Michael Jackson butter sculpture on tap for Iowa State Fair


Michael Jackson will join the ranks of Harry Potter, Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson, and "Superman Returns" star Brandon Routh (oh, and of course the butter cow) as a butter sculpture at the Iowa State Fair next month. (What, no Ashton Kutcher, Iowa State Fair? We're disappointed. Maybe next year?)

According to the Des Moines Register, the recently deceased King of Pop will be immortalized mid-moonwalk. "We're just trying to pay tribute to his contribution to music and dance ... as opposed to giving any scrutiny of his life," Lori Chappell, the State Fair's marketing director, told the paper.

The sculpture will be on display throughout the duration of the fair -- Aug. 13-23 -- in Des Moines.
