Nearly three years after his death, Michael Jackson’s daughter Paris Jackson sits down with Oprah Winfrey on her show, Oprah’s Next Chapter, and opens up about the pain of losing her father.
In case you missed the probably the most widely publicized celebrity death and ensuing trial in the history of modern entertainment, Jackson died in 2009 of a drug overdose of Propofol that was administered by (distracted? malleable?) physician, Conrad Murray.
Paris, a 14-year-old aspiring actress confesses that, “It never gets any easier." Not that we would assume it would. She’s always going to be stalked by the press as the daughter of an extremely eccentric superstar. So if she were able to forget who she is for 30 seconds, some stranger will surely pop up to remind her.
Though IMDB seems to have missed the memo, Oprah has the inside tip, Paris can be seen acting in the forthcoming Lundon's Bridge and the Three Keys, a fantasy that’s both live action and animated that takes place on land and under the sea. Still not completely cast, some of the talent said to have already signed on is Joey Fatone, and Larry King (?).
Then in a complete and possibly inappropriate tonal shift, after speaking with Paris, the next chapter of the show will feature 50 Cent (who coincidentally also shares the last name of Jackson, but don’t worry, you haven’t missed something, there’s no relation). The two attempt to bury some years old alleged Oprah vs. Hip-Hop feud that resulted in 50 naming his dog Oprah, whom he claims to now love very much (the dog that is).
For the line-up that’s sure to run quite the gamut of emotions, tune in this Sunday on OWN (you know, the very characteristically modest acronym for Oprah Winfrey’s Network – you’ve heard of her, right?)
