Joining the list of Barbara Walters’ so-called 10 Most Fascinating People of 2009 are Prince Michael, Paris, and Blanket Jackson, the three (most legitimate) children of the late King of Pop, it was announced today. So far, the list includes Sarah Palin, Kate Gosselin and 6 others … add 3 more and you get 11, not 10. Did anyone check Babs’ math here?
Sure, the conditions of MJ’s death and the ensuing controversy over his supposed “secret children” have been pretty fascinating, but MJ’s kids? Really?
So far, most of the reports coming from the children’s entourage indicate that the kids are surprisingly normal and, thankfully, pulling through the tragedy as well as can be expected. So, if that’s “fascinating” I guess they qualify.
I think maybe Barbara’s producers just wanted to include something… anything to include Michael Jackson in the list. Actually, I’m not really sure why they didn’t just go with MJ himself, he’s the fascinating one. Right?
Apparently, Jacko’s kids are being crammed into one space on the list (maybe that’s a way to avoid the controversy over just how many kids MJ really had?). The final Most Fascinating person will be announced on December 9th.
