Should Prince And Paris Jackson Have Spoken At The Grammys?


Can we talk for a minute about Michael Jackson’s kids, Prince and Paris Jackson, accepting the lifetime achievement award on behalf of their father at the Grammys last night? First, they’re gorgeous kids who seem healthy and well-adjusted and it’s heartening to see them no longer hiding behind veils like they did when their dad was alive. But just because they aren’t hiding anymore, I’m not sure it’s the best idea to parade them in front of millions and millions of viewers only months after they lost their father. Speaking on a stage like that is hard enough for a seasoned professional, but these are young kids who aren’t experienced performers. Poor Paris could barely get the words out, and what she said didn’t really make any sense. Can you imagine the mix of nerves and grief in a situation like that? I don’t know … maybe there’s an argument that accepting the award and publicly expressing the love they have for their father is therapeutic. I just hope they have people who are more concerned with their emotional well-being than turning them into public figures in Michael’s memory. What are your thoughts? [via YouTube] Keep reading »

Gerard Butler Does A Not-So-Flattering Michael Jackson Impression

What exactly is Gerard Butler doing in this photo? He’s recreating that insane moment in 2002 when Michael Jackson dangled baby Blanket—with an, uh, blanket over his head—out of a window while the paparazzi snapped pics. Instead of a baby, Gerard has opted for a potted plant and towel. What do you think—is he hilarious for reminding us of a bizarro incident that’s been forgotten in the wake of Michael Jackson’s death? Or is this just tacky? Keep reading »
