Happy Birthday, Paris Jackson

Happy Birthday, Paris Jackson

Michael Jackson helps his daughter Paris Jackson celebrate her 9th birthday in Las Vegas on Tuesday.

Michael, Paris, sons Prince and Michael II, and a slew of bodyguards started the day at FAO Schwarz Toy Store at the Forum Shops in Caesars Palace. The store closed for over an hour so the family could go on a shopping spree. Check out that mob scene!

Afterwards they headed to the Wynn Hotel for lunch at “Wing Lei” Chinese Restaurant followed by a walk through the Wynn Shops where Michael, 48, stopped by the Rolex store to look at watches.

After their busy day shopping, the Jackson family returned home, where a party was thrown for the birthday girl, including a visit from Charlie the Clown.

It was rumored last week that Michael is looking to perform at an extended run show like Celine Dion‘s in Las Vegas. He supposedly wants to build a 50-foot robot version of himself that will walk around the desert outside of the city and emit laser beams from its head. Zap, zap!

Inside are 25+ pictures of Paris‘ birthday celebration including Michael, Paris, Prince, and Michael II

    Because this “Circus” is his life, and has been for the past 40 years. They are a part of his life, and he wanted to go shopping with his daughter on her birthday. Michael refuses to stop living his life just because the media will barage him.

  • simply

    Michael also seems to be a person who tries to accomplish multiple things at one time. It was Paris’ birthday, so they went shopping. It was also recently reported that he was sick, this is also a message to those concerned that he is just fine.

    You say:
    fyi: genetically, it is possibly for two black people to have a white child (or child who looks white). it is genetically possible for a black person and a white person to have a child that looks physically white. genetically, two whites cannot have a black child (or physically looking black child). it has to do with the law of recessive genes vs dominant genes and how they cancel each other out.

    example: two dark skinned blacks can have a blonde haired blue eyed child but two blondes cannot have a dark skin dark haired child. the child may be white with dark hair but not dark (black) skin.

    who knows if the child is michael’s (probably not) given that michael is too narcissistic to have children of his own i bet.

    but the idea that the kids can’t be his because they “look white” is inaccurate.

    ******
    i can see that happening once, but not three times in a row.
    i agree with the rest of your post.

    ^^^^^^^^Mason #52: if someone wanted to really harm the children or mob them, don’t you think their identity could be exposed? all you have to do is follow them and see where the kids live and who they leave with and it would be easy to deduct who his kids are even if veils them when he is with them.

    so in terms of logistics, it is a stupid tactic. and it cannot be emotionally grounding for any kid to know that daddy time outside means veil time and means i see the world through a black veil all day. why, on any level, is that something that can be beneficial to a kid?

    michael is bizarre. jsut as he does not understand why a 40 year old man should not have sleepovers with 10 year olds, he can’t understand why the above treatment of his daughter is bizarre. he cannot understand it.

    because he is talented, rich and well known, we call it eccentric.

    if michael was the neighbor next door, we’d be alarmed. the rich and famous get excused for everything.

    RE: Team Lara Croft

    That idea is inaccurate. But it’s also not likely that all three of his children would come out that way as well. If you look at the entire Jackson family, they seriously all look like twins. From his brothers and sisters (pre surgery), to their offspring and neices and nephews. They all look alike in some way or another.

    Michael Jackson didn’t suddenly get the weak gene that didn’t dominate. My personal opinion on the matter is that he just wanted kids, no matter who’s. In comes Debbie Rowe, and he jumped at the chance.

    Lisa Marie Presley and her mother have both said time and time again that he was so desperate to jump into having children with her. Of course her mother believes it was because he wanted to have the offspring of someone from the Presley family…but Lisa Marie knows this isn’t true. The man just wanted kids and he was getting older, Lisa Marie at the time was still in her 20s so she didn’t have to rush anything. She didn’t want to have kids so soon (or at all, I don’t know), they split and then he moved on to his next option.

    Thanks so much for being the voice of reason.I really don`t understand why it`s so hard to understand for some people.It`s really easy actually, he does what HE thinks it`s best for HIS kids not what others want him to do.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    Yeah, supposedly, it usually happens on the 4th child. Or the 4th fertilization can bring forth a recessive “white gene” offspring for a black couple.

    Although, some black couples have had all their kids look “white”.

    But I agree, one of the children should have inherited Michael’s black genetic make-up. Especially given that black males are genetically dominant when mixed with another race. Again, genetics. So, I agree, something is possibly off there.

    What idea is inaccurate?

  • Victor

    er..RE: Team Lara Croft

    The covers on their faces, don’t only serve the purpose that you mentioned. I’m sure you’ve seen it here many times being said already…

    That he wants them to be able to have normal outings when he isn’t around? Of course they have slip ups sometimes. But they go out all the time with their nannies and no one pays them any attention at all. Most of the time the paparazzi don’t even notice their presence.

    Now look at some of the other kids in Hollywood? Apple Martin for example. (Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin’s child) How wrong is it that the paparazzi follow her around already? The girl isn’t even three years old yet. The entire world knows what she looks like. Of course, since she’s only three she hasn’t been affected by it.
    But, it won’t be as bad for her because her parents aren’t generally under any kind of suspicison.

    Michael Jackson’s kids? Imagine that he went out with all three of them, with their faces uncovered. The very next week or maybe day, they will be on the cover of all of those weekly an daily magazines. With the ‘specialists’ discussing why their body movements or facial expressions say to us that they are miserable and abused. Next, in comes the fake doctors discussing why those kids aren’t his at all..ect.

    That will all pass, but what won’t pass is the fact that everyone will know their faces and the paparazzi stalking them as a way to find their father.

    4, 9, and 10 year olds don’t deserve to be running from strange men snapping their pictures all the time. If that means having them wear a cloth over their faces when their father is with them in public…small sacrifice in the grand scheme of things.

    How many times in a year do we see them doing outings like this? You can count on one hand. The other 99% of the time, they aren’t walking around with their faces covered. It’s not abuse.

  • Victor

    I was agreeing with you that the idea that just because they look white doesn’t mean they are his is wrong. But just not three times in a row.

    Bear says:……

    Come on now Bear. You don’t really think folks would just follow Michael, like they are doing in picture #6 because he is, as per you, a freak show.

    Looking at him as he passes by is one thing, but FOLLOWING him is totally somthing else. The majority of those folks are probably on vacation, and you think they are just gonna take time out of their vacation schedule to follow somebody they don’t like. PLEASE! But if it makes you feel better to think that, it’s all good. LOL!

    I have nothing against Paris, Lindsay, Britney, but I ain’t following them if I see them out in public and I ain’t whipping out my cellphone to take their pictures either. I wish them well, but they don’t interest me like that. LOL! And I would think that most folks would have that reaction regarding folks they are not particularly interested in.

    Bottomline, if you don’t like somebody OR something, you USUALLY ignore that person or that thing.

    Paris, I hope you had an unforgettable birthday:)
    What’s up with the universe! People you are pathetic! I wonder, why there is so much anger gathered in you. Don’t insult anybody, if you have NO IDEA who they are. Your brains are washed. How on earth can you belive what tabloids say. They only aim to catch a sensation, with no rules and respect to human’s privacy and dignity. Michael is such a marvellous person, great-hearted, sympathetic, good-natured…..that opinion is not based on fanclub pages, but on years of thorough observation, books and interviews.
    IT’S YOU WHO HAVE ALMOST DISTROED HIM, BUT REMEMBER….HE IS INVINCIBLE
    so better shot up and keep vegatating in your silly, narrow-minded world
    Prey to God to forgive you….but to me, you are not worth it

  • Smark

    Picture #8 clearly shows that the girl took her mask off once they entered the closed toy store.

  • Annique

    The veils have nothing to do with child-abuse. When these kids are out with their father, people look at them. That’s why they wear those veils around him: so that the public eye won’t see them uncovered one day and think: that’s Michaels kids!! If that were to happen, they’d be hounded by paparazzi.

    It’s only a minimal sacrifice for the first, what, 14 years in their lives? After that they have all the freedom to be and be among NORMAL people with a normal status and not end up in an ivory cage like Michael. For the past 40 years he’s constantly been in the spotlights and he’s saving his kids from that same fate. He wants them to live the carefree life that he didn’t have. The children obviously don’t mind wearing the veils. It’s only when they are in public.

    A little reasoning goes a long way.

    And wether they are biologically his children or not; this man has been a loving father to them all their lives. And that weighs a lot more on the scale than blood relations. He’s their father and their his kids, that’ll always be the case. Wether he fathered them or not.

    These children enjoy a fulfilling childhood, a good education, the best that money can buy. And as a father he’s doing a wonderful job. He’s proud to be their father, it just beams off of him.

    The accusations against him in both 1993 and 2003 had tons of fallacies. It was a normal trial like all, but the unnescesary and outrageous media freak circus that it was turned in, made it appear so different. It wasn’t the trial that was different. It was the hysteria around it that made it LOOK different. But this woman that accused him, they were out for nothing but money. It’s been a witch-hunt over a decade long. Justice was served, and he was vindicated on ALL counts.

    And any surgeries or skin bleaching or whatever is his own business. If he’s not satisfied with his looks, then he’s free to change them like any other responsible individual. It is true that he suffers from Vitiligo. But it doesn’t typically whiten the entire skin in a short time. Perhaps he bleached the rest to even it out? Imagine the layers of goop that he had to smear on to retain his original looks! Certainly back in the day, when cosmetics weren’t as innovative and comfortable as they are now. I am open to anything. It’s his life, nobody has anything to say about it.

  • Victor

    Why do you fans always have to say shit like that. YOU ALMOST DESTROYED HIM!!

    No, Michael almost destroyed himself, thanks. I have a sympathetic heart and I do feel for him because the events that he’s gone through since childhood have surely made him turn out not quite right. But that doesn’t exempt him from personal responsibility.

  • Victor

    Re: Annique

    Good post. All very true.

    Michael went through depigmentation therapy btw. Sped the process along.

    Check out photos of him during 1984. On tour, he had so much make up on his skin that it was smeared all over his costumes. Can’t do that all your life.

    Besides, if he did bleach his skin just for the reason of not liking the color…he wouldn’t have done it to such an extreme. The man has no pigment, he would have at least stopped once he reached a normal ‘caucasian’ skin tone.

    I dont get all the HATERZ here. If you dont like Michael Jackson or the things he does, WHY ARE YOU EVEN HERE SPENDNING YOUR ****ING TIME POSTING NEGATIVE COMMENTS, that wont even matter!!! Just simply go away, cause your just wasting your ****ing time. Fuck the press, Michael is the best!!

    For all the white racist jealous haters who doubt their his biological kids, Y’all need to shut the heck up and be thankful a wealthy BLACK man is treating these so-called white kids so well. A white man would never be so kind to a black child and you know it. Yeah they adopt black kids and treat them as less than just like Angelina is going to treat Shiloh waaay much better than the little black girl she took from africa.

  • brooklyn

    Cassie, you are so right about the haters.

  • Armand S.

    To “Christy”: You are so full of prejudice i bet u are from the US, right?… the TV and the “Press” are so good leaving a wrong opinion on your weak mind.
    Since your first comment you call MJ a “FREAK” and tried to leave your intelligent opinion above all the other users here without any respect… If you give your opinion respecting and not offending the others and even MJ because, believe it or not, IF u where famous and rich you would be judged by MILLIONS of people in the world without cannot doing anything to convince them (if they had a wrong opinion on U)That what they said about yourself is not truth… And is it hard to understand the media as a big power for telling lies when they want?… is it hard to believe it?…. i bet it is hard for people like you with a special intelligence, but i bet is very EASY for you to BELIEVE what u read and see on the TV news, right?
    Michael Jackson has been the most humilliated and treated down like Sh*t celebrity in the world.
    Even when he was not guilty on all the charges, in your small brain he will be guilty because is skin color is not the same and because he’s different.
    But the Kharma Exists dear “Christy”. Keep judging. go ahead..

  • AmyWinehouseISTHEBOMB

    I will NEVER get how other celeb parents catch hell about what people may think is not happening behind closed doors, but hardly says anything about what IS seen, and in this instance, Michael STRANGE AS HELL Jackson and his veiled children. If this was a certain person I will not name doing this, there would be so much crying for the babies to be taken away it would not be funny.

    Take them away?? And give them to who?? Access Hollywood? or The great parental figures at the National Enquirer? You people are Pure EVIL and SICK as Hell!!

    Leave Michael and his children alone!!! He’s an excellent father and his children LOVE him. YOu people should take a lesson from them and learn about love not hate.

  • showtime

    Look at the couple in picture #15, they appear to be very happy to see Michael. That is too cute!

    The pure electricity of Michael Jackson’s star power is undeniable!

  • Anne

    Nobody can say that they know Jackson personally at this point…neither journalists or fans. Entourage doesn’t count, they are paid to be there. Jackson has such a tightly controlled circle around him that there is no need to force anybody to say or do something which is outside of his control. Situations just don’t happen as they would in a normal life with children.

    Now and then, other celebs talk about what their children do or say or what school they go to, but with Jackson? Never. Leaving everybody in the dark seems to be Jackson’s strategy right now to evade uncomfortable questions. Be it the children’s descent or otherwise.

    BTW, if Jackson chooses to go shopping in the midst of a busy shopping mall with lots of tourists and has his entourage close a shop just for him and the kids, of course that causes situations like those in the photographs. And I bet, the paparazzi working for just-jared.com and also tmz.com have been tipped off by camp Jackson to be at the mall. That is Paris Hilton for you!

    Back in the 80s, Michael Jackson was one of the first celebs to ever gain publicity like that, tipping press off to this and that thus staying relevant (whatever that means). Since then, this kind of publicity has just gone through the roof!

  • showtime

    The media follows Michael Jackson like a dog in heat! At this point, I don’t think he has to tip them off. In my opinion, the media is OBSESSED with Michael. LOL!

    He went to Japan to attend “fan” parties and the media covered it for three (3) days, like it was a presidential inauguration.

    Michael Jackson is NOT the ideal parent.

    He is a man who has been through the court system, not once, but THREE times (that we know of) for suspected child sexual abuse.

    I don’t care how innocent he may be but if I know any over 40 year old man who has been taken to court for several child abuse cases, I would not want him NEAR a child.

    There are lots of very famous people like Michael who have not had this issue brought against them.

    Look at Prince – his contemporary – you don’t see parents of 10 year olds taking Prince to court for suspected child abuse.

    This has nothing to do with Michael’s wealth – there is something in his behavior and the way he lives his live that warrants such cases.

    Again, Prince is not being sued like Michael and Prince is just as famous, just as rich!

    As for Michael and the black issue: the poster above who mentioned something about Michael being a black man who will treat these kids ….blah blah blah….what???????

    When was the last time Michael Jackson was so connected to the black community???? I know when – when he was facing child molestation charges and all of a sudden, he aligns himself with the Nation of Islam – before that Michael has left the black community a long time ago. Please!

  • skincolor

    As far as SKIN COLOR. Would MICHAEL been able to CONTINUE his role as a superstar with LARGE Splotches on his skin from vitiligo. America is so racial and full of hate, that his mere prescense upsets many. Would people really have followed him if he looked like this—-> http://www.patient.co.uk/showdoc/40001004/

    Michael did what he could to retain his image and what he felt was best for him at the time. . He couldnt have continued with all the heavy makeup, that was constantly wipping off. If Michael had shown up with large white patches all over him, his career may very well have been ended.

    He was diagnosed with lupus and vitiligo, he was severly, severly burned, he was tried in a case that was clearly extortion, and he’s been hounded, tormented and picked at by the media for years. Im sure, he cant even get through a day of television without some type of joke or reference to him. Yet, he continues living his life, taking care of his children, and producing the beautiful music that is his genius.

    Michael Jackson is a legend, a genius, and a true humanitarian. If more people had 1/10th of his character, we could truly “Heal the World”..too many people in America have been subject to the propoganda that is the media..and lazily, allow other people to make up their minds, instead of digging for facts for themselves!

  • skincolor

    Arguring with haters who havent looked up information for themselves is pointless you guys. Michael Jackson was witchunted in this country. He is not a promiscuous man, so there were no hoes that he could have “raped”, he didnt have lots of drugs in his home. The only thing he tried to do was to give children an escape from their sad lives and be too open. Too many people instead of helping others, would rather make a joke of those who truly try to give.

    Prince, is a talented musician, but he did not get to the level of Michael Jackson. Michael Jackson is now in the leagues of Elvis and the Beattles. A feat that was deemed impossible for a Black Man. MJ has donated to AIDS in africa. BEFORE you speak about him LEAVING the Black Community. KNOW your Facts…

    MJ Speech http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IQnW9twDb9U

    I am SICK of Black People( Im also Black) complaining that Michael isnt connected to the community. He branched out, something that other Black Stars didnt do. He tried DIFFERENT types of Music, rock, pop, soul, hip-hop. etc. He just didnt keep singing R and B and that is one thing that makes him great….

  • Anne

    Well, just now, Michael Jackson just produces headlines without making music or giving to charity and believing that just because his camp has put out King of Pop propaganda crap for years now, the public has to believe it.

    No indenpendent source has ever published Jackson having lupus BTW. The Vitiligo diagnosis is shaky as well. Dr. Allen Klein was Debbie Rowes boss, so no independent source there either.

    Furthermore, it is fact that the Japan event was organised by both the Jackson camp and Broderick Morris who gave more than one interview about it prior to it. And the only person from the press accompaging them was a Raymone Bain confidante writing for the sister2sister magazine. So the press following Jackson like a dog in heat is just plain stupid, they are there because camp Jackson wants them to be there. The biggest obstacle is that Jackson has not produced any stuff (be it music or otherwise) worthwile for a long time, but he still wants to be on the frontpage nonetheless……he is, just because he is in the papers or chased by paparazzi, neither a legend nor genius nor a humanitarian, he is a celeb who is just famous for being famous. Seems to be just normal now in Americas celebrity culture where a Paris Hilton produces headlines for doing nothing substantial. But that is pop culture, it lives off corn kings – Jackson is just the oldest one.

  • skincolor

    Michael Jackson is a musical GENIUS aliken to Mozart for this century. He happens to be a BLACK MAN. Which makes the MEDIA and racist pigheads want to find REASONS to DISRESPECT HIM. HE in no way is aliken to PARIS HILTON. Michael Jackson is one of, if not THE Greatest Entertainers of Modern Day History. He helped define and shape music in the 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s, and 00s. I feel for people who cannot understand his genius. He is not a humanitarian? Ha…he is most definately a humanitarian, and no amount of investigations or Haters can take away from the fact that a BLACK MAN is in the same league of ELVIS and The Beattles! He has EARNED it! Michael Jackson is a SUPERSTAR and because of the amount of PROSECUTION he’s faced, he has been made into a MANDELA for the next generation!

  • http://GPost Team Lara Croft

    Prince branched out w/ different types of music but he did not alienate himself from the black community.

    Michael has attempted to turn himself into Elizabeth Taylor. What does that have to do with a skin disease?

    Of course, Michael will always be black and this is a fact but please don’t tell me that he has been so connected to the black community. That is why his albums had not been selling on the black charts. And I am not black, btw. I just think it’s offensive when Michael is in trouble, he comes running back to his roots after trying to turn himself into Liz Taylor.

    He is too busy with Liz Taylor, bubbles, and 10 year old boys sleeping over for warm milk to be concerned about the black community.

    If he was not a millionaire, we would all think he is weird.

    Michael should not have 10 year old kids over his house, especially given that Michael at the time did not have kids himself. So the kids were coming over to play with Michael not another kid.

    That is weird.

    And yes Michael, it is weird to fall asleep in the same bed with a 10–13 year old boy – even if you don’t do anything to them. You are not their relative. You should not have them in your bed – I don’t care how innocent it is.

    It’s inappropriate.

    Three cases of child molestation against Michael? All lying? What a coincidence.

    Again, I ask you, WHY ISN’T PRINCE BEING CHARGED WITH THIS? Why just Michael?

  • http://GPost Team Lara Croft

    He lightens his skin, turns his nose into Liz Taylor’s English nose, pays some white nurse to have white kids for him, marries the daughter of Elvis (who did not like race mixing, btw) : how is that connected to the black community?

    I am not black and I can see Michael has actually DISRESPECTED the black community.

    The nice Jackson is Janet. Michael is a creep.

  • skincolor

    WHY ISNT PRINCE BEING CHARGED?

    Prince -although I respect him IS NOT A HUMANITARIAN, a POLITICAL FORCE, or a LEGEND who CHALLENGED and CHANGED the music industry the way Michael Jackson DID AND WON!!!!!!!!! NOR did Prince BUY the Beattles Catalog and MARRY ELVIS’s Daughter

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2l7gxrQ2c6o Here is a video on the extortion of the case. The second case in 2003, was also extortion, The Arvivos-thats the family that accused him in 2003, has also made sexual abuse clames on a department store which were unfounded. They’re SCAMMERS, and now the mother has been indicted for welfare fraud.

    I do plead for people who are HATERs..to take some time–15 minutes and DO THE RESEARCH for yourself, and not just continue to hate….

    Michael Jackson’s albums might not have sold in the black community because he BRANCED out…true genius cannot just stay in their own community. We didnt need to hear Off the Wall for 30 more years…he wouldnt have been Michael or have the LARGE and DIVERSE fan base he has. He has done rock-GIVE INTO ME, Pop, Inspirational Songs, HIpHOp-2000 Watts…and in there is some of his GENIUS his versitility…..

    Also if you see MJ’s interview on 60 minutes, he didnt say he was in the bed, yes he digressed and said even if he was in the bed it was ok. He didnt see bed as sexual. If he had said, Its okay to sit on a couch and watch tv with a child, there would have been no problems. But Americans in general are oVERLY sexualized. Im not saying that sleeping in the bed with children was a good idea, but BED does not have to immediately mean sex. Many people would have a problem with a father sleeping in the bed with his young daughter. What should be wrong with a parent sleeping with their own child? YEs I understand those werent his children, but I am stating that men face many double standards as well. Many are afraid of kissing and hugging their children in public–and be seen as weird.

    Also IMO–Bubbles is dead–CHIMPS simply dont live that long, but Mike doesnt want to tell the children

  • skincolor

    He lightens his skin,

    He has vitiligo. I guess most people would have prefered for him to show up on stage with SPOLTCHES and REALLY have been seen as a FREAK.

    turns his nose into Liz Taylor’s English nose,

    Mike had his nose done, and did other physical alterations, yes, but that doesnt make him hate his race. And if you take a look, so did other members of his family. Just because someone is ashamed of their looks doesnt correlate immediately to being ashamed of their race. And IF he did have issues with his race–and by that I mean the surgery, because the skin color wasnt a choice—he like MANY other POOR Blacks born in the 50s SHARE that problem, which they must work through…

    pays some white nurse to have white kids for him, marries the daughter of Elvis (who did not like race mixing, btw) : how is that connected to the black community?

    That was 10 years ago..the kids are still here. He can marry whoever he pleases. I believe the children are his, and if they arent, then they are still his, he’s been raising and caring for them. Also as far as marrying Lisa-that was their business and their marriage. Nicholas Cage, who Lisa later married was a HUGE elvis fan…and they later divorced

    I am not black and I can see Michael has actually DISRESPECTED the black community. The nice Jackson is Janet. Michael is a creep.

    Janet is seen as the “nice” jackson, because she stayed in her “place”. She didnt try to CREATE and CHANGE History!

    My 9 yr old daughter wouldn’t be seen dead in those clothes and shoes that Whacko’s daughter is wearing. His children are either going to hate him for what he’s doing to them, keeping them secluded from the real world and dressing them like miniature nerdy versions of himself, or they’re going to become just as abnormal as him.

    Prince branched out w/ different types of music but he did not alienate himself from the black community.

    Michael has attempted to turn himself into Elizabeth Taylor. What does that have to do with a skin disease?

    Of course, Michael will always be black and this is a fact but please don’t tell me that he has been so connected to the black community. That is why his albums had not been selling on the black charts. And I am not black, btw. I just think it’s offensive when Michael is in trouble, he comes running back to his roots after trying to turn himself into Liz Taylor.”
    Well, that’s it! You’re not black, so shut the fukc up! Don’t dare to tell people how black people think about him! He has always been in touch with black people! He has always been around, worked with and collaborated with black people! Just because you close your eyes to it, to create a superficial point doesn’t mean that he has abandoned the black “community”!

    “Invincible” has been at #1 for 4 weeks and spent 14 weeks in the Top 10 on Billboards RnB Album charts (17 weeks in the Top 20)!! “Butterflies” spent 5 weeks at #2 and 14 weeks in the Top 10 on Billboards RnB singles charts (21 weeks in the Top 20)!! So, wtf are you talking about???

    Let us black people decide whether he has abandoned us or not! Thank you!

    Prince didn’t get accused of being a child molester because he wasn’t in contact and wasn’t seen with children! Besides, what bullshit point is that anyway! WTF does this has to do with Prince??

    RE: FIONA

    If the children were dressed in “trendy” styles and clothes, people would probably be trying to figure out who designed the clothes…these clothes are ambigous and simple…albiet a bit old fashioned

  • PatrickS77

    How shallow are you people! Making fun of the clothes of a nine year old girl!?! And you pretend to care about those children?!?

  • MJFAN

    The people on here with the negative comments seriously need to get a life.
    What makes you an expert on Michael and his children.
    Those kids have been out in public many times without Michael and havent had to wear masks because the media dont know their identity so Michael covering their faces while they are with him is giving them freedom not shutting them away.
    I saw a musical last year with Michael and the children and they sat there and watched the show just like any other loving family, then as soon as they got outside thats when Michael covered their faces because he knew paps would be taking pictures.
    Being in the presence of michael and his children showed me what a fantastic father he is and what gorgeous children they are.
    I dont care where those kids came from..Michael is a super dad to them and thats all that matters.
    Keep your evil comments to yourselves because you have no idea what its like to be someone in his position.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ I love the person above justifying Wacko Jacko for us.

    Yes, I KNOW I am not black but I certainly have the right to say Michael has been disrespectful to the black community. That is not a right only black people have. Are you saying only black people have the right to decide if and when injustices are done against black people? Are we not all in this together as Americans? Is that not the whole point? I can be non-black but I can STILL see when someone has disrespected the black community.

    Michael has used the black community to his benefit. When he is doing well, he aligns himself with his Liz Taylor crowd of overdrugged nutsos.

    When he is in court fighting for his reputation, he all of a sudden needs the Nation of Islam to claim he is being terrorized. Please Michael!

    Janet stayed in her place???????????? No. Janet is smart. She kept her private life out of the public eye. She ended up in a relationship with a man who worships her. She is smart to understand the sign of the times and put out relevant albums. She changes her image constantly without changing the beautiful black woman that she is (even is she has gone under the knife) she is still stunning and still represents black women well.

    I don’t see how in terms of physical image any black man or any young black boy can look up to Michael and say he physically in terms of image represents tem well when Michael has done everything to alter how he was born.

    I BRING UP PRINCE VS MICHAEL: Because there is this theory that because Michael is a famous, rich black man, he is being persecuted. My point is Prince is smart enough to live his life in a way that does not warrant such attacks and legal cases.

    Michael is stupid. He is a millionaire. He is famous. He should know that what Joe Blow can get away with – he cannot – because he is under the scrutiny of the public’s eyes. Comes with the territory.

    So that means NO SLEEPOVERS WITH 10 YEAR OLD BOYS. Sorry, that’s weird anywa way you look at it. AGAIN, THERE WERE NO KIDS THAT AGE AT MICHAEL’S HOUSE DURING THE SLEEPOVERS AND MICHAEL IS NOT RELATED TO THESE KIDS SO IT IS WEIRD THAT A 40 PLUS MAN HAS 10 YEAR OLD BOYS SLEEPING OVER, SLEEPING IN THE SAME BED!!!!!!!!!!!!

    And in the interview, Michael said he found NOTHING wrong with the sleepovers. All he did was make “warm milk” for them.

    It is not a healthy relationship to build with a kid (who is not your relative). Sorry. You can’t sell me on this one – no matter how much you try.

    So if you have your 10 year old son, you would let him sleep over Michael’s house, in the same bed, when you are not there? Because as you say: there’s nothing wrong with that, right?

  • ParentingSkills

    Why are Mike’s parenting skills constantly reviewed by the public. When we all saw the spectacle of the Ozzy Osbourne family……..

  • showtime

    Anne, what are you talking about. “Michael Jackson is famous for being famous.” The man has sold over 750 MILLION ALBUMS WORLDWIDE to date as per the Guinnes Book Of World Records. 104 MILLION COPIES OF THRILLER, also as per the Guinnes Book Of World Records. You don’t have to like him, but you can’t deny his place in music history.

    As for the media coverage he received in Japan. The entire three days was covered by the ASSOCIATED PRESS and picked up by other media outlets ALL AROUND THE WORLD. LOL!

    The media reports on EVERY little rumor they hear about Michael. They don’t have to report on him at all, but they are OBSESSED with him and apparently can’t help themselves. LOL!

    Last week, there were a MILLION stories in the press, because Michael Jackson was NOT in the hospital.
