TJ Jackson has been named co-guardian of Michael Jackson's three children, CBS reports. The nephew of the pop icon will share duties with Michael's mother, Katherine.

Earlier this month, Katherine Jackson regained co-guardianship of Paris, Prince and Blanket Jackson after TJ was named temporary guardian. The co-guardianship ruling had been temporary but is now finalized. TJ is the son of Tito Jackson.

Last month, Katherine Jackson was reported missing after Paris, Prince and Blanket were unable to reach her for over a week, leading to a family disagreement over the custody of the children and Katherine's whereabouts.

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
