“WILL THIS CEREMONY BRING CLOSURE TO HIS FANS?” “AH YES, KAY… IT WILL”

IIf you’re not watching the live coverage of Michael Jackson’s funeral on Sky News then, seriously, turn it on. The fan interviews are priceless… So random redneck couple, could you tell us why Michael Jackson’s music means so much to you? “Uh… Michael Jackson is the King of Pop.” “Yeah, he’s the King of Pop.” Right. And why did you bring a pile of his records? “This is a historic occasion… so I figured, you know, better bring the records.” N.B. Kay Burley has now said “it was difficult to love him, difficult not to love him” 13 times!

    Flicked over couple of times, first time saw Al Sharpton doing his thing, switched off. Second time, Jermaine singing with one stud encrusted glove (made it himself or got it in the will ?).

    Will youtube the best of this fiasco later.

    Least they used an old picture of Michael in the background.
