Michael Jackson's Grand Farewell

7/7/2009 1:28 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson's Grand FarewellMichael Jackson will create even more pandemonium in death than he did in life -- his body will take center stage at Tuesday's public memorial at the Staples Center in downtown L.A.

The family will hold a private memorial early in the morning at Forest Lawn -- where the body is now. The coffin will then be transported to Staples for what promises to be one of the biggest spectacles in L.A. history.

We will be live streaming everything as it happens beginning early in the AM.

OMG - they have decided to bring Michael's body to Staples after all, this is good for those who have tickets, but the pandemonium downtown I would not want to witness. I will visit his grave at Forest Lawn sometime later, and watch the memorial on TV ...... Peace & Love to All The Jackson Fans - Be Careful Tomorrow Where Ever You Are!!!

Is anyone else watching the streaming video? There is footage of a hearse from more than an hour ago and then what looks like another about 20 mins ago. Please tell me someone else saw this.

For the sake of the children    

Eewww!!! MJ's been sold out by his whole family! Can't they just bury him already and let him be?

Next we'll be reading they're digging up his body to cremate him and placing his ashes for viewing at Neverland and charging admission. You can predict his family's actions based on the fact they'll do ANYTHING for money with regards to Michael.

I'm probably going to watch the circus on tv tomorrow and I'm already feeling like it's going to be exploitation of the dead, a show that will be taped and sold for profit all in the name of a "memorial".

#20...did you see the hearse back into the hall tiwice? The second time, it looked like they unloaded the hearse instead of putting a casket in. I'm praying the family doesn't use a decoy casket at the memorial service tomorrow. I hate to think of him being paraded around like that.
