Jacko Faces the Cameras, Turns Kid Blue

3/24/2009 3:06 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Unmasked and flashing the remainder of his reassembled parts, former King of Pop Michael Jackson left his home away from home -- a Beverly Hills medical building -- shielding one of his doomed kids with a surgical cap on Monday.




For safety, the 50-year-old held on to his child with his human hand.

I've never lived in a fishbowl and I value the fact that I can make decisions and live life in relative anonymity. Michael has given his children the opportunity (by very unorthodox means) to do the same. It's not that often that they are forced to cover their faces and if he explains it to them in a caring parental way that makes sense, it's not traumatizing.

What is weird is not being able to step outside your house without a camera in your grill. It seems worse than it is. When they are free to travel by themselves to a friend's home or the mall, they may thank him for the masks they used to wear because they will blend in as unknowns. If they want to shed their anonymity as adults, that is their choice. I like the fact that he gave them choice, other celebrity children don't get that.

Other celebrity children also don't wear masks so it's def a tradeoff. As a mental health professional that works with kids, I recognize their lives were already going to be weird by virtue of being children of the most famous man in the world so throwing in a mask makes little difference in that regard. It makes a big difference in maintaining their privacy, however.

They are only "Michael Jacksons children" when they are with him. Many times they do things and go places with just security or someone from Michaels staff and no one recognises them. They have even walked past paps at an airport and not been photographed, and then Michael was photographed alone and it was reported in the media that he had travelled without the children! He is trying and suceeding in giving them something he never had as a child, the chance to blend in with the general public and not be recognised and photographed.

There are so many pics of her kids when the kids are only out with their nannies, and where she is nowhere around. Everyone knows what her kids look like. This is NOT the fact with MJ kids. am thinking that MJ knows how horrible it is when you are a child and all you want to do is regular stuff without having it shown in the newspaper the next day. He really has succeeded in protecting his children. They are not going to grow up having every little fart printed in the papers and this will be a bonus for them.

P    

what a load of crap, Its obvious by the fact that you write long ass defence rants that you are the same lamo posting over and over. He is a freak... he is broke and he owes money to some sheiks that want to be paid. Why else do you auction off everything you have.
He should have stayed away *sigh* ah well we can only hope that some pyrotechnics may do the trick again.
Where are his dress suits? i miss seeing him in a dress. So feminine! rawr!!!!

Quick, I beleive he is in a jurisdiction now with a child welfare dept that can investigate him suffocating his kids with some kind crap over their faces when they are in public. Is this not abusive?

MJ is disfunctional on probably every level, except for his obvious talent. No doubt the children realize that they are they are made to behave differently than other children. I am seriously not buying that this behavior is to protect them. Aren't those body guards standing right there? Michael is dillusional. Is he not considering that he beyond paranoid, and destined to ingrain this behavior into his children? The child has to walk with his head completely lowered, just in order to see the floor thru that surgical cap. All while MJ is walking around smiling for the cameras. Admit it, if this was a person that was not known by name, by nearly everyone, and you saw him walking around like this, treating his children like this, would you not be seriously ALARMED? He is the example of alarming. More than one person would call the police.

Hey LISA...

"and MJ dont want nobody to makey ANY profit of his kids what so ever"

"He dont do this when there no cameras around. "

"Everyone know how her kids look like"

"MICHAEL dont want this to happen his kids, and why should he let this happen?"

There were many other statments in your comment that showed you are VERY UNEDUCATED..and have a low IQ. Matter of fact you talk just like the Jackson clan...honestly...I bet you are kin to that IDIOT family or are MJ himself...there aren't too many people now a days in America that are so uneducated and have a computer...so..is this MJ? ROFLLL!

Lisa Marie Pressley even said he was a freak...she even told Barbara Walters that she thought he was gay, until he came to her with the prospect of dating her...she said he cussed alot and used the Mother_ucker word to seem "tough"..she said she was totally lied to and felt like an idiot after marrying him. She also said she never let her children be alone with him...when asked why..she never gave a reason, she just repeated the phrase.."I never left my kids alone with him". She knew something that the media didn't...they didn't get divorced..they got an annulment. She didn't even want it on paper that they were ever married. HE IS SICK..and his 2nd wife Debbie R, is sick for giving away her flesh and blood to him...it's NOT his kids, and whoever thinks that they are his children is as ignorant as they come.

Invasive media life is more likely to be damaging than masks. He is suceeding in allowing thm to be vitually unrecognisable without their masks on, so when they are without him they can try and have some kind of normal life and not be bombarded by everyone. If everyone knew what they looked like, growing up in the public eye would be terrible.
