If Joe Jackson is making cologne, it must smell like sweat and underachievement!!

I’ve heard all the different ways that black folks have tried to humanize Michael Jackson’s father. I never knew that terrorizing your children and pimping them out was viewed as quality parenting. I can only imagine what kudos you get for beating them with an extension cord vs a belt. Joe Jackson is what he always was. A Pimp!! Even after his son is gone and buried, Joe is trying to make money off his name.

Joe Jackson had a deal on the table to create a “fragrance” using his late son’s name. No word yet if the bottle is designed to look like Bubbles the Chimp! The company that is guardian over MJ’s commercial rights has put a kibosh to the planned project. I’m not shocked that Joe was trying to circumvent the company in charge of MJ’s name in order to make some side cash. Joe is only doing what Joe knows how to do.

Living off MJ is a Jackson trait that was passed down from Joe Jackson. Everyone except for Rebbie and Janet are always letting you know that they are a Jackson. The worst offender is Jermaine Jackson, who looks like an exhibit at Madame Tussauds. How is it possible that for such a talented guy, “per his own definition,” he is not bigger in the music industry? If it wasn’t for the Jackson 5 you wouldn’t even be able to pick out the rest of them. It’s an absolute shame that MJ’s legacy will always be used by someone that carries the Jackson name. I don’t know who this Franck Rouas character is that Joe was doing business with. But it appears that Joe might need to watch his back on this one. For the first time in his life he might be the one that gets pimped.

I'm dying at the title of this post! Lmao. Um' he did drive or in his case beat them to be successful though, so I don't know about the underachievement part.
