Paris Jackson,13, has secured a role in the upcoming fantasy film Lundon’s Bridge and the Three Keys. Although happy for her niece, Janet Jackson recently told talk show host Jay Leno that she’d prefer Paris to wait until she is an adult before working in the entertainment industry. Janet states, “I’d prefer for her to wait, I think she should enjoy her youth.”
Janet began her career at the tender age of 7-years-old when she appeared with her siblings at a Las Vegas show but she wants her niece to enjoy childhood because it’s a once in a lifetime experience. Jackson explains, “You’re only young once and [I want her] to really have a wonderful time and enjoy it. She has the rest of her life to be an adult and she should study. She should go to school and study the craft and think about college and maybe study abroad, acting, and then when she becomes 18 she could dive into it if she wants.”
