Early life

La Toya Jackson was born in Gary, Indiana, the fifth of nine children born to Joseph and Katherine Jackson. After her mother became a devout Jehovah's Witness in 1966, Jackson, along with brother Michael Jackson, chose to follow. Jackson would spend some of her time (alongside her mother) evangelising door-to-door. "Every morning, Michael and I witnessed, knocking on doors around Los Angeles, spreading the word of Jehovah."[1] By 1974, Jackson was brought into the spotlight with her family after her father arranged for the family to perform shows in Las Vegas and in other cities.[2] By 1979, Jackson and her sisters Rebbie and Janet formed a short-lived group, though they never sang live together and soon broke away due to arguments over the direction of the group.[3] The next year, Jackson began work on her first solo album.

Music career

In 1980, Jackson released her self-titled debut. The first single "If You Feel The Funk", became a minor hit, climbing into the Top 40 of the R&B chart, but the single and album failed to generate commercial interest. She also provided the opening scream on her brothers, The Jacksons in the 1980 hit, This Place Hotel. Her three subsequent albums also met with limited success, although she scored a minor Billboard Hot 100 hit with 1984's "Heart Don't Lie", which peaked at #56. Her 1985 single "Baby Sister" is also notable as a moderate success, as it received one of three Outstanding Song Awards at the 1985 World Popular Song Festival in Japan.[4] La Toya Jackson is the self-titled debut album from American singer La Toya Jackson. ...

In 1988, Jackson released the album La Toya, which featured the single, "You're Gonna Get Rocked!". The album also included a track titled "Just Say No", which was written for the Reagan administration's anti-drug campaign. [5] Neither the album or the singles managed to make any sort of impact, despite production by Full Force. The album is notable for being the first one Jackson released after changing her management. [6] Jack Gordon became Jackson's new manager following the departure of her father. The pair later married in 1989, into a relationship which, Jackson claims, was an abusive one.[7] The marriage ended in 1996, after Gordon beat Jackson for refusing to perform.[8] La Toya is the 5th studio album by American singer La Toya Jackson. ...

Jackson later released two cover albums, one of country music and another of Motown hits, in the mid-1990s. She plans to release her first album in over a decade with Startin' Over. [1] The album has been delayed several times: Jackson's record label, Ja-Tail Records (distributed through Universal Music Group) has stated that extenuating circumstances have prevented the release. As of mid-2007, a release date has yet to be confirmed; the last tentative one having passed in Summer 2006.

Playboy and the Jackson family estrangement

La Toya in her infamous Playboy video

In 1989, Jackson ventured into modelling, she states that it was her own decision to pose nude for Playboy, showing her breasts, buttocks and pubis area.[9] However, according to several later interviews Jackson maintains that the 'playboy' incident was not her idea and what she did (and the things she stated in her book) was under the control and threat of violence from her then husband, Jack Gordon. She explains further that her apparent willingness to pose nude was part of her then-husband's plan to sexually exploit her for millions of dollars. She said she complied out of fear and this was not something she would have done otherwise.[10][11] Image File history File links Latoyaplayboy. ...

Her first cover and layout was one of the most successful issues in Playboy's history. At its time of release, it sold over 8 million copies, going on to become the best selling issue of the magazine ever. She posed again in Playboy in 1991 to promote her autobiography and subsequently in a 1994 video for the magazine, becoming one of the first celebrities to have a Playboy video aired. It was later revealed that Jackson initially refused to pose for the second spread and for the video, however, Gordon beat her into submission. [12] Natalia Sokolova on the front cover of Playboys Wet & Wild: Slippery When Wet video Playboy Videos are a series of videos released by Playboy Enterprises, Inc. ...


After marrying Gordon in September 1989, Jackson distanced herself from certain members of her family, although she claims to have spoken with several of her siblings during this period. Her 1991 autobiography La Toya: Growing up in the Jackson Family was probably the main reason for this estrangement, as it made scathing criticisms of several family members, including the allegation that her father physically abused members of the family, notably herself and sister Rebbie.[13] Rebbie Jackson denied these claims, while other members of the family hypothesised that that part of the book had, in fact, been written by Gordon. Physical abuse is abuse involving contact intended to cause pain, injury, or other physical suffering or harm. ...

In 1993, Jackson, at a press conference overseas, declared that she believed rumors that brother Michael had sexually abused children. She later stated in an interview that her accusations at this time were delivered under threat of violence from her then husband. She has claimed that these accusation would not have been made by her had she not been under threat [14]Furthermore, the initial accusations of child molestation surfaced that year, prompting members of the family to refute the charges, claiming that Jackson was "controlled and used" by Gordon - Jackson's father wrote about Gordon's control in his book The Jacksons. Two years later, she made headlines again for announcing the so-called "Jackson Family Secret Phone Number Line". In 1996, however, Jackson walked out on Gordon after he attempted to force her to dance at a strip club in Cleveland, Ohio. The former Jehovah's Witness (she left the faith in 1987) refused to do so and in return, was booed and heckled by the predominantly male crowd.[15] Image File history File links Ltjcover. ...

On the show, Jackson demonstrated her phobia of cats, after she began hysterically screaming and locked herself in a squad car. This fear, she revealed, was due to a childhood memory in which a relative was attacked by a cat. She underwent on-screen therapy to try and relieve her of her phobia. A single entitled "Armed and Famous" was planned, but the title was changed to "I Don't Play That" shortly before it was sent to radio stations, where it failed to take off, on January 29, 2007, due to CBS' cancellation of the show.
