Jackson Source was launched late February 2006 by Janneke van der Linden from The Netherlands. At that time, the Official Dutch Jackson Fanclub that I (Janneke) was a crew member of since 1998 ended its fan services after 27 years. I decided to launch Jackson Source, originally planned as a temporarily service to former fan club members and fans to find their way into getting the latest news online. Ten years later, I published over 8 Jackson Magazines and my daily services to share the latest news about Jermaine Jackson, The Jacksons and The Next Generation provide a source for fans worldwide and all the pages and accounts have grown into a network, including this Jermaine Jackson website and the JLJ pages and accounts. Read the tweets from The Jacksons and Jermaine Jackson on Twitter and watch the shout out videos from Tito Jackson, Taj, Jackson, Taryll Jackson and TJ Jackson for Jackson Source 10 Year Anniversary. Thanks to the Jermaine and the Jackson Family for the inspiration, the music, the entertainment and for keeping the dream and legacy alive. And thanks for supporting Jackson Source! Thanks to fans, friends, family, managers, personal assistants, publicists, record labels, photographers and media sources for your support.
With all topics on the table during CNN’s GOP Town Hall on February 18th, Donald Trump’s conversation with Anderson Cooper eventually turned to Michael Jackson. “Michael Jackson was actually a very good friend of mine,” Trump said, when Cooper asked him about his taste in music. Trump added that Michael’s declined because of a lack of confidence. “He was an unbelievably talented guy. He lost his confidence. He lost tremendous confidence because of, honestly, bad-bad-bad surgery. He had the worst. He had people that did numbers on him that were just unbelievable,” Trump said about Jackson’s face. “You know, the plastic surgeons. He was an unbelievable talent who actually lost his confidence. Believe it or not, when you lose your confidence in something you can even lose your talent.” Trump explained that Michael lived in Trump Tower at one point, noting that MJ even got married at one of Trump’s resorts. “I knew the real story of Michael Jackson,” he said. “He was truly one of the most talented people.” Actually, earlier in the day, a voter asked Trump to sign a photograph of himself with Michael Jackson.
On Twitter, Jermaine Jackson commented on Trump's words:
'Friends' don't pay tribute by peddling b.s. theories about Michael's 'loss in confidence'. This fool Trump needs to sit down. Michael's confidence was affected by the pressures, injustice and vitriol of external circumstances. Period.Name-dropping Michael don't make you cool and won't win you votes. Especially when using botched facts.
