Michael Jackson - Katherine Jackson 'Concerned' For Paris' Acting Career

Michael Jackson's mother Katherine has reservations about her granddaughter's acting career as she is convinced the King of Pop would not have wanted Paris to pursue a career in entertainment at such a young age.
The late Thriller icon's 14-year-old daughter is desperate to be an actress and will make her big screen debut in 2013 fantasy film Lundon's Bridge and The Three Keys.
However, Katherine, Paris' legal guardian, admits she was reluctant to let the youngster chase her Hollywood dream.
She tells U.S. talk show host Piers Morgan, "I'm pleased and concerned (for Paris) at the same time because I don't think that Michael would have wanted her to be out there this soon. But she wanted it so badly. She kept saying, 'Please, Grandma! I want this, you know.' It was something she really wanted so I just gave in and said OK.
"I said, 'How do you know you can act? You haven't had acting (experience).' So I started sending her to acting (classes). Before then she said, 'Just try me, just try me. I can cry on cue.' She showed me how she can cry. She's very good."
Michael, who was just a boy when he shot to fame in The Jackson 5, went to great lengths to shield his three children from the spotlight, covering their faces with masks and blankets when they stepped out in public.

Please Katherine come on! It was just Katherine who pushed her in acting as Larry King, a Jackson family friend, is involved! And if Katherine really wanted to respect Michael's wishes she would have done it simply but from the beginning she did the opposite by throwing them as food to the media and I do think it's true that was Katherine who wanted Paris to cry at the Memorial Service at Staples Center (she cried without tears strangely)!

more inane bs comments from the peanut gallery?? must you always throw ka ka at the fan? dont you know it will only boomerang and land on your face. grandma jackson, didnt force anyone to do anything. she is a gentle caring woman who does not spend her time thinking up ludicrious fairy tales. she is down to earth and loving. mj left the children in her care, knowing she would always do right by grandma.so button it, nasty people

give it up already. paris loved her daddy. not crying at his memorial would have been out of character. crying was the correct mode to let everyone know how she felt and say good bye to daddy.you people are unnecessarily rude. do you make up this crap because you believe it or just to be hurtful.mind your business. let mj rest in peace and his children grow up as grandma sees fit. mj trusted and loved her more than anyone else. he knew she would nuture them. youre a bunch of stone thrower who are not without horrific tales of terror about people you dont even know. keep your nasty mouths buttoned. get a life instead of trying to make mj,his family, and grandma the brunt of your heinious bs

to: zen2580 you got it. had grandma refused time and again, paris would have been more adamant about a foray into acting. life is learned through experience, not forced upon anyone. now she will come to her own decision about whether or not to swim with pirannah who pray upon persons who are in the public eye. grandma, will always do right by the children. however, there are things they will have to learn to deal with themselves. i hardly think after daddy came to such an horrific end, any of them will follow the path to drugs, rather they will be the best they can be to honor mj's legacy and love
