Paris Jackson is 14-years-old and would like to be treated accordingly. The ‘Lundon’s Bridge’ actress recently told Glamour magazine that she is her own person who wants to make a mark as Paris, not just Michael Jackson’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,” said Paris.
Some members of the family would rather Miss Jackson wait until she is an adult to begin her acting career, but Paris doesn’t let that stop her. “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.”
‘Lundon’s Bridge and the Three Keys’ is scheduled to be released some time next year. The movie will serve as Paris’ entryway into the world of acting.
