Michael Jackson Kith and Kin watches the Unity Tour

The pop icon Michael Jackson’s children, Prince Michael aged – 15, Paris aged – 14 and ten years old Prince Michael – II went to see the concert of Jackson Brothers  aptly title – “Unity Tour” in Saratoga, California. In spite of the dispute over the custody of the Michael Jackson’s kids between the Jackson family, matriarch Katherine Jackson and the kids of Michael Jackson there seemed unity among the family members of Michael Jackson.  The grand mother of Michael Jackson has temporarily lost the custody of the kids last week following her mysterious holiday to Arizona.

Katherine Jackson received a standing ovation from the crowd when she was spotted entering the concert. Jermaine Jackson announced at the concert that the Jackson family is one and united and they are one family and will heal soon. The children were saddened over their grand mother – Katherine Jackson reported to be missing over for a number of days and they had not spoken to her all these missing days. The kids were then put under the guardianship of Michael’s nephew TJ who is the son of Tito Jackson in the absence of Katherine.

During the Jacksons’s time in Arizona, Katherine reportedly had no communication with her grandchildren.  But, later on she claimed that she had taken the break voluntarily and therefore had cut off all her contacts.  But now it seems that the story has more twists and turns as on Friday, Katherine’s attorney Perry Sanders said in a statement to ABC News that the 82 year old- venerated old woman and her grand son TJ will file a petition at the beginning of this week asking the court to reinstate Katherine as the guardian and appoint TJ as co-guardian of Michael Jackson’s kids.

Tom Cruise & Katie Holmes reaches an amicable divorce settlement

The highly publicized divorce settlement of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes has been settled on Monday taking less than two weeks that ended the six year marriage of the star studded couple. Speculations doing rounds about the custody of their six years old daughter – Suri- reached a feverish pitch over the weekend but then the estranged couple rested the rumors by announcing about their amicable divorce settlement.

Reports emerge that Katie Holmes will have the sole custody of Suri and Tom will get substantial time to spend with his daughter. The divorce agreement also includes the details on how Tom and Katie are allowed to tell Suri regarding religion including Scientology. However, Suri will not be expected to attend a Scientology school, like Cruise’s adopted children Isabella – aged 19 and Conor- aged 17 did.

The couple along with their daughter has become a favorite idol of celebrity magazines and everything seemed going on a right track when Holmes filed for divorce in New York. Her move surprised the fans and even Tom Cruise who at that time was in Iceland shooting for a movie. There were speculations in the media that the couple had differences about raising their six years old daughter –Suri as a Scientologist but neither they nor their attorneys commented on that matter.

Tom Cruise married Katie Holmes in a glamorous wedding in an Italian castle in the month of November-2006 and their daughter – Suri was born about six months earlier. In the opinion of family law attorneys it is quite surprising that this divorce case has been settled in a speedy manner. In their view the present case has so many moving parts that do not routinely get resolved themselves in a matter of ten days and there are definitely one or two motivated people.

The Influence of Entertainment

Today the masses are flocking to the movies and watching television and listening to musicians in order to eliminate boredom and illuminate their imagination.  The olden days are over where people looked to books or their family for guidance and self-realization.  Now, people who are searching for the meaning of life look to movie stars, television personalities, and musicians to show them what they don’t know and how to view the world properly.  Children look up to these celebrities and often imitate these fortunate entertainers (who make a bunch of money) wishing they could be just like them and basically these kids turn them into deities.

All movies have an underlying theme to them, something that they are trying to show the audience exists in everyday life and that they should leave the theatre’s being completely aware of.  It might take awhile but as soon as the climax hits them like a ton of bricks they truly understand what the director was trying to create: his or her unique perspective of human culture.

The Menace that is the Paparazzi

A single word that sends a shiver down the spine of many celebrities is the word ‘Paparazzi’. These celebrity hungry shutterbugs follow, stalk and do whatever it takes to get a photograph of a celebrity. They often take pictures in the most of comprising of positions and ones that are intimate and personal. The menace of these photographers has often spiraled out of control and has lead to many celebrities breaking down. The same people who put them on Page 3 and give them all the attention in the public eye often cross the line of decency. Over the years that line seems to have stretched a bit too far for comfort.

Britney Spears has often been the most affected celebrity and one who has been constantly targeted. Her altercations with them have often been ugly and have led to her reaching a breaking point. In a TV interview couple of years back, she broke down on national television discussing the Paparazzi menace.
