Michael Jackson Makes His Way To Broadway! Motown: The Musical Set To Premiere!

Motown is headed to Broadway this spring!

After being several years in the making, director Charles Randolph-Wright has finally found his perfect cast for Motown: The Musical!

Michael Jackson, Diana Ross and the Supremes, Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye, amongst others, will all be portrayed by actors on the Great White Way, starting March 11th!

12-year-old Raymond Luke Jr. has been cast to play young MJ, and will have the honor — and major pressure — of singing some of the Jackson 5’s greatest hits, like I Want You Back and ABC!

Check out a pic of Raymond (above)!!

Of the actor and his portrayal, Randolph-Wright states:

"Michael Jackson had intensity and a confidence, combined with a naiveté. He was almost hypnotic in his allure. You can't replicate one of a kind, but Raymond has that spirit, that feeling Michael Jackson gave you. He makes you smile."

Wow, those are definitely some big shoes to fill, but we’re sure the rising Broadway star will do just fine in playing the King of Pop!

Take a look at a behind the scenes sneak peak and hear Raymond sing some MJ… AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Michael Jackson's Older Brother Jermaine DIVORCES Jackson Family With Name Change!

He wants OUT!

Michael Jackson's older brother Jermaine Jackson filed paperwork in court Tuesday to legally change his name!

Ooh, ooh! We wonder what fabulously exotic new moniker he will choose?

Bartholomew Guggenheim? Vincent van Yo? Henry McTurkeysausage?

How about…. Jermaine Jacksun?

Uhhh, what's the point of that? To distance himself from the family, but just a little?

Sounds like his days of living in MJ's shadow are definitely coming to an end middle!

It's hard to believe a man who named his son Jermajesty would be so cavalier about this sort of thing, LOLz!!

JJ's reps defended the move in a statement, claiming "artistic reasons." It said:

The Jackson Brothers Settle Suit Over Thriller & Beat It Jackets

Earlier this month we told you about a collection of limited-edition Michael Jackson jackets that had been added to the J5 Collection clothing line.

The 1,000 Thriller and Beat It jackets were specifically tailored to the King of Pop's measurements and come hand-signed by the four remaining Jackson 5 members as well as a replica Michael Jackson signature.

However, just a few days later, the pricey ($2,350 each) jackets were back in the media after three of the Jackson brothers sued Steeve Bohbot after not receiving payment for their signatures.

Marlon, Jackie, and Tito Jackson said they were owed $100k each but have now settled the lawsuit in which they claim they were “duped” into the deal.

Reveals Jackie:

"Marlon, Tito and I created this project as a tribute to our brother Michael and his fans worldwide, and we are very happy that there has been a resolution.”

Bohbot added:

"We have such an immense respect for the Jackson brothers and Michael's legacy and are pleased to have resolved this situation.”

Sounds like it was all just a big misunderstanding? Or perhaps the lawsuit forced them to pay the brothers for their signatures as was in the contract.

Either way, did U end up purchasing one of the jackets?

Twitter Wants The @Trademark For The Term 'Tweet'

Check out the video (above) of Jackson 5 performing Rockin' Robin.

Now tell us: Do U think Twitter should own the trademark to the term 'Tweet'???

Either way, we've just learned that Twitter is trying to trademark the term once again…after failing twice before.

Here's what the company had to say about it in a statement:
