This past weekend when Janet Jackson won the Icon award at the Billboard Music Awards, many members of the Jackson clan were in attendance including Prince Michael, Katherine and Rebbie Jackson. Michael’s ghost and a whiff of the lingering odor of moldering leather that proves the continuing existence of Joe Jackson, were also there. Not there; Paris Jackson. According to People, it sounds like Paris got dropped off the family text thread (lucky! I wish my family would boot me from mine. My campaign of exclusively responding with RuPaul’s Drag Race GIFs that nobody understands is not working!).
Eventually, even scary monsters get old, start losing their teeth and never remember where they left their reading glasses (they’re on top of your head, you old gargoyle!). Joe Jackson is no exception. At 89 the former alleged family pimp slapper comes off as a harmless, doddering old grandpappy. And somebody has taught the old man to tweet! Joe recently posted a video message for his grandson Blanket and as TMZ points out, Joe may have had himself a little “senior moment” and gotten Blanket confused with his other grandson Prince Michael, who recently had a motorcycle accident.
