Special Report: Michael Jackson's Funeral Extravaganza

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

A lucky Racked operative was one of the 8,750 people worldwide to score tickets to Michael Jackson's public memorial in downtown LA. She sends us these photos of mourners on the scene, resplendent in everything from homemade tees to full-on homages to MJ's iconic costumes (most of which also appear to be homemade). She's currently inside the service, and we'll have a more complete report of the sartorial tributes later today.
