As I told you yesterday, Michael Jackson’s kids paid tribute to their father last night at the Grammys with a speech and then accepted his lifetime achievement award. Unfortunately, young Blanket became overwhelmed moments before he was supposed to go on stage, and he hung back while Prince Michael and Paris went out to accept the award.
There’s nothing to snark about here. Say whatever you will about Michael Jackson, those little munchkins up there were his kids. They’re children. And they are also incredibly brave. To stand in front of a room full of celebrities after living a fairly guarded life and losing everything you’ve ever known in one under a year… that’s quite courageous. Also, it was comforting. By all accounts these kids seem normal, smart, well-spoken and interesting. Paris Jackson is gorgeous. These seem like loved, well taken care of kids and I hope that they’re doing OK.
