Jermaine Jackson Music Video

Jermaine Jackson is shooting a BRAND NEW music video for the Jackson 5 song "Blame it on the Boogie" -- problem is, he's missing four Jacksons ... and it's not 1978 anymore.

The 56-year-old was putting the video together earlier this week in Venice, CA.

FUN FACT: When "Boogie" came out in 1978, Jermaine wasn't even in the band anymore ... he had been replaced by his brother Randy.

First off- Jermaine CAN SING. I know if he gets away from the DISCO tunes and finds a universal song or tune he will more than likely be successful. LIke Start with MAN IN THE MIRROR JERMAINE- NOT SINGING it but listen to it.

Jermaine no one wears long pants, long sleeve shirt and blazer to Venice Beach in the heat of summer. You are 57 years old just floating in life trying to recreate the past that no longer exists. Until you find "yourself" you will remain lost. You are in denial that you aren't trying to make money off Michael's songs and name. Blame it on the Boogie has been re-done numerous times so who wants to hear it again? You are now going to sing "Hold My Hand" in the school talent show. If this isn't proof of denial that you are riding Michael's coattails you desperately need counseling.

Taj and Jermaine - You both question why people have turned against an 81 yr old woman, your mother. Your answer is below. This includes Joe also and none of this information comes from media or tabloids. The information below is from lawsuits and filings in the court system:

Joe and Katherine have brought this on all by themself. Fans adored KJ at first, but as time passed and the decisions she made created a huge turn on her by the fans. The Jackson family never admits when they are wrong. They always blame everyone else. Taj is caught up in that mess and this is what we fear most for MJ3 being influenced by that behavior also. If the entire Jackson clan (nieces and nephews included)would just shut up and stop writing books, creating tributes, promoting their songs, going on talk shows & giving interviews, etc. they would not receive the backlash. The books, tributes, song promotions, talk shows/interviews etc., all have 2 things in common: Michael and Money.

1. Katherine & Joe filed in court that MJ did not have a Will within 3 days of his death. That was a lie and they knew MJ had a Will. They knew he had the 1995 Will but did not disclose it because neither one of them were the executors. Also the weekend they decided to file their papers in court, Branca had submitted a copy of the 2002 Will to them.
2. Since that backfired on them, KJ then filed to be a Special Administrator with Branca and McClain. She conceded with that request 4 months later.
3. During this same period of time she and Joe are working with Melissa Johnson from Heal the World Foundation and then met up with Howard Mann. Both HTWF and Howard’s plans was to get income by the use of MJ’s name and the sell of MJ merchandise i.e., KJ’s book and KJ & Joe sold the families storage unit to Howard of their personal belongings.
4. KJ signs a contract with Howard Mann to promote his website/company “Secret Vault” which also included the use of MJ3.
5. KJ then has t.v. interviews stating the Executors are greedy thus dissing the Executors.
6. KJ wanted her allowance increased claiming it wasn’t enough money. I guess MJ was to continue supporting Alejandra and Jermaine’s kids in death like he did in life.
7. Joe decides to create perfumes, ice cream, jewelry & clothing all off MJ’s name by going overseas to avoid the Executors. Had Paris promoting his perfume last week in Gary, IN.
8. Joe invests (he says) in Happyland stating that is what MJ would want.
9. Now KJ & Joe & LaToya have planned this Wales Tribute in which no charity donations will come out of their portion of profits.
10. KJ & Joe want fans to pay for their Jackson Family Museum and MJ Art Center.
11. KJ & Joe charged admission for the first time this year to attend MJ’s 53rd B’day in Gary.
12. When KJ was at the Beverly Hills event to sell her book, she charged fan’s for her autograph.
13. The family charged MJ $30,000 for Rolls-Royce rentals for them to arrive at MJ’s funeral and $1975.50 for clothes to wear to his funeral.
14. KJ & Joe keep the upfront money and cars that Segye Times gave them for a concert and the concert doesn’t happen, then KJ & Joe keep the cars and money anyway.
15. Because creditors are after KJ & Joe and Hayvenhurst can be repossed, they put Hayvenhurst in LaToya’s & Michael’s name so they don’t lose their home to pay for their outstanding debts. They also file for bankruptsy to avoid paying their creditors, but MJ ends up paying their bills so the bankruptsy is cancelled.
16. During the first 4 months of probate court KJ racked up a $350,000 invoice with Burt Levich and can’t pay it. Levich wants MJ’s Estate to pay the invoice.
17. It’s sick that KJ and Joe had their own children to financially support them in life and now they are doing the same with MJ3. Stop using and abusing children !!!

At any time MJ3 are used to promote the Jackson family or put on camera, MJ fan's will reject and not financially support anything "Jackson". MJ3's education and privacy is critical in their upbringing. If this isn't first and foremost, Katherine's guardianship should be terminated immediately.

Jermaine is a great singer, he did a great rendition of Boogie, and he looks fantastic for his age. End of story. Enough with the debates already!

Jermaine isn't better with the timing as the rest of his family. He is also releasing his book "You Are Not Alone: Michael, Through a Brother's Eyes" now on September 13th!

Btw... have you read the book "Jackson Family Values", that his ex wife Margaret wrote about him and the rest of the Jackson family? Read it here... http://jetzi-mjvideo.com/books-jetzi-02b/jfv/jfv0a.html

The sad part is die hard fans are starting to lose respect for this family. Jermaine who has always been jealous of MJ and even introduced him to mystery man Tohme Tohme who set out to ruin his life is now acting like the loving brother and writing books - what hypocrisy.
And Marlon being involved in the tribute concert when he was the only member of the family that never attended any of the trials to support his brother.
This family is really starting to become a disgusting embarassment and I for one will not support anything they do - with the exception of Janet.

Jermaine's own feelings about this, from his twitter account:


jermjackson5 Jermaine Jackson
...if anyone is going to do a cover of a Jacksons' song, I think it should be a Jackson : ) #keepitinthefamily

Amuses me to hear I'm "trying to be like Michael" by simply doing a cover of The Jacksons' 'Blame It On The Boogie'. What nonsense, but...


Question remains - why an old cover...?
