At long last, the King of Pop was laid to rest tonight within the Great Mausoleum at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, Calif.
Macaulay Culkin and Mila Kunis, Elizabeth Taylor, Lisa Marie Presley, Quincy Jones, Berry Gordy, Gladys Knight, the Rev. Al Sharpton, Corey Feldman, Chris Tucker, Kenny Ortega, Marlon Brando's son Miko and baseball star Barry Bonds were among those who braved the stifling San Fernando Valley heat to bid Michael Jackson a final goodbye, more than two months after his tragic death at the age of 50.
Rows of white chairs were set up for the mourners on the lawn right outside the mausoleum, which is not visible from the cemetery's main gate.
But Culkin, Presley, the 77-year-old Taylor and close to 200 others had to wait for the arrival of the family motorcade, which didn't even set out for Forest Lawn until 7:30 p.m., a half-hour after the service's scheduled start time.
