mouths and pantomiming with some good theatrical performances – it makes them and the show look jst so fake. Could not watch it all as it was becoming a little too sickly sweet & repellent and far too prolonged – they were worshipping him as if he was some sort of god – gross!! Well he certainly was no god, as gods are physically immortal and Michael wasn’t! He may live on forever in ppl’s memories like Elvis & John Lennon etc… but I want to remember him, as he was when I 1st heard him as a little boy singing “Ben” in the 1970′s, not this ott pretentious performance that I saw on TV ystrdy – it became a bit of a joke and that’s the last thing MJ needed again at his memorial.

  17. I thought it was a parody of itself.

    That girl might have actually been crying but I bet someone engineered it that way.

    Al Sharpton:
    “Just say ‘forever’ over and over. Saps will eat that shit up! And get one of those kids to cry on TV. That’ll make an EXCELLENT soundbyte!”

    …later that same day…

    Jermaine Jackson:
    “…and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, infinity.”

  18. Please whole thing was so much pomp and circumstance. Janet fake tears for her daughter and console her .. What about the one trying to be everything God had a big waste of time. It was a stage performance.
