News and Notes: Michael says it ain’t so

Pop-singer Michael Jackson has released a statement calling BS on big brother Jermaine shooting his mouth off about a series of Jackson 5 reunion concerts in 2009, according to the BBC.

“My brothers and sisters have my full love and support, and we’ve certainly shared many great experiences, but at this time I have no plans to record or tour with them,” stated Jackson.

The 50-year-old Jackson, whose “Thriller” video is always a hit at Halloween, apparently has mostly Jackson 5-minus-4 on his mind these days.

“I am now in the studio developing new and exciting projects that I look forward to sharing with my fans in concert soon,” he added.

Jermaine Jackson announced earlier this week at an event in Sydney that the Jackson 5 and sister Janet Jackson would be hitting the road for a series of concerts in 2009.
