Is anyone else completely horrified by the news that all three of Michael Jackson‘s kids, Prince, Paris and Blanket, are enrolled in after school acting classes? I mean, community theater is a perfectly acceptable activity for children, but all three of them are studying with a real acting teacher and reading books about “respecting the craft” and shit. Um, did the Jackson’s ever hear of soccer or Girl Scouts or something? Haven’t these kid’s lives been hectic enough without throwing the whole “child acting” thing into the mix?
Thankfully, Paris (who is freakin’ gorge, BTW) seems to be the only one of the three who’s really into the performance side of things. She’s been saying in interviews for quite some time that she wants to grow up to be an actress and that she and her father often improvised sketches around the house. According to Prince, he’d rather be behind the scenes working as a producer or director. Blanket? Well, God knows what he wants to do, but I’m guessing “changing his name to something other than Blanket” is on his shortlist.
Hey, Jackson family: How about pulling these munchkins out of the industry for a few minutes and letting them act like normal kids? Also, how about respecting Michael’s wishes not to have their faces plastered all over the place? You may recall that they had to wear masks in public for most of their lives, so why do you think he’d want them in front of the camera now? Yeesh.
