Paris Jackson shares RARE details about her father Michael
Sylvie Claire / May 14, 2022
Paris Jackson gave an interview to PopSugar. She talked about some of the lessons her famous father taught her before his death in 2009. I was raised by a hippie guy who loved free love, so we were taught that beauty comes from within - and to this day, I believe that, the musician and model explained.
The 24-year-old confides that growing up in the public eye as part of one of the most famous families in entertainment led her to have a complicated relationship with beauty. Recently, I've learned to deal with it all by practicing self-love and positive affirmations and diving deeper into my spiritual life, the King of Pop's daughter said.
It's only in the last couple of years that I've started to really feel good about myself and my body, to feel good. Those moments of self-love don't happen 24 hours a day, but the bad moments are getting rarer.
Paris wants to help redefine the standard model of beauty using Michael Jackson's advice.
The Jackson children rarely talk about their father, but they have shared a few snippets of their lives with the music legend in recent years. Paris previously spoke about how her father inspired a strong work ethic and eclectic musical tastes in his children. My dad made sure we were cultured and educated, and didn't just show us the glitz and glamour, the hotels and five-star venues, Paris told Naomi Campbell in her YouTube series No Filter.
Growing up, it was about earning things. If we wanted five toys, we had to read five books, she said. It's about earning them, not just being entitled to certain things or thinking, 'Oh, I got this. It's like working for it, working hard for it - it's, it's something completely different. It's an accomplishment.
