JAMIE Jackson made headlines last year after a video clip of him being slammed to the ground by a police officer just after the 2013 Sydney Mardi Gras parade went viral.

Recently, the charges against were dropped, and now Jackson is entering the music world with his first single  I’ve Decided That I’m Great to be released in the next few days.

The Star Observer was given an auto-tuned 30-second clip of the song by Jackson’s manager James Brechney, the founder of the DIY Rainbow movement.

Brechney described Jackson’s transition from court room to music world as: “I think Australians wanted to hear music singles from the likes of Clare Werbeloff and Corey Worthington but they never happened.

“When I chatted to Jamie about his future I was thrilled he was keen to have a go at making a musical positive out of his negative experience.”

The Star Observer also spoke with Jackson about becoming a recoding artist.

“I love music but I have never considered becoming a recording artist,” he said.

“To me it’s just an artwork for me to look back on this part of my life and to allow others who have gone through a similar life experience to relate to it.”

When asked of how he felt the public’s reaction to his single could be, he responded: “I think people will like it but I think more people will hate it but I just don’t care”.

Jackson will be joining the DIY Rainbow float at this year’s Mardi Gras parade, and at the time of publishing it was not yet confirmed how close he would be to the NSW Police float.
