While up in Canada I made friends with tons of Twilight fans but the best and most informative were the paparazzi. They were willing to tell us anything that would help a fan on vacation get a glimpse of their favorite star. And for that I will be forever grateful to my friend John. Thanks John.
John was lucky enough to get a one on one interview with Jackson outside of the show at the Backstage Lounge. Jackson was so cool just hanging with the paps talking up a storm.
having lots of fun with the cast?
"Lots of work but do everything in moderation."
Liked your mohawk...how long to do that?
"After we are done filming the hair and makeup people and I like to play and have fun. I actually did the crew and new moon introductions with the mohawk."
What Jackson thinks of Greenland where he just shot film?
"It's cold but the whole country looks like Häagen-Dazs cookies and cream ice cream. You had a spoon you could just dip it in."
Where is he heading next?
"Pennsylvania for shooting his next film"
Any tours coming up?
"What we are trying to is hit the west coast and then hit the east coast. West coast will be beautiful. A mini tour of Texas. We like to give audience power and we tell the fans we want to play and then they help us."
Jackson do you ever wear the banana suit?
"Look for our music videos but we aren't computer savvy so we are waiting for our website. We have a music video for the song "Slow Down" from Monster Delux and that will be on our website."
Music or Movies if you had to choose tomorrow?
I am going to have my cake and eat it too and I don't even like cake."

His manager also talks about the struggles of finding the band gigs still, even with the newfound fame of Jackson.
