Michael Jackson always kept his kids out of the public eye when he was alive. When he passed away in 2009, his kids were seen a little bit more, but we still knew very little about them. This year it seems as though Michael’s daughter, Paris Jackson is ready to shine!
She was seen a week ago shooting a campaign for Chanel in Paris. Now, Rolling Stone has just released their interview with Paris and her beautiful cover. I honestly wasn’t ready for this. I never thought the day would come where we would get any interview out of one of Michael Jackson’s children. In her first ever in-depth interview, Paris talks about her father’s death, self-harming, addiction and more!
On her father’s death being a murder: “Absolutely. Because it’s obvious. All arrows point to that. It sounds like a total conspiracy theory and it sounds like bullshit, but all real fans and everybody in the family knows it. It was a setup. It was bullsh-t.”
On her multiple suicide attempts and self-harming: “It was just self-hatred, low self-esteem, thinking that I couldn’t do anything right, not thinking I was worthy of living anymore…It was just once that it became public.”
On questions over Michael being her biological father: “He is my father. He will always be my father. He never wasn’t, and he never will not be. People that knew him really well say they see him in me, that it’s almost scary…I consider myself black. [Michael] would look me in the eyes and he’d point his finger at me and he’d be like, ‘You’re black. Be proud of your roots.’ And I’d be like, ‘OK, he’s my dad, why would he lie to me?’ So I just believe what he told me. ‘Cause, to my knowledge, he’s never lied to me.”
