Mistakes are lessons learned in life. Of course Joe has changed.

Maybe, but if I were Blanket I wouldn't want a 90 year old man guiding him career. I would want someone young, diverse, and with vitality. A person that is in tune with todays youth and entertainment industry. Experience is crucial as well.

How has Joe changed? Just a couple years ago, he was branding one of his guns like a wild man (actually wouldn't surprise me if he was an NRA member). Sure he's "mellowed" (thanks to strokes) but any man going on about "I can make him famous" shows me the man hasn't changed his spots. Come on MJ fans, you can't believe everything you read about that family! It's not like Joe Jackson was a successful businessman like Berry Gordy, who is only a year younger than Joe (but looks 25 years younger!) and was heavily involved in the Broadway special of his famous label (of which MJ/J5 played a smaller part than those of the Supremes, Marvin Gaye, the Miracles, the Temptations, the Four Tops and Stevie Wonder to name a few). Or like Burt Bacharach, who at 85, is still as productive as ever. Or even Clive Davis, who still manages a successful company at 81 years old. Joe Jackson's only claim to fame was seven of the nine children he produced that became successful pop stars for a minute (J5, MJ and Janet). That's it. He's not that successful and definitely not famous on his own merit.

That's just Joe keeping up with the times and behaving like a BAD ASS Rapper.

So you are convinced he can make anyone a star because he carries a gun, wears designer sunglasses, and is draped in gold jewellery? Do I have that correct?

Well obviously his age didn't stop him from whupping his kids with whatever he could find and pushing them through walls and cheating on his wife with every woman he wanted to (because he can). I'm actually surprised MJ fans here are defending this old ass prick after the damage he did to his children, particularly MJ. It's not like he has talent like Ike Turner (who was a prick anyway for what he did to Tina) or Chuck Berry (questionable behavior) so I don't get it. And don't bring up "well he raised a family of musicians". Musicians who are not working as much except when they need to reunite for money?

I'm not cursed with celebrity worshipping syndrome like you are. That's not jealousy but if you think so; whatever. At least I recognize celebrities have flaws and carve out a public image and a private one. Jackson fans seem to think he had only one. The public image of kissing sick babies. If they only had the intelligence to know it was staged. Jackson likely did not see the kid again, after he left with his camera crew.

Joe's 85 years old. It's not appropriate to act like you're a 20-year-old from the streets. I thought he was above that. Well his actions prove you can take the boy out of Gary, Indiana but... you know the rest. Again, why condone a man who acts like that? I fail to see any "change" in him. Still the same old, evil Papa Joe to me. He destroyed his son, now he wants to destroy his "grandson". But I'm sure the estate is not allowing him to. Joe was probably told to have as little contact with them except when he's on camera. Come on, people, the Jacksons are in on this PR stunt. That's all their lives have been since 1970.

And Joe doesn't look like an old man? Really now? Really?

Sure looks like the picture of fine health.

Now this is an 89(or 90?!)-year-old who doesn't look her age:

I feel no anger and hate toward Blanket. I feel concerned and pity for him because it's obvious the Jackson circus has no interest in his basic needs. The Jacksons could do a lot to bring awareness and research for his disorder, and instead, they hide him away.

Blanket should be a kid, not another money making machine like they made a 11-year-old MJ.

MJ helped a lot of sick children. You can't fake his compassion.

You sound like a fuddy duddy for criticizing the behavior of someone that's been around for 85 years and is making the most of what's left.

If Joe wants to share with his grandson good on him. There's no business like show business as the saying goes.

Blanket's basic needs are being met. What disorder are you on about?
Transgressing your disorder onto Blanket is not justifiable.

Blanket wants a showbiz career and he is with the right family to help him get there.

Considering what his freakish 'dad' did to him, chances are that dull looking kid won't seek a career as a high wire performer.

Maybe he can mix sound for Tito at the Holiday Inn near the airport, stooge.

I wish Blanket all the best in whatever he chooses to do with his life. That poor child is still doing it hard getting over his father's death.

Whatever he chooses to do, he will be good at it like a Jackson. Speaking of Tito, he has more talent in his little finger than that creep Simmons.
