According to TMZ.com,the casket,called a Promethean,will feature a blue velvet interior and a hand-polished,mirror finish.
The casket is similar to the one in which soul singer James Brown was buried.
In fact,Jackson saw the casket in person when he paid tribute to the singer,as he lay in state in New York City’s Apollo Theatre.
Reports suggest that Jackson’s funeral will be held on July 7 at the Staples Centre.
And it is believed that Jacko will be laid to rest at Forest Lawn Memorial Park,and not at his beloved Neverland Ranch,as was previously speculated.
