Paris Jackson Shares Rare Childhood Home Video to Celebrate Big Brother Prince's Birthday

Paris Jackson is taking a trip down memory lane — and giving fans a rare glimpse into her super private childhood.

The 19-year-old daughter of late pop icon Michael Jackson shared a home movie featuring her younger self goofing around with older brother Prince in honor of his 21st birthday, on Tuesday. The footage featured the siblings playfully fighting for camera time while someone filmed and encouraged them, “Let me see you dance.” Prince busted out a few dance moves before Paris got a close-up and made a funny face.

“My dearest brother. i could fly to the moon and back a thousand times and the distance still wouldn’t amount to how much i adore you,” Paris captioned the video post on Instagram. “I’ve always looked up to you, and to this day you’re still the greatest role model i could ever hope for. i miss these days where we could wrestle and i’d still have a chance at winning, though. i miss playing hot wheels and my little pony with you, i miss fighting like pirates and trying to cast spells with our harry potter wands.

“i miss the Saturdays where we would sleep in and eat porridge and OJ and watch gargoyles and  (and sometimes cartoons in arabic?), and staying up late listening to you tell us wild bed time stories that always had a crazy twist at the end.”

She continued, “You’ve always been my best friend in the whole wide universe and i’m so lucky to have you in my life. i couldn’t have wished for our friendship to turn out any better. we may not have our water guns and crash bandicoot, but we have so much more. you’re the most fun, genuine, determined and hilarious person i know. and it makes ma soul happy to know dat i can always count on you, and no matter where we are in the world and in life, my home is with you and the little guy. i love you so much, gooko. i’m so proud of you. happy birthday.”

In an interview with the Today show in October, Prince gushed about his bond with Paris and 15-year-old brother Blanket Jackson, who now goes by B.G. or Bigi. “Me and my siblings get along really well — especially my sister,” Prince told Today‘s Natalie Morales. “She’s grown so much and she’s been able to really step up. I don’t really see myself as her older brother. We’re equal partners when it comes down to it. B.G. is just so mature for his age. It’s a pretty strong bond.”

The three collaborated over Halloween to design mazes and a haunted house for the second annual Costume for a Cause event. “It’s something that’s bred into us, to really give back to the community,” Prince explained. “My dad always taught me to lead by example, so I hope I can set a good example that you can have fun by helping other people and you can make a change just by doing that.”

“I think he would definitely be proud of the type of work that we’re doing and giving back to the community,” added Prince, who started his own charitable foundation dedicated to helping foster children who have aged out of the system called Heal Los Angeles.

Why Arsenal didn’t sign Liverpool’s Van Dijk – Thierry Henry (Video)

Arsenal after the Tottenham defeat

Will Arsenal be in the Champions League next season?

After Saturday’s 1-0 defeat to Tottenham in the north London derby at Wembley, it’s beginning look incredibly unlikely that the Gunners will finish in the top four.

Tottenham’s win means that Arsene Wenger is seven points behind Mauricio Pochettino in the table with 11 games to go.

Many will now believe Arsenal’s best chance of playing UCL football next term will be in Arsenal can win the Europa League.

The Gunners head to Sweden this week to face minnows FK Ostersunds in the last 32 of the UEL.

Why Arsenal didn’t sign Liverpool’s Van Dijk

On Monday Night Football on Sky Sports, Jamie Carragher and Thierry Henry tried to understand why the Arsenal defence is so bad.

The pundits recognised that Wenger has failed to significantly improve Arsenal’s backline in recent years.

It seems clear to everyone that new blood and quality is needed to solidify the Arsenal rearguard. Yet, when a player like Virgil Van Dijk came on the market, it was Liverpool who stumped up the cash.

Did Arsenal make a mistake allowing VVD to join Liverpool?

And what are fans to make of Wenger’s claim that Jonny Evans wasn’t signed because West Brom wanted too much money. Yet there was money to break their transfer record on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

For Carragher and Henry, Wenger’s failure to sign Van Dijk was a mistake.

Both talking heads believe it’s obvious that Arsenal have defensive problems, and they wondered if Wenger is blinkered from the truth.

Watch the discussion below.

Video: Demetri Mitchell sends bold message to Jose Mourinho

Demetri Mitchell‘s superb start to life on loan at Hearts continued on Sunday with a sublime finish to compliment his third ‘Man of the Match’ performance in under a month.

The youngster was handed his senior debut for Manchester United back in May against Crystal Palace and impressed with a diligent, energetic display at left-back.

He joined Hearts on loan over the January transfer window and has looked right at home from the start, claiming three ‘Man of the Match’ performances in just five outings.

And he capped off a swift counter-attacking move against St Johnstone with a scintillating strike to claim his first goal for the fifth placed Scottish Premiership side.

Most of the noise following that 2-0 win over Palace surrounded Josh Harrop, who claimed a superb goal on his first and only senior appearance for United, but the real star of the show that day was Mitchell.

He performed fearlessly and seemed to relish the challenge, bursting across the surface in a kind of calculated, ineffaceable frenzy that led to many suggesting he would factor in Jose Mourinho’s plans for the 2017/18 campaign.

But his decision to join Hearts following an impressive first half of the campaign under Ricky Spragia – during which he didn’t miss a single game – is proving to be the right one. And while Mourinho goes searching for reinforcements at left-back over the summer, one part of the solution could be sitting right under his nose.

Anti-Muslim commentator shares fake video to prove immigrants are dangerous

Noted anti-Muslim commentator and activist Pamela Geller included a video in the February 11 edition of her newsletter, intended to prove that immigrants posed a dangerous threat. Unfortunately, the video appears to be a hoax.

The video, titled “Immigrants in Italy,” depicts a group of people battering an Italian police car with bats and sticks while others cheer on.

By including the video in her newsletter, Gellar, who has claimed that President Obama is radical Muslim who “wants jihad to win” and has ties to white supremacists and European right-wing extremist factions, was likely attempting to capitalize off of anti-immigrant fear in Italy just weeks before the country’s general election where immigration is anticipated to be a hot button issue.

As noted by Media Matters for America, the video is in actuality an amateur recording of the shooting of an Italian film called Mediterranea. The film focuses on two friends from Burkina Faso who “experience hostility after immigrating to Italy.” The video clearly shows the film’s camera crew and production crew can be seen walking into the scene at the end of the clip, prompting the actors to stop.

The video has been debunked repeatedly by ItalianFrench, and German language websites since 2014.

Geller is described by the Southern Poverty Law Center as “the anti-Muslim movement’s most visible and flamboyant figurehead.” She has described Obama as a “third worlder and a coward” who will “do nothing but beat up on our friends to appease his Islamic overlords,” in addition to spreading a conspiracy that he is the love child of Malcolm X.

Last week, Geller appeared on a Florida radio show and called ProPublica’s latest initiative to help document hate crimes “child’s play” when compared to state-run media.

“So if you’re a Muslim and some non-Muslim looked at you funny, just report it to any one of these groups of news organizations and it too will count as a hate crime,” Geller said. “This is nefarious. This makes Soviet Pravda and state-run media look like child’s play.”

Geller’s most recent anti-immigrant smear attempt comes just ahead of Italy’s March 4 elections, which have so far been plagued with white nationalist sentiment. As ThinkProgress previously reported, former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, the scandal-plagued Italian media tycoon who was convicted of tax fraud in 2012, has already pledged to deport 600,000 refugees from Italy, should his allies in the far-right Northern League and Brothers of Italy win a seat in the government. Berlusconi himself is barred from running for office again because of his conviction.

“Immigration has become an urgent question, because after years with a leftwing government, there are 600,000 migrants who don’t have the right to stay,” he said in a TV interview earlier in February. “We consider it to be an absolute priority to regain control over the situation.”
