0829_mj_kids_infToday is Michael Jackson's birthday ... he would have been 54 years old ... and his kids are honoring his memory with a family trip to MJ's boyhood home in Indiana.

Prince, Paris and Blanket were spotted in Gary, IN yesterday ... along with their co-guardian Katherine Jackson and their aunt La Toya. TJ Jackson -- the OTHER co-guardian -- also made the trip.

The kids are also expected to throw out the first pitch at a Gary SouthShore RailCats baseball game this week.

Happy Birthday, Michael. Let us forgive mean spirited people because they don't do the research to disprove the garbage which they have chosen to believe. Most are not college educated or they paid for research papers written by others because they were not studious enough to do it for themselves as in the case of all the allegations made against you. Just know that you are my
Bal a' V and I will always love you.

As a JW myself it hurts when ppl express themselves the way you do. People simply have no respect for anyone or religion these days...Jehovah’s Witnesses adhere closely to the Bible. They have not invented a new religion. They merely follow what is written in the Torah, the Psalms, and the Gospel, which is the foundation of true religion. We love God, so we avoid things that God hates. These principles govern the lives of Jehovah’s Witnesses. Since most humans do not know God, he has commanded faithful humans to witness about him. To such faithful ones he says: “You are my witnesses.” (Isaiah 43:10) About the work we accomplish, he says: “This good news of the kingdom will be preached in all the inhabited earth for a witness to all the nations.”—Matthew 24:14. While we may not celebrate pagan holidays, we love to have parties, exchange gifts for no reason, we love to eat and yes, we even drink. We are normal people.

Happy b-day Michael. Wish you were here to tell Paris to put some pants on. And there are plenty of boys with long hair. If Blanket cuts his hair so should Maxx*. As for nicknames I'm 35 and my dad still calls me by mine. Although his is waaay better than mine. Odd to hear someone yell Monkey in a store and yes that is my nickname and nothing racist in disguise. Was a hairy baby. :(

It's funny that MJ fans still believe these kids are biologically related to Michael. Noway in hell! Arnie Klein basically said they were his and Prince is very much Arnie Jr and then Debbie Jr. Poor Blanket don't know where he came from.

I also find it hilarious that so many men on TMZ dedicate their accounts to hating on Michael and calling him a pedophile when they most likely are pedophiles themselves. Kinda like the Republicans who hate gays but are gay themselves. Those who protest the loudest usually have the most to hide.

I don't get how all of you keep syaing Blanket needs a new name, HIS NAME IS NOT BLANKET! well his legal name isn't it's actually either Prince Michael II or Michael itself and he may be a junior. His family (Michael himself) and the media have official stuck him with the name of blanket, but his name is not blanket it's Prince. it's too much to say Prince both times so everyone just sticks to blanket.
