With the memorial only hours away, celebrities are still sending out their words of remembrance for the fallen pop legend.

Star Wars icon turned author Carrie Fisher took to her blog to discuss her feelings for the late Michael Jackson and his role as a father and friend.

She says:

"Hello to one and all!

Tis I! Your intermittent blogmeister, back to provide you with inside information on The Late Michael Jackson. I was friendly with Michael. I believe that he considered us to be friends.

I visited him over the Christmas holiday at that weirdly expensive rental home somewhere here in Southern Cal. What’s odd is that I see fans laying flowers in front of homes that I don’t think Michael ever lived in. But then this whole scene is odd.

Here’s the thing though—–I saw Michael multiple times with his children and thought that he was a very good father. Not only based on seeing him with his children, but also based on his children themselves. They are very well behaved, respectful children, who seemed content in Michael’s company. I mean, I doubt if Michael cooked for them or parented them in ways that might be considered conventional, but you could see how much he loved them and how much they loved him. I do NOT believe that Michael did anything untoward to not only his children, but to any other child. He was a child himself. I never in any way viewed him as someone who was capable of doing what they accused him of doing. He was devoted to his family and doted on them. In a town where you more often see children of celebrities with their nannys and in the care of others, I never saw anything like that with Michael and his children. I would say he was a hands on parent, but with the press and some of the public being as they are, I wouldn’t want to say anything that could be interpreted in any way other than the loving scene that I observed between his 3 children and himself. And I stand to gain nothing in stating this.

Michael was one of the sweetest souls I’ve ever encountered. He was generous and polite. And where you might expect to see children that were pampered and spoiled, his children showed none of this.

I don’t believe that Arnie Klein is the father of these children. Why would he do that? He might as well just adopt 3 kids, rather than arrange a situaion where he was not the father. I realize these children don’t resemble him mightily, but I there must be some other explanation other than someone else fathered these children. Michael was eccentric, no doubt. But he was no fool.

My favorite news program that I’ve seen regarding this whole scene is a program that asked the question, “Are there too many programs on Michael’s death and who will gain custody of his children…….”

Anyway, there you have it. For now. I’ll let you know of any other insights I am privy to as we go along. If I can.

Aside from that, I’m fine. (whatever that means!) Tomorrow we go to Berkeley to do my show for two weeks to prepare for Broadway. Perhaps I will seek custody of Michaels children, depending on how things develop………

Unless you have some other suggestions. Everyone else seems to want to weigh in on it……..

Marry me,
Carrie"

Do U agree with Carrie?

    I TOTALLY agree with her, Michael was an amazing person, no doubt.



  2. 2

    I TOTTALLY agree with her, I loved Michael, and I know that he was an amazing person.



  3. 3

    Well, she is Bi-polar…



  4. 4

    I do not. I mean I believe that he was an amazing performer, but I think that people have forgotten what a freak he was too. I'm not saying that it was entirely his fault, but I do think that he had inappropriate (to say the least) relationships with children.



  5. 5

    Bravo!!! I totally agree with her. That's how I "read" Michael too. I think he's nothing but a big kid. It might be "abnormal" for him not to act like an adult, but I think we need to be better about accepting people for their differences. He never hurt anyone, and yet we did and still do him and his family a world of harm by spreading ill gossip about him.



  6. 6

    Whatever Carrie - Michael Jackson was a freak!! A child molesting freak!



  7. 7

    What a nice statement. Light hearted, but meaningful and supportive. Carrie seems to have a good grasp on Michael.



  8. 8

    Of course Arnie is the daddy. As a single father with a questionable past, it would have been hard for Michael to adopt in a conventional sense. Also, I am sure he did not want his kids to have any part of the Joe Jackson gene pool. I agree with Carrie that enough is enough, but I am still going to TIVO the show! By the way, didn't Michael convert to Islam in the 90's and why doesn't the memorial reflect that??

    funny how all these people who met Michael are only coming out now to defend him



  10. 10

    I AM BY FAR NO INSIDER ON THE PRIVATE LIFE OF MJ, BUT I AGREE WITH HER THAT FROM WHAT I AND THE REST OF THE PUBLIC HAVE SEEN AND HARD ABOUT WHAT KIND OF FATHER HE WAS, THAT HE WAS A REALLY GOOD FATHER…HE NEVER LET GO OF HIS CHILD LIKE QUALITIES. AND THATS SOMETHING THAT WE SHOULD ALL TRY TO HOLD ONTO, A LEAST A LIL BIT. ITS GOOD TO BE YOUNG AT HEART, EVEN IF UR AN OLD SOUL…IF U GET WHAT IM SAYING….I HAVE NEVER BELIEVED THAT MJ BOTHERED ANY OF THE CHILDREN THAT HE WAS ACCUSED OF MOLESTING…NOR ANY CHILD….HE WAS THO, VERY ECCENTRIC AND TO THE PUBLIC, AT TIMES, QUITE BIZZARE….BUT HE HAD A HEART OF GOLD AND IT WAS FULL OF NOTHING BUT LOVE FOR ALL MAN-KIND…..I KNOW THAT HE IS WITH THE LORD NOW, WATCHING OVER US, AND WISHING THE BEST FOR EACH AND EVERYONE OF US….RIP MICHAEL!!

    Forgotten, EVERRRRRRRR

    I really believe what she's saying here. I have no doubt that Michael was just very misunderstood. He had a very different childhood than anyone else has experienced, and I think he felt a connection to children and cared deeply about them. Michael never had the opportunity to experience childhood, and that's why he seemed odd to some people. I never thought he was capable of hurting children like he was accused of. The accusations were made only to get money out of Michael Jackson, nothing else. Pretty sad that people would ruin this wonderful entertainer's reputation out of pure greed. R.I.P Michael Jackson

    You tell'em Princess Leia!



  15. 15

    Will be glad when he's buried and the media frenzy fades. Thank God for the remote.



  16. 16

    Love Carrie!!!



  17. 17

    Well Carrie, if MJ had a genetic disease of some kind, you are right he is no fool and would not want to pass that on to any of his children so he may have had help in that regard not to mention his drug problem.



  18. 18

    Sounds right.



  19. 19

    Carrie is a total moron. There is no way a biologically black man fathered three white children. Michael Jackson was a sick pedophile drug addict surrounded by enablers.



  20. 20

    I don't think MJ molested children. I do think that he (as childlike himself) wasn't able to perceive boundaries that most people consider appropriate between adults and children. I believe he genuinely didn't think he was doing anything wrong with his approach to children.

    Regarding his own children, I have a strong suspicion he is NOT the biological father. He was aware of his own gene pool flaws. His struggle to conceal the effects of vitiligo can't be ignored. He had to wear chalk-colored pancake makeup to conceal the splotches.

    What is kind of funny in a sad way is that he tried to hide his vitiligo with gloves and band-aids which became … fashion statements!

    Kind of like the way Madonna wears athletic gloves to cover her 'crypt-keeper' hands. I saw a couple of tweens wearing those gloves and laughed out loud.

    But, I don't think it matters that MJ isn't the biological father. He was CLEARLY their father and loved them with his entire being.



  21. 21

    Carrie Fisher had me until she said, "there must be some other explanation other than someone else fathered these children." Unless she believes in the immaculate conception there is no other explanation. DNA is DNA. MJ was a black man and his kids are very white. HELLO?!?



  22. 22

    i completely agree! there is NOTHING that proves he molested any children and all of you idiots who do say that are just regurgitating some bullshit you heard. It further illustrates your ignorance and hateful heart, so before you judge him, maybe you should think about why you are so quick to believe such lies. He was a good person, he was one of my heroes as a child, and i loved him.



  23. 23

    100% agree…M♥J



  24. 24

    I didn't know him personally but people who know him personally would know him best. So there we have it



  25. 25

    She is an idiot, unless he has somehow managed to bleach their skin and constantly treat their hair then there is no way those kids are his. He was fairly dark complected and every single one of his kids looks like they are German. Just look at Seal and heidi klum's kids, they are much much darker complected than Jackson's three kids.

  27. 27

    Another reason I love Carrie Fisher.



  28. 28

    This blog entry of hers made me cry.

    I love what she said, i agree with what she said and I wish that I could have met Michael and known him in this sort of way. She is a lucky woman.

    I'm not spiritual or religious.. but the hell with it, God Bless Carrie Fisher.



  29. 29

    CARRIE IS DELUSIONAL!
    *
    WTF was she thinking… "Michael is childlike…" Who wants a child raising children?
    *
    Everyone knows Michael was a DRUG ADDICT! Who wants a drug addict raising children?
    Everyone KNEW Michael had nannies, like any other HollyWEIRDO, and another rotating staff of freaks and enablers, some who even had medical degrees.
    *
    Remember how Lisa Marie Presley said he was completely self-destructive? Who wants a self-destructive person raising children? She said she would never have had a child with him as she could only envision the child custody battle…
    *
    Michael had many public personas and a very sick demented private persona. His children might have a shot at a normal life now that this twisted sister is gone.

    Re: strawberryblondie – How can you believe that? There was no proof. HOW DO YOU KNOW THESE FAMILIES YOU ACCUSED HIM OF ALL THIS B/S WERE NOT JUST LOOKING FOR MONEY, WHICH THEY DID RECEIVE?!?! Stop judging people. INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY. Bitch.



  31. 31

    These drug addicts stick together, don't they?



  32. 32

    We may never know if MJ molested any children but he was inapppropirate with them having them at sleepovers without their parents perhaps getting glimpses of their bodies or manipulating them in ways that were over their heads. He got away with it because he was famous and powerful. The parents put their kids at risk and no other 30 year old man would get a pass for this kind of behavior.

    I saw a clip of MJ with his son when he was 3 years old and it seemed like he was sweet with the boy (whose hair looked dyed blonde, by the way). But that does not mean he was always a good father.

    So why did he not father the kids (it is obvious!) I think he had a hatred of being black despite the fact he said otherwise- actions speak louder than words. His skin was white- it had to have been bleached! His nose was trimmed down to the point where he did not look African American at all. He was handsome as a boy and looked more and more deformed with each surgery he had as he tried to escape his genetics.

    Anyway, Carrie lost her credibility with me when she spoke about him being the father and why. Those kids did not resemble him in any way and the most obvious proof is they were not black.



  33. 33

    Re: lisaenyc – Most times the mind of a child is the best mind. Stop fighting a point that, trust me, has no worth.



  34. 34

    I agree he was a kind soul



  35. 35

    love her…she is always one to tell it like it is.



  36. 36

    I love you Carrie you are my fave. And I think your right about michael. He was out there yes, and because of his lifestyle we lost sight of how amazing he really was…is. When people have money things happen. good or bad but they happen and he lived the way he wanted and good for him. Shame on those who tried to blind side him and make $$.



  37. 37

    Anyone who believes all three of these white kids are biologically his has got a screw loose. While it is possible, it is statistically improbable that a black man (and MJ was a BLACK man) can have 3 white children, even with 2 mothers. He was very much their father insofar as he raised and loved them very much. But biologically, genetically, he carries all the dominant genes and those would win out with at the minimum, 2 of them. I know lots of children of black/white parents, and not one of them is a towhead! I will believe it when I see DNA results. Again, I'm not saying he wasn't a loving and attentive father to them, I'm just saying it's highly unlikely that they are all biologically his.



  38. 38

    only those that truly knew him would know what he wants and who knows who that is. Now in regards to paternity, I don't think that biologically they share dna with Michael, I think that it would be improbable that a black man and a white woman would produce 3 white children. Maybe 1 light skinned child but not all 3. I do agree with Carrie that Michael was there Dad, not just some odd playmate.



  39. 39

    I once worked with a black woman who was as dark skinned as Michael was. She had a baby with a native Norweigan, and let me tell you her daughter did not have any black features at all (minus the curly hair, but even then the texture was not coarse). She had blue eyes, white skin, and dirty blond hair. I was shocked! The mother explained that the father was pure Norweigan; thererfore, pure (no mix), so his genes were dominat. Who's to say that this did not happen with Debbie Rowe (the fact that her blood is pure (not mixed). Blanket seems to show some color (even Paris today seemed to show some color). SO, BELIEVE ME WHEN I SAY IT IS POSSIBLE for a child to look completely white, even though one of the parents is not.



  40. 40

    Hell yeah I agree. Great statement. I don't know if MJ was biologically the father of his kids but he was and always undoubtly will be their father. What a brave girl, that Paris. My heart broke for her when she stood up and fel the need to defend him like that. What is the world doing to these three right now..



  41. 41

    I agree with her…people like to call names and say hurtful things they arent perfect neither was he…everyone has issues but i dont believe he did anything remotely inappropriate with those children. People need to get a life and let the poor guy RIP



  42. 42

    Umm…yeah. As much as I love me some Princess Leia, Carrie Fisher is a known nut job and saucer. Sorry. Those are clearly not his kids. As a kid from mixed parents, you don't mix a black guy and a white lady and get completely white kids. I'm sure Michael was a sweet soul, but he was also completely damaged, lived in a completely surreal world, and probably was somewhere between dillusional and egomaniacal. This does not mean he is not a good man, it just means that he lived in a completely different world, as do most celebrities. Now, take the most talented, biggest superstar in the world…

    I want to have Star Wars marathon with you on a rainy Sunday. We'll make something for lunch and then order in for dinner. That would be the best! :)
