Paris says 99 percent of her inspiration comes from Michael.
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.
