Gladys on Jackson Family Drama: “[Paris] Wouldn’t Have Any Teeth”

Gladys Knight offered the ultimate wisdom in the Jackson family drama.

The singing legend appeared in CBS’s The Talk when the discussion turned to the tiff between Janet Jackson and niece Paris Jackson, daughter of Michael Jackson, who’d been tweeting family business.

Reportedly Janet slapped the 14-year-old, calling her a “spoiled little b****.” Paris responding by slapping her back and saying, “This is our house. Not the Jackson family house. Get the f*** out!”

Gladys , remembering the ways of the archetypal “big momma,” had this to say about the struggle: “It’s drama, that’s what it is. If you lived up under the microscope as this family does, everybody has dysfunctionality in their families, either one way or the other. See, I’m from the south and [we] was raised in that southern way. You have to understand Paris is what, 14? How old is Janet? Who’s the one who tries to direct the other one here? And I would think that it’s a good thing, she let’s Paris know who she is. She is a Jackson, she shouldn’t be putting the business out there like that. Cause people read into whatever they want to read into, that’s how they get the drama. So, she’s just trying to protect her, in a way. But if she [Paris] called me that, she wouldn’t have any teeth…You respect your elders.”

And Gladys ain’t lying. Many a Black adult-who-used-to-be-children know just what she was talking about… And apparently so did Janet (via poppa Joe Jackson). Only, in the age of social media, a possible tweet about a mere a** whooping could turn ugly fast… the way it has already done for the Jacksons.  However, Paris Jackson denied the slap ever happened.

I dont locate the mount essentially the most appealing. What lures me into this the most is getting Diablo 3 for free + a being sure for getting into the MoP beta. Now I’m able to finally play and try out this expansion myself, as a substitute of having to follow up on Jesse Cox’s beta videos as I had to do in Cata. yaaay!!

Hi Mitch I’d be interested to hear what you think of Pinterest. I know some photographers are not so happy about it for copyright reasons. Is it much different than Flickr? (I haven’t used that much.)
