Michael Jackson’s Family Divided Over Funeral Arrangements

    Oh, Joe Jackson. First you exercise massive and oppressive control over your son’s early career, and now you insist on doing it again in death? According to Perez Hilton, the Jackson Family is at odds over how to truss up (or not, as the case may be) their son’s funeral and memorial. Joe Jackson and Michael’s brothers are vying for an open casket funeral, which would be driven through the streets where fans can then toss floral arrangements on to Michael’s casket. Katherine Jackson on the other hand, along with her daughters Janet and LaToya, are much more in favor of a closed casket arrangement at Los Angeles’ Staples Center, where the only posh and glamour would lie in a sequined glove and black fedora to rest on top of Michael’s casket.
