Michael Jackson, who sang in his 1995 song "Tabloid Junkie" that "Just because you read it in a magazine/Or see it on the TV screen/Don't make it factual," has spawned a would-be journalist.
The pop icon's 16-year-old son Prince Michael Jackson is scheduled to make his reporting debut today (6:30 p.m., WBBM-Channel 2) as a correspondent on "Entertainment Tonight."
His first assignment: interviewing "Oz the Great and Powerful" director Sam Raimi and stars James Franco and Zach Braff and director Sam Raimi. The "Wizard of Oz" prequel is a particularly apt subject for Jackson, whose dad played the Scarecrow in another Emerald City movie, 1978's "The Wiz."
Jackson makes no secret of his show-biz ambitions, telling the "ET" team, "I'm looking to become well-rounded as a producer, director, screenwriter and actor."
