Paris Jackson has blossomed into a beautiful young lady and at the age of 14 she’s already shown that she has a voice of her own.
The late Michael Jackson’s only daughter graces the inside pages of the upcoming issue of Glamour magazine and is ready to let the world know more about who she is.
In the publication, Paris opens up about her Aunt La Toya being supportive of her career choice, not wanting to be knowns as Michael Jackson’s daughter and much more.
On acting: “A lot of people don’t want me to do it [her aunt Janet Jackson has said, "She has the rest of her adult life to be that actress that she wants to be... Your childhood—you completely lose."], but Aunt La Toya believes in me. She heard me play a little guitar and sing, and she started clapping, ‘Oh my God, oh my God.’ She really does encourage me; it’s just awesome of her.”
On not using the Jackson name: “I love my dad, and I’m proud to be his daughter. I just don’t think the title ‘M.J.’s daughter’ fits me. A lot of people think he’s the only reason I’m making it, but I want to show that I do have talent and that I can make it if I try. I want to be my own person.”
On being unique: The clique in my class, they don’t like me or my friend because we’re outside of the box. We’re not copycats. Prince calls me goth, but I’m more rock ‘n’ roll. (I listen to older music like AC/DC; Phil Collins is the ish.) A ton of kids at school have made fun of me; if I had to give advice to other girls, I would say, ‘Hang loose and ignore them. They shouldn’t faze you no matter how popular they think they are.’”
