Even though Paris Jackson is only 24 years old, she has spent her entire life as a public figure because she is the second child of the legendary musician Michael Jackson.

Paris has encountered many challenges in her life since her father’s passing, and she has dealt with various problems. But these days, the talented young woman is working on developing her solo vocation in music.

And even though her life has been full of ups and downs, she has decided to open up about her childhood spent with her father, known as the “King of Pop.”

The “King of Music,” Michael Jackson.


You must be doing something right if people call you “The Lord of Pop,” right? The late singer had a tough life, even though we loved his music.

Michael Jackson had issues at home from the beginning, even when singing with his brothers in the Jackson Five. These issues were not helped by the fact that their father was a very strict man who was quick to punish his children if they did not comply with his wishes.

One could say that Michael Jackson was a product shaped from an early age to have a career in the entertainment industry, particularly as a vocalist and performer. Despite this, there is no way that anything can take away from the clear talent that can be found in his dancing, singing, and songwriting.

When Michael Jackson passed away in 2009, people all over the globe expressed their sadness over the loss of the singer. Paparazzi and tabloid newspapers followed him for most of his life, and they didn’t leave him alone even when he was being laid to rest for the last time.

Other media helicopters followed the ones that were transporting his body from the hospital in Los Angeles, where it was being handled. Even up to the present day, tales about Michael Jackson and his family continue to appear in publications all over the world.

These days, most of his attention is focused on his relatives and other family members. In particular, his children have been targeted, as many paparazzi want their share of the Jackson family.

Paris Jackson, Jackson’s second child, has grown up in the spotlight. Now she is doing everything she can to establish herself as her own person and not just Michael Jackson’s child.

The reality is that after some years spent dealing with mental disease, she is doing extremely well.

Early years of Paris Jackson’s life

On April 3, 1998, Paris Jackson was born in California. She is the only daughter that Michael Jackson and the second child that he has had.

Her childhood was spent in isolation; she and her brother both went homeschooling through grade 6. Michael Jackson was very careful of his children and ensured they did not have any contact with the public during his time as their father. The earliest photographs of Michael’s kids show them dressed up or hiding their identities by wrapping scarves around their heads and covering their features.

As a direct result, Paris and her brothers were forced to lead a very limited life on the Neverland Ranch. Nobody can argue that they didn’t have a lot of advantages in life, but at the same time, things couldn’t have been easy for them.

In an interview with supermodel Naomi Campbell that was put on YouTube, Paris Jackson talked about her childhood and her father. Campbell also asked Jackson about her father.

She said it was Michael Jackson who ensured they were “cultured.”

“My dad was really good about making sure we were cultured, making sure we were educated, and not just showing us the glitz and glam, like hotel hopping five-star places,” Paris said.

“It was also like, we saw everything. We saw third-world countries. We saw every part of the spectrum.”

Recalls her early life

Paris Jackson spent her adolescence moving from country to country as her father, Michael Jackson, pursued a career as a musician and performed in front of hundreds or thousands of fans worldwide.

She says she is extremely thankful for such a “privileged” childhood. On the other hand, Paris quickly realized she had no right to feel entitled to anything. Her father instilled in his children the idea that one must put in the effort to obtain things, and he ensured that they understood this concept.

“Even growing up, it was about earning stuff,” Paris said. “If we wanted five toys from FAO Schwarz or Toys ‘R’ Us, we had to read five books.

“It’s earning it, not just being entitled to certain things or thinking, ‘oh, I got this’,” she added. “It’s like working for it, working hard for it; it’s something else entirely; it’s an accomplishment.”

When Paris’s father passed away, she was only 11 years old.

The tragic passing of Michael Jackson

On June 25, 2009, “The King of Pop” experienced a cardiac arrest at his home and passed away soon after being transported to a nearby hospital. His death occurred on that same day. According to the terms of Michael Jackson’s will, Paris and her brothers are now under the legal care of their grandmother, Katherine Jackson.

Paris, who was only 11 years old then, took the mic at her father’s memorial ceremony, which was broadcast on television, and spoke a few words about her late father.

“Ever since I was born, daddy has been the best father you could ever imagine,” she said. “And I just wanted to say I love him so much.”

During the memorial service televised in Paris, both her brothers, Prince Michael and Prince Michael II, were present. Prince Michael is 12 years old, and Prince Michael II is 7. It was the first time the world saw more of Jackson’s children than just a glimpse of them during that performance.

Then, in January 2010, they were in the public eye again when they went to the 2010 Grammy Awards to accept their father’s Lifetime Achievement Award.

Life of Paris Jackson after “Neverland”

Paris appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show in November of that same year to discuss her father, stating that she thought he was amazing and talking about how she admired him.

“I kind of felt like no one understood what a good father he was; he was the best cook ever,” she told Winfrey. “He was just a normal dad.”

“He made the best French toast in the world,” Paris added.

According to The Daily Mail, after her father’s death, Michael Jackson, Paris Jackson moved into a mansion in Calabasas, California, with her grandmother Katherine Jackson and other family members. Michael Jackson previously owned the mansion.

At the age of 19, she decided to move into Michael Jackson’s private studio at the family property, which she then converted into a bedroom designed like a dorm room.

The death of one’s parent is always a difficult experience. However, for Paris, it meant a great deal more than that. She was faced with the realization that she was supposed to carry on her father’s legacy.

“I tried to grow up too fast.”

Paris decided to enroll in a private school when she was in the seventh grade. At this point, the only people who accepted her for who she was were the elder kids, and it didn’t exactly work out how they had planned.

“I was doing many things that 13-, 14-, 15-year-olds shouldn’t do. I tried to grow up too fast, and I wasn’t that nice person,” she told Rolling Stone.

At roughly the same time, the use of social media began to become popular, and Paris was subject to cyberbullying.

“The whole freedom of speech thing is great,” she explained. “But I don’t think that our Founding Fathers predicted social media when they created all of these amendments.”

As a young adult, Paris went through some difficult experiences. After a very traumatic event, she even thought about taking her own life, but finally, that experience served as a turning point for her.

She attended a therapeutic school in Utah for the entirety of her sophomore year and the first part of her junior year, which was very helpful for her.

“I’m a completely different person,” she said. “I was crazy. I was crazy; I was going through a lot of teen angst. And I was also dealing with my depression and anxiety without help.”

Career Path of Paris Jackson

Paris finished high school one year early in 2015, but she already had a lot on her mind. She was one of the heirs to Michael Jackson’s multibillion-dollar estate. As a result, everyone regarded her as a superstar even though she had not accomplished anything in her own right.

However, at this point, Jackson is moving in the same career path as her father, the entertainment industry. She has taken her father’s advice to heart: to get what you want out of life, you have to put in the effort to get it. Paris declared that she was a “full believer” that success should be something one must work for.

For someone born into ridiculous wealth, as the child of one of the most famous people in modern history, this is something that we completely admire Paris for, and it’s one of the reasons why we call it our second home. She wishes to create her path in life, and it doesn’t matter what happened to her in the past or who her father is.

Except for her siblings, she never had any contact with children while growing up. It was a big adjustment for her when she moved on from Neverland and started attending a regular school instead. She may have been raised as Michael Jackson’s child, but she always believed that the world was much broader than that. And things didn’t get any easier as they continued to meet.

“Once I got introduced into the real world, I was shocked. It blew me away,” Paris told Harper’s Bazaar. “Not just because it was sexist, but misogynist and racist and cruel. It was scary as hell. And it still is really scary.”

Acting and making songs

So, what actions did Paris take? To begin her career, she chose a path unique to her and became a model. And she is incredibly gifted in that area!

In recent years, she has appeared on the covers of some of the most influential magazines in the world, such as Rolling Stone, Vogue, and Narcisse, to mention just a few.

Modeling is something that Paris finds very therapeutic and comes very easily to her. When people saw how drastically her father had changed due to all of his plastic surgeries, they were shocked. However, Paris is not surprised by his decision in this day and age of social media and cyberbullying.

“I’ve had self-esteem issues for a long time,” she said. “Plenty of people think I’m ugly, and plenty don’t. But there’s a moment when I’m modeling where I forget about my self-esteem issues and focus on what the photographer tells me – and I feel pretty. And in that sense, it’s selfish.”

Followers of Paris can get a peek into her life through the photos and videos she posts on Instagram. She seems to enjoy spending time with her friends and doing things that she couldn’t enjoy when she was younger fully.

Released her first album

She followed in her father’s footsteps by releasing her debut album, Wilted, in 2020. Paris Jackson has published music, but instead of the R&B and pop sound that her dad was known for, she has released an indie-folk album.

“It’s mainly just a story of heartbreak and love, in general, and the thoughts and feelings that come after it doesn’t work out,” she told Paper.

Paris Jackson claims that she was raised with her father’s music and knows the words to all of his songs. Michael Jackson’s musical preferences served as an inspiration to her while she was continuing to develop her distinctive style.

“He loved classical music and jazz and Hip Hop and R&B and the Motown stuff,” she says.

“I feel him with me all the time.”

She does not believe that the passage of time can mend broken hearts and has instead learned to accept her father’s untimely death.

On the other hand, she believes that Michael Jackson will always be there for her because she frequently has dreams in which he comes to her.

“I live life with the mentality that, ‘OK, I lost the only thing that has ever been important to me.'” she told Rolling Stone. “So in the future, anything bad that happens can’t be nearly as bad as what happened before. So I can handle it.

“I feel him with me all the time.”

Those who have experienced the pain of losing a parent can certainly empathize with Paris, who is going through the anguish that comes along with her circumstance. To the same degree, however, no one else has had the opportunity to experience what it was like for Paris Jackson to grow up.

We are so happy that she can finally do what she wants without the media and paparazzi following her. Best of success to you, Paris!
