Michael’s Pricey Funeral

Tuesday, November 10th, 2009

11-10-09MJ

Like his extravagant life, Michael Jackson’s funeral was lavish and expensive. TMZ has unearthed the financial details of his sendoff from documents unsealed by the court.

Michael Jackson’s Forest Lawn funeral costs total $855,730.31, according to documents just unsealed by the court. The costs for the Glendale Police Department and city support totaled $175,086.31, the internment $590,000 and upkeep of the mausoleum $88,500. The private security, lighting, piano and other rentals came to $176,020.31.

Surprisingly, the funeral wardrobe for the Jackson clan was a measly $1,975.50. Isn’t that about what Jermaine spends on a jacket? I would have expected this greedy bunch to shop at Armani,  Prada or Gucci and send the bill to Jacko’s estate.

Jacksons Showcase Their Reality

Friday, November 6th, 2009

11-06-09JJ

The hardest-working has-beens in show business are back with—what else?—a reality series. The Hollywood Reporter has announced that the A&E miniseries “The Jacksons: A Family Dynasty” will debut Dec. 13.

The six-part series features brothers Jackie, Jermaine, Tito and Marlon preparing for a concert tour, minus anyone named Jackson that people would actually pay to see. The official press release says the show “chronicles their lives as they cope with Michael’s drug-induced death in June,” which really means “they look for new ways to grab more of Michael’s money.”

A&E had originally planned this as a documentary special called “The Jacksons,” back when they had hopes of roping the still-living Michael into it. Now they’re making chicken salad out of chicken you-know-what, since most of the surviving Jacksons are behind in their child support. Jermaine is behind about 20 years.

Hangin’ With Papa Joe Will Cost Ya

If there’s anyone out there who’s always dreamed of spending an evening with the patriarch of the Jackson clan, here’s your big chance!

For only $3,000, you can purchase a “Platinum VIP” package from Fashion Designer Bian Variani, in collaboration with LVH magazine, Brenden Theatres and Seven&Company. What do you get for three grand?

Hits Daily Double reports this deal includes “private dinner with Mr. Joseph Jackson,” the opportunity to pose for photos, autographed copies of his book, “Joseph Jackson: Man in the Mirror, Father of the First Family of Music” and a screening of “This Is It” in Vegas on Oct. 27. Oh, and they throw in an invite to the opening night party at Palms Casino Resort’s Moon nightclub and a night in the hotel.

Who could resist this fabulous occasion, and the chance to spend time with an icon like Joe Jackson? Yeah, I’m being sarcastic, but you know some wacko Jacko fan with more money than sense will spring for it.

Two Jackson Docs In Trouble

Wednesday, August 19th, 2009

7-10-09MJ23

Two doctors who treated Michael Jackson are facing legal charges relating to the superstar’s death—and soon.

An L.A. law enforcement source has revealed to FoxNews.com that Dr. Conrad Murray could be arrested for manslaughter as soon as next week. Investigators are still probing the case, and are expected to execute one more search warrant, probably at a Los Angeles pharmacy.

Reportedly, Murray has admitted he gave Jackson an injection of intravenous anesthetic propofol just hours before his death. Propofol was at least a contributing factor in the 50-year-old entertainer’s death.

Also looking at future trouble is Jackson’s dermatologist, Dr. Arnold Klein, who is going to be charged with medical malpractice. Klein has admitted giving the singer the painkiller Demerol. It’s certainly a positive thing that these doctors are being forced to answer for their actions, but as long as there are star-struck physicians and addicted celebs, this won’t be the last story to end this way.

Jackson To Be Buried On Birthday

Tuesday, August 18th, 2009

8-18-09MJ

More than two months after his sudden death, Michael Jackson will finally be laid to rest.

Jackson family spokesperson Ken Sunshine told Access Hollywood the King of Pop will be buried at a private ceremony on the Holly Terrace of the Great Mausoleum at Forest Lawn-Glendale on August 29, which would have been the day he turned 51. This location is separate from the Hollywood Hills Forest Lawn where the singer’s body was taken after his death.

Fans of the singer will be disappointed to learn that the Great Mausoleum is private and they will not be able to deliver flowers to Jackson’s final resting place.
