Michael Jackson Laid to Rest

More than two months after the King of Pop suddenly died, his remains were finally laid to rest Thursday night. Braving 90-degree heat, black-garbed mourners—including Elizabeth Taylor and Barry Bonds—gathered to pay their last respects at a private funeral on the grounds of the star-studded Forest Lawn Glendale Cemetery outside Los Angeles. Jackson's body, encased in a golden casket, is being entombed in a towering marble mausoleum, where he'll spend eternity alongside celebrities like Clark Gable and Jean Harlow. The site will be off-limits to fans in an effort to keep it from being transformed into a shrine. In early July, Jackson's elaborate public memorial at the Staples Center was viewed by millions.
