Daddy's girl Paris Jackson

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.

I saw The Dark Crystal as a kid and thought it was the greatest movie ever, and the puppets moved me to emotional highs and lows and made a deep impression on me. Puppets. Just saying...

What about David Bowie's masterful performance in Labyrinth?

@ Reed Solomon
How dare you say that about Michael Jackson! Michael Jackson was the greatest entertainer who ever lived! Not only could he sang and dance but he could also act! Michael Jackson haters such as yourself are just jealous of his talent!

cherenkov, that was a good movie though. I cried when I heard Jim Henson died. I'm not ashamed to admit it!

Shaun: My young self was too busy admiring Jennifer Connelly to pay much attention to David Bowie. But he wasn't horrible. Might be cause he's British. Got the English accent so doesn't need to know how to act.

cherenkov and Shaun.. you both just mentioned movies produced by Jim Henson. Was that on purpose?

Anonymous, the only proof that Michael could act was when he took the stand in court. Oh wait, no, no. that was also in the can't act category.

@ Anon - You need to dig a little deeper for your "entertainment".
