Jermaine Jackson wants to change his name to something a little sunnier…Jermaine has filed a request to legally change his last name, swapping out “Jackson” for “Jacksun.”  According to TMZ, the older brother of Michael Jackson filed a name change petition on Tuesday in Los Angeles, stating the switch was for “artistic reasons.”

The filing doesn’t elaborate why Jermaine is switching out names, but Jackson’s friend Steve Dennis, who was speaking on the singer’s behalf, said it’s not unheard of for artists to change their names. “Phonetically, it changes nothing,” he said.

Oh okay…. Sounds like someone is bored.
