Should Michael Jackson recieve an official state funeral?

I say YES YES YES without a doubt, these are preserved for "heads of states" or national heros of significant importance, and Michael Jackson had more of an impact on American culture, and it's export to the rest of the world than any president since Kennedy. He is an absolute BLACK, American, global ICON, the GREATEST ENTERTAINER to grace this earth hands down!!!

R.I.P Mike

His body deserves to lay in state at the U.S Congress IMO*** \

If Elvis got one (I don't know if he did or not) then I suppose it's not an unreasonable thing to suggest.

1. I'm pretty sure Elvis did not get a state funeral

2. Elvis didn't molest children or threaten to drop a baby out of his hotel room.

Didnt Elvis date priscilla when she was 13 ...? remind me or you are too brainless to answer ?

Well if Elvis or any important figure of popular culture didnt get a national funeral ..then i dont think michael should have ..i prefer a funeral like james Brown , just in a bigger stadium ..
