Jackson Brothers Set To Perform?+Arrest In Steve McNair Case+Ne-Yo Claps Back At Haters

It looks like the Jackson 4 are about to take their show on the road. Tito, Jermaine, Marlon, and possibly Jackie are set to be flown to Montego Bay this weekend for the Reggae Sumfest. They will be put up in a swanky hotel and will perform songs Jackson 5 songs and others. All expenses are paid--but they will be doing a meet and greet with fans.

There's been an arrest in the Steve McNair murder. Convicted felon Adrian J. Gilliam Jr. was arrested by ATF agents in Nashville today. He was the person who sold Steve McNair's mistress Sahel the gun she shot Steve and herself with. Gilliam's been charged with illegal possession of a firearm.

Ne-Yo is mad blogging. He's pissy at folks who are questioning his manhood because he was crying on stage. So he posted an exclusive blog over at Global Grind: Basically, I have an issue with not knowing when to say enough is enough, so last night in Manchester, my body said it for me. I got on stage energized and ready to go, even tho for the last 5 days I've been dealing with a sinus infection. I paid it no real mind, and kept on going, like I always do. My voice couldn't take it. From the first song I knew something was wrong. I shoulda stopped there, but I come from a school where no matter what, the show must go on. It wasn't until about 4 songs in that I came to the painful realization that my voice was done, literally nothing left, and that I would have to stop the show. Now let me explain something to you: When I say this music, that stage, my fans, THIS is my life, I'm not saying it cause it sounds good in a sound bite. THIS IS MY LIFE!! Not much else matters to me, honestly. My music, my family and the people that appreciate my music.....the fans. THAT'S ABOUT IT!! I've never had to stop a show, never dreamed I'd ever have to. So when I had to walk out on that stage and tell 12,000 of the people responsible for making me who I am that I could not perform for them, it literally broke my heart. I cried harder than I have in a very long time with no shame whatsoever. To anyone out there that would like to question my manhood because of this I'll say this to you: If the one thing you cared about more than anything else in the world was threatened or even taken from you, if you knew that the people you cared for the most you had to disappoint and it was your fault... and this didn't spark some kind of emotional outbreak within you...then with no shame I'll say you are truly a stronger man than I. He ended with some choice words. Read the rest here. The Randomness: 1. The Maxwell Interview post has been fixed. Check it here.

Asea: There is absolutely

Asea: There is absolutely nothing wrong with a man crying… BUT - I don’t feel that was reason enough to just ball in front of 12,000 people! LOL!! …And then write a blog about it. I mean yea, who cares what anyone thinks, but he was being a bit overdramatic. Neyo - take a Midol, get some rest, and step back into reality. Singers loose their voices all the time. Shit happens. Be thankful you didn’t fall of stage and break your legs. That would have been something to cry about.

Neyo is very talented and shouldn't respond to haters downing another black man who made it to the top without selling drugs or calling women bitches and hoes. I swear some black women don't know the definition of a good man.

I commend Ne-yo for

I commend Ne-yo for attempting to perform under the circumstances and for speaking to his fans to personally inform them of how he was feeling. I can't believe that his manhood was in question because he felt so passionate about his craft and his fans....although I do feel that he was flexing his acting muscles just a tad bit there with all of the crying lol. On the other hand, Day 26 was suppose to have performed on Saturday, July 11th in D.C. and did not have the respect nor the concern whatsoever to come out and express why they would not perform. We, the audience & fans, had to hear from a radio personality from 95.5 that they refused to perform due to a financial dispute. Be that that may have been the case, it was insensitive for Day 26 to leave their fans hanging as they did when they were supposedly in the building. Trey Songz came through for his fans though and he performed very well.

WA GWAN.: Uh-HUH. I bet u were one of those who thought Paris was faking it too. Cuz the Jackson’s are Freaks , they cant possible have feelings. All of us are hurt and sad but not them, Mike’s family. Black ppl will never have. U never hear white folks bringing down the Kennedy’s , or the Presley’s. Black PPL = Crabs in a Bucket!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you!

mmmk. Some folks are filled

mmmk. Some folks are filled with so much hate, and are very judgemental. 2 ppl stated above the the Jamaican govt asked the family to perform there. What is wrong with that? I'm sure they always had tours in the works, but with Micheal's busy schedule and such, I guess it never happened. I personally think it's a wonderful idea to have them perform in honor of their brother. I in no way see it as them trying to capitalize off of his fame. They were famous with and without him. Jermaine, Janet, Rebbie, Marlon... Hell, do your research ppl, almost all of them came out with solo albums, as well as their children...3T, Genevieve. These ppl have money, in no way were they just 'using' Micheal. Please stop with the hate! I would love to see them do many more shows, and if they are ever in Atl, I will be the first to by a ticket. I wasn't able to attend one of their concerts, or MJ's, so I would feel honored and appreciative to finally see one. I hope all in Jamaica enjoy the show and treat them with the respect and love that they deserve. Big Up Jamaican Massive!

If the Jacksons were invited

If the Jacksons were invited to perform as a tribute to their brother then I don't see anything wrong with that. It's really not too soon because they are memorializing him. I wouldn't be surprised if there are more invitations for them to perform as a tribute to Michael around the world. After all, he was even more popular outside of the United States. That is why he deserved the title "King of Pop." I do find it interesting that the media...gossip and otherwise..., seem to paint the Jacksons and anyone associated with Michael as always using him for money. As if the many false stories and accusations put out on Michael, by those outlets were not profitting to them. On Ne-yo..I am hoping his need to explain why he left the stage in tears was due to his respect for his fans and not because he needed to defend his manhood to some bloggers. And McNair situation, as sad and tragic as it was, he called it unto himself. He had a wife!!! If any woman was going to take him out, it should hvae been her.

charli skipper: let me copy

charli skipper: let me copy and paste my response from the last post. nobody’s questioning neyo’s manhood because it’s not quite that serious. but it wasn’t serious enough for him to be crying like he just found out he that he is NOT the father, either. ugh. and then to take it to: “this is what i love and to think that it might be taken away from me…” well, then, boo, take better care of yourself and chalk that performance up…..tryin to play the humble artist role. betch please. i’m a performer too. an out of work one. hell, i should be one the sobbin on somebody’s damn stage. Guess u have never been passionate about anything before. as a performer who is out of work, u need to find your inner passion maybe then you will get some shows and stop hating on neyo cos he doesnt want to be a performer like you thats out of work thats why he reacted that way.

binky: I know everyone deal

binky: I know everyone deal with death and grief their own way but come on, Jacksons. It is not a good look to go on a meet and greet and a tour, take time to mourn your brother and come together as a family.Neyo, okay boo. I like that you are in touch with your emotions and express your feeling but it is NOT that serious. We know you maybe under stress and your body couldn’t go anymore but come on.As for McNair, no comment on that situation it is sad but I still can’t feel sympathic towards him, his family yes but that could have been prevented. I agree with you on McNair, he was wayyyyyyyyy too thirsty and selfish as hell!!! When will athletes learn, i mean there has even been sit-coms devoted to this foolishness ie: "the game", so the jig is up everyone knows the deal. I don't feel bad for some of the wives either bcus they will knoe but stay in it for the money. Girls AND Players BYE!!!

Ummm we in jamaica are more

Ummm we in jamaica are more than happy to have the Jackson's. we've been having parties in honour of Michael Jackson since his death so they thought it fit to invite them down here to perform for the fans who never met but loved michael. I really dont see anything wrong with that at all. I actually think it would be good for them, at least I think that is something their brother would approve of. Geez!

There's nothing wrong with

There's nothing wrong with crying in public. Sometimes life get too stressful and you need to break down to stay sane. Those Jackson need to get real jobs ASAP. They have been trying for years to capture the glory days. Face it, no ones care about you old vultures exploting your brother memory. STFU Jackson BTW: Please put Papa Joe in a home.

What is wrong with a guy

What is wrong with a guy crying? Do you think that it would be easy to let 12,000 people down? Guys actually have feelings too and every once in a while they get the better of us. If he was crying over nothing, then that would be a bit weak. Seems like the only emotion guys can express in public nowadays is anger. Many women just want some Superthug that has no emotions but is somehow gonna stay with you when something younger and hotter walks buy. Chasing after guys like this is probably the reason many of you are single mothers....Ouch! But if the hat fits... All the real women appreciate a guy who can be strong, but can support and him in his time of weakness too. Behind every good man is a good ... You both strengthen each other. The real strength of a woman is not in being so argumentative and difficult that only a barbarian hand handle her, it is in being loyal, having control of her actions and emotions, supporting her family and helping make a good man a great man. The same goes for the brothers too... All this thugged out crap is foolishness and in reality is just weakness disguised. Realtalk.

Is it just me or has Tito Jackson become the better looking Jackson brother? Back in the day people dogged Tito for not being cute. He's actually the only one who looks like he hasn't had his nose and face altered and he's actually cute. Wow! How positions in life change.

Ne-Yo is still a punk ass

Ne-Yo is still a punk ass bitch. All singers go through that when they can't perform because their voice goes because of cold, the flu or whatever. It happens time to time when you are constantly singing. The point is you was crying like you mother had died. Keep yourself together it's not the end of the world. That's the point. Crying like a big ass baby. Lawd.

I also notice when a young black man takes his education seriously or is endowed with multi-creative talents some blacks are quick to call them gay.

Secondly, I love The Jacksons--but with Michael. Let's be real about it...I don't think anyone is interested in just seeing the brothers without their star power---Michael..RIP. Their concert is gonna turn out to be one big tribute to their younger brother anyway...More than half the crowd will be in tears by shows end. It wouldn't be the same. RIP Steve---Damn! What a way to go.. :/

And for all those questioning

And for all those questioning the Jacksons…you have to realize they had things in the works before Michael’s death. Nobody is mad at Janet for going back to work on a movie, so why can’t they carry on? Because Janet is making money off of HERSELF. She was already on the set of a movie. The JACKSONS are always talking about reuniting and they don't. Only reunited in 2001 for 20th anniversary. MJ fed them a bone; otherwise, it didn't seem like MJ was very interested after awful experience of Victory Tour, so, they really should think about grieving in private for the man and helping the mother figure out his estate with lawyers...and being kind to the children. They are selling stories and now this...it just seems like they are in to profiting now will iron is hot because there is no real interest to see them without MJ.
