Janet Jackson is allegedly not happy with the fact that her niece Paris has landed a role in the forthcoming film, “Lundon’s Bridge and the Three Keys.” Paris, the daughter of the late Michael Jackson, said in the past, “When I was really little, my dad was in the movie ‘Moonwalker’ and I knew he could sing really well, but I didn’t know he could act. “
She continued: “I saw that and I said, ‘Wow, I want to be just like him.'”
But Us Weekly reports that Aunt Janet doesn’t think it’s a good idea. A source tells the magazine, Janet “feels it goes against Michael’s wishes to keep his kids out of the limelight until age 18.” In an interview with Prevention Magazine in May, Janet also stated, “We’ve spoken about the fact that you’re only a child once. I think there’s a time for everything, and now is not the time [to act in films]. I told her I thought she should enjoy being a kid, possibly go to college-or not-but wait till she turns 18. She’s a very tough, smart girl. But it’s a cutthroat industry. I wouldn’t want my child to do it.”
While living, Michael Jackson repeatedly made it clear that he didn’t have a childhood, and his empathy led him to want to help hurting children worldwide.
His children, Prince, Paris, and Blanket were shielded from public view all their lives up until his death in 2009.
Do you think this will be a hindrance to Paris’ childhood, or will the film role help jump start a successful career?
