It seems like every poor member of the Jackson clan (except Janet) is on their hustle game HARD to let us know how close THEY were to the King of Pop. Latoya just released this commemorative song, the delusional lyrics and self reflection in her bi-racial mini-me are hilarious at best. The song and singing is not bad in and of itself> letoya just shouldn’t be the one doing it. The writer on What Would Thembi Do says:
The least they could have done is splice in a photo montage or something. Meanwhile, the song itself isn’t too bad, but unfortunately the lyrics demonstrate her delusions – “Parted by the fame we grew to only know.” WE? What do you mean “we,” paleface? And yes I do notice the ridiculous lighting meant to camouflage her aging plastic-y face that makes her look 3 shades lighter. When discussing this with a friend of mine he suggested that CNN do a version of Black In America just looking at Latoya and using her existence to explain the ill-effects that slavery and Jim Crow continue to have on black folks.
