Jermaine Jackson took the stage with his brother Tito, Marlon, and Jackie this weekend and he was more message than music!
Which makes sense, because the audience included just about as many Jackson family members as it did legit fans!
"We are a family … sometimes it seems to get complicated."
When a mother dies and her two daughters fight over a strand of pearls, that's complicated!
When the King of Pop dies, his doctor is convicted of manslaughter, his siblings are left penniless, and his underage children are left to run a billion dollar empire per the terms of a heavily contested will, that's BEYOND complicated!!
When the kids are left to fend for themselves after their guardian/Grandmother is
abducted whisked away by her own children in an effort to brainwash her into helping seize control of the deceased pop icon's empire from his rightful heirs, well that's BEYOND beyond complicated!
It's an eight-part HBO miniseries on the most historically significant dysfunctional American family in several generations!!
After accepting the award for Brazen Understatement of the Decade, Jermaine continued:
"We're ONE … the Jackson family is one. We are one family and we WILL heal, I promise you."
For the sakes of Prince, Paris, and especially young Blanket, we hope you are right!
