Michael Jackson’s mother talks about being a mom again at age 83

By  |  275 Comments

What happens when you think your son is going to be around for another 20 or 30 years, and suddenly, he’s gone?  That’s what Michael Jackson’s mother Katherine had to deal with when her son passed away just five years ago.  Most people can relate to the pain of losing a child, and this mother’s pain is no different.  The only major difference is that the pain is shared by millions of people who loved him around the world.

Here are excerpts from the 60 Minutes Interview that Katherine did about the passing of her son Michael:


Welcome to 60 minutes. It’s hard to believe but last Thursday Michael Jackson would have turned 55. Alive, the man known as the King of Pop had an extraordinary career. But he was also the King of Controversy. Tonight his mother Katherine Jackson takes us inside the family compound. Where she breaks her silence on the scandals that dogged her son, her granddaughter’s attempted suicide and now new allegations of child molestation. It is a heartfelt and a time difficult conversation with a mother who is still coming to terms with the lost of her son.

Katherine Jackson:           That was the worst day of my life. Never had that feeling before and I never wanna feel like that again.

60 Minutes:                          Had you never felt this day would come?

Katherine Jackson:           I never thought this day would come. No.

60 Minutes:                          How has it changed your life?

Katherine Jackson:           Well, I have three children – more.

60 Minutes:                          You have three more children.

Katherine Jackson:           I have three more children to raise.

60 Minutes:                          Katherine Jackson’s life changed the day her son died. She now takes care of Michael’s children, Prince, Paris and Blanket. At 83 it is the last thing she expected to be doing.

60 Minutes:                          At your wonderful age, do you feel ok to be a mother again?

Katherine Jackson:           Yes, yes. Today it’s little more difficult than was the days I raised my kids because it’s a little more hard because we are changing a lot. It’s hard, but it’s fine.

60 Minutes:                          What kind of child was he? What kind of cant little boy was he?

Katherine Jackson:           Michael, when he was young. He had a lot of energy…

    She is too old for this. Where is the mother?

    The mothers probably signed over their rights to the children in exchange for millions of dollars. Sad to say, but money can make some people do some egregious things – even sell your children.

    Wishing her the strength to raise these three children. She is a wonderful lady & has no bad feelings about playing the role of a mom to these youngsters. God bless her.

    It’s unbelievable that even with this well known site,, you guys still can’t get your grammar correct. It would be “dealing with her son’s loss,” not dealibg with her son’s lost!!! SMDH

      I know right? Spellcheck underlines mistakes FOR THEM and still, they IGNORE the little red line! On all these sites, I read them but cringe in embarrassment from typos, sentence structure and grammatical errors. It’s like English is their 2nd language.

      I would GLADLY edit all the content if they paid me. HELLO????

    ..its so sad to see a WOMAN of 83 years old raising the next generation of Jacksons’ that aren’t even hers or Joe’s bloodline( y’all can say what you want to say about that, MJ’s kids are WHITE with no Jackson bloodline and JOE will attest to that)..anyway her beloved Michael put her into this situation and maybe she has accepted this ..but its sad and she’s NOT happy at this age, she’s probably learned that her beloved Michael kept a lot of trues from her..revealed after his death.

    So where are the other grown ass children of Joe and Katherine in all this? Why aren’t they helping this situation? Becuz they can’t be trusted and Michael knew this as well..and poppa joe Jackson is living in Vegas chasing young girls-lying to them offering a record contract- hoping to get some va-jay-jay(he’s divorced from Katherine long ago..reason being he fathered a female child during the height the Jackson family career..this is why Michael hated his father so..becuz what he did to Katherine in the marriage and Joe was the hardest on MJ that the other children of his, but MJ was smarter than his father and Joe knew this early on of all his children..MJ was more like Joe in many aspects and the only Child with Joe’s name as well(Michael Joseph Jackson)..
