Fans of Michael Jackson should see this video interview with Joe Jackson. In addition to Joe exploiting Michael on the premiere of “This Is It,” there’s also a question of permission for using “Man in the Mirror” in the background.

Good work!

Don’t miss all six parts of the interview Joe gives Jerry Olivarez of Brenden Theatres as they try to scrub clean Joe’s much chronicled terrible relationship with Michael. As the saying goes, “You can’t beat it with a stick.”

Was Joe paid for all this, too? Since this is a man who promoted a record label four days after Michael died, and brought a Jackson imitator to the BET Awards, all I can say is: you decide.
