Rest in peace, Michael Jackson.

The star-studded crowd is arriving at Michael Jackson's funeral -- Liz Taylor, Barry Bonds, Macaulay Culkin, Mila Kunis, Chris Tucker, Al Sharpton and more...

Meanwhile, the family has still not left their Encino compound.

Does the fashionably late rule apply to a funeral?!

Noticed in the crowd, celebrity hair stylist Nick Chavez, with Suzanne DePasse. Did he do Jacko's wigs?

Now that Wacko is planted, maybe we can get on to the next celebrity train wreck. Watching a death spiral is like seeing a Greek tragedy unfold before you eyes. You know fom the start how it's gonna end up.... badly.

According to the "Center on Hunger and Poverty", California ranks as the 15th worst state for hunger and homeless people. How can the Jackson family make a circus out of their son's death?

I am so glad to see Liz Taylor on board with this. It was shame that she was too classy to make it to the memorial.

A fan    

TMZ, find out if Debbie was included and is there. Hopefully she is. She is the mother of two of his children.
What about Diana Ross?
And Arnold Klein. He was Michael's friend.


wait, what? Corey aka dressed like Michael at the memorial Feldman is there? Wasn't this an invitation only funeral? Michael and Corey had a falling out years ago, he shouldn't be there.

Oh and hopefully the Deepak Chopra family is NOT there and WAS NOT invited. For saying they were Michael's 'friend', both father and son both went on TV right after Michael's death to badmouth Michael at every turn. We all know if Michael could speak to us now, he would NEVER want them anywhere around him or his family.

I still say Michael would not want to be buried in a place where his fans could not pay their respects. Michael should be at Neverland.

Love MJ    

HiGuys, sorry was away for a while there, so don'nt know what i missed on other thread. Had to get a bottle of wine( Jesus Juice ) absolutely could not watch anymore without it! Am in Ireland so it's the middle of the night with us. Can't miss this for the world, my heart is breaking, can't believe it's really happening... i actually was watching that silly video of someone jumping out of the coroners van, WE WISH! I really was saying to my husband, "It's really weird,wait, til you see the legs, " i said", they do look like his legs, They Do. I know it's awful but even Michael couldn;t fool his fans sometimes, it is scary. I cant believe im even saying this. I was in Bahrain, remember, in th4 hotelm, ritz
