Paris Jackson is all grown-up, and she’s opening up about what it was like to be the daughter of Michael Jackson. The 23-year-old model and singer has followed in her dad’s footsteps, and she has a huge appreciation for art.
“My dad was really good about making sure we were cultured, making sure we were educated, and not just showing us like the glitz and glam, like hotel hopping five-star places,” Paris said.
During a recent interview with Naomi Campbell on her No Filter podcast, Paris said it was her father who helped her develop her love of music and art.
Instead of selfies and pictures of her food, Paris Jackson’s feed is filled with drawings of herself and numerous paintings and other digital art. One of her favorite artists is Alice Pironti, whose work is all over her feed.
One commenter said Paris’ “art is beyond my words!”
When she’s not posting art on Instagram, the 23-year-old is busy working on her career. Most recently, she modeled in a campaign for Bulgari Jewelry and fans went wild for photos that showed off Paris’ numerous tattoos.
In the photos, she wore very natural makeup and let her beauty shine through. Fans praised Paris and Bulgari Jewelry for having a campaign with a natural model in it.
Besides modeling, Paris Jackson is also an actress and singer. She has made appearances in the current season of American Horror Story and starred as Jesus in the movie Habit alongside Bella Thorne. As a singer, Paris signed with Republic Records, and her first single, Let Down, was released in October 2020.
In 2017, Michael Jackson’s child got a tribute tattoo on her foot. It was the word “Applehead,” and she got it on the eighth anniversary of the pop star’s death.
Another tribute to her dad can be found on her collarbone. The 23-year-old has the words “faith, trust, and pixie dust,” inked there in honor of Michael’s nickname for her. The late pop star would call his only daughter Tinkerbell while he saw himself as Peter Pan.
According to Paris, Michael Jackson wanted his children to earn things. His daughter said if they wanted five toys from the store they would have to read five books to earn them. She said that her father helped teach her about accomplishment and hard work.
Paris said that her father would tell them that “‘the minute that you stop learning is the minute that you’re going to start dying.’”
