Whitney Houston's funeral is going to be online

Good news for those of you who can't make it out to New Jersey for Whitney's Houston's funeral on Saturday. It'll be streamed online. How very . . . profitable of her estate. From CNN:
The services, to be held at New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, will be in a much smaller, more intimate setting than the concert halls and arenas Houston packed during her heyday. In every sense, she will be going home.

Publicists and entertainers by Wednesday had confirmed nearly a dozen celebrities and personalities will be in some of the 1,500 coveted, "invitation-only" seats. Actor Kevin Costner, who starred with Houston in the movie "The Bodyguard," will speak, and singers Stevie Wonder and Aretha Franklin -- Houston's godmother -- will perform, according to a source with knowledge of the funeral plans.
Also attending the funeral will be Chris Brown (he'll do the ceremonial punching of the coffin). Whitney's spirit was scheduled to attend but unfortunately had to cancel because she's getting high as a motherfucker with Amy Winehouse right now. Seriously, you think ghosts are scary? You've never seen a high ghost.
