Jay Washington sat down with producer/artist Monz the Talk on Educated Insanity. Jay informed everyone that him and Monz had known each other since they were children, how Monz got his start in music (which goes back to when he was a toddler), his influences and how he gets his inspiration to come up with the art he produces. They talked about the mixtape release party scheduled Tuesday January 22nd at Red Kiva in Chicago,IL. We also get to hear the track “My Moment” as well.
Jermaine Jackson doesn’t want to be a Jackson anymore?
The older brother of Michael Jackson filed a name change petition Tuesday in Los Angeles, reports the AP.
He wants to switch to Jermaine Jacksun. He says it’s for “artistic reasons.”
“The filing doesn’t elaborate, but Jackson’s friend Steve Dennis, who was speaking on the singer’s behalf, said it’s not unheard of for artists to change their names.
“Phonetically, it changes nothing,” he said. “It is something he has chosen to do, and it’s fair to say that you cannot blame this one on the boogie, you’ve got to blame it on the sunshine,” Dennis told AP, a reference to the Jackson 5 disco hit, Blame it on the Boogie.
A hearing on whether Jackson will become Jacksun is scheduled for Feb. 22.
Katherine Jackson, the mother of Michael Jackson and guardian of his three children, is safe and with a family member in Arizona, authorities said late Sunday, one day after another relative reported her missing.
Los Angeles Sheriff’s Deputy Mark Pope said investigators made contact with Jackson, but he did not have specifics on her whereabouts. The agency previously said they believed she was with a relative and safe, but wanted to speak with her.
Katherine Jackson is with her daughter Rebbie in Arizona, following a doctor’s orders to “de-stress” and stay away from the phone and computers, her son Jermaine Jackson said in a statement late Sunday. He said access to his mother is not being blocked.
A member of the Jackson family had reported the family matriarch missing on Saturday, prompting a frantic plea from the late pop star’s only daughter to help locate her grandmother.
“I haven’t spoken with her in a week I want her home now,” 14-year-old Paris Jackson tweeted, later providing a number for people to contact in case they see her grandmother. Katherine Jackson has been caring for Paris, Prince Michael and Blanket Jackson since their father’s death in June 2009.
It was unclear who is taking care of the children in her absence.
Michael Jackson owes a convicted criminal $1 BILLION for exploiting personal details about her life in his music — this according to a bizarre and, dare we say, bogus lawsuit.
Kimberly Griggs filed the case in San Diego — claiming she and Jackson had an intimate relationship beginning in 1979, which she says he chronicled in his albums “Off the Wall,” “Thriller,” “Bad,” “Dangerous,” and his greatest hits album … “Number Ones.”
Griggs — who spent years in prison for burglary and robbery – claims she was pissed that Michael exposed her personal secrets in his tunes, so to make things nice he promised to give her the rights to the songs.
She says she was stunned when MJ died and she was completely left out of his estate.
According to the handwritten lawsuit, Griggs wants $1 billion in damages.
Let’s be realistic and honest here, unless A) Jermaine’s hair is either cut into a solid socially acceptable hairdo or B) somebody finally tell me whats Tito’s actual purpose are you really looking forward to seeing a Jacksons reunion…..wait for it …..U.S TOUR?
maybe this will explain why The Jackson’s: An American Dream has been getting played or TV more than when Michael actually died. In their first tour since ‘VICTORY’ in 1984, the brothers Jackie, Marlon, Jermaine and Tito will be goin on tour this summer in 18 cities.
They will be hitting Cleveland, Merrillville, Louisville, Raleigh, Charlotte, New York (PLEASE GOD LET THEM BE PART OF THE HOT 97 SUMMER JAM) and Atlanta to name a few. What that means is that somebody’s Child Support payments are going to help pay the Jackson’s child support payments.
I just have a few final questions tho…How come they didn’t get Randy?????, How will this work without MJ ????and will they do this song and wear these outfits……
