Not Surprised: Katherine Jackson Exploits Her Dead Son For Profit

June 24th, 2010 // 7 Comments

I know I’ll get some flack for this, but that’s okay. The point of this website and all blogs are that we’re here to share our opinions on stuff right? Well, when I saw the story of Katherine Jackson putting together a coffee table book about her deceased son, who you know as Michael Jackson, I felt disgusted.

Never Can Say Goodbye: The Katherine Jackson Archives will feature photos from her personal collection along with her reminiscences and will go on sale Monday, to coincide with the anniversary of Jackson’s death on Friday. Proceeds from the book will be split between Katherine, Michael’s three children and the Voices Against Brain Cancer charity.

It’s really terrible that Jackson was worth more dead than alive and that his own damn mother is now exploiting his image and her memories of her own damn son to make some money. Sure it’s ‘split’ between her and the kids, but c’mon! It just sickens me that people are still trying to profit off of him in death.

But, why am I surprised? Anything anyone in that family does (aside from Janet, who keeps her distance if you’ll notice) is just really fucked up. And then there’s this charity concert business which is ‘endorsed’ by Katherine. Who is she to endorse anything? Ugh.

While you ponder those thoughts, check out the 160 photos of Michael Jackson in the gallery.

    I dont think that she’s using the money for herself. I believe that she is doing it for his kids… any money that book makes after she dies they get. She’s old and she knows she wont be around forever.. To me its a smart thing to do.

    I am mj’s #1 fan so you cannot pull anything across me regarding Michael. In this picture mj’s face is reversed. MJ’s scar on his cheek is on the left side of his face, not the right side. Also on mj’s upper sexy lip on the left side is a little fuller than the right side, so on a picture mj’s scar and fuller side on his upper lip is suppose to be on the right side from looking at his face, but when you look at his face on this picture the scar and fuller side of his upper lip is on the the left side because his face has been reversed for whatever reason. It makes me angry everytime they reverse mj’s face on a good looking picture of him, I don’t know why they do this, maybe their too jealous to show his beauty to the world before he changed his face, maybe because they don’t want people to know mj changed his face in vain-and he was only scarred by the name calling during adolescents which followed him to adulthood. MJ really improved in his looks once he passed adolescents, mj is almost as cute as he was when he was 11. Another thing I’ve noticed, they always took most of mj’s pictures with his head facing downward, or if not that they would place the camera from on top of his face so it’s just like he’s placing his head downward, why did they do that? because that was mj’s least cute position of his face, seem like hateing to me. MJ looked best with his face placed in the “normal” position. MJ was a cutie pie he didn’t even need to change his face, too bad he was too scarred by the name calling during adolescents, he didn’t even realize he improved in his looks once he passed adolescents, it’s like he regained his cutness again from when he was 11 years old, poor Michael.

    Who is this women? Joe shouldn’t be curled up with her like that, it’s nice to take pics with friends but it looks like their more than friends, hope that’s not the case.

    That is one handsome man, mj didn’t need to change nothing, but this is what happens when you’ve been scarred from adolescent name calling regardless how you may have improved in your looks from adolescents.
