Janet Jackson said she will understand if her brother Michael Jackson wants to have a solo career instead of reforming with Jackson Five.
Should Michael Jackson decide to stick to his solo career and not participating in his brothers' scheme to reform Jackson Five, he will get a support from his little sister, Janet Jackson. Standing behind Michael's back, Janet claimed she will understand if he doesn't want to join the siblings group but will get really excited if Michael does.
"I know it's been kind of tough for Mike," Janet said. "Maybe he just wants to continue to be a solo artist and if that's what he wants, you have to respect his wishes. But what an impact it (a reunion) would have on the world. (I'd) be the first in line to buy a ticket."
The reunion of Jackson Five was first brought up by Jermaine Jackson who insisted that Michael should be part of it because "he is a Jackson". Jermaine further confirmed that Michael was present when meetings discussing the plan were conducted last year. He also predicted that their come back will commence "sometime in 2008".
Michael is working on his new studio album which is expected to be released later this year. In the mean time, the 25th anniversary edition of his most successful album, 'Thriller' will be released on February 11, featuring the new remixes of his classics like 'Billie Jean', 'Beat It', 'The Girl Is Mine' and many more.
