Michael Jackson’s Children Eye Up Stardom
Michael Jackson’s three children are said to be looking forward to a life in show business, as it’s revealed that they are set to lend their voices to a cartoon animation.
Prince 15, Paris 14 and Blanket 10, are reportedly keen to start a career in the entertainment industry, and will make their first steps by providing voice over’s for a remake of a popular Asia cartoon for a US audience.
It has been suggested that none of the three children who grew up in the media spotlight share their father’s talented singing voice, so are looking to other possible entertainment ventures.
Michael’s daughter Paris is particularly keen to get into acting, and is already set to star in the upcoming film Lundon’s Bridge and Three Keys, which is due for cinema release in 2014. It is thought that after she lends her voice to the new cartoon, an array of live-action roles will come her way.
It may come as a surprise that eldest children Paris and Prince are so determined to follow in a similar career path to their dad after they first hand witnesses the media and public intrusion that occurred in his life. Michael made a huge effort to try keep his children out of the media spotlight by covering their faces with masks when out in public, but it seems the children who are thought to struggle at school, have still caught the showbiz bug.
Michael’s sister Janet Jackson, who also had a huge music career from a young age, recently revealed she wanted Paris to wait until she was older before pursuing her acting dreams, and instead wanted her niece to enjoy her childhood: “You’re only young once and to really have a wonderful time and enjoy it, she has the rest of her life to be an adult, and she should stuffy, she should go to school and study the craft and think about college and maybe study abroad acting and then when she becomes 18 she could dive into it if she wants.”
It is a widespread belief that being thrust into stardom at such a young age caused the various problems and battles Michael encountered in his private life. With his childhood virtually stolen from him, Michael appeared to regress back to this lost youth as an adult and struggled to conform to societies norms.
