LaToya Isn't Up To Dancing, But Wants To Take On Idol

| Filed under: Michael JacksonReality TV


Though she confirms she was asked to perform on the show, LaToya Jackson won't be appearing on Dancing With The Stars this season. She just isn't quite ready yet.

“I can’t see myself putting myself into there right now, dancing every single day when I’m still trying to find out what exactly happened to my brother," she says. "That’s the most important thing for me at this very moment.”

Though she doesn't see any dancing in the near future, she is hoping to be asked to judge on the upcoming season of American Idol: "I would love to be a judge on that show. I think I would do well with [Simon].”

They do have an opening! Wouldn't that be an interesting addition to the show?


Would U want to see LaToya in Paula Abdul's former seat?

    I wouldnt mind seeing her a as a guest for a time or 2

  2. 2


  3. 3

    I would love to see her.

  4. 4

    gross. no way.

  5. 5

    yes, anyone related to michael is gooooood C:

  6. 6

    id love to see her but it wont .. shes 10x more fuckin crazy than paula was

  7. 7

    I rather watch her on Geraldo reruns when she was dishing on the fam.

  8. 8

    no, i would not.
    she's delusional. why does she think anybody wants to see her perform anywhere? didn't she have like one rather mediocre-performing album back in the 80's?
    does she think just because her brother died she is owed some attention and some sort of career at this point?
    i find this highly distasteful. what is wrong with this family? can't they behave with any dignity and grace? do they have to ride his death into town on the money wagon?

  9. 9

    I think she should replace Simon. Tell you what: I'm biased. If you put all the hate mail and comments that Perez Hilton EVER received together all into me, that's how much I hate that Simon whatever's his family name (Glad I forgot).

  10. 10

    i wouldnt want to see her as a permanent judge but she would probably make a nice guest judge .. specifically on a week that they do michaels music .. if they do that again this yr..

  11. 11

    bring paula back and replace kara with paula. could you imagine that?? that would be one drugged out show!!

  12. 12

    Re: Vexation – why would you hate someone so much that you dont even know personally ? .. and i get that alot of the time hes harsh but at least hes honest and some people need his harsh honesty sometimes actually. other times.. i will definitely say hes over the line mean.

  13. 13

    Yes, I would love to see LaToya in Paula's seat. LaToya is the most interesting Jackson to watch(personailty wise). I think she'd be great and from her being raised in The Jackson family, she knows good talent when she sees it. I'm all for it.

  14. 14

    She's not qualified. What "hits" has she produced. I thought that was the whole idea.

  15. 15

    Hey, how ’bout Crazy Courtney?!? Now THAT would be entertaining!

  16. 16

    She would be good for a few shows. Until Paula comes back and she will.

  17. 17

    YES, LA TOYA!!

    La Toya would make a great judge! She's an 80's pop icon in her own right, she brings the glamour element, she's a role model for positivity and moving forward, she's riveting to look at, and she's equally as qualified to talk about singing as Paula Abdul was!

    The Universal Love of LaToya (Google it!)

  18. 18

    Helllz no! She's a bigger mess than Paula. Why doesn't Idol just keep a 3-judge format?

  19. 19

    the jacksons family should all crawl back into their hole in that cave no one knows about. They're all trying to get their 15minutes now that Mike is gone. LAtoa? boring. Janet? boring. That other brother whos name i dont care? boring. That big brother I could care less? boring.

  20. 20

    how about drug testing for the whole family? Mike aint the only one looking freakish

  21. 21

    Re: mrsadamlambert23
    I know him more than personally. I'm a clairvoyant. I have secret powers.

  22. 22

    Does she have the same "disease" that Michael had??

  23. 23

    she would be an INCREDIBLE replacement… she could top paula's unique views, i'm sure.

  24. 24

    LaToya?…oh noooooo! I agree with someone saying she should crawl back into that cave…and by the way! She's kinda white…no one's wondering about her skin!!?

  25. 25

    something about her makes me not like her !

  26. 26

    funny how when Michael needed her she went on TV (Geraldo) and called him a pervert. such a hypocrite!

  27. 27

    yes, any idiot can do it.

  28. 28

    Yes i would love to see LaToya up there. I loved her on Celebrity Big Brother and at least she would be coherent.

  29. 29

    Hell to the mother fucking NOOO!!!!

  30. 30

    ratings would go up ,she is a head case but she would make a great addition to american idol

  31. 31


    She is Gross!!

  32. 32

    that's good she's focusing on her brother and i would like to see her on idol too

  33. 33

    many of you seems to forget how BIG laToya were back in the days. she was a household name, had many tributes songs and her cover on Playboy is still the most selling cover of all time. LaToya were BIG back in the days…

  34. 34

    Everyone would watch and they all would report. This is a Jackson - apart of American Music Royalty in my opinion. Like her or not a family name will take you a long way.

  35. 35

    Re: minaahm – but if you look at her now , many ppl see her as a hypocrite . she practically called her own brother a pervert etc. now all of a sudden she cares sooo much about him . ( the main one banking from his death ) well at least trying to ;(

  36. 36

    Hey LaToilet, stay away from American Idol.
    Is it me, or is LaToilet becoming whiter and losing more of her nose?

  37. 37

    she wont dance cuz she CANT - she is the least talented jackson EVERRRRRRRRRR

  38. 38

    Paula may be a little wacky, but she is talented and knows what she is talking about.

    LaToya is just coo coo for cocoa puffs, no talent, no knowledge…so why does she think she is qualified??

  39. 39

    i think she would do great :)

  40. 40

    Re: tigrrrlilly – she never said she wants to "perform" anything, so i really don't know what you're talking about. she is not trying to have a new career, she is who she is & that's who she'll be forever. once you're a celebrity, that's who you are forever, whether it's tom selleck, tom hanks, kevin bacon… even if u stop producing work, if someone wants your input on something because you know firsthand what it's about, you should be asked, no?

  41. 41

    i love to see her on the show… i think it would be very entertaining

  42. 42

    Oh yeh because LaToya is really qualified to judge a music contest. She cannot sing, was the least successful Jackson in the music industry and is a giant hypocrite that is riding on Michaels coat tails. How about you go get some manners and decency LaToya because right now your a fucking disgrace.

  43. 43

    fuck no! Paula is adorable train-wreck for the show, but LaToya? eww, fuck NO.

  44. 44

    Hell, NO, she hasn't done one thing worth anything. Her claim to fame is her last name-that is it. She is truly a no-talent, spot-light seeking wreck!

  45. 45

    Yeah, she's concentrating on finding out what happened to Michael??! She and OJ should get together. They can help each other find the REAL killers!

  46. 46

    does she have vitiligo too ?

  47. 47

    It's amazing to see that the hatred that many had for Michael is now aimed at his family. Seriously the Jackson's can't catch a break. Latoya and the rest of her family, when they have been out discussing the recent passing of their love one, has not tried to make it an attention seeking charade. The minute one of them steps out of their home people are like "Oh boy there goes a Jackson looking for attention" Gosh that is dumb… The quote from above from Latoya says that she is focusing on trying to figure out what happened to her brother. How come people can't just take that as the truth? What she said about Michael and her family 20 years ago was forgiven by her family so why are a bunch of strangers attacking her about it? Her and her family have also come out and discussed the abuse that she suffered by the hands of her husband/manager. He forced her into doing and saying alot of things and threatend to kill or have killed members of her family if she didn't do and say those things. When she ran and got away from that man who do you think came to rescue her? It was members of her family… And to the people wondering if she suffers from vitiligo like Michael did. Latoya is and has always been light complexted. Black people do come in all different colors…. Dang leave the Jacksons alone. They are just like any other family, the only difference is that other families haven't had to live their whole lives under the microscope of the whole world.
