He Vants to Be Alone

9/6/2008 12:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Maybe he didn't want people to see those unsightly liver spots you get when you turn 50, but whatever the reason, Michael Jackson was the invisible manboy at a family event.

BMI honored the Jackson 5 and Janet Jackson in L.A. but Jacko was nowhere to be found. Jermaine, who is never germane, reportedly was also a no show but no one cared.

Face it, the Jackson's are all old news. They had their spot in the sun and career wise they are finished. Michael ruined whatever he had with his obsession to look like Peter Pan and his disgusting behavior with little boys. Janet simply goes up and down the weight scales and records the same old stuff over and over again. As for Jermaine, just go away.

He might look like a complete circus act now...but he and the jackson's still have some of the best songs of all-time. And a whole lot of them!!! Sad that the parents had to screw them up. Oh wait...just like half the world...look at our society!!!

Guess Who?    

Just maybe, he didn't want to take away from his brothers big moment. If he had attended, all eyez and news stories would have been about him and the others would have gone unnoticed. Just maybe it was a selfless act. Just maybe, he isn't the weird freak the media has made him out to be. He may just be a loving father, great son and considerate brother. Just maybe, news outlets need to concentrate on areas where there is a story and stop the practice of making them up. I just feel that the story the media tells isn't particularly the gospel, and shouldn't be believed on face value alone.

They build you up to break you down!

Kathie is a phony    

OLD NEWS. He is a one-man freakshow! He should change his name to Norma Desmond, and rent a spooky mansion on Sunset Blvd.

I'm sorry, but you can possibly think that anyone cares about Mr. Jackson anymore, do you? Take a poll. He's a has-been and unlike Brittney, can never hope to come back.
