1) In four months the site will be celebrating the 3rd Year Anniversary, what does it mean for you? I have to say that it is an incredible feeling and I hope the Jackson family feel the LOVE and support coming from the site and that Michael is smiling down at seeing his fans come together to remember him and support the Jackson family in such special ways. 2) Speaking of supporting the Jackson family, you have come up with an amazing idea, to show support for them as they head into this next court case. Can you tell fans who may not know a little more about it?
Thank you, you are really kind. I wanted to show the Jackson family support from WeLove 3T and I asked members and friends starting Aug 29, Michael Jackson’s birthday to light a candle in their windows, to place an orange and yellow ribbon outside of their homes, and on the first court day (set for Sept 26,2011) to wear the color yellow to show support for the Jackson family. We also have an icon (done by one of our members Trisha) that members, friends, and supporters can post on their Twitter or Facebook pages to show support.
3) What are your feelings about the upcoming court case?
I just hope that the truth comes out and that what people think they know based off of the media’s ideas of what took place will open individual’s eyes to seeing things differently. I do not believe Michael Jackson was this terrible, struggling, individual who saw no way out like the media wants to make him out to be and I hope that everyone who is responsible for him going too soon will have to answer for what they have done.
4) So, do you believe more than one person was involved, what about Dr. Murray do you blame him for Michael’s death?
I don’t believe that everyone that surrounded Michael during that time was truly there for the right reasons. I am not sure about Dr. Murray but, I do believe the truth will come to the light and I hope the Jackson family is given peace because of it. 5) What are your thoughts on Jermaine, Randy, and Janet not supporting the tribute for Michael in Wales?
I feel that Ms. Janet explained it the best and I feel they have the right to their thoughts and feelings. It is just not the right time for them and you know what, that is okay. The other family members are ready and that is okay. A lot of what the Jackson family has had to say in the past has been taken out of context and I feel this time is no different. 6) There are individuals who have gone on Facebook and Twitter and attacked several Jackson family members including Jermaine Jackson and Taj Jackson and say that they are fans of Michael Jackson, what are your thoughts?
To say that they are Michael Jackson fans and attack Michael Jackson’s family makes no sense to me. To say that the Jackson family just wants to make money off of him, tells me that they know nothing about the Jackson family at all. I think it is sad and misleading to certain individuals who are just looking to support and find themselves being attacked by those who say that they are the “true” Michael Jackson fans.
To attack the Jackson family is wrong; no matter how many times the media wants to bring up a misunderstanding or disagreement. Every family has been faced with those problems but, the Jackson family is Michael Jackson’s family and there is nothing anyone can try to do or say to change that. 7) What did you think when you heard the news saying that Jermaine Jackson had a plane set up ready to go and was planning on flying Michael out of the country if he had been charged in the 2003 court case?
My first thought was oh, no here we go again. This is just something else for the media to have a field day. Then I saw Mr. Jermaine Jackson on the interview as they were talking about it and I looked him in the eyes and understood that the Jackson family including Mr. Jermaine Jackson knew Michael had not done these things and wanted to do any and everything to protect his brother, even putting his own life on the line. Would he have gone through with the plan, is neither here nor there but, I think for those who question their love for Michael, Mr. Jermaine Jackson in his own way tried to clear up any disbelief that the Jackson family, did not believe in Michael and that they did not love Michael. Being willing to put your own life on the line for someone else says a lot.
8) The Jackson family has millions and millions of fans. Your site has opened doors to allowing fans to send in artwork, poetry, and given them an outlet to express themselves as fans of the Jackson family. Even allowing their work to be given to the Jackson family. Do you find it hard at times dealing with the fans who struggle with understanding that even though their artwork and poetry are being shown or given to the Jackson family that they are not the only fan or fans the Jackson family have?
Yes, it is very hard at times because once you open the door to allowing some individuals to share their work, they want to continue and give more and more and more and they do not understand sometimes less is more. The Jackson family does have millions and millions of fans but, when you have each fan come together willing to allow others to shine, not just themselves, then you see the love that begins to grow. 9) Do you agree with Piers Morgan’s line of questioning for Jermaine Jackson on Piers Morgan Tonight Show?
I do not agree with Piers Morgan when he said, that Michael asked to be called names that he did things for people to make fun of him. No one should be made fun of in any kind of way. Lately, you have seen on television where individuals have come on and asked teens and young adults to put an end to bullying but, last night to say that Michael brought people showing hatred towards his fault, I do not agree with. I also would like to restate what Mr. Jermaine Jackson said, about Michael sharing his bed. Mr. Jermaine Jackson said, that Michael would give the children his bed and he would sleep on the floor and the court case in 2003 cleared up the fact that Michael Jackson had done nothing wrong in the first place.
I do not feel that Mr. Jermaine Jackson or any other Jackson family member should have to keep retelling the same story over and over again. Michael Jackson was found innocence of all charges and therefore there should be no more questions about it. In a court of law there is such a thing as double jeopardy so I don't understand why Michael still on trial for a crime he never committed.
10) Since the site began back in January of 2009 and officially launched in January 2010, have you received a lot messages from fans that may have brought into the negative thoughts about the Jackson family, say that they have change their minds because of your site? How does it make you feel to see the change come about?
I have had many fans come and say that because of the site that they find it refreshing to read positive news about the Jackson family and in many cases they have grown to appreciate them even more. I have even had some to go as far to say that I make them more down to earth. It makes me happy to know that my site plays a part in changing negative into positive and that through We Love 3Tfans feel that they have a place to go that they feel proud of to display their work and express themselves.
Amber Speaks about We Love 3T
“Never Thought I Would Be Here”, The Exclusive Interview with Amber: Fans Questions Answered...
Your website We Love 3T: Dedicated to 3T and the Jackson family is celebrating the 2nd Anniversary for the We Love 3T: Michael Jackson Day on June 25, 2011, what does that mean to you? It means so much, I remember being a little girl and loving Michael Jackson and the Jackson family. I never thought the website would take off like it has and receiving so much support and love. It is truly overwhelming and at times it brings tears to my eyes.
You have had to deal with people in the past saying that We Love 3T came around after Michael died and that it is just here for show, how do you handle that? I believe that when you do anything from the heart it shows. I just didn't become a Michael Jackson fan in 2009 and I just didn't start loving the Jackson family. I knew that when we decided to launch the site there may be criticism but, I launched the site when I was emotionally ready to and I truly do what I do from the heart.
What is your favorite 3T song and what made you become a fan? My favorite 3T song is "Anything", I remember when they came out how much I was just hooked on their music. I enjoyed hearing their songs and watching their interviews. They are down to earth and I think for any fan, it makes a difference that even though they are from the most famous family in American, they can still give you a hug, answer questions or sign an autograph.
Yashi Brown, who is Rebbie Jackson Brown's daughter the eldest of the Jackson family is going to be your main feature for We Love 3T: Michael Jackson Day, what does it mean to you, to have her as a part of the celebration? For me it is a blessing and I am so thankful that she is willing to come on board for me and the fans and I encourage the fans to check out our Yashi Brown's page. Read her bio and check out links for her Official Website, Facebook and Twitter.
How do you remember Michael Jackson and as a fan how do you plan to keep his memory alive? Michael Jackson for me was one of my heroes; he had this amazing heart and a willingness to give everything he had just to see someone smile. Smooth Criminal was one of my favorite videos because when I was little I didn't like doctor visits or the hospitals because I dislike shots or needles and in Smooth Criminal I remember Michael defeating the bad guy with the needle and for me there will never be another Michael Jackson.
I hope that my website will grow and continue on for many years and be something that I can pass down from one generation to the next and that through my site fans will get a true feel of who Michael Jackson was and what he meant to others. I think it is really important for the past to be remembered and I hope Michael will continue to be remembered as a one-of-a kind artist and amazing humanitarian.
You also have this amazing project called Fan Hearts United, can you tell us a little more and how it came about? Fans Hearts United was started because God laid it on my heart to start a mission in a way and reach out to fellow Jackson family fans and just to uplift and support each other. We do giant cards that we send out and we try to design the cards to meet the different personalities of each individual and express support and love based off whatever that person may be going through at the time. It is kind of like a support system in a card, hint We Love 3T/ Fans Hearts United, it is building love.
You, Taj Jackson, and T-Rio all have dots in the Michael Jackson Tribute Portrait in the area of his heart, what does that mean to you? It means a great deal and I am honored to be with Taj and T-Rio who I consider friends and to be listed along with other Jackson family members and friends. I never thought I would be there and be honored in such a way, it is truly amazing.
You have a website in support for the Jackson family, how do you make sure that you are not involving in gossip or heresy information but, reporting the truth? Sometimes it is really difficult because the bad press doesn't always show up as something negative and you can find yourself being totally confused but, you have to take things sometimes with a grain of salt and just correct any mistake you make. I would like to think that they (the Jackson family) know the site is being done out of love and support and if something is reported wrong it was never meant to hurt them. Everyone makes mistakes and it is what you do afterwards that makes the difference.
What would your advice be to someone who wanted to do a fan site but, was not sure how to do one? Do your homework, sometimes just learning a few facts about the person can really help you create a fun and supportive site you and others can be proud of. Don't be afraid to give other people credit for the work that they do and reach out and network. You never know, you may just hear from that person or group you are supporting. Also, don't allow anyone to push you around and make sure to respect the people you work with and support.
Exclusive Interview with Amber the Owner of We Love 3T: Top Ten Questions Fans Want to Know?
Why We Love 3T? Why now? I have always been a fan of the Jackson Family and I wanted to do something special and different to show love. No, I didn't start a website years back but, it didn't mean that I didn't care and the website does come from the heart and I hope the Jackson family and fans will understand that. Not everyone can do a website and that is okay, it takes a lot of time and effort and after reading an interview and hearing 3T felt no love here in the U.S., it really hurt me and I wanted the family to know that we do love them here in the U.S. especially 3T.
What was the idea behind creating the layout of the website? Fans that have been following We Love 3T have more than likely seen some changes here and there. Everything the Jackson family has done and continues to do is out of this world, amazing, they really know how to put on a show and I wanted something just as creative and special to represent them.
You have had a lot of fans to visit your website and it has only been up since January, what would you say is your secret? I just try to stay current and make sure that I give my very best that I can do. I also try really hard to stay with the facts.
Are you happy with the website and what would you say is the best part? Yes, I am very happy with my website. The best part is all of the love and support here and there. I would also have to say meeting new people and making new friends.
Some have questioned if you and Jackson Source have teamed up, is that true or false? No, I joined Jackson Source as a member but, I am the owner of We Love 3T and Janneke is the owner of Jackson Source. They are two totally different websites, owned by two totally different people. It means a lot that fans would think so but, Jackson Source has been around a lot longer than We Love 3T.
Janneke has been on We Love 3T and answered questions for fans right? Yes. You can see the questions from the fans and Janneke’s answers under Members Chat.
Have you done anymore interviews other than Janneke? Yes. Jana from 3T Fans United join us as a chat and so many fans log on that we had to end early and I ended up sending her questions from the fans. So she was the very first interview that was done on We Love 3T.
There is a News Letter that Fans can print out from We Love 3T right? Is the News Letter free and what can Fans expect when they see the News Letter? Yes. The News Letter is free and the Fans can see it and print it out under News Letter. The News Letter has updates about information that has been going on with and different events happening for the Jackson Family.
Tell us more about Celebrating Michael? Celebrating Michael is a project that I came up with to remember Michael Jackson. All over the world fans are celebrating the life and legacy of one of the greatest entertainers that this world was blessed to know. I felt that We Love 3T should be involved with remembering Michael as well. Fans can send a heartfelt message now to the Jackson Family that will be placed on a poster and sent to the Jackson Family once it is completed. The messages that Fans send will be placed inside of colorful hearts and We Love 3T members names will be one of three hearts circling the Jackson Family and Michael’s name. We welcome anyone and everyone that would like to participate in this. Also, we are asking for fans to send in artwork and pictures of fans celebrating Michael.
What can Fans look forward to coming up on your website? Fans can look forward to more news and photo updates. I hope to do more interviews in the near future with special guest on the site and I also hope to do more projects. Fans can also look forward to more Trivia Questions and more Did You Knows. There will be lots more but, I can’t share it all and I plan to keep things going and have a good time meeting new people and making new friends.
How can Fans join We Love 3T? Fans can join We Love 3T by e-mailing us through the Contact Form and letting us know that they would like to be a member.

Dear Amber, Do you think that the Jackson brothers will do a Second Season of The Jacksons: A Family Dynasty?- Ranadia
Amber: Ranadia, I am not sure about that question, it took a lot for them to do the first one after Michael passed away. They may or may not, we will just have to wait and see.
Dear Amber, I am a fan of the Jackson Family and I enjoyed 3T's music when they came out in the U.S. but, I read in an article that, they would rather take their music overseas than be here in the U.S. I really hope that your site will let them know that they do I have fans in the U.S. that miss them and would like to see them come back.-Renee
Amber: Thank You, I hope that you are right; I really miss their music too and hope that they will think about coming back and I hope they know that they do have fans in the U.S. that cares.
Dear Amber, I love your website, it shows that you really care about 3T and the Jackson Family, do you know if 3T has received the card that you sent them yet?- Helena

Dear Amber, What was Jackie Jackson's son Siggy Jackson's stage name and is he the only besides 3T of the Next Generation to do music? -Amy
Amber: Siggy Jackson is better known as Dealz here in the U.S. There are other Next Generation Jacksons to have come out as well, Marlon Jackson Jr. is known as Chye Beats, Austin Brown and his sisters Stacee and Yashi Brown, Rebbie Jackson’s children have come out and performed music, Genevieve Jackson, Randy Jackson's daughter performs music and I believe she will be one of the performers for The International Fanvention coming this August.

Dear Amber, Can you tell me more about Marlon Jackson's project over in Africa?- Raven
Amber: Mr. Marlon Jackson is working to develop a slavery memorial and luxury resort in Badagry, Nigeria. It is to have a combination of a slave history theme park and museum. The idea is to help bring African American tourists to trace their roots back to Nigeria and to honour the history of the Transatlantic Slave Trade.
Dear Amber, There has been talk in the news that the Jackson brothers are thinking about coming together and performing. Do you think Janet should take Michael's place or do you think it should be just the brothers? - Alexis
Amber: I think that if the brothers are thinking about coming back together it is all any fan could ask for. I believe that if Janet joins the brothers that should be up to her but, no one can replace Michael and I don't think Janet should have that type of pressure to have to. They have lost a brother, not just a member of the band and coming back together is going to be hard on them no matter what.
Dear Amber, I love the way that you remembered 3T's Mom. I am sure the card that you sent to them ment a lot to them and I just love, this website. Keep up the good work!!- Melissa
Amber: Thank you Melissa, I am glad you like the website and I try and I know how hard it is to lose a parent.
