Popular R&B boy band 3T stopped by Pure People HQ for an interview in Levallois Perret, near Paris. Afterwards, the group stopped to greet fans and sign autographs outside the studio.

3T features the three sons of original Jackson 5 member Tito Jackson, 64, and his late wife Delores "Dee Dee" Jackson. In 1996, 3T ranked second to the Spice Girls as the biggest-selling group in Europe.

The band members include, from L-R, Tito Joe Jackson, aka T.J., 39, Toriano Adaryll Jackson, Jr., aka Taj, 44, and Taryll Adren Jackson, 42. The group is best known for their hit single "Anything", featuring their uncle Michael Jackson on background vocals, and "Why?", a duet with Micheal.

Taj Jackson later revealed he was molested by an uncle on his mother's side when he was a boy. He sought therapy to resolve his inner feelings of guilt and shame.

After Michael's tragic death in 2009, T.J. was named co-guardian (with Katherine Jackson) of Michael's 3 children, Paris, Prince and Bigi. Only the youngest, Bigi, remains in T.J.'s care.

    Lots of tea in this post sandy... too much to tackle this lunch break but I got it ??

  • Dove Amerie

    I'm sure all 3 were molested by family and never a Jackson right. Because all the Jackson kids are healthy and normal. They look like foster kids who had a horrible life.

  • MsPam

    Taj looks like he lost some weight! The middle one need to get rid of those braids.

    Auntie popular where?

  • Ni Ni

    It's good they are still working. I used to love those two songs that were popular. I just hated all that makeup they had on in the video.

  • stav

    Popular? Where? Name one song ....waiting!!!

  • stav

    Get rid of the braids and the band as a whole, I can't name one song.

  • Ni Ni

    What a minute, those aren't the songs i remember. Thought one was, I'll do anything or I'll give you love or something like that.

  • Phillybruh

    Who paid for this write up...lol I can't lie I was just listening to why the other night...lol

  • Miss Thang

    I only know "Why?" and that's ONLY because I'm a huge MJ fan.

  • Phillybruh

    Foster kids who look just like the family they are placed with...lol Some of yall need help.

  • Misslaydj

    Loved TJ

  • Phillybruh

    They had a nice little run until Mikes legal problems and his acts on his label got caught up in it. Brownstone never recovered.

  • MoniquetheGeek

    Brownstone!! I used to love them.

  • SweetTEE

    They were never a band. This is all made up lol

  • Nikkiknows

    No, Auntie, you were supposed to post this one! This was my jam!

  • SumthinSweeter

    we are in the same age range slightly and I have never ever ever heard of their group?! their facial features are so weird though. like they are mixed with sphinx and cat. but maybe I heard a song here or there and thought it was something MJ was singing but wasn't.

  • stav

    I've seen them maybe 20 years ago, but I couldn't name one song, and I never knew they were popular. Sandra said popular like they are still making music today, yet again I never knew they were popular.

  • Thingamajig

    The arch in their eyebrows says it all.

  • MoniquetheGeek

    I remember 3T but do not remember their songs lol. One of them was on Iyanla last season trying to fix his life.

  • Dove Amerie

    I thought they were on Janet's label. Mjj or Mike and Janet's label.

  • SumthinSweeter

    I'm confused by that too but it's fan's on this here post that remember.

  • Ni Ni

    Yep, this it!

  • stav

    I guess!

  • Phillybruh

    They were on Mikes, he signed all the siblings except for Janet and they couldn't get out of it until he died.

  • Dove Amerie

    Help me out. Why they look like that? Trying to follow in Uncle's bleached out shadow?

  • SumthinSweeter

    ok, now I do remember that. he was a mess of course.

  • Dove Amerie

    Ohhh ok. So that's why those were crocodile tears at the funeral. Interesting.

  • Chocolate Bliss

    These were some weird looking boys back then and now. I could never get into their music because they looked like aliens. Whyyyyyyy do they have their eyebrows arched like drag queens? Taj looks like he's always been soft as a Kleenex.

  • Roxie Moxie

    LMAO @ "dad bods". hahahahahaha

  • Drea982

    Those micro braids are not the bidness. That is a MANband LOL. But I loved them back in the day. I LOVED me some TJ. Eyebrows arched for the gawds honey! YAS!

  • Roxie Moxie

    Taj's hair reminds me of the hairstyle that Shemar Moore wore in the movie Diary of a Mad Black Woman (the fake cornrows). It looks like it's sitting RIGHT on top of his head.

  • SumthinSweeter

    the FIRST lace front corn roll wig. that thang looked horrible thought didn't it?

  • Andrea Williams

    Aren't they a little too old at 39,42 and 44 to be considered a "boy band"?

  • SumthinSweeter

  • Logan Roberts

    Definition of bad bitches.

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    I've sort of followed them. They're overseas being big stars because they can't get traction here in the States and MJ promised them he would make them stars and he didn't.

  • Roxie Moxie

    YOU ARE DONE!!! *time out starts now*

    Haaaaaaaa.... If I don't stop coming across your post and giggling at my desk I will never get back to doing what I'm supposed to be doing!

  • Dove Amerie

    Could this have been the uncle? He only was known to sleep with little boys and pay off accusers millions at a time.

    If TJ embraced his Blackman genes, we could see how fine he really is. He's right next to Jackie on the Jackson fine-o-meter!

    3 who?

  • ShWa

    LOL

  • Dove Amerie

    Peter Pan syndrome

  • JayBird

    He still got them tired dreads/braids and I always thought they looked faked to me. This is what the original Jacksons wanted to look like. Yikes!

  • Kayke

    Adaryll.... I read Adderall lol

  • Ryan

    I barely remember them, hadn't heard their name in years.

  • i troll it like i see it

    Really Taj? Still with the ridiculous micro braids? None of great Jackson men are really known for their style so I guess this isn't a shocker. TJ's brows are arched for the gods, Taryll is the only one looking like he's into chicks and not d*cks.

  • i troll it like i see it

    I'm usually not like this, but could this pic get any more gay? I don't think its humanely possible.

  • i troll it like i see it

    LOL.

  • i troll it like i see it

    Anything goes in Europe. David Hasselhof was a huge recording artist for years.

  • CaramelDrop

    Never heard of them.
    What do I know, though!???????
    My hoodass was somewhere listening to Tupac, The Fugees, OutKast, Suave House, Rap-A-Lot, and No Limit artist. Soon as some shit like this came on The Box, I hurry up and turned the channel?

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    They used to be the sh!tz back in the day

  • kennedy220

    you are right about that...outside of America not only are they interested in the artist but also they other artist that played any live instruments on the album

  • dontgetblocked

    Why Michael? Why? Even the nephews??

  • dontgetblocked

    These three boys...men are a bunch of losers who are broker than the average Joe. I watched the train wreck of a reality show. They all married white women.

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    I still have my one CD of theirs with their uncle on it.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    How can you have that type following in Europe and just walk away from it? I'm not a fan, so I can't be completely sure they walked away, but I don't recall any new music or press about steady tour dates. Anyone?

  • Dahl

    I remember them, I liked their song Tease Me. I also watched a couple episodes of their show. Felt bad for the middle brother, the baby brother always fat shamed him...

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    It was comical seeing his wife. She thought being married to a Jackson came with access, excess, privilege. Ma'am, this is Mr. Johnson calling from Wal-Mart about the application you submitted.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    dead. My click bad.

  • ScreamQueen

    I’m 33 and I LOVED 3T!!!! I had the album and they actually had some good songs on there. However, I could be a bit biased bc I also love MJ to the point where my 3 year old says she is going to marry him when she grows up. Lol

  • Bashi22

    They all plastic Katherine and Joe must did something in their pass, for their off-springs don’t like their original looks. They just running away from black looking

    Oh lawd ?????

  • leapyearpisces

    I have said it before on this VERY blog, and I will say it AGAIN, if TJ was not married, I would RISK it ALL to have him-not because I find him soooooooo fine or anything, but ANYONE who watched their show on VH-1, will understand and know EXACTLY why I say I would risk it all for him. Bottom line, I do not know who raised him and his brothers, but WHOEVER raised them-ESPECIALLY TJ, did a BANG-UP muthafugging JOB! THEY RAISED A BONAFIDE man!!!! This dude is sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo VERY, VERY MASCULINE believe it or not, because who would have EVER thought, right???), and yet so VERY gentle at the same time. Homeboy is an EXTRA, EXTRA, alpha male with just enough tenderness to be an attentive, loving father to his kids, and a loving husband to his wife. I SEE why she STAYS popping out babies, and though I envy her, I am NOT mad at her ONE BIT -LOLOLOLOL - she is a very lucky woman, and I can say unlike Taj''s bish azz wife , TJ''s wife really respects him because she know she lucked up and found a RARE JEWELZ of a man. If you don't believe me, go aND videos of their show. Katherine didn't make him co-guardian over Michael''s kids for nothing.

  • mona q

    UGH...I was just thinking that. If he wanted an updated version of this hairstyle, he could just get locs up there. Those microbraids from the 90s are P.L.A.Y.E.D. and I'm all for being individual but this here ...nope.

  • mona q

    3T was more popular overseas than here. I like TJ the best. He is the best father and husband based on what I saw of some reality show they were on. They have been trying to get this group back together for some years now. Because on that show, they were fighting about the variables. TJ was really the only one in shape even then (a few years ago).

    The thing I found interesting was they are all so soft spoken like Janet and Michael. Also, I thought it was Taryll who said on Iyanla that he was molested by an uncle that was not Michael. ?

  • Guess Who

    They all funny looking.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Yes I still play this song to this day...

  • Trace da Ace

    damn is it me...or does it look like they ALL have had some type of plastic surgery on their faces??? Is that the "jackson look"??? I need to know...I remember when they came to my city in VA back in 1996-1997 for a concert....i was like who da fuk is these dudes?? Never thought they hit it big like that....
