If there had been no public memorial service people would be complaining.
The REAL tragedy is something we actually can't appreciate because we aren't members of MJ's family. THAT is the real tragedy - having personally known him and lost him.
MJ's family could so easily have decided to not have a public memorial at all. Dealing with grief is hard enough - to decide do it publicly - and now - for the fans sake, is pretty brave.
Or was it maybe to promote themselves by exploiting the little girl in front of a billion people around the world? Which is precisly what Michael tried to avoid happening all these years as thats WHY he was a very unhappy person, because thats what his family did to him!
The girl was not in a right frame of mind to make that kind of disision, the kids should have attended by all means but been keep in the background, not paraded around in front of the world.
KFC was promoted 5 times!
The family will be on the bandwagon cashing in on Michael,s name and his death.
They were going broke before this happened and even resorted to entering the Big Brother house! (which is well known for Z listers trying to gain puplicity to reinvent themselves)
Biographies will be everywhere, they are already planning to tour more than likely, his dads set up a new entertaintment business already, his mothers fighting for control of his cash, family members were said to be rummaging through his house hours after he died looking for cash....
Sadly, that is the Jacksons family.
Which is why Michael was so messed up and his kids should be protected from them.
All this and he,s not even been buried yet!
