Michael Jackson’s kids to voice cartoon characters

Paris Jackson Michael Jackson's kids are to voice characters in an Asian children's cartoon. Prince, 15, Paris, 14, and Blanket, 10, are looking to follow in their late father's footsteps into showbusiness by appearing in the TV show, and they hope the project will lead them into more "high-profile" opportunities in the industry. A source said: "They are set to do the voices for a kids' Asian cartoon hit that is being imported to the U.S. Paris doesn't share her father's singing talents but has done some acting. And if the voice over work is a success it will lead to more high-profile live action roles." Prince and Paris - who is set to make her acting debut in family movie Lundon's Bridge and the Three Keys next year - are both eager to pursue acting careers and see it as a welcome distraction from school. The insider added to The Sun: "The older pair in particular have no doubt that they want to follow their dad into showbusiness. And they find school tough. Kids can be really cruel." But Michael's sister Janet Jackson - who starred in Good Times, Diff'rent Strokes and Fame during her early years before embarking on a phenomenally successful pop career - recently said she wants Paris to wait until she is older before following her acting dream. She said: "I'd prefer for her to wait, I think she should enjoy her youth. You're only young once and to really have a wonderful time and enjoy it, she has the rest of her life to be an adult, and she should study, she should go to school and study the craft and think about college and maybe study abroad, acting, and then when she becomes 18 she could dive into it if she wants."

    janets being a bitch. leave them alone and let them do what they want. you’re not the boss of them. and while your at it, stop tring to control everyone else in your family and ditch that big ego. i am so sick of hearing about the jacksons! michael was the only talented member in that family anyway. since he died, every bit of class that family had died, too.

    I understand Janet wanting them to have a childhood..because Michael’s was sort of taken away, but that wasn’t his choice, these kids are choosing to get into the business. The crazy antics of the adults in this family are just making life harder for the 3 kids.
