Joe Jackson Planning A Party... For Himself

This nigga JoeJack is a trip. He uses his first minutes in front of a camera after his son's death to promote his bullshit-ass record label, now he's got a big ol' party planned -- for himself.

If Joe Jackson’s spate of recent interviews feels like a publicity tour, that might be because it is one. Michael Jackson’s father is ramping up for his big 80th birthday bash scheduled for Aug. 22 in the Chicago suburb of Tinley Park.

He’s throwing the party with his record label partner Marshall Thompson, who wrote on his MySpace page that the singer's father is well-known for his “popular birthday celebrations each year.”

SMH. My rants after the stretch.


"Popular birthday celebrations"?? Who in the fuck gives a fuck about Joe Jackson's birthday? And the fact that Mike's birthday is exactly one week following JoeJack's planned soiree makes it even more inappropriate, if you ask me. I'd be willing to bet that the JoeJack shindig doesn't include one single dedication to his dead son. And if it does, it'll probably be very fuckin' weak.

It seems to me like the only relatives (out of the most famous ones, anyway) genuinely affected by Mike's passing are Katherine and Janet.

I've been trying to stay out of this Mike Jackson shit, but this one just seemed too weird.

If you're interested, you can catch JoeJack's interview with Larry King - where he denies ever hitting Michael but admits to not expecting to be in the will - at EUR Web.
