Writing music is Paris Jackson's stream of consciousness... for now.
Paris Jackson made an immediate impression last month when she graced the cover of Rolling Stone with a stunning shot by photographer David LaChapelle. It launched her into the spotlight – which even inspired a frantic chase by the paparazzi – but for what? Michael Jackson's daughter says she has no plans to release any music, despite continuous writing.
"I write music for myself. I use it as a way to get stuff out. It's not something I see myself following career-wise," she says in the tenth issue of CR Fashion Book. "There are so many amazing artists in my family. If I were to do it as a career, it would change how I feel about music and I don't want that to happen."
Paris also comments on her famous father. "[He is] all of my inspiration. I would say 99 percent of my inspiration comes from him, because he has always been my world," she said. "He is my roots." She added, "He was the strongest person I know and tried to do everything with as much love and kindness as possible.”
The 18-year-old reflected that in her interview with RS. "They always say, 'Time heals,'" she says. "But it really doesn't. You just get used to it. I live life with the mentality of 'OK, I lost the only thing that has ever been important to me.' So going forward, anything bad that happens can't be nearly as bad as what happened before. So I can handle it." She adds that Michael still visits her in her dreams: "I feel him with me all the time."
Paris has all of the necessary tools to become a formidable pop star, so it's only a matter of time till the tides change. That is, if she wants it to.
