LaToya Jackson in an interview this week compared brother Michael Jackson to God, saying the King of Pop had qualities that made him more than mortal.

Michael Jackson "wasn't God, but he was certainly God-like," LaToya Jackson said on ABC's "20/20" this week as she spoke with Barbara Walters.

He had an angelic quality as he was laid to rest last week, LaToya said of her brother, who died June 25 in Los Angeles.

"His hair was done beautifully, his makeup was done beautifully," she said. LaToya also spilled that her brother was buried with a pair of sunglasses and a white glove, two of the star's signature on-stage items of clothing.

He looked "absolutely fabulous," LaToya said.

LaToya, who blamed Jackson's doctors for his death early in the investigation -- before coroners officially designated the pop star's death a homicide -- said she continued to point the finger at his caretakers for injecting him with lethal medications.

"They're doctors!" she told Walters. "This is going against their license."

LaToya Jackson's interview with Barbara Walters will air Friday at 10 p.m. on ABC.
