Three years after Michael Jackson's death, there's still plenty of drama in the Jackson family.
Michael Jackson's 14-year-old daughter Paris Jackson has been cast in the upcoming film Lundon's Bridge and the Three Keys and Janet Jackson is not too happy about her niece's burgeoning acting career. In a recent interview with Prevention Magazine, Janet said she advised Paris to wait until she finished high school before trying to follow the legacy in entertainment her father left behind.
"We've spoken about the fact you're only a child once. I think there's a time for everything, and now is not the time [to act in films]," said Janet. ""I told her I thought she should enjoy being a kid, possibly go to college -- or not -- but wait till she turns 18. She's a very tough, smart girl. But it's a cutthroat industry. I wouldn't want my child to do it."
Janet knows a thing or two about what it's like to be a child actor. By the time she turned 18, she had major roles on four different hit sitcoms throughout the '70s and '80s, including Good Times and Diff'rent Strokes. But while Paris has been able play flag football at her school and have a somewhat normal childhood (or as normal as can get when your dad is the self-proclaimed King of Pop), pursuing an entertainment career will likely make Paris the newest child star in Hollywood.
Do you think Paris should pursue an acting career now?
