Jermaine Jackson Trying To Be Relevant Again!

Page 6 reports that Jermaine Jackson is working with Larry King's wife Shawn to hold a birthday celebration for Jermaine's late brother Michael Jackson on September 26th in Vienna. Usher and Lionel Richie are confirmed performers. However, Jermaine's own sister Janet hasn't even agreed to sign on as of yet. In fact it's questionable whether this celebration will even come off:

The original promotional materials, which sought sponsors willing to pay up to $3 million, listed President Obama as "confirmed talent" as well as Al Pacino, Colin Powell and Richard Branson. But a White House source said the president is definitely not planning to attend. World Awards producer Georg Kindel, who's also part of the project, hinted that Madonna would perform. But her spokeswoman, Liz Rosenberg, said, "It's not true. She's still on tour."

An executive involved in handling Michael Jackson's estate said, "We have nothing to do with it. It's all Jermaine." Another insider said, "It's sleazy."

It's common knowledge that Jermaine at times was jealous of Michael's success. It's a shame that he's gaining visibility on the death of his famous brother. Some people will do anything to stay relevant.
