Off the wall! Michael Jackson"s daughter Paris pulls a kooky pose
Off the wall! Paris Jackson pulls some kooky poses as she leaves drama class – or maybe she”s just getting into character

Their public outings used to involve odd disguises and scarves wrapped around their heads – but Michael Jackson”s children looked like they were loving their more normal lifestyle yesterday.
The trio were seen looking smart in their red short-sleeved school shirts as they left their drama class last night – before Paris started larking about for the cameras.
The 13-year-old started jokingly sticking out her tongue before taking pictures herself with her iPhone.

Off the scrawl: Prince had written a motivational message on his arm
With striking blue eyes, she looked healthy and tanned in her trendy white and red Converse sneakers and was wearing an identical pendant necklace to her brother Prince.
The pendant showed some kind of abstract almost flower-like pattern on it, but it”s not clear what, if anything, it signifies.
Meanwhile her elder brother, 14-year-old Prince, had scrawled a message on his arm in pen.
He had written on his left lower arm: “Live life free and without regrets, Freedom!”
Together with their long-haired brother Blanket, nine, the trio have been attending regular after-school acting classes.
Since their father died in June 2009, the Jackson family have been determined that the children live a more normal life and seem to be making a great success of their plan so far.
In February, the children gave an interview on U.S. television and said they even fancied following their late father into showbusiness.
Talking to Good Morning America, Paris said she was thinking of auditioning for a play.
Fun three: The Jackson children appear to have a healthy sense of humour
Prince however was a bit more vague about his career aspirations, saying simply: “Continue what our dad was doing.”
The children are cared for by the Jackson clan matriarch Katherine, 80, who is trying to ensure they have a normal life as possible – meaning going to school and after-school clubs for the first time.
Their aunt La Toya, 54, is also playing a large part in their upbringing and said that they were thriving in their life now.
She said of her nephews and niece in March: ‘They have gone to school and they really like it, so I’m very happy for them. It’s taught them something totally different about people and life. They’re just enjoying themselves.’
