However, truth of the matter is that Prince and Paris are Michael Jackson’s beloved children, and be it for that reason only, they are already superstars of sorts. Again, we don’t know what is going on backstage. We don’t know how well and by whom they are being accompanied through this entire ordeal. But it seems rather obvious to me that the only way to make sure they don’t grow up severely burdened by their father’s identity is to make sure that they grasp what that identity was and to learn to deal with the ensuing insanity. And going into the limelight, surrounded by their family and close friends (as they were last night) could be the very experience that they need to learn to deal with their unique position.
Who are we to judge how these children are being educated, when we, as crazed fans, created the situation in which they lost their father in the first place?
What would I have liked to see? First off, Michael’s introduction was perfect. The movie should have been shown in normal HD. The five performers, each of them with amazing vocal talent, should have sung the entire song. A choir would have made the ending more powerful. No marketing by Lionel Ritchie or anyone else.
