Dear Media, STOP Interviewing Michael Jackson’s Kids
I know there’s an insane interest in what Michael Jackson’s life was like behind closed doors, especially regarding his children. I also know that it’s very difficult to turn down an interview that will likely generate ratings. That being said, there’s still an underlying moral code that should be executed by the media, and there’s a definitive line in the sand when it comes to Michael Jackson’s children. First, while Jackson was alive, he was adamant about shielding his kinds from the media. He made his wishes clear, and it wasn’t until his death that we heard any of them even speak. Now, every media outlet wants an interview, including Oprah who apparently didn’t get the moral memo. Until they’re eighteen, I don’t want to hear from them.
