Paris Jackson in Glamour: Not Your Typical Teenager

by at . Comments

Paris Jackson, 14, is in many ways just a typical teenager.

In other ways, Michael Jackson's little girl is anything but.

The daughter of the biggest entertainer in world history spends most of her time as her peers do, navigating high school cliques, listening to music, tweeting at 3:00 a.m., etc.

But the famous offspring is ready to step into the spotlight.

Her desire to become an actress - one of the decisions that may have led to the public Jackson squabbling in July - has been met with mixed reviews in her family.

"A lot of people don't want me to do [Janet Jackson in particular does not, openly discouraging the idea, but Aunt La Toya believes in me," Paris told Glamour.

"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."

As for Paris Jackson defining herself while living in Michael's shadow?

"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 I do have talent and that I can make it if I try."

"I want to be my own person. The clique in my class, they don't like me or my friend because we're outside of the box. Because 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 Jackson is not Michael Jackson's biological daughter and she knows it. She does not even know who her father is, so it is comical for her to not want to be known as, "MJ's daughter." She does not have to be known as Michael's daughter, she can be known as Arnold Klein's daughter, maybe that would suit her better.

MJ's kids' trust is funded so far in the piddly sum of $30M with lots more to come their way unless the Jackson siblings get their hands on it. Don't cry for Paris, please.

What is wrong with you people!? Paris Jackson is Michael Jackson's daughter, she was not adopted! He's on her birth certificate listed as FATHER! Also Michael Jackson was the biggest entertainer in the world! For every moron like you people he had 1000 fans, so I think his fans (all around the world) out number you idiots by far. Why don't you bullies worry about your own lives! I'm sorry that you all feel so inferior to Paris that you've taken to bullying a teenage girl! I'm sorry you're so talent less that you begrudge others. Paris is a smart, talented, beautiful girl and I'm sure she doesn't give a rats ass what any of you think, she was raised better than that! Obviously you weren't! Have a nice day losers!
