Jermaine Jackson Wants To Change Last Name To Jacksun, Cool Or Stupid?
Michael Jackson might have been a strange guy, but some of his family members are every bit as odd. Just months after the deceased pop star’s mother was at the center of an alleged kidnapping scandal, MJ’s brother Jermaine has filed a petition with the Los Angeles County Superior Court to change his name… to Jermaine Jacksun.
The former Jackson 5 member hasn’t spoken publically about why he despises the “o” in his name so much, but according to TMZ, the fifty-seven-year-old listed “artistic reasons” in the court papers as the catalyst for his decision. It’s unclear what the hell that could possibly even mean, but when it comes to the Jackson family, sometimes it’s better to just accept things at face value without pushing the issue too much.
A hearing has officially been set for a judge to hear out Jermaine as to why he needs to be a Jacksun. Even if his request is granted, the entire process will take quite awhile so he can officially inform the public about the impending swap via newspaper ads and other mediums.
Given there’s no pronunciation alteration from Jackson to Jacksun, I’m dumbfounded as to why this is a worthwhile usage of time. What do you think? Is the last name Jacksun cool or stupid? Let us know your thoughts by voting in the poll below…
