Paris Jackson Is No ‘Belieber’

By: Cliff Renfrew / April 17, 2013

Paris Jackson raised more than a few eyebrows in Hollywood recently when she branded Justin Bieber as “irresponsible.”

The famous 15-year-old — who actually lives near the teen sensation in Calabasas, Calif. — may not be rushing to borrow a cup of milk anytime soon.

She openly criticized the “Beauty and the Beat” singer, claiming he had smoked marijuana and not being responsible enough when it comes to his fans — nearly 38 million of whom are on Twitter alone.

”Young girls on Twitter were cutting themselves, self-harming to get his attention to get him to stop,” she told the Mail On Sunday’s Event Magazine.

”But I don’t think Justin should do something where he would get caught, so that his young fans aren’t influenced.

”Imagine when those little girls are adults and they have kids and they ask, ‘Oh mom, where did you get those scars?’ How do they respond? When I was 12 my favorite singer smoked marijuana. I think it’s very irresponsible of him to do that!”

Bieber, 19, has had a rough few months, culminating in him allegedly spitting on his neighbor on March 26 after he raced his Ferrari around their gated community.

But Paris’ late father, Michael Jackson, also had a rollercoaster career with as much scandal as success before his untimely death on June 25, 2009 at 50-years-old.

And if you actually compare the two stars over the years, they have a lot in common: Both made headlines for their sporadic bizarre behavior, dated female celebs, experienced hysterical fan adulation… and even shared a liking for pet monkeys!

So, although Paris may not like to admit it, her iconic father and the 19-year-old pop star are more alike than she thinks.
