    Joe Jackson, the father and longtime manager of pop icons The Jackson 5, has died at 89.

    He passed away Wednesday in Los Angeles at around 3:30 a.m., TMZ reported.

    He was hospitalized earlier this month with terminal cancer.

    My sympathy to his family. :rip:

    Music would be different if it wasn't for this man and what his family has contributed to it. Especially his son Michael has inspired so many other artists who came after him and also the Jackson 5 which was one of the first boybands.

    I don't get it. He allegedly beat his family and even allegedly molested them, but they still adored him. Huh?

    So... Joe Jackson is dead.

    Good.

    Stockholm Syndrome. They don't know anything but Joe's "fatherly" touch.

    I could have sworn that MJ said he molested him, too.

    I do like the outfit La Toya wore at his wake, so subtle, so feminine and yet so classy:
