Taj Jackson kündigt 3T-Tour in UK an/ Tribute-Tour zum 5. Todestag von MJ? + Big Reunion's

    • Wie man es fertig bringt rund 17 Jahre "out of showbuisiness" fast nur rund um die Ereignisse von MJ inclusive der Erziehung von Michaels Kindern (die letzten 5 Jahre) zu erklären ist schon bemerkenswert. Ok. Nippelgate und Prozess um den Tod der Mutter wurden auch noch erwähnt. Auch intressant, dass Vater Tito verschwinded geringe bis gar keine Erwähnung findet insbesondere bei Entscheidungen wie sollen die 3 schon als Kinder ins Showbuisiness starten, Auffangen nach Scheidung der Eltern und schließlich nach dem Tod der Mutter im Gegensatz zu MJ.

      Das hier ist übrigens eine ganz gute Zusammenfassung. Weiß jemand wo die 3 nach der Scheidung der Eltern 1988 lebten (TJ war damals 11). Bei Tito oder bei der Mutter?

      The Big Reunion: 27 things we learned from 3T, Eternal and A1

      There's just one band left to meet properly on The Big Reunion - yes, it's time for 3T to step up to the plate with talk of their aunt's nipples, being a Jackson and intense games of Pictionary. As if that wasn't enough, this episode also saw Eternal and A1 meeting Up again, so it was packed full of juice. Read on to find out what we learned from the instalment...

      1. 3T really were properly successful back in the day.
      Yes, yes, they had the Jackson connection, but seriously - in 1996 they were ranked second only to the Spice Girls as the biggest-selling group in Europe. That's intense. Of course, it basically ran in their veins, and there was super cute home video footage of them as children having a go at the old music thing.

      2. Michael Jackson refused to let 3T break into showbusiness as children.
      The guys say that the King of Pop taught them a lot, but one thing he didn't do was let them get into the business too early. Adorably, Taryll revealed that they used to pretend to be the Jackson Five ("Sometimes I would be Randy and Jackie...") but Michael wouldn't let them grab on to a record deal when they were Too young. "He wanted us to enjoy our childhood," TJ explained. That's both sweet and sad, because it suggests Michael didn't really enjoy his own childhood fame, doesn't it?

      3. 3T's career was unexpectedly halted, volume one
      The guys' mum Dee Dee "spearheaded" their career plans when they were kids, Taj said, but things got shaken up when she divorced their dad Tito in 1988. "I was 11 years old, living in a fairytale, everything great, and it came to a screeching halt," TJ said. But Michael was there to help them out.

      4. 3T's career was unexpectedly halted, volume two - and this one is a real tragedy.
      This was so hard to watch, but 3T signed a record deal in 1992 (TJ was just 14), and with their album two-thirds written in 1994, tragedy struck. Their mum was found dead in suspicious circumstances. Unsurprisingly, the boys decided that music wasn't really their priority at that point. "I couldn't cry like I wanted to cry in front of them," Taj said. "I had to be the strong one, the older brother, like she told me to be." That is just so sad. What a terrible thing to go through. Again, Michael was a source of comfort for them, and Taryll said he kept them motivated by reminding them to make their mum proud.

      5. For some reason, all anyone cared about when 3T started out was their uncle.
      In 1996, the guys decided to release an album and single... and guess what? The record label wanted them to release 'Why', which featured one Michael Jackson. Good on the boys for refusing and getting 'Anything' out there, though. Still, that didn't stop the MJ talk: "There was always something they wanted from our uncle in order to play us," TJ said. "Like, 'We'll play your song if you get us a giveaway to Neverland for our listeners'." Harsh. No big surprise that 3T skipped America and went to Europe, is it?

      6. 3T's career was unexpectedly halted, volume three
      Again, it's totally understandable, but 3T kind of put the whole music thing on the back burner in 1997, when they got the trial date for the wrongful death case regarding their mother. "It was hard to relive all that and be face to face with that guy," Taryll said, in what must be a huge understatement. When her ex-boyfriend was convicted of second degree murder, obviously it took a long time for the boys to get motivated by music again.

      7. 3T's career was unexpectedly halted, volume four
      Yeah, these guys really don't have much luck. After Michael inspired them to get back in the studio, they began work on their new album, picked a single and were all ready to go... and then Michael publicly went to war with Sony head Tommy Mottola ("He's mean, he's racist, and he's very, very, very devilish"). 3T ended up as "pawns in a huge chess game", as TJ put it, and were basically stuck on their label. Luckily, they could fall back on auntie Janet, who got them free of Sony - but they couldn't take their album with them. "We didn't do anything wrong," Taryll sighed. "It's just... we are who we are." At this point, they all felt pretty depressed. TJ "checked out", and Taj lost his "identity".
      16. 3T's career was unexpectedly halted, volume five
      After leaving Sony, 3T decided to sign to a label in France and started winning over fans again with their cover of 'Stuck on You'. But, in another display of their terrible luck, it all just happened to coincide with... Michael Jackson's trial (he was later acquitted). Suddenly, no-one wanted to play 3T's songs or videos. "It literally hit a brick wall," Taj sighed.

      17. 3T's career was unexpectedly halted, volume six
      "We have a song that's number one on the radio and all they want to talk about is your aunt's nipple." That's the kind of sentence that makes me love The Big Reunion. But it was bad news for 3T, who - just after the whole MJ trial was over and things were back on track - had to deal with Janet's breast-flop at the Super Bowl. Dearie me.

      18. 3T were rocked by the death of their uncle.
      Michael Jackson's death obviously shocked the world, but think about what it was like for his relatives. Taryll is obviously still devastated because he could barely say anything, apart from that "everything stopped". Taj felt like he lost another of his role models, and Taryll said it brought back memories of their mother's death - which is Why they made sure to look after Michael's kids. TJ said Michael was his "prime saviour", which is Why he became co-guardian of Michael's three children.

      19. 3T are all family men now.
      Taj is now married to a triplet ("They were named by their mother, we were named by our mother; I'm two years apart from Taryll and five years from TJ, and she's two minutes from one and five minutes from another"). Taryll isn't very interested in marriage, but he's been with his partner for ages and they have a couple of sons who are into the drums. ("I see how it happens," Taryll said. "I'm not saying it's going to happen, but I see how it starts.") And TJ has three kids with his wife ("They are my joy, they are my happiness"). Aww.

      20. Taj might be from a dynasty of musicians but he gets horrible stage fright.
      Taj admitted that he always feels sick before going on stage - Taj was a "complete fabrication", who hid behind his braids because he was projecting who he wanted to be but wasn't. His explanation of being two people - Toriano and Taj - made perfect sense to us, but obviously Taryll and TJ ripped it out of him, the meanies ("Wait, who am I talking to now?"). Brothers, who'd have 'em?

      21. The Jackson family loves a good game of Pictionary.
      Before the 3T boys headed to the UK for The Big Reunion, they had a big family gathering - complete with Katherine Jackson, Jermajesty and Prince, among others. And how do the Jacksons bond? Over Girls vs Boys Pictionary. "The guys have never lost," Taryll revealed. The boys did, indeed, win when Taj was speaking to camera. "They didn't even need me," he smirked, before joining them for a big hug-and-jump-in-a-circle celebration. Can we go party at the Jacksons', please?

    • 3T über ihre Karriere und Onkel Michael
      4. März 2014

      Im englischen TV-Spezial “The Big Reunion” haben 3T über ihre Karriere
      gesprochen und wie ihnen der King of Pop nicht nur da, sondern auch bei
      privaten Schicksalsschlägen half. Taj, Taryll und TJ – der das
      Sorgerecht für Michaels Kinder hat – erklären, wieso sie um die
      Jahrtausendwende gehindert wurden, ihr bereits aufgenommenes Album zu

      Im Jahr 1996 zählte 3T nach den Spice Girls als die sich am zweitbesten
      verkaufende Musikgruppe in Europa. Auf dem Markt: “Brotherhood”,
      erschienen bei MJJ Music, dem Label von Michael Jackson, das Sony Music
      untergeordnet war. (Das Album gibt es hier auf Amazon.de oder auf

      MJ wollte, dass die 3T ihre Kindheit ausleben

      Die Söhne von Tito Jackson berichteten von ihrer Kindheit, etwa wie sie
      oft “Jackson 5″ gespielt hätten und sagten in der Sendung “The Big
      Reunion”, dass Michael Jackson sie nicht zu jung ins Musikbusiness
      schicken wollte. “Wir hatten Major-Labels, die sich für uns
      interessierten. Unser Onkel wollte nicht, dass wir um die Zeit in die
      Öffentlichkeit gingen, er wollte, dass wir unsere Kindheit genossen”, so

      Im Jahr 1993 packte Michael Jackson einen ersten Song seiner Neffen,
      “Didn`t Mean To Hurt You”, auf das Soundtrack Album Free Willy, das
      unter seinem Label MJJ Music erschien. Erst 1995 folgte ein zweiter Song
      auf Free Willy 2, der Track “What Will It Take”. Im Januar 1996 dann
      wurde das Debut Album von 3T veröffentlicht: “Brotherhood”, das das
      History-Outtake “Why” als Duet mit Michael Jackson und “I Need You” mit
      ihrem berühmten Onkel in den Background Vocals enthielt. Weitere Hits:
      “Anything”, “24/7″, “Gotta Be You” oder das vom King of Pop produzierte
      “Words Without Meaning”.

      Mit dem Tod ihrer Mutter Dee Dee umgehen

      Noch kurz davor mussten die 3T einen schweren Schicksalsschlag
      hinnehmen, als ihre Mutter Dee Dee Jackson im August 1994 unter
      suspekten Umständen ums Leben kam. (sie war seit 1988 von ihrem Vater
      Tito geschieden). Einige Jahre später wurde ihr damaliger Ehemann wegen
      Mordes mit bedingtem Vorsatz verurteilt.

      “Es war unser Onkel und unser Vater, die uns inspirierten, weiter zu
      machen”, sagte TJ über die schwere Zeit. Und Taryll ergänzte, dass
      Michael sie angespornt habe, indem er ihnen sagte, das Beste um mit
      ihrem Tod zurechtzukommen sei, sie stolz zu machen.

      Bestimmt half ihnen zwei Jahre später auch der überwältigende Erfolg mit
      “Brotherhood” und die fast ausverkaufte Europa-Tournee. Doch Ende 1997
      mussten die drei Neffen in den Gerichtssaal – sie hatten einen Prozess
      gegen den damaligen Ehemann ihrer Mutter angestrebt, an dessen Ende
      Donald Bohana wegen Mordes mit bedingtem Vorsatz verurteilt wurde.

      MJs Streit mit Sony – das vorläufige Karriereaus für 3T

      Erneut sei ihnen u.a. Michael Jackson beigestanden und habe sie
      motiviert, zurück ins Studio zu gehen. Die 3T nahmen um die
      Jahrtausendwende ein gesamtes Album auf und hatten bereits eine erste
      Single ausgewählt, als sich Michael Jackson mit Sony Music zerstritt und
      dann im Jahr 2002 den Konflikt öffentlich austrug, indem er an zwei
      Fan-Partys über Sony-Boss Tommy Mottola herzog.

      Janet Jackson habe ihnen schliesslich geholfen und sie von dem Vertrag
      mit Sony Music befreit. Doch das bereits aufgenommene Album durften sie
      nicht mitnehmen.

      Im Jahr 2004 veröffentlichten 3T dann bei einem französischen Label ein
      anderes Album: “Identy” mit der Single “Stuck on you”. Noch weniger
      erfolgreich war das 2005, während dem Prozess gegen Michael Jackson
      veröffentlichte Album “3T Meets the Family of Soul”

      Sorgerecht für Michaels Kinder

      Der Tod von Michael Jackson hat die 3T, zu denen Michael seit deren
      Kindheit einen engen Draht hatte, tief getroffen. “Alles stoppte”, so
      Taryll und Taj sagte, er habe am 25. Juni 2009 ein weiteres Vorbild
      verloren. Zudem kamen die Erinnerungen an den tragischen Tod ihrer
      Mutter auf brutale Weise wieder hoch. Dies sei der Grund, weshalb sie
      sich so engagieren, um für Michaels Kidner Prince, Paris und Blanket zu
      sorgen. TJ sagte, Michael sei sein “beste Retter” gewesen, weshalb er
      offiziell, gemeinsam mit Katherine Jackson, Erziehungsberechtigter von
      Michaels Kinder ist.

      Die 3T haben eigene Familien

      Taj Jackson ist mit einer Frau verheiratet, die als Drilling auf die
      Welt kam und Taryll hat mit seiner Freundin zwei Söhne, die sehr am
      Schlagzeug spielen interessiert seien.
      TJ Jackson, der sich auch um Michaels Kinder kümmert, hat mit seiner
      Ehefrau drei eigene Kinder.
