Jermaine Jackson is changing his famous name. But not by much.
Jackson filed court papers in L.A. on Tuesday to change his last name to Jacksun, citing "artistic reasons" for the slight alteration.
While the world likely lets out a collective sigh of relief that the latest bizarre headline to plague this family this year is something laughable (this summer's “kidnapping” of Katherine Jackson, ongoing family battles, etc.) , we are waiting for Jackson to explain these “artistic reasons” in an overwrought press conference, which most likely will also plug some Jacksun-related product.
Maybe Jermaine is gearing up for a solo career relaunch. Having a brand new surname that evokes sunshine could distract from the weight that comes with being a J-a-c-k-s-o-n, the brother of pop giants Michael and Janet.
