Also strange that both were not "buried" right away. For Brown 76 days, for MJ 71 days (if anyone thinks he was actually buried/ interred).   ;)

James Brown had lived a pretty full life and was in the hospital for a short time before he passed.  I would expect more tears at MJ's funeral because he was still very young, and it was unexpected.

So true! I don't know how in the world they were able to keep from bawling. When my family and I watched that memorial it was like sheer hell. It felt like someone was driving a scorching hot knife through my heart. The family's ways and reactions are what make me believe a hoax is possible.

Here's what i watched and what made me feel the difference:

Public service, Augusta 2006

Rev. Al Sharpton, MJ, JB' daughter Deanna Brown speech

This is not actual JB funeral, here's the real funeral church service, as i guess:

when i heard YANA playing there... my heart jumped

However, i think the major OFF thing in MJ's funeral was the filming part. To this day I still cannot understand why to hire a Hollywood production company to film it and spend a fortune instead allowing CNN or any other TV company do it free of charge for the family...  And I thought... for the record, for the history perhaps. Same feeling I have for this picture:



Looks like a picture for the record.... record of 'death' or record of 'hoax'?... I tried to imagine these guys in years to come telling their kids: 'Look, Jimmy, it's me on MJ's funeral, that was fun!' and i cannot picture that!

I agree with those of you who say James Brown lived a long and complete life, had a health conditiong for quite some time before he passed and was an aged man with grown children.... So I too feel that MJ's sudden 'death' at the age 50 and 3 young children left behind would be emotionally far more devastating to accept... And I think that keeping the funeral 'private' (closed casket, no viewing, no public mourning at the event, no ntional flags for the coffin) means a lot more. If it was public it would be TOO REAL. People would CRY, and apparently that wasn't the plan. JMHO

So it could all be controlled (i.e. who/ what was shot).

I'll refer to the closed casket. If they said Michael's face was ok and no other religious reason existed, it was inadmissible not to leave fans to see him and say good-bye. After all they counted on the fans in different other situations . That's why i think there wasn't Michael's body inside the casket ...maybe another one's.

sosh

I agree with you Tiida11. All fans should have had a possibility to see one last glimpse of his face(body).

His family may have been against it, but it's one of those risks being famous. I think it's also part of an example function which MJ had

Whoa, I didn't know they took pictures of Elvis in his casket! See, this is why I find it so suspicious that they didn't have an open casket or maybe even a photo of Michael in the casket at their private service! When you see that person laying in their coffin that's when you know this is final - they're gone. The family had to have known that having the casket closed would have an impact on us! Did they really think this through? Why not let us SEE HIM one last time?

thank you tinker_bell for the links.

death is so very sad.

Maybe the family just wanted an ordered event something fitting of the King of Pop?

this was discussed before but i find it interesting

Jackson reportedly spent hours at the C.A.Reid funeral home the night Brown's memorial service and he asked lots of questions about the process of getting the body ready.

Jackson had no way of knowing his time would come so soon - but many who interacted with the singer at the private viewing and at Brown's funeral say he was quite interested about death and wanted to know the most intimate details.

Charles Reid recalls the wee hours of that late December morning when Michael Jackson showed up at his funeral home to pay his respects to James Brown.

"He actually stayed here for about 4 and a half hours," says Reid."The time he spent with him was out of the ordinary because normally a person comes in views and that's pretty well the end of it."

It was in one of his viewing rooms that the King of Pop spent those hours with James Brown. Reid says he was more than happy to give Jackson "private time" with Brown but he says there was more on Jackson's mind.

But Jackson's curiosity was peaked. Reid says he had lots of questions.

"There was various things he was interested in. He had a lot of questions that he had to ask in reference to Mr. Brown,also preparation and stuff of that nature."

This is very interesting indeed, thank you! I've never heard of it before. It was said MJ was very interested in human anatomy though, so it's hard to guess whether it was anything more than curiosity..
