And Finally

Joe Jackson not impressed with circus deal

Although Michael Jackson’s mother Katherine has publicly endorsed the late king of pop’s estate’s decision to do a deal with Cirque du Soleil, which will result in a Jacko themed circus show, his nutty father Joe Jackson isn’t very impressed with the idea. Perhaps he’s pissed off that’s he not been asked to play the grumpy clown, despite his excellent credentials for such a role.

Gossip site quotes the Jackson patriarch as saying of the Jacko estate/Cirque du Soleil deal: “That’s something else, isn’t it? I won’t see it”.

Jackson Snr has, of course, been all but pushed out of his late son’s affairs since the popster’s death last year.
