A British tabloid is questioning the authenticity of little Paris Michael Katherine Jackson’s mournful dry eyed tribute to her guardian, Michael Jackson during his public memorial at the Staples Center yesterday.

Britain’s The SUN newspaper accused the Jackson family of pushing little Paris in front of the microphone after she was forced to live her entire life behind a veil.

Taking children to a funeral is one of the most difficult decisions a parent will ever have to make.

But the King of Pop’s young daughter speaking as the climax of the memorial just wasn’t right.

Paris didn’t look comfortable and more importantly, capable, of doing it.

As the family gathered on stage I was surprised to see the children being paraded in front of a gold coffin holding the remains of their beloved father.

Then, as JANET Jackson struggled to lower the mic stand for her niece’s tiny frame, I just couldn’t believe my eyes.

Apparently, The SUN wasn’t impressed with the sobbing Paris crying a river of air. The rag even went so far as to label the entire event a “macabre circus.”

Though we here at sandrarose.com are inclined to agree that tearless crying is a mite suspicious — even we are willing to give the kid a break.

    Why the sudden love of quoting tabloids. Where’s the story about the tooth fairy and Michael fathering Ponoco?

    These stories are so stupid.

  • coaretained

    and as I said yesterday.. when these kids are all fkkd up b/c of the dumb shyt people write and then sell to make a dollar.. who’s fault will it be??

  • pinky2083

    They are so wrong for saying that. I do believe she meant every word she said. She’s a child, did they expect her to go up there and give a perfect speech?

    regardless if her eyes were dry or not..the fact remains that for the last 2 weeks this child has awaken every morning and her father is no longer there..there is nothing fake about that..from someone who has a lost a parent-my prayers go out to these children God Bless

    The Sun, like Faux News is owned by Rupert Murdoch, so that says a lot about their credibility. Seems somebody over there just had to rain on this parade.

    I’ve lost relatives I’m very, very close to and can’t remember shedding a tear. I’m not insensitive, I just express my grief in celebrating their life. Bet The Sun would consider me fake too but I don’t give a fake British newspaper’s rat’s arse if they did…and I’ve got British in the family so they could say what they want!

    There is such a thing as being “all cried out”. It has been almost two weeks. The body can cry for days and then all the sudden “no tears”, but the emotion is always there.

  • SunnyPA

    I immediately thought her speaking was a bit forced but doesn’t mean it was fake.

    Sandra, you know that I’m usually behind you on your posts but the MJ posts are becoming a little uncomfortable. Can we move on from them until there’s NEW information out there.

  • ELove

    Exactly HOW MANY SECONDS past when she stop speaking AND turned into her Auntie Janet’s arms ??? HOW LONG does it take the effects of crying to start showing ??? U know the EYES start watering up AND THEN they start to trickle down your face… HOW LONG DOES THAT TAKE ???

    It’s INSANE how far YT Racists Minded-n-Thinking individuals will go to discredit A Black ICON and His Family

    PHUCK ALL OF THESE INDIVIDUALS (They can ALL go SUCK AZZ)

  • JustMe1

    he’s her FATHER Sandra! genetics or adoption do not matter… go to dictionary.com… to repost this story is low, even for you!

  • dcwife1622

    I agree ELove……..

    Well the YT’s aren’t the only ones. Last time I checked SR was not YT. She’s doing a good job of bringing that mess to her loyal readers and most are black. We don’t visit those YT sites because we don’t want to read the negativity so she makes sure she post’s the dumb mess. This is getting worse than Obama. Bloggers will sell their damn souls to get hits. SMDH!

  • luvly1957

    Sandra, I KNEW U WOULD SAY SOMETHING NEGATIVE, IF NOBODY ELSE CAIGHT YOUR LINE “HER GUARDIAN”, u liek FAUX,NANCY GRACE, BILL O’REILLY are all so insenstive and negative. DAMN, the man died and on their birth certificates it says he is the “FATHER” and they called him such then that’s what da FUK he is period.

  • http://myspace.com/rayne215 spongebobfan

    also it was not planned JAnet and toya was gonna speak but paris wanted to speak after she broke down the ended the family remarks time..

  • luvly1957

    AMEN dcwife AMEN. Get those hits Sandra maybe in a minute u won’t have to work as a (ha)nurse anymore.

    OMG… The child lost her “only parent”….

    It sadden me that these innocent kids have been lied on, talked about and torn to pieces by the media. First of all, who gives anybody the right to say somebody is not there daddy? The last time I check any man can make a baby but it Takes a good strong man to raise one. So on that note, to anybody who speaks ill my God have mercy on your soul. A father and a dad is the person who raise you. A sperm donor bails out and leaves his kids high and dry. So if Michael isn’t there blood father, who gives a f**k. He is the one who took care of them while through, there sickness and in health. He is the one who stayed around while the money hungry mother traded her kids for riches.

    Do you know how many people even on this blog that probably was raised by there stepdad. There mom got remarried and there dad bailed out, it was no way you could tell them the man that they saw everyday. The man who was there when they needed him, the man that guided them to adult hood is not there father. It’s nobody’s right nor business where the sperm came from, those are very much his kids. A father is more than a lying down and making a baby. Being a father and a dad start after the baby is born until you see them off into adult hood. I very disappointed in you Sandra–I know you write certain stuff cuz this your blog. But are you that heartless? As a black woman and I don’t care how many times Mike bleached his skin, the one thing that we will do is protect our kids. Just like your mother protected you so I think you calling his kids. The three as he raised as his own, or that Mike wanted white kids and he wouldn’t have it any other way. So what, the point here these Kids are old enough to read this mess. Have some type of heart when you write neg things like that.

    How do we know Michael told his kids how they were conceived, what gives us the right to even bring this up. He raise those babies, isn’t that what matters most??? Now they will have a question in there mind about this and it’s sad because we had no right to bring it up. I mean the white media slammed him to, however as a community I think the one thing we should all want is what’s best for the kids no matter what there skin color is.

    Every interview Ice Cube does they ask him how many kids he has and he say’s four and they said you mean three and he said no I have four kids. My wife had a son when I married her but he is my son to, I’ve raised him from the time he was two and that my son it doesn’t matter about blood.

    And even though I can’t stand Puffy he claims Qunicy when he looks just like AL B Sure because he was a little baby when him and Kim hooked and he raised him. (although he skips his little cutie chance another blog rant) And how Rev Run three oldest kids all call Justine Momma and love her and consider her there mom cuz she raised them not there mother. So at the end of the day blood means nothing look at Keyshia Cole and how she was abandon by her mom for crack and Ms Cole stepped in and raised her. So Michael is there real dad because blood don’t mean nothing, if you skipping out on you duties.

    Anyway my long rant is over, sorry for the bible I’ve just been really upset about these kids having to now know this about Michael. And Sandra I love your blog but for me and my blog–I’ll skip out on writing certain things because if you don’t stand for something you’ll fall for everything and I refuse to let this industry take my soul like it’s done to so many others.

    sorry for the mis spelling to much to go back and read lol and I know Paris was real. She misses her dad all of them do, that’s the only man they’ve ever known. And to Ms Debbie Rowe go sit yo a** down somewhere trying to get the kids now, when you had twelve years to try to get them. Michael didn’t force her to sign over her rights she did it for the money and once you sell your soul to the green devil you ain’t never getting it back…

    Damn you Sandra! I was trying to ignore the fact that no tears were shed!

    those blue eyes of hers…she is a test tube baby
    she probably can’t even make tears

  • aqtpie

    Wow this is so sad; this poor man can’t even escape in death what he so desperately tried to escape in life and now it seems the kids are now going to endure the same things he did.

  • coaretained

    Are all gay bloggers this heartless? First perez and now auntie… smh

  • http://myspace.com/thegameoncw Bird

    lol. Those British rags are so funny. I need to start reading them for comic relief. Paris is not a star. She is not used to speaking in front of a crowd of 11,000 people. I have no doubt she was extremely nervous and didn’t know how to act. I think her anquish was real whether she was crying or not. Watching her during the rest of the ceremony, she seemed to be enjoying the salute to her dad. I think she’s proud of him and had a ball singing We Are The World. It was just hard for her to speak. What’s the big deal?

  • Gagirl73

    This blog as stuck a nerve with me today. So if there is no tears there is no pain! That’s a TRIF and a B.S. comment!
    Whats goes around will come around!!!

  • intensemocha

    HAVE SOME CLASS!

    SHE WANTED TO SPEAK-REVIEW THE CLIP AND YOU WILL SEE JANET SAY SOMETHING TO HER AND SHE NODS HER HEAD

    AND SO THE LITTLE GIRL WAS ACTING-GET THE FUG OUTTA HERE SHE EXPRESSED HERSELF EXACTLY LIKE MANY OTHER 11 YEAR OLD GIRLS WOULD HAVE

    WHO CARES IF YOU GUYS DIDN’T SEE TEARS, WHERE YOU THERE, OR EVEN CLOSE ENOUGH TO VIEW HER FACE AFTER SHE SPOKE

    AND I GUESS JANET ESCORTING HER OFF STAGE BECAUSE SHE WAS VISIBLY UPSET WAS ALL IN ACT AS WELL

    MAN GIVE THESE PEOPLE SOME PEACE AND LEAVE THEM THE HELL ALONE-THE ONLY REASON THEY WERE THERE WAS TO ALLOW THE PUBLIC TO REMEMBER MICHAEL-IT HAS TO BE HARD ENOUGH TO LOSE A LOVED ONE BUT I CAN ONLY IMAGINE HOW HARD IT MUST BE TO MOURN A LOVED ONE PUBLICLY AND HAVE PEOPLE SCRUTINIZE HOW YOU MOURN

    ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME???????????????ARGHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!

    GOD FORBID YOU DIE AND SOMEONE DRUG YOUR NAME THROUGH THE MUD AND CRITICIZED YOUR FAMILY @ HOW THEY MOURN YOUR DEATH-OH YEAH I THINK THAT IS PART OF THE PROBLEM -YOU WOULDN’T GARNER A TENTH OF THE PUBLIC’S ATTENTION THAT MICHAEL’S DEATH HAS

    You know, that would have been a damn good joke under other circumstances. I’m afraid for these children. The media is seriously coming for them. I’m praying it will blow over soon for their sake. By the way, I don’t know how Mike worked it out, but those children are gorgeous including Paris’ beautiful gigantic blue eyes. I want to steal Blanket. He is beyond adorable.

    i’ve been in emotional pain before and wanted to cry and no tears..was i faking too? These rags need to stop..these are children PERIOD when does it stop??? As for the “guardian”..I know exactly where you are going with that..however,as a woman who was raised by a man who was not my biological father..never adopted me..he was still the best father I ever had and I will always call him daddy..and i side w/the children who is affected by the death of the only parent they have ever known on this one

  • kwallace577

    here they go…the media…messing with that man babies and he not even buried good yet.

    i was waiting on it to start. sad that i did not have to wait long.

  • wiggy2272003

    Her speaking WAS NOT forced, it was obviously just not planned she got up there and decided she wanted to say something and then struggled with the thoughts and emotions. I am disapointed in people. and for crys who is banned at least theres one thing Auntie got right. The only parent this child ever knew has DIED and you think she is faking her heartache because y’all didn’t see the water fast enough? SHUT THE FCUK UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    hey Kwall! Sandra you and the Sun are both wrong for posting this. She’s a child… period. there are some things that are off limits and this is one of them!

  • speaking da truth

    And to think, people often wondered why he made them wear a mask! Now you have your answer…

  • wiggy2272003

    I just went back and read the comments which brought to my attention the fact that you called Michale her guardian. That was probably the one of the lowest and unfactual remarks(and we all know there are plenty) you have ever made.
    BY LAW when a man is married to a woman As Michael was married to Debbie Rowe and that woman bears a child her husand BY LAW is considered the father EVEN if he doesn’t sign the birth certificate. You are typing slanderous UNTRUTHS about a child and her DEAD FATHER. I wish I knew who the attorney was handling the Jacksons affairs cuz I would shonuff forward them this post in hopes they would send you a cease and desist with a quickness. Are blog hits really worth selling your soul for? Really?

  • miamore73

    Well if it was a ploy to pull at heart strings IT WORKED!!!

    She may not have had enough tears for the Sun or Star or whoever but she had been crying through most of the ceremony with her granma. I saw her put her tissue is her purse while Marlon was talking.

  • http://myspace.com/eastpointvet eastpointvet

    if u watch the video before she spoke janet was gonna speak and u can see her saying i wanna say something and janet was like are you sure? and she shakes her head yep. and tears are not always instant i know my daughter has that break down moment before she cries and it was simply that show a pic of her after they walked off the stage im sure she had tears then

  • kwallace577

    indesign….’sup!!! where you been?

  • jazi65

    I’d be surprised if she had any tears left to shed. She spoke from her heart and those ppl @ the sun need to be slapped with a bag of rocks!

    This is exactly why he hid is children and covered them up..

  • pointhimout

    wow. see, the children were fine and protected as long as they were covered. you know it’s fair game from here til eternity now. she could’ve stood there and slit her wrist and they’d still say it was staged and the razor was planted on the mic, handed to her by aunti janet. some people are just crazy. i accept that.

    the kid was hurting.
