Chris Brown just can't stop putting his feet in his mouth. Recently, Mr. Breezy, AKA the Felon, approached Michael Jackson's daughter, Paris with an offer to star in his new music video. Needless to say, Paris' grandmother, who is now her legal guardian, was not amused.
If anything can be said for CB, it's that he definitely has chutzpah. And he displayed it recently when he reportedly contacted the 13-year-old daughter of his idol Michael Jackson with an offer that he thought she might actually accept. He wanted her to appear in his next music video. Goodness. Looks like that Grammy win really went to someone's head.
Of course, in all fairness to Mr. Breezy, thinking that Paris Jackson might want to appear in his music video wasn't completely crazy. After all, Paris is about to make her screen dÃ©but in Lundon's Bridge and the Three KeysÂ—a "fantasy adventure/ family" film. Furthermore, the young Miss Jackson is known to be "a HUGE fan of the girl-bashing rapper" and rumor has it that she was thrilled by his offer. Unfortunately for CB, "thrilled" doesn't begin to describe Katherine Jackson's reaction. The Jackson family matriarch reportedly went "ballistic, and barked: No!" And that, as the clichÃ© goes, was that.
And who could blame her?
"She doesn't feel that Brown, who was convicted of felony assault for his attack on Rihanna, is a good influence," explains a Jackson insider. "She allows her granddaughter to be a fan, and lets her attend his concerts, but she draws the line at Paris working side by side with him."
So, there you have it. Katherine Jackson has some nerve forbidding her granddaughter to work with a woman-beating, chair-throwing, phone-stealing, seagull-chasing lunaticÂ—erÂ—Grammy winner. What was she thinking?
Just kidding. You go, Mrs. Jackson.
As for Chris Brown, better luck next time.
