Paris Jackson’s Touching Twitter Tribute to Her Dad, Michael Jackson


Paris Jackson keeps impressing and being a mensch even with crazy tabloid stories of her impending “wedding” or “pregnancy.” How she stays sane is a miracle.

Yesterday the 17 year posted two Tweets on the 6th anniversary of the death of her dad, Michael Jackson. The Tweets were read to me by one of her followers. One read: “this is the day I lost you. I know you’re in a better place now but I miss you so much. I just want you to know I love you so much”

the other read: “I still remember that goodbye hug he gave me before he left for rehearsal”

Michael Jackson did something right with his three kids. Everyone made fun of him for putting them in masks, etc. But the kids are all right. Prince is going to college in the fall, Blanket has changed his name to “Biji.” This is Paris’s last year of high school– she’s a musician and an artist and very stylish. She’s going to do fine.
