Who Ask Them To Speak?

I know that Michael knew a lot of people in his life and some of those people know when to state something or be quiet. However, there are some people that he knew or people claim he knew, that should not have a say. No one asked for their opinion and for the most part, no one cares for their opinion. In this entry, I am going to list the people who felt that they needed to state something in regards to the Jackson family situation when they were better off silent. 

Tanay "Jackson": 

Do you see an resemblance? 

A few years ago, Tanay came forward to state that Tito Jackson, was her biological father. If true, that would make Michael and Janet her aunt and uncle. When I first heard the story, I wanted to laugh but at the same time, it could be possible because you never know with anyone, especially the Jackson family. When I saw a picture of her, I saw a resemblence but that was it. Tanay was also trying to pursue a singing career and that would make anyone doubt her story. Even though I was doubting her story, I decided to friend her on facebook in hopes of communicating with her about her suppose family. I did commuinicate with her and I asked her about her family. Tanay told me how someone pretending to be her supposed cousin, Paris, was communicating with her, she had a good relationship with her supposed father, Tito and that she spoke to her suppose family about something but I have forgotten what it was. Whatever the case, even though I had my doubts, I still decided to leave her on as a friend on facebook. Tanay would post videos of her performing her "music" and I have never watched any of it because I am not interested in her "music" or what she does for that matter. Here is video of this woman making a fool of herself. 

Sidenote: I got sidetracked when I was looking for a video of this Tanay person, I saw this one -


Alright, back to the subject at hand - 

This woman is serious about her music career. Sad. 

Last week, Tanay did something that I did not see coming - she did and interview with various entertainment/tabloid shows and added her two cents into the whole Jackson family drama. I am going to post an article about what she stated and a video. I will share my thoughts afterwards. 

Katherine Jackson should not be raising Michael Jackson's children, according to her own granddaughter.
Tito Jackson's daughter, Tanay Jackson, thinks it's just too much for her ailing 82-year-old grandmother."I don't think she should continue watching the kids. I just feel like she needs to rest. I feel like she does not need to be under the stress of the whole situation," said Tanay.
Tanay, a performer like her famous relatives, says she's trying hard not to take sides in the civil war between Paris and aunt Janet Jackson.
"Janet is a strong person and being a very strong aunt, and she's just putting her foot down," said Tanay.
She believes that Michael's final wishes should be respected. His will leaves everything to hismother and three children. Several of Michael's siblings, including Janet and Jermaine, are contesting the will's validity.
"If Michael wanted to put his brothers and sisters in the will, he would have," said Tanay.
Here is video of what she stated - 


I am trying not to state something that would get me a lawsuit..... I want to know who ask this woman to even talk about a family that never acknowledged her as one of their own? She has no idea what the hell is going on so.... She does not seem to be knowledgeable about the situation so what gives? She stated that Katherine is "too old" to take care of the children - ok, we KNOW that. It is because of her age and the fact that there are too many Jacksons all over the place that she has help from other Jacksons like T.J., Janet, Randy, Rebbie, etc. It is clear as day that Katherine is way over 75 so we all know that she is too old to be taking care of the children. However, that does not mean that she is not CAPABLE of taking care of the children. Katherine is a great mother/grandmother/great-grandmother and since Tanay is not a mother, she has no idea what it is like to be a mother. As for opinions about the will - I guess Tanay is not LISTENING and READING what her supposed uncle and aunts have been stating - THE WILL IS INVALID. Michael did not write or sign the will and if he did, he was not going to put his siblings on the will anyway. The siblings do not want anything to do with the will other than to show the public that the will is invalid and the executors of the Estate need to step down because they are giving Katherine a lot of problems and for a woman her age, the last thing she needs is stress and a stroke because of the stress. That is why she went to Arizona to get the rest. I feel that if this Tanay person wants to come off of smart and reasonable, she has to be knowledgeable of what is really going on instead of getting second hand views from the television screen and the Internet. When Tanay spoke out to the media (if you do a google search on her right now, you will see all of the media outlets getting her side of the situation out there. It looks like her "promotion" for her "music" is working out for her. Using that Jackson name can do wonders. SMH.) Tito's real children, Taryll and Taj spoke out on twitter against her. Read their tweets -

Her supposed brothers are throwing that shade. Classic. 

I am glad that the brothers did this because it is people like Tanay that makes things harder for them. The woman wants to have a music career by using the last name Jackson to get there. I find it fitting that when things start to look bad for the family, Tanay makes her move and start telling her opinion about what is going on. If these people were her actual family, then why the hell is she even coming forward talking about a situation she knows nothing about? This woman even sued Tito back in 2009 so that he can acknowledge that he is her father. The woman is a lame human being and needs to go and sit down somewhere. Someone like her should not speak about Katherine in that way and get away for it. 

Geraldine Hughes:

Geraldine Hughes

Geraldine Hughes was a legal secretary for Larry Feldman during the 1993 false allegations against Michael. When Michael was falsely accused of child abuse in 2003, Geraldine decided to write a book called Redemption: The Truth Behind The Michael Jackson Child Molestation Allegations about what she witnessed during the 1993 situation. Geraldine received a lot of feedback from the MJ fan community that were positive and even had Michael's family reach out to her. I was happy that Geraldine had the guts to tell her story in a book and let people know what she witnessed and I felt that her book had to get out there to the masses so that people would know what she witnessed. In a way, I am relieved that she did that but she did it too late, in my opinion. However, she is not mentioned on this blog because of her book. It is something completely different. I understand that there are some people who are invested in Michael and his legacy want what is best for his legacy and his children. I get that and I understand that. I also understand that there are limits and people should not state things without looking into the situation. So, when I was on facebook last week, I saw her "statement" about the situation that was happening in the Jackson family. I decided to save what she stated on facebook. 

Geraldine's statement.... is she serious???

This statement is interesting to me because if you read it carefully, she is insulting the very people that questioned the validity of the will - Randy, Janet, Jermaine (before he remove his name) and Rebbie. Last year, Geraldine was at California "covering" the preliminary hearings regarding the Conrad Murray trial when she was told a Jackson family member to stop speaking to the press and was banned from the courtroom. Here is her facebook status about that and a link to her blog entry that goes in depth - 

Sometimes, people just need to be quiet. 

The link to her blog about why she was banned - 

I feel that when the very people from the Jackson family who banned her from speaking for Michael last year are the ones that she is insulting in her recent post. Why would she thank Paris for her bad behavior? Why would she be proud of what she and her brother did? She was proud of them insulting their family because of misinformation and telling their private business to the world? Ms. Hughes was still angry that the Jacksons saw her true intentions and told her to go away. Geraldine might have done something for Michael that was right but she does not need to get props for it. If she truly cared, she should not expect anything from his family and do what she has to do. If the family had to ban her from what she did, they had a very good reason of doing so. No one ask her to even state anything, let alone talk to the very people that help kill this man. Her statement in regards to the recent saga in the Jackson family proves to me that she was doing this "defending of Michael's legacy" for the fame and not for the truth. 

Grace Rwaramba:

Grace was the nanny of Michael's children when he was with us. I am not a fan of Grace and it has nothing to do with her being around Michael or her being a nanny to Michael's children. Grace felt, even though no one was even thinking about her, that she needed to release a statement about the situation. I am going to post what she stated and then I will state my views afterwards - 

MESSAGE FROM GRACE RWARAMBA  In January of 1997, Michael Jackson asked me to leave my job as Personnel Director at MJJ Productions and help him take care of a son that would be born a month later. That son was Prince. Little did I know that I would spend the next 12 years of my life helping his raise Prince, Paris and Blanket from the moment we brought them home from the hospital.
Everyone knows that Michael went to great lengths to protect his children from the public eye. While the use of veils and masks was unconventional, it only highlights how important this issue was to him. He understood, probably better than anyone, that growing up as a public figure, especially in the entertainment business, can be a recipe for disaster. We can all probably name several child or young stars who struggled and in some cases failed to move into normal adult lives because of the pressures they faced as children.
The recent drama surrounding Michael’s mother Katherine, the ongoing custody issues and the now public dispute between Paris and Janet is exactly what Michael wanted to protect his children from. These matters have been further complicated by Gladys Knight’s and others recent and well intentioned comments about Paris. I have great respect and admiration for Mrs. Knight. And while I agree with the spirit of her comments, attacking Paris in public is not the answer. 
Michael taught his children to respect their elders; Paris and her brothers understand that well. Any parent also knows that children that age will test boundaries and assert themselves in a way that deserves discipline and sometimes an appropriate level of punishment. What Mrs. Knight fails to realize is that Paris is still getting to know her extended family. When Michael was around, the children had very little contact with their aunts and uncles. They did not have the benefit of being raised and disciplined by other family members who loved them. They are now learning to live and exist outside the ‘Michael Jackson bubble.’ There will be growing pains, and the kids, like other kids their age, will make mistakes. They will say and tweet stupid things and even offend the very people trying to protect their best interests. The difference between Paris and all other kids her age is the rest of the world will be watching.
Please, be fair to Paris. Give her the chance to make and learn from her mistakes without demonizing her. She is a spirited, very expressive and dramatic young girl. The traits that made her the apple of her father’s eye are the same traits that she must learn to control as she matures into adulthood. Let’s be careful not to dim her spirit. It breaks my heart to think that Paris and her brothers could become the subject of endless criticism for simply being kids. 
Michael loved his children very much. He gave them the tools they will need to become good and decent individuals. I am confident that in time, Paris and her brothers will learn that their family loves and wants what’s best for them. Until then, please take her tweets with a grain of salt. No child should have 700,000 followers on twitter or any other social media platform.

If I was Grace, I would not even think of releasing any statement. There are things that I know about Grace that I cannot state on this blog publicly. The last thing I need is a lawsuit. I will state that Paris is not a celebrity and I do not like what she did to her uncle and aunt. What Gladys Knight stated is something that should have been stated. Paris is not going to run the show because she is Michael Jackson's daughter. At the end of the day, she should have respected her elders. Since she felt the need to bash her uncle and aunt PUBLICLY, it showed that what Michael taught them about respecting their elders did not work on Paris and in that case, it failed on her. Grace does not understand that because she did far worse things to Michael that not even the Estate can accept. For Grace to even comment on this situation shows how much of a hypocrite she truly is. However, I need to end it here. I am going a bit too far.
