Paris knows that she is no more a little girl and not yet a woman. She wants to honor her father Michael Jackson’s heritage and also at the same time she wants to create her own identity in the Hollywood.
The fresher Paris graces the April 2017 cover of Harper’s Bazaar, but given her lineage and thin résumé, it will definitely talk about her famous family. “Many times I have thought that not to do anything publicly and I have my own private life. Then I have started observing how the world is moving around.
And I thank that each year it’s getting worse,” Paris says. “I anticipate there are many people who would feel very happy to be in my position, so I want to utilize it for important things. I have many ideas going inside my mind, but I’m trying to find the right way to do it. I mean, I’m 18. I cannot have it completely, but I have a plan.”
Paris was born into pop music royalty, but it wasn’t necessarily the life Michael wished for his little girl. “I was not around girls. When I was a kid, I was with my dad and two brothers [Prince Jackson, 20, and Blanket Jackson, 15],” Paris says. “While growing up, I was treated as the favorite kid being the only girl. I was my dad’s princess.”
She says: “Michael was very protective of his children and until she became 12 years old, she was home-schooled which meant that she only had interactions with her family members or other adults. Due to this, Paris lacked social skills and she literally had to force herself to learn them fast. Since last six years, she was learning how to communicate.”
However, she says, “I think I have become pretty good at it.” In the eight years that followed his father’s death, Paris tried to commit suicide many times, and she finally wanted treatment at age 15. A self-proclaimed “weird child,” Paris “always needed a break to pursue her own thing, just ‘because she wanted to enjoy her independence.”
