Jamie Foster Brown, of Sister 2 Sister magazine, spent some time with Michael Jackson and his young brood in Japan last month and reports that she found the family to be a happy, functioning unit. The three children, Prince Michael, 10, Paris, 9, and Prince Michael II (AKA Blanket), 5, who were allowed to show their faces while indoors, left a positive impression on Brown.
“They were walking around me, and we were taking pictures without [their veils] – they were very loose. But when they did go outside, they put the scarves around the children’s faces.
“I just noticed also how nice the kids were. They’re not privileged at all. They have a lot of fun with [Michael]. They’re intelligent, extremely well-spoken, and they like to play jokes.”
I totally forgot that there are two children of his named Prince Michael, one of whom has the alias of “Blanket,” which is still just too weird for me to get past. Oh yes, that and the whole child molestation thing. And the years of general crazy.
