MICHAEL JACKSON's father JOE has followed in his most famous son's footsteps and invested in an amusement park - he's become a shareholder in a new venture in Vietnam.
The Jackson family patriarch joined fellow investors in the Long An province, near Ho Chi Minh City on Monday (14Feb11) for a special ceremony marking the launch of Happyland, a luxury $2 billion project, reports local news outlet VietnamNet.
Joe Jackson tells the website, "I like discovering different cultures in the world. I like this project the most because it is located in a beautiful cultural and natural space."
But Jackson will have a long wait before he can treat his grandkids to a trip to Happyland - construction on the site, which will include a five-star hotel, a water park, movie theatres and restaurants, is not expected to be complete until 2014.
The King of Pop was known for his love of rollercoaster rides and created his own amusement park at his Neverland Ranch in California.

@corlista: your comments about joe are not only stupid and childish, but also negative and disgusting. LEAVE THE POOR MAN ALONE and LET HIM LIVE W/O CRITICIZING EVERY STEP HE TALES . hes trying to do sth. theres nothing wrong in what hes doing. WHAT IS YOUR PROBLEM? hes 81, dont u think he has to be APPLAUDED intead just for the simple fact that HE STILL HAS BATTERIES TO INVEST AND START STH AT HIS AGE!! isnt that A POSITIVE REMARKABLE attitude towards life? i am tired of people picking on joseph. if it wasnt for HIM, there would be NO MICHAEL. can someone see that?

Well said MilenaK. Any person with good IQ would see the positive side of Joes efforts. Dont get too mad with these people who can not make rational sense out of what Joe is doing at age 81 because they can not do it themselves at very active age. You will be interfering with the work of God because he did not give them much IQ and you can not blame God for his work. He is supreme. Some people are just born unintelligent and they dont realize they are not because they are not that is why they say things you find very stupid because you are too intelligent. To Momosis3: Please dont let yourself down as well. If you love MJ as you expressed to him at your end note, you would try to follow a little bit of his ways, the strongest of which was to choose words and think very carefully before saying anything. I dont believe you are as dumb as the other guy who gave a strangest comment, I think you have made a careless comment because you did not think carefully about what you had to say

Dear Mr Joe Jackson. According to Vietnam media that you are going to invest your wealth to two billion dollar project in Ben Luc district,Long An province in Vietnam.It offers everything from five stars hotel,shopping mall,luxury apts complex..ect...and you name it.All Vietnamese newspapers are flashing your photo signing a business agreement with Happyland project management with a victory smile.Vietnam Communist Party officials treated you during your stay in Vietnam like no less than a king.It is your own business and with moolah you can do whatever as you pleased but in this business deal is totally different,Mr Jackson.You are from far away coming to Vietnam (a stalin style country) to do some investments,there are some painful things happened on this bloody project which you never have been known.Here are what happened: 1/-In order to have land for this project,the Vietnam Evil Communist Party robbing land from scores of thousand poor farmers without mercy.Whoever protested got killed,beaten,jailed.Now all farmers do not have any land to build a hut and farm to survive to feed their families.That is why the nickname of your project is "a bloody project" to all Vietnamese people.Whoever doing business direct or indirect with this project is kike sucking blood of the Vietnamese poor farmers and eating bones of Vietnamese poor farmers. 2/- doing business with the Vietnam Evil Communist Party is always in losing position.They do their best to lure you in then they also do their best to rob you without mercy.They absolutely are killers and robbers,Mr Jackson. Mr Jackson-For the sake of the victims of this project we are asking you to place a cancellation of this bloody project.Your son Michael Jackson was an idol of all Vietnamese people,please do not let them down for something negative. Thank you for your time of reading our concerns and we deeply am appreciate for your reconsidering your plan of investment in Vietnam.Best regardN Le

Let me say this very clearly Joe Jackson has the rights to whatever his son has and had he is indeed Michael's father the attorney's and music promoters and AEG and Sony have no rights blood is thicker then water any day what gives the rights to a court to over look family and give anything to money hungry promoters if the Jackson family want to make decisions to promote Michael in any form or fashion they should have that right. it was People that had negative things to say about Michael not his family it was people who believe everything the media put out not his family his family stood by his side from day one to the last day it is his family that has stood firm on all causes not the public everyone showed their love for Michael after he was gone not while he was here when it counted he was so much trying to impress the fan when he should have been impressing himself and maybe he would still be here look at what you all are doing the same thing you was when Michael was here listening to what someone else had to say and running with it. Joe Jackson was a strong black man and father any black family knows what that means. stop acting like you don't cause we know better. it is shameful for people to still carry on like this and not realize it has caused the death of such a beautiful person that person was a son cousin nephew friend father now he is in our memory and all people can do now is pick on his family as you did him. this world is full of crap... in other countries they dont worry about other people business they worry how they can make each other better not america we destroy each other everytime talking feeding off each others pain it not a good day until someone has a bad one right people. if the american people dont get the stuff in order we will find ourselves in a lot of trouble everyone need to stop and really look at the signs of time do you thin this world will last if we all keep going in the direction we are going.... american are getting poorer and other countries are getting rich why cause the more we are in other peples business we are forgetting reality growing stupid by the day. lazy and to busy in other folks business... GROW UP
