The family of the late pop icon, Michael Jackson marked what was supposed to be his 60th birthday.
August 29 marks 60 years from when the late singer was born and his family didn’t just let the day go quietly.
Although the celebration was low key compared to previous ones,
Jackson’s eldest son Prince, 21, posted what seemed like an order from a fan to acknowledge the day of his father’s birth. He explained that he rather chose to remember his dad in “a different, intimate, and personal way.”
Micheal Jackson’s brothers Tito and Jackie, shared old photos of the king of pop to mark his 60th birthday.
Tito shared a throwback photo he took with Michael.
planned to attend as well, but it was Prince and Paris who were designated to be part of a presentation to Michael from his late friend Elizabeth Taylor’s AIDS Foundation. (Paris serves as an ambassador for the organization.) Celeb deejay Mark Ronson, who dropped a five-minute remix of a few of Jackson’s songs called “Diamonds Are Invincible,” was set to spin, and a surprise eight-time Grammy winner was also part of the slated entertainment. The celebration was to follow a performance of Cirque du Soleil’s Michael Jackson tribute show, Michael Jackson: One.
As for Michael’s sister Janet Jackson, who’s won five Grammys by the way, the day was about releasing a new video clip — a nod to her brother’s extravagant music video for “Remember the Time.” In it, the “That’s the Way Love Goes” singer, who worked with social media stars Kwaylon “BlameItOnKway” Rogers and Andrew “King Bach” Bachelor on the project, plays a royal highness evaluating dancers who’ve come to perform for her. It’s a role similar to the one that model Iman played when the iconic MJ mini-movie music video, co-starring Eddie Murphy, a trunkful of snakes, and countless dancers alongside Michael, was released in 1992.
To celebrate the post humous birthday, MJ’s children will be attending a party organized by Mandalay Bay in Las Vagas, USA.
