    FINALLY! Thanks Perez :)

    Service? like in a church?



  3. 3

    The staples Center doesnt seem appropriate to me :/

    It would have to be at the Staples Center or somewhere equally large in order to accommodate the thousands upon thousands of friends and family members as well as the fans who loved him dearly. Now if only they could keep the people who spent the last decade slandering him from gaining entrance, those who truly loved him could say goodbye to the King of Pop. It's a sad occasion and I am glad he will finally be given some peace, at least in body.

    I bet he doesn't even need embalming fluid

    R.I.P. Michael

    He was sanpaku! Too much yin :(

    Tickets to a memorial service? (I saw that on your previous post). This is so sad. Who would make money off of such a sad day as that? It is a service, not a program.

    Have a tribute and sell tickets if you must, but not for a memorial service. Sheesh! And I agree, not an appropriate place for a memorial. So sad.

    The entire "hoolpla" over Michael Jackson's death & funeral is just ridiculous!!!!
    Seriously, does anyone (other than some insanely rabid MJ fan) really care?!?

    real classy to have it at staples center! i mean i guess they need a huge venue but it seems like it cheapens the whole thing esp if they will be charging admission fees.



  12. 12

    =X !!!!!

    I'll be there. And don't even attempt to show up Perez. That would be one of the most disrespectful things that you could ever do after all of the hateful things that you have said about Michael. Michael will be there in spirit looking down on us fan's and people who actually loved and understood him. I would hate for him to have to see people there "supporting" him now, after they have been the one's dogging him out for years. God bless his children, family, and devoted fans. I received my email today to get my refund for my ticket to his concerts and it was one of the hardest things that I had to do. Michael deserves to be hear on earth w/ his 3 beautiful children. I miss him dearly.

    I doubt they're holding a FUNERAL at Staples, but a SERVICE of sorts, or a memorial. It would put a damper on future ticket sales to know there's a dead body buried under the bleachers.



  15. 15

    In regards to my last comment… they sent me an email to get a refund for the same ticket that you told us fan's the day Michael passed to get b/c Michael was "faking".. remember that Perez?? Your a heartless person, the funny thing is w/ Michael being the forgiving person that he is he would forgive you for saying that, as well as all of the other hurtful things that you have said along the years. DON'T GO TO THE MEMORIAL PEREZ BECAUSE YOU DIDN'T CARE ABOUT MICHAEL AT ALL.



  16. 16

    Perez, you shouldn't post anything about Michael Jackson's death unless you apologize for accusing him to fake his death to get publicity for his show. Once and for all, take responsibility for your words.



  17. 17

    Omg it never ends how people are! This is sad when they "charge his fans" to pay thier respects. What the hell is wrong with this world its so gone to crap? Who is thier right mind would make someone pay to see them after they have passed? Its a very sick world we live in. I wonder just who gets all the monies from this? Poor Micheal even in death hes going to be used in such a way. I dont know what is worse all these people who are coming out of the woodwork with all thier BS stories Or this funeral. What really ticks me off is he did everything in his power to keep his private life just that private! And yet all the yahoo's that he kept at his side are just spilling out all his biz on tv. Goes to show you just how people are when it comes to the rich and famous. Anything to get thier 15 minutes of fame right? Dont matter how he would have felt about it as long as all you scum get your shinning moment. How sick can they be.



  18. 18

    MJ. Word. There 100%.



  19. 19

    if this is confirmed then i'd like to see a jackson family statement, considering last time it was confirmed that there would be a memorial today and that didnt happen now either perez did it?

    and mj fan i agree totally…stay away from his funeral perez…not that you would be invited to anything private or anything. you are so fake to talk shit all the time and thhen act like you care once hes dead. dont come to the public memorial to take up space when there are people who actually like him and have been behind him that want to get in.



  20. 20

    Tickets should be free. Michael loved his fans I doubt he would want to charge them to say good bye. Well except for when he was doing the this is it concert.



  21. 21

    You mean he's still dead?



  22. 22

    Reposting what someone else said because it is TRUE
    Perez, you shouldn't post anything about Michael Jackson's death unless you apologize for accusing him to fake his death to get publicity for his show. Once and for all, take responsibility for your words.
    And you definitely shouldn't be posting anything in the manner you posted this - with exclamation marks flying as if you are breaking some big story. He's already dead Perez. You are announcing a funeral service.
    Can't you quit acting like an asshole for 5 minutes?

    children 12 and under get in free!



  24. 24

    Don't worry, even Perez can't be that stupid. It would be the absolute dumbest thing Perez could do. Showing up in the middle of thousands of people who truly loved Michael would get him worse than a punch in the eye.



  25. 25

    Even dead they're still tryin' to make a buck off him…. sad.



  26. 26

    Tickets? That just sounds so wrong.

    If I were in LA/had the money, I'd be there in a flash.
    Whyyy, Northern BC, do you ruin everything??



  27. 27

    Re: Disturbed

    Why does anyone thinK Perez would want to attend the funeral? Being surrounded by a bunch of insane MJ wackjobs (err, mean Fans) doesn't sound like a fun time to me!



  28. 28

    Doesn't the use of three exclamation points seem inappropriate in a headline about a funeral to you, Mario?



  29. 29

    pedophile in a box…america's new collector's item



  30. 30

    does this headline really call for 3 exclamation points?
    have some class.



  31. 31

    Hey Perez how the fuck does my family rent the Staples Center to hold a memorial service when i die?? Who the fuck is paying for this memorial service i thought MJ's ass was broke….



  32. 32

    it's a real shame that they are pimping out his death like this, it's discusting!!!! As private as he was and tried to be, do you really think he would have wanted this??!!



  33. 33

    $25 a ticket…



  34. 34

    finally!! but is there word on whether or not it will be shown on TV??



  35. 35

    Thanks for the beautiful picture Perez! I think this is the best I've ever seen.



  36. 36

    RIP… You take fragrant the good things in life and don’t realize how great they really are until there gone. Michael made music amazing and fun, how will it ever be the same now????



  37. 37

    Listen to "T.L." and close your eyes for me 46



  38. 38

    Re: MJ fan59 – you sound really crazy. you don't know him enough to miss him dearly. that feeling is for heart-close people. unless he's fondled your genitals and u think that is awsome and"dear", you don't know him at all. you hon are a nutjob



  39. 39

    Re: wickedcatincanada
    Re: 38

    The majority of these MJ Fans are NUTJOBS! If thisishow they react to death, I'd hate to see how they would react when some they "ACTUALLY" know dies!



  40. 40

    They say there are going to be services around the country. God bless Michael may he RIP.



  41. 41

    Will someone please administer DEPRAVAN to me? Revive me when this MJ slobfest is over with.
