On Wednesday’s episode of the broke down version of The View known as The Talk, the hosts brought up the rumors that Janet Jackson and Paris Jackson got into a slap slap slappity fight right there on the driveway of Katherine Jackson’s house. Paris Jackson already denied that hands went flying, but the hosts of The Talk still brought it up. The show’s guest Gladys Knight made it clear that if Paris Jackson served her some lip, that little girl would be on the next Midnight Train to Whoop Ass. They’d have to call in an ambulance, a dentist, an orthodontist, a denture maker and a professional who specializes in gum transplants, because Paris Jackson would be picking her teefs up from off the ground. Gladys explained herself like this:
“It’s drama, that’s what it is. If you lived up under the microscope as this family does, everybody has dysfunctionality in their families, either one way or the other. See, I’m from the south and was raised in that southern way. You have to understand Paris is what, 14? How old is Janet? Who’s the one who tries to direct the other one here? And I would think that it’s a good thing she lets Paris know who she is. She is a Jackson, she shouldn’t be putting the business out there like that. Cause people read into whatever they want to read into, that’s how they get the drama. So, she’s just trying to protect her, in a way. But if she called me that, she wouldn’t have any teeth…You respect your elders.”
That raspy whistling sound you hear is Joe Jackson swooning through his gross bull dog nostrils over Gladys’ words. As soon as he composes himself, I’m sure he’ll say, “An ass whooper after my own heart.” If this is Gladys’ way of trying to get Joe Jackson to ask her out on a romantic date where they’ll pick out switches together, it’s totally going to work.
Here’s the video of Gladys saying it:
