Michael Jackson has been in the news a lot recently, from his music going on the road with Cirque Du Soleil to a new album next month. But, this new Jackson 5 clothing line may be the most disturbing of them all.
His family is releasing a clothing line that will feature the faces of the different members of the Jackson 5.
Why are they doing this? If your name is not Michael Jackson I don't want your face on me. I cant imagine who will want to walk around with a Jermaine Jackson shirt or wear pajamas with Tito's face on it. The only acceptable Jackson 5 clothing is the shirt from the '70s with their group picture on it. That is when they were young and cute.
First, it was their reality show, "The Jacksons, A Family Dynasty," and now a clothing line? Michael Jackson was not even dead for a full month before his brothers started to promote their reality show, and now they are further capitalizing on their brothers' passing with J5 clothing.
The actual clothes are nice and trendy, but the pictures of Jermaine's huge face plastered on them is what will keep me from giving this line any of my money. Maybe there are some die-hard Jackson 5 fans who will purchase clothing from J5, but this entire business gets the side eye from me.
I just wonder if this is really a way to pay homage to the legacy of the Jackson's or just a quick way to generate some income. You be the judge at j5collection.com.
