The Eagles Cheerleaders May Want Paris Jackson But They Can’t Have Her

You may have heard of the bizarre story of the Philadelphia Eagles Cheerleaders wanting to recruit the daughter of legendary pop star Michael Jackson to be a part of their squad. But there’s one problem: Paris Jackson is only 14 years old.

The L.A. Times writes that you have to be at least 18 years old and also have a high school diploma to be an Eagles cheerleader.

“We think Paris will make a great Eagle cheerleader,” Zaun told

“We thought that she had a
lot of poise, confidence and enthusiasm in her cheer performance. Paris
has that ‘wow factor’ that makes a great cheerleader.”

There’s one catch though. In order to be an NFL cheerleader, you must
be at least 18 and have a high school diploma. Jackson is 14, so her
audition for the team is at least four years away.

Glad we got that out of the way.

But good job getting the Eagles Cheerleader Calendar talked about on national TV, Eagles cheerleader person.
