Paris Jackson

Paris Jackson

The public memorial service for Michael Jackson on Tuesday featured memorable performances from Stevie Wonder, Jennifer Hudson, Usher and others, but it was the King of Pop’s 11-year-old daughter who left the biggest impression with mourners inside of the Staples Center and the billions watching around the world.

As the star-studded tribute concluded, Jackson’s children, Prince Michael, 12, Paris Katherine, 11, and Prince Michael II (Blanket), 7, took the stage during a group performance of “Heal the World.”

After the song, Paris gave an impromptu speech from the stage surrounded by the Jackson family.

“I just want to say ever since I was born, Daddy has been the best father you can ever imagine,” she said through tears. “And I just want to say I love him so much.”

She then broke down into the arms of her aunt Janet Jackson before the entire Jackson family surrounded them. It was one of the first times any of Jackson’s children had ever been heard publicly.

Meanwhile, 12-year-old Michael Joseph Jr., known as Prince Michael; and 7-year-old Prince Michael II, known as Blanket, were also in attendance for their father’s memorial. Both wore the same dark suit and yellow tie as the rest of the men in the Jackson family, and Paris wore a black dress with white trim.

Gone were the veils, the party masks and the guarded gates and walls that kept the Jackson children hidden from view for more than a decade. Those were replaced with images of their young faces up on stage as the ceremony came to a close, comforting one another and fidgeting as kids will: Prince chewed gum and toted the memorial service program; Paris turned a small patent-leather purse over in her hands; and Blanket held his program and clutched a Michael Jackson doll.

Jermaine Jackson

Jermaine Jackson

In a touching personal tribute to Michael Jackson by his longtime friend Brooke Shields, the actress mentioned that his favorite song was “Smile,” a tune written by Charlie Chaplin for his 1936 film “Modern Times.”
“There is a line [in the song] that says, ‘Smile when your heart is aching,’ ” Shields said in her speech. “And though our hearts are aching, we need to look up, where [Michael] is undoubtedly perched in a crescent moon, and we need to smile.”

With that, Jermaine Jackson took the stage – dressed in a dark suit and wearing a single, sequined glove – and gave an emotional rendition of “Smile” through a voice that at times choked with emotion.

“That’s the time you must keep on trying/ Smile, what’s the use in crying?” he sang, stopping for a few beats to stop the tears from falling down his cheeks. “You’ll find that life is still worthwhile/ If you just smile.”

As the Staples Center gave him a standing ovation, Jackson took a petal from his boutonniere and gently flicked it onto the lid of his brother’s gold-plated casket. He then walked off the stage, into the arms of his awaiting family, while a single spotlight shone on the stage and an image of the Jackson 5 appeared on the screens.


Steve McNair

Nashville police have now confirmed what was believed all along. Ex-NFL star Steve McNair’s 20-year-old girlfriend killed him before turning the gun on herself.

They said they may never know what was going through Sahel Kazemi’s mind when she shot McNair in his condominium early Saturday, but interviews with friends led detectives to conclude she was becoming increasingly distraught over events in her life, including financial problems. Police said she also suspected McNair was seeing another woman.

Police earlier had labeled McNair’s death a homicide, but awaited further tests and investigation before saying for sure what happened.

At one point, Kazemi told an associate that her “personal life was all screwed up,” Police Chief Ronal Serpas said.

She had mounting debts and had been unable to sell her car. Her roommate was moving, which would have doubled her rent.

“We do know that she was clearly sending a message during the last five to seven days of her life that things were going bad quickly,” Serpas said, though there was no indication she told anyone she planned to harm McNair.
