Jacksons Need Outfits for the Big Premiere

10/27/2009 5:51 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Tonight's the big "This Is It" premiere and the Jackson brothers haven't got a thing to wear.

The Jackson's

TMZ obtained a copy of an email sent yesterday from a staffer working on the Jacksons' upcoming A&E reality show to different fashion companies asking them to please outfit Jackie, Jermaine, Marlon and Tito in "dressy attire" for tonight's premiere.

The letter states that the staffer would, "love to put the four brothers in XXXXX or dressy attire as this premiere will be receiving a lot of press and will be featured on the reality show."

No word if the Jackson bros scored a deal with anyone -- but we can't wait to see their costumes.

I wish I could rewrite the story. I'd find MJ a better family. Not one that only gave a da.. about him when he had his wallet open.

Oh, and don't believe all of the crap you read on TMZ. Michael's family loved him dearly.

Hi MJ's PYT!
It's streaming live at 7pm on www.MichaelJackson.com. As far as tv I'm not sure. TV Guide Network might be a good bet. That's all they seem to run is MJ stuff. lol

For Sure    

Good evening all

Oh brother (pun intended) every time I want to think well of the Jackson 4 they blow it and remind me of why Michael tried to keep some distance between himself and his brothers.

I have been getting erie feelings about them having Michael's kids in the reality show! I hope Katherine and Grace don't allow that to happen.

Also check out the dream interpretation sites on the web...Seems like lots of fans are having the same couple of dreams ...or very similar.... I think it is very very strange...

Well, that was exactly what I was saying. Try reading.

And I pointed out that you got the brothers wrong. Randy isn´t mentioned in the TMZ "piece". You got it wrong.

Hypocrites    

10. I never bought Michael Jackson as King of PopHe was an OK singer and a good dancer. Then there's all the other stuff.

I am queasy, uneasy – so disturbed I need a new face. Because this week the Michael Jackson Death Cult rolls into London like a great, golden surgical mask, floating down the Thames. We don't get the actual corpse. (I bet his family considered it, but dismissed it, reluctantly, on logistical grounds.) But we do get This Is It, a film of Jackson rehearsing his final concert tour – edited to make him seem happy – a new album, and an exhibition of his personal objects, including the creepy glove. You know the one. It is the one that Freddy Kruger would have worn if he were into Liberace. And I am sitting in this puddle of biblical-style garment-rending and inconsolable wailing, and thinking: Why are we doing this? And also – is Bubbles coming?

I never bought Michael Jackson as King of Pop. I knew that he was not singing for me. His love songs are unbelievable; even Frank Sinatra, wife-beating crooner, was more convincing when pretending to like adult women. There is no truth to his torch songs – he was a child serenading a chocolate bar. When Michael sang, "I just can't stop loving you," I was convinced he was talking to his dermatologist. When he sang, "I want you back," I thought he was talking to his face. He was, for me, floating in the Lionel Ritchie firmament. He was gifted enough in his bendy, needy, nose-free way – but no king. I will cry more when Barry Manilow falls down and is carried into a Copacabana afterlife.

But disputing Michael Jackson's genius is like arguing with religious fundamentalists brandishing King of Pop Dancing Feet Mugs. Reason has zoomed off to the ever-lit funfair – it is all about faith. "Michael Jackson was the best!" scream the fans. If you argue, they cite Beat It as incontrovertible evidence of His Genius. Beat It is an OK song, although it is arguably sub-Wings. What else you got? "He was such a good dancer!" He danced well? Isn't that like saying he played volleyball well? Does that mean I get to buy merchandise and view the corpse? (Sorry, I forgot the corpse is not coming. Just the glove.)

What else? "Michael Jackson invented the modern pop video!" Ah, yes, the modern pop video, that exalted cultural medium where women writhe naked in cages and get called "bitches" by men in jewellery who can't look you in the eye. Jackson also, according to Vanity Fair, paid a witch doctor to ritually slaughter 42 cows, in the hope it might harm Steven Spielberg in some way. (This is possibly an argument in his favour.)

He was also, according to concert footage, very good at pointing, although I do wonder if he was indicating a body part he had lost, and wanted back. So – to summarise – an OK singer and good dancer who invented the modern pop video and enjoyed pointing and who hated Spielberg so much he paid for cows to be killed is dead. Can I put my mourning garb away?

But before I do, could we remember who Michael Jackson really was? What his greatest passion was, under the shifting form? It was to sleep with children. He was never happier than when lying in a pile of children. His enforcer, Anthony Pellicano, who recently served a prison term for stockpiling homemade hand-grenades, has said – and this is in Jackson's defence – "He did sleep in beds with little boys. There's no question about it. He's got a gigantic bed." Jackson also confessed this to Oprah. (Who else would he tell?)

One of the little boys, Jordan Chandler, received $22m from Jackson in exchange for not telling a court that Jackson had abused him aged 13. (Chandler's picture of marks on Jackson's genitals matches a photograph the police took of Jackson's genitals.) Jackson was never convicted of abusing children, although he was repeatedly accused; he paid witnesses off, while telling the media that he was targeted for extortion because he was Michael Jackson. But if he was guilty of child abuse, he got away with it because he was Michael Jackson. Abuse children? We aren't sure. But he did use them. He bought them and played with them and, when they reached adolescence, he dropped them. The bait was always money. Parents got houses and jewellery and cars. One child tells of golden eggs full of dollar bills in Neverland.

What was it like to be one of Jackson's child friends? What was it like to sit in bed with this faceless man and watch The Exorcist – it was his favourite, apparently – and hear that whispering voice? In fact, when I first heard he was dead – it was at Glastonbury, and the mourning was deafening - my first thought was, if he did abuse children, how do they feel now? Will they go and see This Is It? I think we need to take off the licensed Michael Jackson (Dangerous) sleep masks and ponder his sickness because, in the end, it is

Michael regularly spent time with his family. The family has regularly scheduled family days so that they DON'T drift apart. Of course, with such a large family, not everyone makes every family day event. Michael was with them on their May 14 event, however and there is a picture of them all together on one of the MJ fansites. I'm sure you diehard fans have seen it. Stop dissing his family. They loved him unconditionally.

They were in it for the money    

I saw it. Sony and AEG lied thru their ever lovin teeth! There is a body double in the movie, for at least an hour and ten minutes. As for the Azzwipes. They are toast. Nobody is interested in hanger on low lifes who used and abused Michael. I only cried because of what they all did to Michael. They turned him into a profitting tool for their own pockets. they never cared for him. NEVER! I hope everyone boycotts Sony, AEG and their subsidiaries. Bunch of lying thieves! Now LaToya is spouting off she has seen her brother, maybe so. He will haunt that family for all of enternity, because this was something other than an accident.
GAWD! POOR Michael Jackson!

Too funny that you keep posting this sad, ridiculous article. You've found a kindred spirit in that Tanya Gold I see. Just keep reposting it. Like an old dog with his favorite bone.

You might want to check on MTV and VH1. I had read somewhere, then wrote it down that they are suppose to show something concerning the movie. I wrote down 8:30EST, but I would check earlier just in case.

Oh, I agree they loved him. Just not the 'unconditionally' part. If they loved him so much then why didn't they make a greater effort at getting him some help? Why? Because the 'gravy train' would have come to a screeching stop that's why. Janet & Rebbie are great. The rest I've really got no use for.

Seriously, didn't your mama teach you any better than that to talk about a person like that who has passed? I really question some of the parents out there that produced an offspring that acts that way. You are a reflection on your parents, and man, I would be embarrased and hurt if any of my children even thought like that, let alone post in public. Says alot about your character and the imprint you will leave on this earth. You may think you feel mighty behind the comp. screen, but please believe, when you die is the real test of how mighty you were.
