Star Jones, Gladys Knight Attack Paris Jackson, Defend Janet Jackson

While Paris Jackson has been keeping the world up to date on everything that has been going on with her family's recent drama, several stars, including Gladys Knight and Star Jones, have spoken out, saying that the 14-year-old needs to keep her mouth shut.

Soul singer and Jackson family friend Gladys Knight had some harsh words for Michael Jackson's daughter.

Appearing on CBS' "The Talk," Gladys asked, "Paris is 14? How old is Janet? Who's the one to try to direct the other one here? I would think it's a good thing [Janet] lets Paris know who she is ... If [Paris] called me that, she would have no teeth ... That's how we were brought up. You respect your elders."

Never shy to say what she thinks, Star Jones took to Twitter to give her opinion on Paris' loose-lipped Twitter feed.

"Somebody PLEASE take @parisjackson phone! She's a CHILD So STOP it," Jones tweeted. "I have 8 aunts...and if I was "tweeting" our family info that's being used for TABLOID fodder ONLY! They'd check me with a quickness," she continued via the social networking site.

Star did not return my emails asking for comment.
