Joe Jackson Posts Bizarre Video Message to Blanket Jackson

It's been a tumultuous few weeks in the life of Blanket Jackson.

The youngest son of Michael Jackson lost his primary guardian when his grandmother, Katherine Jackson, declared that she was physically unable to continue caring for him.

Fortunately, the situation was resolved quickly, and Blanket is currently under the care of his uncle T.J. Jackson.

But fans and loved ones remain concerned for the 15-year-old whose young life has sadly been characterized by tragedy and instability.

One of the concerned parties is Blanket's controversial grandfather, Joe Jackson.

Joe typically keeps a low profile these days, but he emerged on Twitter last night to post a photo of Blanket, as well as a video message for his grandson.

“Hello, Blanket! This is Joe Jackson,” the 89-year-old says in the clip below.

“Your health is… I don’t know what. You’re like your father. Now I understand why your father had you wear masks all the time ’cause news people was bothering him so much."

Jackson adds:

"I want you to stay healthy and stay off those bikes. Don’t ride, now. But anyway, tell your brothers I said hello and stay clean and healthy."

That portion of the video left some fans confused, as it was Prince Jackson who suffered a motorcycle accident last week, and his Blanket has only one brother and one sister, Paris Jackson.

Obviously, Joe can be forgiven for being a bit disoriented as he approaches the age of 90.

But while Jackson doesn't seem to be particularly worried in the clip, his remarks about Blanket's health have prompted concern amongst fans.

Watch Joe's video message below:

Cate Blanchett’s Message to Hollywood’s Harvey Weinsteins, ‘We Don’t Want to F*** You’

Cate Blanchett took a not-so-subtle jab at Harvey Weinstein and other sexual harassers by pointing out women who wear sexy clothes don’t necessarily want to have sex — but in much fewer words. Cate was speaking at the InStyle Awards Monday night in…

Rain Brown Praised for Equality Message!

You may not think of Alaskan Bush People as the best platform for progressive ideals, but you should remember that the Brown family is made up of real people with a lot more depth than could ever fit into a reality series.

The family’s youngest, Rain Brown, uses social media for a lot more than just delivering updates on her mom’s health and speaking about her battle with depression.

She also uses it to promote wonderful messages about making the world a better place. And she’s getting some well-deserved praise (and undeserved hate) for it.

Before posting her own miniature essay on equality in the captions, Rain posted an existing image that reads:

“I am a nasty woman because I believe in love, acceptance, equality, kindness, respect, and the power of my voice.”

Though Rain doesn’t say so herself, this quote was inspired by Ashley Judd who, at the Women’s March, recited a poem by 19-year-old Nina Donovan.

And, obviously, the “nasty woman” line was inspired by what Trump so infamously said about Hillary Clinton at the debates.

Instead of giving background on the quote contained within the image that she posted, Rain wrote in her own words about the importance of equality and what it means to her.

“Equality is SO important.”

A simple statement on its own, but very true.

“No one it’s better no matter their sexuality, skin color, or gender.”

Also true.

“We are all people, it’s so sad to me that we are living in 2017 and STILL we are not all treated equal, if you’re different, good!”

She’s such a sweet person. We have to wonder what brought on this topic, right?

She had previously improvised a song in which she joked about being better than the listener, but this was just her hitting back at trolls who fill her Instagram comments.

So … what prompted Rain to talk about equality?

We’re not sure, exactly.

But Rain does talk about how the issue of equality impacts her, personally.

“You actually had the power and strength to stand up for something, and something that is NEVER discussed in media is age equality.”

To be clear, she’s not equating ageism (which can impact the young and old, if in different ways) with slavery or anti-LGBT bigotry or anything like that.

But it’s a topic that, she’s right, doesn’t get talked about enough.

“Just because I’m 14 doesn’t make me less of a person then a 60 year old our time spent on this earth or how we spend it shouldn’t change the way people treat you.”

Rain Brown may be referring to her recently revealed battle with depression, which she says was dismissed off-handedly because of her youth.

(When, in fact, adolescents are more vulnerable to depression than most other groups; with symptoms exacerbated by hormones, a depressed teenager should get the counseling and medication that they need)

But Rain is not trying to make the message of equality all about her, of course. She’s just talking about how it relates to her, personally.

“For everyone out there that is sad or been bullied or lied to it happens to literally everyone.”

Unfortunately, that is true.

“So just don’t return the favor, basically what I’m getting to is, all my life I’ve wanted to change something and so many people tell me I can’t, but I already have, even if no one agrees with me I still made them think.”

She’s right — don’t get mistreated and then turn around and do it to someone else.

And it sounds like people don’t listen to her enough. Perhaps, because she’s the youngest, people can’t help but see her as a baby. But she’s not anymore.

“And I’m not about to let anyone make me give up on my dream, my mission is to spread love and light on this dark world, join me be strong and fierce but kind and compassionate to your neighbors, life is all about balance.”

So she’s not listening to trolls. Good.

Commenters were quick to praise the young Alaskan Bush People star for her stance.

“I liked you before this. Now I freaking love you Rainy!!!! Equality, respect, kindness, and acceptance are paramount in this world.”

Very well said!

“Your response is exactly what I would expect from a young women raised by an amazing mom. Thumbs up! I can only hope my 13 year old daughter learns your family values.”

Awww, a shout-out to Ami Brown while praising Rain! Cute.

“You are such an outstanding person.”

And there were many more positive comments.

There were, of course, some negative comments. Even though Rain is 14 and shared a positive message, some people just want to get into arguments.

“Equality, acceptance, all good, but Romans chapter 1, God says diffrent.”

We’re not going to get into an academic debate about Biblical passages, but … well, we’re pretty sure that Romans is attributed to Paul.

(Honestly, that’s beside the point, because adults have no business going into the comments of a 14-year-old’s post and starting theological arguments or arguments of any other kind. She’s a kid; be nice or get out)

“There is no such thing as equality. We are all different. Although well meaning ‘equality’ creates division. Males and females have different abilities on average and different races have different attributes. We must accept our differences and move on to be happy.”

So that one’s, like, straight-up racist, among other things. (The “different races have different attributes” line is fine if you’re talking about, like, elves or orcs … not real-life people)

“My advice is to listen to wise advice. ‘A Nasty woman’, is a nasty term from nasty feminists. I’ve always admired your mom for being a sweet lady, with so much faith, not a nasty woman.”

That last hateful comment is best read in Gollum’s voice.

We hope that Rain can set aside the hate, though.

Kylie Jenner Has a Message for Her “Baby”

For the very first time since news broke of her pregnancy, Kylie Jenner has acknowledged the life growing inside of her baby.

We think, at least.

The 20-year old jumped on a pair of social accounts yesterday in order to interact with fans, initially posting a self-portrait without any makeup on her face:

“Friday the 13th,” Jenner simply wrote as a caption to this snapshot, making a reference to the superstitious date.

Later, however, Kylie truly captured the attention of the Internet when she recorded a video on Snapchat and wrote the following along with it:

“Nothing’s gonna hurt you baby.”

Oh, yes: BABY!

Kylie appears to have finally confirmed she’s expecting a child with Travis Scott.

Prior to this picture and its affiliated words, Kylie has kept very quiet about her pregnancy.

If anything, she’s gone out of her way to avoid the topic, sharing Instagram photos of herself in overgrown, long-sleeved shirts that hide her baby bump.

As pretty much anyone with an Internet connection knows, this is the exact opposite type of photo than the ones for which Jenner has compiled an enormous viral following.

Why might Kylie be hesitating to officially confirm she’s expecting? We can think of a few possibilities:

1. She’s waiting to strike a deal with some supermarket tabloid so she can rake in millions while turning this pregnancy into a cover story.

2. She’s ashamed because she didn’t mean to get pregnant and she knows her relationship with Scott won’t last.

3. She doesn’t want to overshadow Khloe Kardashian, who is ALSO pregnant and allegedly due around the same time as her half-sister.

Which of these options sound most realistic to you?

Truth be told written, no one in the Kardashian-Jenner clan has said a word yet about either Khloe or Kylie’s pregnancy.

But you just know Kris Jenner is cooking up some way to announce this double pregnancy news, right?

Some way that will bring in as much money as possible.

(It’s actually triple pregnancy news because a surrogate will give birth to Kim Kardashian’s third baby in early 2018 as well. Crazy, right?!?)

Regarding Kylie, a source recently said the following to Radar Online:

“She talked a good game about wanting to have a baby, but now that it’s here, she’s all shades of freaked out…

“Kylie knows a lot of people don’t think she’s mom material, and she’s been devastated by all the online criticism.

“She’s struggling to stay positive, is very light on sleep, and feels everyone is out to get her.”

We’re sorry to hear that.

But forgot all of us, Kylie.

In just a few months, only one person will matter: your child.
