Paris Jackson, the 15-year-old daughter of the late pop star Michael Jackson, was hospitalized last night after an alleged suicide attempt. TMZ reports that a 911 call was placed from the family’s Calabasas, California, home around 1:30a.m. regarding a possible overdose and “multiple cuts on one of her wrists.” The teen was taken from the home at 2a.m. to a nearby hospital and reportedly will make a full recovery. This morning, Paris Jackson’s mom Debbie Rowe told “Entertainment Tonight” the teen has “a lot going on.” I should say so! All our good thoughts on with her. Get well soon, Paris!

Okay, okay, she’s still only 14, but doesn’t Paris Jackson look amazing? Girl is channeling Jennifer Lawrence with those bangs, and oh my gosh, her smoky eye is amazing!!! I’m crossing my fingers that she turns out mildly normal and not all Lindsay Lohan crazy, considering how batcrackers her family is. [Photos: Pacific Coast News]
At 14, Paris Jackson is breaking into showbiz in the upcoming film, “Lundon’s Bridge and the Three Keys.” Three years after the death of her father Michael Jackson, Paris opens up to Glamour about stepping into the spotlight, her famous family, and cliques at her high school.
On how her family feels about her acting career: ”A lot of people don’t want me to do it [her aunt Janet Jackson has said, "She has the rest of her adult life to be that actress that she wants to be... Your childhood—you completely lose."], but Aunt La Toya believes in me. She heard me play a little guitar and sing, and she started clapping, ‘Oh my God, oh my God.’ She really does encourage me; it’s just awesome of her.” Read more…
It seems that the Jackson family turmoil may be starting to settle down given that Katherine Jackson has recently been reinstated as a guardian of her grandchildren and her son Jermaine Jackson has backed off on challenging his brother Michael‘s will.
According to the Los Angeles Times, Superior Court Judge Mitchell Beckloff declared that the 82-year-old Jackson matriarch was doing a “wonderful job” with the late singer’s three children,Prince, 15, Paris, 14, and 10-year-old Blanket. Read more…
Paris Jackson was “confused” about why she had to wear a mask in public when she was younger, she tells Oprah on “Oprah’s Next Chapter,” via the BBC. “I understand it now, why my dad would want our face to be covered,” she said. “Like when we went out without him, we wouldn’t be recognized, so we could have a normal childhood.” Read more…
Remember Lindsay Lohan’s plans to debut her Playboy issue on Ellen? Well, there will be no such interview. Following her very eventful Hawaiian vacation, Lindsay failed to hop her early flight back to L.A. yesterday for the taping. So much for that.
The consolation prize, for those that were hyped to hear what Lindsay had to say? Paris Jackson, daughter of Michael, appeared on Ellen in Lohan’s place. The episode, which airs on Thursday, will mark the 13-year-old’s first ever solo interview. Judging by the video preview, which you can watch on Radar Online, Paris seems surprisingly normal and well-adjusted despite her upbringing and the controversy surrounding her father. I, for one, am glad Lindsay bailed — this interview with Paris is bound to be more interesting, and what could Lindsay possibly have to say that we haven’t heard from her before? Trainwrecks are tedious when they only play one note.
After a certain point, the answer to “What Would Suri Do?” just isn’t terribly challenging. This is why we must find new child icons to obsess over. And it looks like Blanket Jackson is the Shiloh Jolie-Pitt of the Jackson clan, stealing all the thunder from the other less pouty children. Even though his sister Paris is more eloquent and his brother Prince Michael is more, um, old, Michael Jackson‘s youngest son Blanket has the magic about him. He’s got fashion icon potential and the talent to fill his dad’s shoes. So we’ve rounded up 10 reasons we’re obsessed with the little guy! Keep reading »
It’s been more than a year since Michael Jackson died, and in December his posthumous album Michael will be released.

It looks like Michael Jackson‘s kids — Prince, 13, Paris, 12, and Blanket, 8 — will be appearing on an upcoming episode of “The Oprah Winfrey Show.” Apparently, Oprah went to visit Michael’s mother, Katherine, to do a story on the late singer’s childhood, legacy, and children, and she sat down with the kids for a backyard chat. Amelia and I share a longstanding fascination with Blanket, so I, for one, am intrigued to see this. I mean: BLANKET! That right there is enough to capture my attention. It makes me want to name my children after random household items. In any case, the Michael Jackson tribute show airs November 8. [People] Keep reading »
