So I'm reading today's metro winnipeg newspaper and Paris Jackson, Michael's daughter, is talking about her decision to take up acting. Which is great. Good luck to her I wish her all the success in the world ..
But what causes me concern and pushes me to make this blog post is how she says her decision to act is due to her father. In an upcoming interview on Ellen she says "My dad was in the movie Moonwalker and I knew he could sing really well, but I didn't know he could act. I saw that and I said, "Wow I want to be just like him."
Now I'm one of the few people in the world who sat through Moonwalker for its entire duration. Horrible horrible movie. Michael Jackson was a brilliant singer and dancer, but as far as acting is concerned .. not so good. In fact if you think Michaels role in Moonwalker was impressive, I worry for your sanity. Its bad, its bad, you know it. It's up there with mariah carreys glitter as one of the top 5 reasons singers shouldn't act. Fortunately marky mark and eminem are arguments in the other direction. Jamon.. heehee.
