Is The Jackson Family Looking For a Second "Victory?"
UPDATE: According to Billboard magazine, Michael Jackson will NOT be joining the reunited Jackson 5. Damn, does this mean Janet's out too?
"My brothers and sisters have my full love and support, and we've certainly shared many great experiences, but at this time I have no plans to record or tour with them," he said. "I am now in the studio developing new and exciting projects that I look forward to sharing with my fans in concert soon," Michael said in a statement.
The Jackson 5 will reportedly hit the road again, almost 25 years after their last outing - the enormously successful "Victory" tour in 1984.
And this time, they could be joined by little sis Janet Jackson.
Hey, a check's a check and things have been sort of bleak for the first family of scandal since Michael Jackson was accused of getting inappropriately cozy with children multiple times and Janet flashed her boob at the Superbowl in 2004
"This has been a long time coming for the Jackson family to get back together," said Jermaine Jackson in a recent interview. "What we've been doing is working on the music and all the logistics. It is going to be more like a family affair, Janet's going to open and, of course, the original Jackson 5: Michael, [youngest brother] Randy and the whole family. We're in the studio, we're planning on being out there next year."
This could be good news for Janet. Her recent Rock Witchu tour has been plagued with problems. She missed several dates due to migraine-induced vertigo, and her opening act LL Cool J has left the tour.
She also recently had to cut out a provocative number from her show in which she ties up an audience member and grinds on him in a recent date in Detroit. A Michigan law prevents simulated sex on stage.
You would think after the Superbowl scandal, she'd leave the sexual gyrations to a minimum.
