Joe Jackson Says Blanket Will Be The Next Michael Jackson

At 75-years-old, Joe Jackson is still holding on to the limelight.

The elderly tyrant has vowed to make his grandson, Prince Michael II, aka, Blanket, the biggest star since his late father, Pop Sensation Michael Jackson.

Papa Joe explained that he believed a fortune teller who once predicted Blanket would be a sensation. With a little “proper training”, Blanket could fill the shoes of his father.

“They said there would never be another Michael Jackson and I said that we already have one. But I said he just has to be trained,” said Joe in conversation with an interviewer.

“That kid is a spitting image of Michael when he was smaller.”

Joe’s comments evoked the harsh memories of how he physically, mentally and emotionally abused his five sons and pushed them into the music business at such young ages.

Michael, at the time five, and the rest of his brothers were frequently beaten with a strap or a tree branch if they missed dance steps during practice and forever despised their father for such treatment.

Joe on several occasions said he was never apologetic for his tactics in discipline and claimed “it kept them out of jail and kept them right.”

After years of alleged abuse, Michael’s friends said the late Pop Star never forgave his father.

Elderly Joe’s tales and revelations will be featured in an up and coming documentary titled “Remember Michael,” a film produced by Michael’s mother, Katherine Jackson and funded by fans of Michael.

Along with stories from Michael’s brothers and mother, his three children, Paris, Prince I and Prince II, who speaks on camera for the first time, share memories of Michael and how the prepared for his big comeback before his death in 2009.

In clips already released to the public, Paris Jackson sobs in tears as she says “He (Michael) promised he would teach me how to moonwalk, but he never got around to it.”

She also opens up about her attempted suicide in June and says her life was so isolated and secluded, she didn’t know her father’s name until the age of six. Paris says her father only wanted to be called “Daddy” because he didn’t want her and her brothers to know him as a celebrity.

In Blanket’s interview, the 11-year-old says some of his fondest memories were going into Michael’s room and watching videos of him dancing.

If Joe’s claim is true, we hope Blanket is kept far away from his granddad.

  1. I find if very distressing that people always talk about Joe Jackson and the bad things he did but they never given him credit for making stars of his children. Michael was my favorite artist. I loved him so much until I still cannot bear to listen to his music, but MJ should have given more credit to his family and not trusted the wrong people. As adults regardless of the mistakes of our parents, we have to grow up. and leave the past in the past. I was whipped with switches and straps as a child, but I loved my parents. As for MJ's youngest child, I hope one of MJ's children will sing and dance and enjoy music as much as their dad.

  2. No one really can say Joe mistreated his children, he made them the stars of today, because of people like this writer who does not beleave in laying hand on a child but will applaud the police for beating the hell out of that same black child will then turn around and say his mother and father did not raise him right.Joe kicked their asses and kept his kids out of the system and made stars . (you go Joe )

  3. Definite beginning stages of Alzheimers dementia…..MJ didn't have any BIOLOGICAL children.

  4. Somebody save Blanket please!!!

  5. TawneyMarie I am with u on that one!!!!

  6. Go away Joe Jackson!!!!!Please just Go away!!!!You abused all of your kids and failed as a father especially Michael…..please dont destroy the lives of any of his children!

    • Failed as a father? I don’t think so…this man raised six black successful sons. None were ever in trouble with the law or drugs while under Mr Joe Jackson’s roof!

  7. Stop trying to make Joe Jackson a criminal.

  8. you are forgetting his son omar

  9. Wallace Harris if Joe beat them so bad then the mom is also to blame, how can you sit back and watch your baby get beat, Joe just keep his boys in line, I got hit and love my mom for keeping me in line and out of trouble, I love Mike but if his father hadn't pushed him he would not be who he is. and I think Blanket should be allowed to do what ever he wants dance or not.

  10. how many of you parents hit your kids, look child welfare never came to the house, teacher never saw any thing, guess Mike was like most kids when you get beat you hate your parents at that point, but you get over it, Mike just never got over it.

  11. Lol…No Aunt Niecey, I didn't forget Omar, Ive never heard of him and, probably neither had MJ. I contend that MJ had NO biological children…

  12. Black celebrities who have their fathers’ in their lives are often viewed by the media in a negative light. Richard Williams the father of Venus and Serena was not well liked by the media. To call/label Mr. Joe Jackson a tyrant is an insult to black families.

  13. Blanket ! The pubic was told that he was adopted by Michael Jackson , but he is the only one that look like Michael Jackson. And as some people say, he act like Michael ..And maybe Paris might be his. But not the oldest one Prince I . I hope his talent might be like his father. but there will never be a MICHAEL JACKSON.

  14. MJ is the king. Every time i listen his songs i feel like he is still alive. For sure one of the best music celebrities ever been born!
