What would Michael Jackson do if he saw the day that the child he tried so hard to shield from the spotlight was in a magazine editorial?
We think he would be proud of his stunning daughter. Paris Jackson has made her first modeling debut in the upcoming issue of Glamour magazine, showing off her beautiful blue/green eyes and giving an inside look at her high school life in the spotlight.
Check out some excerpts from her yet-to-be released article below.
On her acting career:
“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 being the King of Pop’s daughter:
“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 her personal style:
“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.’”
Paris definitely has a strong personality for a 14-year-old, and some serious star potential. Kudos to Glamour for snagging this beauty for her first editorial!
