Paris Jackson, the 13-year-old daughter of the late Michael Jackson, has landed a role in a series of movies. She has been committed to a five movie deal for Lundon's Bridge and the Three Keys. Paris is scheduled to star as the young girl who becomes brainwashed by the jellyfish queen.
Michael Jackson with all of his oddities, and there were many, was very protective of his children. He talked often about his childhood was stolen from him by his overly aggressive stage father who pushed the entire family into show business as a way to support himself.
Now that Michael is gone the children are being raised by the grandparents. One must ask themselves are they just repeating history and putting this child out there to exploited all in vain to make more money for themselves.
I hope that for this young lady's sake that she is doing this by her volition and she is not being pushed into a life of fame that she may not be mature enough to handle.
Child stars don't generally fare very well later in life. I hope that her guardians keep a look out for the pitfalls of fame that they were obviously unable to keep Micheal out of.
