Paris Jackson has been offered the chance to audition for the Philadelphia Eagles cheerleading team as soon as she is 18. The 14-year-old only recently joined her high school's cheerleading squad, but her name and talent has brought her national attention.

"We think Paris will make a great Eagle cheerleader!" coach Barbara Zaun told TMZ. "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."
Zaun has apparently scouted the teen and watched videos of her performing at games. It's what led her to extend the offer to Michael Jackson's only daughter, and she hopes that someday she will be a part of the Eagles family.
"She is already very comfortable in the limelight, so we think she would definitely stand out and impress the judges. We hope that she will try out for the team and be an Eagles cheerleader!" Zaun said.
Of course, Jackson has not made her future plans known, though she is likely to have a lot of offers from a variety of industries. She is interested in acting, modeling, and politics, according to TMZ. She seems perfectly comfortable in the public eye, which is unique, given that her father worked so hard to keep her out of it.
Jackson recently debuted a new haircut and style, perhaps a sign of her newfound independence and maturity. Reports state that she has been incredibly active at her high school and was eager to join the cheerleading squad after playing flag football.
Many wonder whether Jackson is being too exposed to the public, with her steady stream of tweets and videos.
"She's 14. Why is there even any talk about an Eagles cheerleading job? Sounds kinda weird anyone would want to discuss such about a 14-year-old girl," Rob posted on AOL Music.
"Paris Jackson is pretty and is on her high school cheerleader team but I don't think she shows any more talent than the girls on the squad. The Philadelphia Eagles more than likely only are interested in the draw she might have," added MikeyMyersM.
Jackson has not responded to the offer or speculated about what the future may hold for her.
