Joe Jackson Flashes His Pistol in Las Vegas

Apparently Jackson family patriarch Joe Jackson isn’t only handy with a belt but a pistol as well… at least that’s what he told an audience in Las Vegas before opening his jacket to flash one.

It all went down at the Tuscany Hotel and Casino in Vegas this weekend where Joe was being honored at the Black Music Awards. Before bringing the famous dad on stage Joe’s good friend Majestik told the crowd a story about Joe confronting Michael Jackson’s bodyguards two weeks before MJ’s death.

Majestik say, during the alleged confrontation, Joe flashed his pistol at the guards and said: “If I hear you all givin’ my son drugs or doing anything illegal with my son … I’m going to kill all of you.”

After hitting the stage, Joe corroborated the story informing the crowd that what Majestik said was true… “Every word he said.”

“I carry a piece everywhere I go,” Joe said before opening his jacket to reveal his piece. “I’m gonna show it to you.”

“I’ve been threatened a lot of times and so I need to be safe.”

Let’s just hope Papa Joe never has to use his tool… After all, the belt was enough to get his family to the top.

Joe Jackson: Model Father?

Published by Runteldat on Tuesday, October 27, 2009 at 11:50 am.


To those of you who adhere to the adage, “spare the rod, spoil the child (and to hell with CPS)” take comfort in the Rev. Al Sharpton claiming that we need more fathers like Joe Jackson.

Yes, the Joe Jackson who has long been alleged for treating Michael Jackson like his personal piñata is being praised like a model father by an ordained minister.

While awarding him for his parenting skills, Rev. Sharpton said: “The arrogance of [people] attacking a man for being a stern father. I wish we had more stern fathers – then we wouldn’t be shooting each other up.”

No, they would spend the rest of their lives repressing their physical abuse through eccentric vises…and avoiding the psychotherapy they need.

In response to Sharpton’s praise, Jack ‘Em Joe said, “This feels great. I feel like I’m someone very special.”

It Takes $3,000 To Hang with Joe Jackson

Published by Runteldat on Friday, October 16, 2009 at 11:50 am.


Have you wanted to learn how to properly back hand a child?

Or have you said to yourself, “Self, I need to get my babies singing and dancing” but didn’t know how to take it to the next level?  Or have you ever simply thought “Man, that Joe Jackson sure is a likable guy. I wonder what it would be like to hang with him.”

If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions what’s wrong with you you’re in luck – you have the opportunity of a lifetime.

Papa Joe is selling what he calls a Platinum VIP package. If you partake in his package deal, you’ll get a chance to watch Michael Jackson’s upcoming concert film, This Is It, with Mr. Jackson himself in Vegas.

Oh and the deal doesn’t just stop there. No, you’ll get an autographed copy of his book, Joseph Jackson: Man In The Mirror, Father of the First Family of Music,” along with dinner with Joe, pictures with Joe, plus a hotel room and your own invite to the opening night party at the Palms Casino Resort Blue Moon Club.

All this for the low price of $3,000. With a sale like that you sure better not be tardy for the party.

To those of you who say, “How can he continue exploiting his son this way?” I say to you Joe’s gotta eat. Might as well let some Jackson stan pick up the tab.

Boycotting Kanye And Is He Taking a Break?

Published by Runteldat on Tuesday, September 15, 2009 at 12:00 am.


Kanye West continues to feel the fury from the world over his antics at the VMA’s.

As if it weren’t enough to be cursed out by both Pink and Katy Perry, Kanye has also gotten it from the likes of Pitbull and Marsha Ambrosius from Floetry.

It seems everyone and their aunty as something to say about Kanye West this week. No seriously even my aunt sent a text asking me what the hell was wrong with ‘Ye.

And now others are joining in on the fray.

Donald Trump has called for a boycott of all things Kanye “so this kind of thing doesn’t happen again.” And Donald doesn’t think his outburst had anything to do with Beyonce per se.

He said, “He couldn’t care less about Beyonce. It was grandstanding to get attention.”

This is the same man who disrespected Rosie O’Donnell. Besides, Kanye is a true Beyonce stan. Next.

Papa Joe Jackson chimed in with:

I don’t know what he was doing, he jumped up on stage and snatched that microphone out of that poor girl’s hand. They should blackball him out of show business for that. He just leapt up there, that was bad.

I had just gotten through speaking to him, he was introducing me to his girlfriend, and then three minutes later he jumped up on stage. And people booed Kanye all night.”

I have three words for Joe Jackson: Ranch House Records.

If that weren’t enough editor of the New York Post’s PopWrap have called for a year long ban of Kanye West.

In a press release, Ryan Brockington and Jarett Wieselman wrote:

“This is just the latest in a long line of ridiculously overblown antics we’ve been treated to by the rapper and we here at PopWrap have had enough. Sure he apologized, but now he needs to atone. Feel free to link metaphorical arms with us and boycott the blowhard. Prove to Kanye that his abhorrent actions have consequences! So have a nice life Kanye, because we’re not interested anymore.”

Has the New York Post ever atoned for any of the salacious, sometimes racist, a little bit sexist comments made over the years? I thought so.

As wrong as Kanye West was, aren’t these calls for boycotts a bit extra?

And if things weren’t bad enough for the dude who should’ve kept his self in his seat, now President Obama has chimed in. Apparently he made an “off the record” remark to an ABC reporter that was then tweeted (how professional) in which he called Kanye a “jackass.”

Even if it’s true, shouldn’t he talking about health care reform or something? There’s no such thing as an “off the record” remark when you’re President. He could’ve said that talk when he got home to Michelle.

I can only imagine how Kanye must feel right now. He’s definitely still wrong, but he’s got everyone from random two hit wonders to the leader of the free world clowning him.

At least he knows he did wrong. On The Jay Leno Show Kanye said:

“I don’t try to justify it because I was just in the wrong. That’s period. But I need to, after this, take some time off and just analyze how I’m going to make it through the rest of this life, how I’m going to improve. Because I am a celebrity, and that’s something I have to deal with. And if there’s anything I could do to help Taylor in the future or help anyone, I’d like — you know, I want to live this thing.”

Kanye appeared on the debut of The Jay Leno Show last night (what a huge debut for Jay Leno!), emotional and seeming extremely regretful.  When Leno asked what his mother would think of the incident, West clammed up and on the verge of tear.  “I need to, after this, take some time off and just analyze how I’m going to make it through the rest of this life, how I’m going to improve.”  He received a good response from the audience — let’s see if this will be some helpful damage control.

‘Ye performed “Run This Town” with Jay-Z and Rihanna, her first television appearance in months.

Is Joe Plotting On Michael’s Kids?

Published by Runteldat on Tuesday, July 14, 2009 at 12:00 am.


So they’re saying Papa Joe Jackson has already come up with a plan to pimp out Michael Jackson’s kids via a new threesome called the Jackson 3.

Ian Halperin, who claims to be Jackson’s biographer, told the Sun:

“Joe wants the children to go on a world tour in 2010. He has also already offered recording contracts to two of Michael’s kids. Now he is talking about getting them the world’s best backing band and taking them on tour as The Jackson Three.”

He said his source was “extremely close” to the family and may soon speak publicly out of concern for Mike’s kids.

He added:

“One of the family members is livid. He is saying Joe seems intent to do this no matter what.”

Yeah, sure. Joe is about to make his kids the Hannah Montana remix.

This story is about as real as the late great Michael’s hair, and if he you actually believe any of this you need to bang your head against the wall.

The only concern any of these folks running off at the mouth with these ridiculous stories have is limited to their bank accounts.

Was Michael Jackson Murdered?

Published by Runteldat on Monday, July 13, 2009 at 12:00 am.


And we’re off…with the conspiracy theories. Now that authorities have not ruled out foul play in the death of Michael Jackson, the kinfolk have come out to share their own beliefs with the world.

First Joe Jackson revealed his suspicions in an interview with Good Morning America on Friday, and now LaToya Jackson is said to have chimed in with her own theories surrounding Michael Jackson’s sudden death.

News of the World reports that LaToya claims to know who is responsible for her brother’s death and is determined to see them brought to justice.

As quoted in tabloid, LaToya says, “I feel it was all about money. Michael was worth well over a billion in music publishing assets and somebody killed him for that. He was worth more dead than alive.”

She went on to add that the conspirators used powerful prescription drugs to keep Michael Jackson submissive and under control and also kept him away from his family.

She also said that that close to $2 million worth of cash and jewelry was taken from Michael Jackson’s rented mansion and has not been accounted for.

Lastly, she said that Michael did not want to perform the 50 London shows he had signed on for, but was pressured into that agreement.

I’m not about to call Scooby Doo and the Mystery Machine in on this one. I’ll let you all decide what to believe.
