Paris Jackson may have landed a job performing in front of sold-out arenas just like her father, Michael Jackson. Fourteen-year-old Paris has been offered a gig as a cheerleader for the Philadelphia Eagles, according to the New York Post.
The daughter of â€śThe King of Popâ€ť recently made her debut with the cheerleading squad during basketball games for the Buckley School in Los Angeles.Â Despite only being in prep school, Eagles cheer director Barbara Zaun believes that Paris has what it takes to make it to the big leagues.
Zaun told TMZ, â€śWe think Paris will make a great Eagle cheerleader.â€ť
Although her skills are impressive, Paris will have to wait some time before she can actually audition. The minimum age for an NFL cheerleader is 18 years old. Still, Zaun has put an offer on the table for the teenager to audition when she is of age.
â€śShe is already very comfortable with the limelight,â€ť says Zaun. â€śSo we think she would definitely stand out and impress the judgesâ€¦We hope that she will try out for the team and be an Eagles cheerleader!â€ť
A career in entertainment seems inevitable for Michael Jackson’s daughter. Paris is set to make her big screen debut in â€śLundon’s Bridge and the Three Keys.â€ť Her 16-year-old brother Prince is also involved in the family business. He has landed a job as a correspondent for â€śEntertainment Tonight.â€ť
