Once Isolated, Michael Jackson's Kids Are Now on YouTube
By Nadine Cheung Posted May 12th 2010 06:20PM
Over the course of their childhood, Michael kept his children's lives private. Paris and Blanket were rarely seen in public, and on the rare occasion they were and could potentially be filmed or photographed, the singer covered their faces with masks or sheets. Now, at least seven videos show Paris, 12, and Blanket, 8, hamming it up in front of their Web cams for the entire world to see. Watch:
With his cousin, Donte Jackson, in the room, Blanket is shown acting out movie scenes and telling imaginative tales, while showing off his animated side. The bulk of the videos star Blanket, but two feature his sister Paris. One is of her simply saying, "Monkey, please help," while the other shows Paris lip synching over an Omer Bhatti rap song.
Many message board users suggest the two children released the videos themselves, but according to the account owner of the KingOfPopKids YouTube channel, which posted many of the clips of Paris and Blanket, Jackson fans were responsible for the video leak.
"Some 'fans' got into one family member account (Facebook and Photobucket) and posted them on the Web," the user told PopEater in an email interview. "I have been told the account was public and then made private."
After living their life in seclusion, Paris and Blanket have suddenly interacted with tens of thousands of people through their personal videos. Could this virtual connection be beneficial to the isolated tweens? The owner of KingOfPopKids' YouTube channel is unsure.
"No, it is not a good exposure because we do not know if they are aware of this," the user says. "But at the same time, as a fan, I like to see that they are happy, smiling and having fun with their family. That's a good feeling for us fans, because we feel so empty since Michael's death. I just think some people need to be careful with the Internet."
