Jackson Five to reunite, Jermaine says
Singer says group could begin touring as soon as next year
MSNBC News Services
updated 9:56 a.m. ET, Tues., Nov. 27, 2007
The Jackson Five are planning to tour again for the first time since 1984, Jermaine Jackson told BBC Radio on Monday.

Jermaine, who appeared in the British version of “Celebrity Big Brother” this year, said he and his brothers, including Michael, could hit the road as soon as next year and that concert dates have been discussed.

“We feel we have to do it one more time. We owe that to the fans and to the public,” Jermaine said in the BBC interview.

The group, which included Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, Marlon and Michael, and later younger brother Randy, stopped touring in the ’80s when Michael and little sister Janet became superstars in their own right. The Jackson Five officially disbanded in 1990.

Since reaching mega-star status, Michael has encounter legal and financial problems. He was acquitted of child molestation charges two years ago. Jermaine told the BBC that Michael's legal problems had delayed reunion plans.

“There's been so much going on, getting over all the hurdles that we all were faced with during Michael's trial,” Jermaine said. “But we are stronger than ever.” He also said he and his brothers were “in the studio at the moment.”

You mean Micheal-Latoya-Janet? I think they are all the same person.

Michael looks more like a wax statue that has been too close to the heat.

It is truly sad. Way back when, I think he had great talent. Now he is just a very strange sad individual.

"Strange" is a HUGE understatement.
Remember when he tried to buy John Merrick's remains?

I think Festus is referring to the man known more by the name "Elephant Man".

Ok, But I still don't remember MJ trying to buy the remains. Granted I have never really followed the strange actions of MJ.

I believe it was in the 80's. About the same time he was trying to buy the rights to the Beatles Music Library.

Must have been the beginning of his downward spiral into weirdness.

Right. Did you know that his real name was Joseph and not John?
I can't remember how he came to be referred to (incorrectly) as John.

A press release on May 29, 1987, from Jackson's manager, Frank DiLeo, stated that the singer "has a high degree of respect for the memory of Merrick. He has read and studied all material about the Elephant Man, and has visited the hospital in London twice to view Merrick's remains. His fascination with the historical significance increased with each visit, along with hopes to add them to his collection of rare and unusual memorabilia at his California compound." He went on to claim that Jackson had no intentions to exploit the remains for profit and only wished to treat them as art or antiques. Michael Jackson's offer of US $1 million was turned down. He later went on to extensively deny that he had tried to obtain the Elephant Man's bones.

Yeah; for one thing, he's white now, and has apparently been taking the hormones for a sex change.
