Michael Jackson - Paris Jackson Determined To Make It As An Actress

Michael Jackson's daughter Paris is determined to carve out a successful acting career because she longs to step out of her famous father's shadow.
The 14 year old, who lost her dad in 2009, is hoping to launch herself as an actress when she makes her big screen debut in 2013 fantasy film Lundon's Bridge and The Three Keys.
Paris insists she is not happy with being labelled just as "Michael Jackson's daughter" and wants to prove her talent away from her family connections.
She tells America's Glamour magazine, "I love my dad, and I'm proud to be his daughter, but 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."
Paris goes on to reveal she is not popular in her class at school because her musical tastes differ from her peers' and is often ridiculed for daring to be different.
She adds, "The clique in my class, they don't like me or my friend because we're outside of the box. We're not copycats. (brother) Prince calls me goth, but I'm more rock 'n' roll. I listen to older music like Ac Dc; Phil Collins is the ish (good). 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'."

All what she is doing and will do will be just because of Michael Jackson, all those who want to have to do with her it's just because she is the daughter of Michael Jackson, and allways it will be. She cannot show anything good as she loves just to be under the spotlights, being in the papers, the superficial part. All what she is doing is only related to the fact she is the daughter of Michael Jackson, to begin from the film for which that loser chose her and for which he did not have the money to fund it. Now he is indeed exploiting her being the daughter of Michael Jackson. Also these interview are made just because she is the daughter of Michael Jackson, nothing more. She first exploits her being the daughter of Michael Jackson. No doubt he would be horrified and would have never allowed things like that happened. The fame has gone to her head. Three years and she forgot what her father taught her. He did not want his children under the spotlights, and raised them like normal children to make them have a normal childhood. She learned very soon how to exploit Michael Jackson, like all others.

Paris, who is giving you guidance in that house old? Someone need to explain to you that you should not be tweeting all the time. I hope no one is putting you up to all of this. It seems like your so called family is trying to erase all that Michael taught you and your brothers.
