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.
