Seems to me that the Jacksons will always be in the news. LaToya featured in this year's Celebrity Big Brother. Marlon is involved in a controversial development to turn a former slave port into a luxury resort that will house a Jackson Five museum, five-star hotel and slavery memorial. The king himself Michael, has announced a series of comeback concerts at the O2 arena in London.
