La Toya Jackson, sister of the late King of Pop Michael Jackson, has been in the news a lot lately. When not filming her reality TV show, Life with La Toya, she’s been meeting with the media, talking about everything from her recent engagement to TV producer Jeffre Phillips to her return to music (she has a single out now called “Feels Like Love”) to speculating about a biopic of her late brother Michael.
She told HipHollywood that she thought singer/choreographer Bruno Mars would make for a good Michael Jackson, but noted his height wasn’t quite right (Mars is only 5’5”, where as Michael Jackson was a towering 5’9”). She also liked the idea of Chris Brown but as she pointed out, he’d have to lose a lot of weight, especially with the pounds he’s put on since being released from prison. According to La Toya, Michael weighed about 115 to 120 lbs. Brown is 160 if not 170, and btw stands tall at 6’1”. Mars is looking better and better for the part.
