MJ's Kids Unveiled

As 'Normal' As Can Be

10/10/2011 11:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Breaking Michael Jackson news -- his siblings and his children are very normal ... at least according to the TMZ staffer who chilled BACKSTAGE at the MJ tribute concert. We've got a full debrief ... including which celeb dared to mention Conrad Murray.

Plus, the controversial posting of an execution in Afghanistan gets everyone fired up -- is it gratuitous violence ... or just good journalism?

Also, Al Sharpton rips Herman Cain for claiming racism isn't holding minorities back anymore -- and after Al Davis' death ... will Raider Nation ever forgive Al Michaels?

(4:25) Ryan attended the "sick" MJ tribute concert in Wales this weekend -- and got to hang out BACKSTAGE.
(5:20) Ryan says the Jackson kids were "normal" ... and yes, everyone calls Blanket "Blanket."
(12:22) Ryan's picks for best performances of the night.
(13:50) Why did Jennifer Hudson bail on the concert?
(21:30) CNN puts an EXECUTION video on the top of its site -- over the line?
(34:30) Jose Baez makes a comparison between the Casey Anthony and Amanda Knox trials. How off base was he?
(39:02) Al Davis died this weekend -- one month after Al Michaels said the Raiders wouldn't win another Super Bowl while he was alive.
(50:30) Herman Cain gets ripped by Al Shaprton -- as well as Brian, Jason and Charles -- for saying racism no longer hinders minorities in America.

I don't see how Casey Anthony's lawyer can say her parents didn't support her. Her mother lied on the stand for her. That's perjury. Short of Cindy Anthony taking the blame herself (which wouldn't have been believable) I don't know what else she could have done.

I went through the pics from the tribute concert. Out of 149 images there were only 2 of Aretha and a couple of Christine. The rest were the same 4 or 5 people over and over. What a waste of 135 images.

If Al “the liar” Sharpton admits that Racism is not the problem; he is out of business and becomes totally irrelevant, down from mostly irrelevant. Ditto for Jesse Jackson and all other race baiting shakedown artists.

Cain is correct.

If Racism is the problem then explain Rap. If Blacks are so poor they can’t afford food, as Sharpton says, then they can’t buy enough Rap albums to make all those BLACK artists rich. Duh.
