Prince Michael Jackson Rushed to Hospital Following Motorcycle Accident

Prince Michael Jackson, the 20-year-old son of late music legend Michael Jackson, has been rushed to a Los Angeles hospital following a motorcycle accident, TMZ reports.

Currently, there’s no word on what caused the accident or who called the ambulance that hurried Prince to Cedars-Sinai.

Fortunately, Michael’s oldest son was tremendously lucky and suffered no major injuries in the crash.

In fact, he was in such sound condition that he was able to head straight to his next class at Loyola Marymount University after leaving the hospital.

Prince even joked about the crash on social media while he was still in the ambulance.

He posted the below photo of himself on a gurney, with a caption reading: 

“Well sh-t…”

No word yet on if and when Prince intends to get back on the bike.

Fortunately, these days things appear to be pretty stable in the Jackson family for the first time … ever?

After several years of bouncing around between caretakers, 15-year-old Blanket Jackson has a new guardian in uncle T.J. Jackson.

Meanwhile, Paris Jackson is still promoting body positivity and generally being a good role model for her young fan base.

All in all, it looks as though these kids are finally enjoying some firm footing after incredibly tumultuous childhoods.

Last we checked in on Prince, he was spearheading an initiative to find housing for you people who have aged out of foster care and at risk of becoming homeless.

“We have partnered with a charity called ‘A Sense of Home,’ which supports foster kids who have aged out of the system in a sort of preempt against homelessness because it’s very hard to get on your feet once you’ve gotten out of the system,” Prince told Robin Roberts in a rare TV interview earlier this year.

“As we were growing up my dad always said, ‘I really don’t care what you do in life, as long as you’re happy doing it and you’re the best at what you do. If you want to be a janitor at a high school, you should be the best janitor that you can be,'” he added.

Sounds like the kid’s got a good head on his shoulders.

He just might want to give the bike a break for a while.

Kourtney Kardashian Dresses Like Michael Jackson, Earns Internet Ire

The Kardashians are apparently intent on raising the dead this year for Halloween.

We mean this almost literally.

Earlier this week, we shared a couple photos of Kim Kardashian dressed as Aaliyah, a beloved R&B singer who died in a plane crash back in 2001.

Kardashian was dragged pretty hard online for this Halloween costume, considering the tragic way Aaliyah died and the fact that Aaliyah was African-American.

Kim, of course, is not.

Hence, the charge of cultural appropriation.

Now, Kim has posted a picture of herself dressed as Madonna, which is random but not offensive. The Internet doesn’t seem to care much about this ensemble.

The same, though, cannot be said for her sister’s costume.

As you can see above and below, Kourtney Kardashian went out for a night on the town dressed up like Michael Jackson, circa 1991.

Does Kourtney pull off the look pretty well? Yes.

But is this a wildly inappropriate costume? Twitter appears to be divided.

According to some critics, Kourtney is also guilty of cultural appropriation because she isn’t African-American like Jackson was and because she isn’t honoring his culture here…

… she’s just exploiting it for the sake of a few laughs.

To other critics, it’s simply sacrilegious that someone such as Kourtney Kardashian would even pretend to be Michael Jackson.

We’re talking about the most famous and popular solo artist all time and then we’re talking about… Kourtney Kardashian.

“omg,” wrote one Twitter user. “Michael must b turning over in his grave at the thought of this costume.”

Adds another hater of the outfit:

“Michael Jackson was a music legend and a father who died in tragic fashion. This is an insult to his memory.”

This isn’t the first time a member of the Kardashian family or Jenner family has gotten in trouble for trying to take advantage of a dead musician.

Kendall Jenner and Kylie Jenner were roasted online earlier this year when they sold T-shirts that featured their likeness superimposed over photos of iconic stars such as Tupac Shakur.

It was one of the silliest things any celebrities has ever done, to be honest.

Does Kourtney deserve to receive criticism for this MJ ensemble?

What about Kim’s admitted theme of “musical legends” for her many Halloween costumes this year?

Is the Internet making much ado over very little? Or should the Kardashians treat these musicians with more respect?
