... and I'll Prove It!

Michael Jackson
's only daughter wants to be a football star -- and TMZ has learned, she's joined her school's pigskin squad to prove girls CAN dominate on the gridiron.

Sure, it's only flag football ... but 13-year-old Paris Jackson has become the VERY FIRST female in the history of her exclusive L.A. private school to join the team. Pretty bad ass.

Her father would be proud ... don't forget MJ performed that LEGENDARY halftime show at Super Bowl XXVII back in 1993.

I hope she's not desperately seeking love and attention like her father or it will most likely be her downfall. I really hope she thoroughly enjoys the sport if that's all this is about. Good luck to her.

Um ... Superbowl XVII (17) was in 1983. You must mean Superbowl 27 (XXVII). Seriously, Roman numerals aren't hard. derp.

If that's what she wants to do, I say more power to her. Hope she has fun and doesn't get hurt too much.

She's the spitting image of her father ... whoever that may be.

In what world does 'legendary' equal a performance that is lip-syched the entire way through. "legendary' should be thrown out for a complete performance, not a dance show from a 'singer'

She's a beautiful girl. And badass. And seemingly intelligent and sweet.

But TMZ, this doesn't even remotely redeem you for posting a picture of her dead father last week. Sickos.
