Paris Jackson

I Got Spirit

... FREE SPIRIT!

breaking news

0306_paris_jackson_cheerleader_splash_v2One minute she's a football player ... the next, Paris Jackson is pom-pomming her face off on her prep school's cheerleading squad ... another sign MJ's daughter is as free a spirit as he was.

Paris -- sporting a short new 'do -- hit the hardwood and rooted on the Buckley School basketball team in L.A. yesterday ... while hamming it up for the cameras.

It's just the latest predictably unpredictable move for the 14-year-old ... who was just playing for the school's flag football team in 2011 -- she's kinda like "Icebox" from "Little Giants" ... only WAYY more bad ass.

Besides the sports, Jackson is also an aspiring actress ... political activist ... model ... and Bieber-enthusiast.

Funny, Michael spent so much time trying to keep his children out of the spotlight ... but now, it seems she's reveling in it.

If this wasn't allegedly m.j.'s kid no one would give a shi* and maybe it would be better for her if we did.

How does being a cheerleader at your own high school make you a person who revels in the limelight....seriously? You complain that kids who grow up in the lime light should live a normal life and then when a child is living said life, you say she's reveling in the limelight? grow up America & TMZ

She's just doing what all teenagers do....only difference is all you media people keep reporting on her every move....leave her alone and let her be a kid and do stupid kid stuff. My great nieces do the same things and post crazy pictures on FB too.

Kids of celebrities should not be considered celebrities and they should not be stalked by a media outlet like TMZ. Paris Jackson is cheerleading at her school and that's news?

I still can't believe that a black man will produce a ghost looking daughter like this. Can anyone explain the science behind this?

Paris is really good as a Cheerleader, and she doesn't look like that same little girl that spoke at her Dad's funeral service in 2009 at all.

With the raven black hair and dark eyeliner against her pale skin, Paris has captured the look that Michael Jackson achieved through years of bleaching, makeup, and black, lace-front wigs. Although she is awkward and self-conscious in a refreshingly normal way in the clip, Paris does not come across as emotionally stable in her social media posts and antics. Living with Michael Jackson who was paranoid half the time and strung out the rest and, after his death, with Katherine Jackson who is still reeling from Michael's death, are to blame in part; Debbie Rowe's genes, the rest. It will be interesting to watch her grow up in the limelight she will soon regret having courted. She will be exhausted before she's 30.
