Joe JacksonHow better to celebrate Michael Jackson's would-be 51st birthday than by burying him?

That's the plan, at least according to his dad, Joe Jackson. The family statesman told the NY Daily News that Jackson will finally be laid to rest on August 29 at Forest Lawn Cemetery.

Joe told the paper the burial plans were just finalized over the past few days.

We've been told Jackson's body is being kept above ground at Forest Lawn and is being kept in a freezer.
