Paris Jackson

If you guessed that Paris Jackson‘s controversial Rolling Stone interview was her launching pad to TV and movie stardom, you guessed right.

Michael Jackson‘s only daughter has reportedly signed on to the cast of Lee Daniels‘ TV musical STAR.

The pretty 18-year-old is taking advantage of her famous last name to pursue her dreams to be an actress.

Jackson reportedly met with Daniels for a screen test last week — and the test went well. It’s a wonder that Tyler Perry didn’t call her first to do a screen test for him.

Sources tells TMZ Paris is already filming in Atlanta, Georgia, but it’s unclear if she’ll have a cameo role or a regular part on the show, which launched last month to poor reviews.

STAR features acting veterans Queen Latifah, Lenny Kravitz, Benjamin Bratt, and Naomi Campbell, along with newcomers Jude Demorest (as Star Davis); transvestite Amiyah Scott, and singer-turned actor Quincy Brown.

According to WENN.com, Jackson has been taking acting classes for years.

    I tried to watch this how……the lead character irked my nerves, acting like an entitled brat and it seemed that everyone bowed to her…………said FUKK it and am not looking at it again. Not even on a drunk day at home with nothing to watch…I’d rather paint my walls and watch it dry 3 times first.

  • Sucker Free

    She could play Madonna…

  • http://www.missjhaneuniverse.com Monday

    Remember when Tyler Perry said he would help Bobby Kristina’s acting career after Whitney Houston died??
    Why do I have the same bad feeling about this??

    Paris didn’t want to be in the spotlight and wanted to stay with her mother….what changed??
    Don’t do it Paris. Do like Blanket and the other one… Run and HIDE

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy
  • Dr. P

    Lee Daniels hires any and everybody. I knew this show was trash when the baddest punta was cast.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Ehhhh…Bobbi Kris stayed high as a kite. On top of the fact that she couldn’t act. TP could only do so much.

  • A.P. Millz-CT

    Who tf is watching that show?? Lmaooooo

    Poor Paris, thinks she’s black when her adoptive daddy didn’t even want to be black, you can’t make this stuff up. LOL

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    I agree with the last two lines. She did stay out of the limelight and Prince was out in the open. And I hope they keep Blanket where he is….he seems like the shy, introvert of the 3.

  • Ms.Caramel

    Except if your name is “Monique”

  • Bobby Brown of The Blog

    Its for white people anyway. So they can feel good about themselves. According to Lee. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/fb8d30982d29e5d57be069dda6b76efe0fffbd4c456d875cde6d6011ea0fa73f.jpg

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Right…..cause (as I said below) that little half breed with the blond hair……irked my nerves on both the episodes I attempted to watch. When she bucked on up Lenny K. daughter in the show, cause the child didn’t want to use her daddy money and everybody just stood there………I was done with it. Self entitled heffa irked my nerves!!

  • Buttercup

    Folks still won’t watch your show, Lee.

  • Dr. P

    Yes she was on it, I think she’s been cast as a regular.

  • Bobby Brown of The Blog

    I aint never watched it and never probably will.

  • lilred1

    ?No

  • Bobby Brown of The Blog

    Ugh wont let me reply to @Older Sistah. But I said Kyle said what HE said. Fukk folks

  • Lovezoe

  • Lovezoe

    I wonder if the lee Daniels train over. He posted a pic with Denzel and Laurence talking bout he took them out for dinner but left HIS card at home. He woulda been washing dishes

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    I am purposely at work talking politics EVERY chance I get.

  • Lovezoe

  • THE OLDER SISTAH

    Between Kyle Lowry’s comment and President Obama coming out in support of the protests I’m good for the rest of the day.

  • Lovezoe

    The five minutes I watched you ain’t missed nothing but a bathroom break

  • Carolina Blue

  • Lovezoe

    I thought that was Amina Scott

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    I took one for team…..I should have painted and watched it dry 3 times…would have enjoyed that more.

  • Bobby Brown of The Blog

    Hell no. He still working on the Richard Pryor movie I do belee. Im ready for him to get gone

  • Lovezoe

    Sips

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Its unfortunate that Michael Jackson didn’t have enough pride in his heritage to commission and then adopt any Black children. His hard work has essentially paved an easy path for all 3 of his pre-purchased Caucasian kids, who aren’t even partially believable as Black and frankly, they seem sorta hostile to Black causes and issues as well. Would have been great to see a few Black faces enjoying these benefits.

    Now can this girl even act? Then again, acting talent is not a prerequisite for ANY Lee Daniels project so that’s probably a stupid question.

    Meanwhile, have we found out when Fox plans on taking EMPIRE out of its misery yet??

  • THE OLDER SISTAH

    I don’t think he cares…Lol

  • Lovezoe

    I know he don’t.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    If he starts a PayPal, I’ll contribute to help him pay that fine.

  • Alicia.Ashe

    I won’t watch so………

  • Lovezoe

    Who have you adopted

  • Tammie Reed

    Thats what I don’t like about his programs! He does too much and tries too hard to add popular people from the internet to think their followers will tune in to watch his shows. Most of them have NO prior experience as actors either, Its just overkill if you ask me!

    It sometimes backfires too because although these folks might have a lot of followers that same audience usually does not watch or buy things especially millennials. My teens haven’t watched a real tv show in YEARS. Every one of my kids friends watches stuff on the internet, netflix etc.

  • THE OLDER SISTAH

    We tried to tell them.

  • Jen_no_juice

    And I still won’t watch it

  • Bobby Brown of The Blog

    nah if David Stern was still the commissioner then yes. Adam Silver? Has no fux allocated. He just is keen on them fighting etc out in public.

  • Chardonnai

    She just couldnt go to school and get a proper education. Become a lawyer or a doctor or something. Anything is better than starring in this trash ass show.

  • lilred1

    Wow.. Welp i see what u were saying lol

  • CaliVirgo

    Alternative facts?

  • Emily post

    Fame monster…

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong
  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Had the money to attend the best school in the world!! And at one time I thought she would look to pursue something……but alas!!

  • Bobby Brown of The Blog

    Im sure folks said the same thing about Janet when she came along and wanted to follow in the fam footsteps and went to be on Good Times. It was considered offensive and not that good when it was out too. This show I dont agree with but her trying to act might not be THAT bad.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Over and Over………but they learning real quick. I am still chuckling about the Syrian co-worker, whose husband voted for him and now they need to wait and see of that vacation to DR is going to be possible. I feel sorry for the wife, who did NOT vote for trump….but the hubby…..nope!!

  • B.Sweet Glow-up 2017

    Truth. You know I am. What have I ever done to you?

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    It isn’t her acting that bothers me….it is the show and who produced it and his excuse for it. I hope she gets in, gets the experience and exposure and gets out. But really had hoped she had remained the low key one and did the school route.

    We still have Blanket!!

  • Keesh5000

    Right…Id rather her do anything, anything…that is not related to drugs.

  • THE OLDER SISTAH

    Serves his azz right, but unfortunately we ALL have to suffer for their stupidity.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Right!!

  • Keesh5000

    I dont eva care for a post about any of Michaels children. I dont know why, I just dont

  • B.Sweet Glow-up 2017

    Say what you want to say.

  • B.Sweet Glow-up 2017

    You could have painted my dining room. Next time come through.

  • B.Sweet Glow-up 2017

    Not shyt. Gotcha.

  • Chardonnai

    But really had hoped she had remained the low key one and did the school route.
    ————————————-
    I agree. I hoped she would go to school as well. Trying to act and sing these day is so basic. IMO

  • CaliVirgo

    Nada to meh but to other folk?

  • Chardonnai

    Yes, but Janet had the Jackson genes in her DNA. Janet was born to be a superstart. Paris aint got Jackson DNA. Just the last name….

  • Bobby Brown of The Blog

    it is the show and who produced it and his excuse for it.
    ^^^^^^^^^^^
    Norman Lear was racist and has no excuse. At all. Bc well WHITE and Jewish. School isnt for everyone. I for some reason dont think Paris would be good in school at ALL. I frfr think this is the least embarrasing route for her.

  • Chardonnai

    If she has drug problems, Hollyweird is the last place she needs to be.

  • Chardonnai

    Ditto.

  • Buttercup

    I hope everyone is able to continue to live as they had. If not, I’m lurking in the shadows waiting to buy homes, businesses, and other property that will go into foreclosure.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    I guess that would be the upside.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Anything would have been better than trying to watch this!!

  • Carolina Blue

    I said nothing at all….?

  • Bobby Brown of The Blog

    I dont think she has a drug issue. I think she is rich and young and experimental. I remma when everyone counted Nicole Richie out. Bc she didnt have Richie genes and said she wasnt gonna be shat but a heroin addicted adopted daughter of a star. Same EXACT thing. She got off heroin, got into a few projects…got married and settled down.

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    Humph I knew there was a reason she was “identifying” as black all of a sudden even though she had not once spoke out about racism and the injustices black ppl face ? She justified her boyfriend wearing the confederate flag so to take folks mind off of that she said hey I’m black just so those rating won’t take a dive when she comes on board. Everybody wants to profit off of black ppl but nobody wants to support black ppl everybody wanna be black but don’t nobody want to be black! ? Girl bye!! Your momma and your daddy white you were raised by a black male with mental issues end of story

  • Chardonnai

    Lawd,
    My coworker just told me her brother got shot over the weekend. God damn Chicago. SHYT!

  • Chardonnai

    Touche’

  • Chardonnai

    Everybody wanna be black, but no one wants to BE black…

  • CaliVirgo

    My condolences for your co worker this is getting so close to home my cousin bd was shot murdered in the street a few months ago

  • Chardonnai

    Girl he was a bouncer at a club. Some fool gets into an argument and starts shooting. Her brother got shot in the back. And this was in a GOOD part of the city.

  • bemetoo

    She is as white as the snow on winter day in Vermont

  • http://www.missjhaneuniverse.com Monday

    Will Paris be able to act??

  • CaliVirgo

    I just don’t know nae what happened to the good old days when you would just take an ass whoopin. These bullets are hitting everyone not just there intended target and ruining family’s lives not just the victims but also the shooters fam..just sad?

  • Tonia Hannah

    Ummmmm…. ok lol

  • SailOn

    LOL, These posts be flowing with such a hateful rhythm is just funny af sometimes. But I’m a skeptic too. These screen tests with rich child stars always seem to go well. No one ever tells them they can’t act. Also why do tyler Perry and lee daniels, a much better filmmaker than PERRY IMO, love reality stars and celebutantes.

  • stav

    No thank you!

  • Justlooknout

    In my non Hollywood opinion….they already have a following of some sort.

  • http://olskoolblackflix.com Prof. Taco Juice

    I think after Bobbi Kris, TP won’t cast anymore “children of the dearly departed (too soon)”. I have to admit some of Lee Daniels work is more original but I think both life to put on reality stars (e.g. Kim kardashian on The Counselor…with multiple lines)

  • http://olskoolblackflix.com Prof. Taco Juice

    When Miss Lawrence (who only has a few lines per episode) is the best thing about any show, it needs to be pulled ASAP.

  • MissyJ

    I wanted more for her than Lee Daniels

  • B.Sweet Glow-up 2017

    Say what you’re thinking.

  • B.Sweet Glow-up 2017

    I haven’t done anything to other people. Name one person I’ve done something to.

  • Taylordanes

    Yep!!

  • Cricket404

    She’s wearing my workout shirt. Target $10. Now I like her, think I’ll call her PJ.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    I’m going to sound like a hater. But somewhere are a dozen or so girls who actually trained or have acting credits, but didn’t get this opportunity.

  • T3

    That part!

  • Pink butterfly

    Everyone wants the title but nobody wants to wear the crown. That crown is heavy ?

  • dontgetblocked

    Oh wow. Now I’m going to watch the show. You know now that they have Paris on there. With her being black and all.

  • dontgetblocked

    Or who need the paycheck.

  • dontgetblocked

    What. Good Times was always considered good. Janet had talent and had performed with her family for years.

  • dontgetblocked

    IF??? Chick stay in rehab on the down low.

  • Carolina Blue

    Im drawing a blank

  • BlackFeeMale

    So does she actually have Jackson blood in her? I never knew the details. Just that debbie rowe is her mom. There is something about her look that screams “Jackson” so i always assumed she is definitly a Jackson aka part black/af.am.?

  • Michelle

    So a hard working actress who is deserving of the role and needs the paycheck won’t get the job because this good for nothing suicidal brat who never has to work a day in her life just HAS to be a star. I liked her better with the mask over her face and her mouth shut….

  • Michelle

    Exactly!…..

  • dontgetblocked

    Perfectly said. He earned all that money just to give it back to the white man. Paris who is allegedly black is only seen with white men. Prince Michael …well he just looks like a big old white boy but sounds like a wigga. I’ve only seen him with sprites. Blanket could be white and Hispanic or Middle Eastern. He…well he just looks confused all the time. Poor thing. Bottom line…MJ’s DNA died with him.

  • dontgetblocked

    You’re joking right. She’s lily white with devil eyes.

  • dontgetblocked

    Nice. A cigarette in her hand. She’s on the right track.

  • BlackFeeMale

    Hahaha! No im very serious!!! Something about her eyes give me Ms. Katherine vibes. See this y i asked the garden and not google:)

  • mzmystic

    I get what you’re saying. I agree somewhat. But I hope you felt the same way when Tyler Perry gave Bobbie Kris a chance one part, due to her being messed up about her mother. I just don’t like double standards.

  • Jay

    Paris is pretty. Thats all i have to say about that.

  • fluffi3

    it’s so easy for non-blacks, she probably can’t even act, but because she’s jackson’s “test tube” baby, she gets all the breaks, SMH.

  • SailOn

    Paris is giving me all type of Rachel dolezal vibes.

  • KcoolMuziq

    I wish Prince had produced a daughter. She would have been so gifted and talented. Paris is going to bring those ratings so high. That it will be renewed for the next five years..

  • OkWhatevah

    Soooo…Mike didn’t contribute ANY dna?

  • Malcom Flex

    Still won’t watch. I prefer not to support that mess.

  • Coco

    Is she even half breed? She’s a white girl with a horrible weave; Rachael delozal type of sh!t. I hate her character so much, I can’t watch the whole thing.

  • Jussjess25

    Exactly

  • Jussjess25

    Ones things for sure Paris is gorgeous, I wishe she would put her energy into modeling or something ?

  • Rhyme and Reason

    With Lee Daniels work, just about any celebrity can be plugged in! He delivers nighttime soap dramas. I like Star, and could easily dislike the Star, but she is what you often get when you have been in the system and abused. I can’t stand how they have Queen Latifah looking with those clown wigs, horrible! But, the hard knock girls tryna make it as singers is way better than tryna make it with back pages!

  • Pebbles

    She looking rough, tyrese looking rough

  • the guest

    SPEAK!

  • the guest

    It would be different if Paris used her wealth and resources to start a production company that put herself on and also created jobs for others. What you’re saying is true she is being greedy but that’s Hollywood. By identifying as black, she will take up cultural jobs too.

  • the guest

    No comparison. Bobby Kris was nowhere near as wealthy as Paris Jackson, was not white or as advantaged, was not, lord forgive me, pretty or talented, and was a self destructive drug addict in need of Tyler’s mentorship opportunity because she had no other oportunities.

    Paris Jackson is privileged and do mainstream Hollywood not take a spot on a cultural show. But she will bring ratings.

  • Brook York

    I haven’t watched that show yet.

  • Brook York

    She could be doing alot worse than smoking a cigarette.

  • Brook York

    LOL!

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    Mr. Lawrence

  • Cici

    Rotflmao

  • mzmystic

    I get where you’re coming from but wealth is wealth. No matter who is wealthier, neither one would’ve had to work. And unfortunately, like you said, it will bring ratings and that’s what it’s about. Plus would it have been different if he took a more deeper approach like Tyler perry and said he would mentor her?? Because she may not be addicted to drugs like BK but she does seem troubled. Especially with being suicidal.

  • mzmystic

    I blame Michael for that though. He led those kids to believe that they are apart of him. When Stevie wonder can see those are white kids made by two white parents. So now she believes she’s half black. We all know she’s not but I think she actually believes she is. And that’s because her father told her she was.

  • bemetoo

    Frfr she is pure white not a drop of negro in her and Micheal was a real negro remember he used to have a bell pepper ?

  • Cici

    Lol yeah I remember

  • thehumble1

    I hear the show is really good. I haven’t been interested in watching it.

  • thehumble1

    I have not watched it either. Why you call it mess tho??

  • 2brefrank

    Aww Paris you are in my prayers girl, this life ain’t no crystal stair!

  • Antigone Heart

    The only thing I will be watching on/off is Taboo on FX and a few Japanese animes. I really don’t care for the programming drama that is Lee Daniel’s…affiliated.

  • Not Down With The BS

    Still not watching. Will not support any project by Lee Daniels.

  • Not Down With The BS

    Thinking the same thing she looks just like Debbie Rowe

  • WackaBlocka

    I just want to know why she gotta look like Miley though ….

  • WackaBlocka

    she looks like Miley Cyrus … but you ain’t heard that from me ….lol

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    RIGHT. Working for shits and giggles.

  • Enoughsaid2020

    She has some beautiful eyes!

  • Brook York

    She is shaped like her too.

  • Jay

    Very Pretty.

  • S. Williams

    the girls in the show aren’t the best. it’s definitely a platform for up and coming’s to get their feet wet. from episode 1 to 4 the acting definitely improved. it helps that the newbies are surrounded by seasoned actors/actresses to assist. and honestly….if we all had avenues to help us in the field of our dreams we would use it so I’m not gonna knock her hustle. she’s also using her name to continue humanitarian efforts across the globe. if she can do it, why not?
