Thirteen-year-old Paris Jackson is following in her father’s famous footsteps, already having landed a role in the upcoming fantasy film Lundon’s Bridge and the Three Keys. But if her aunt, Janet Jackson, had her say, Paris would be spending her teenage years a little differently.
“I’d prefer for her to wait,” Janet (Miss Jackson if you’re nasty) told talk show host Jay Leno during a recent appearance on The Tonight Show. “I think she should enjoy her youth.”
Of course, being a child star is something that the singer and actress knows a lot about.
Janet got into the entertainment industry at age 7, appearing alongside her brothers – The Jackson 5 – in Las Vegas, then moving on to television roles, and eventually launching her own successful singing career.
“You’re only young once and [I want her] to really have a wonderful time and enjoy it,” Jackson explains. “She has the rest of her life to be an adult and she should study. She should go to school and study the craft and think about college and maybe study abroad, acting, and then when she becomes 18 she could dive into it if she wants.”
Tell us what you think…. Should Paris Jackson hold off on her acting career, or is it okay for her to start now?
