Paris-Michael Katherine Jackson has lived a life that's veered between sheltered and agonizingly exposed. She is a pure child of the 21st century, with her mashed-up hippie-punk fashion sense and boundary-free musical tastes.
But she is, even more so, her father's child. Paris is similar to Michael, in all of her strengths, and almost all of her weaknesses as well. She's very passionate. She is very emotional to the point where she can let emotion cloud her judgment.", says brother Prince. Paris has more than 50 tattoos, sneaking and nine of them are devoted to Michael Jackson, as her father brought her nothing but joy and she likes the reminders of this joy inked on her body.
In June 2013, drowning in depression and a drug addiction, Paris tried to kill herself at age 15 from self-hatred, low self-esteem, thinking that she couldn't do anything right, not thinking she was worthy of living anymore.
After her last suicide attempt, she spent sophomore year and half of junior year at a therapeutic school in Utah and reconnected with her biological mother Debbie Rowe, wom she has been supporting as Debbie was diagnosed with breast cancer and undergoing chemo therapies. She also faced cyberbullying, and still struggles with cruel online comments.
Paris moved out of her grandma Katherine's house shortly after her 18th birthday, heading to the old Jackson family estate in Encino. She spends nearly every minute of each day with her boyfriend, Michael Snoddy, a 26-year-old drummer. Paris wants to earn her own money, and now that she's a legal adult, and embrace her other inheritance: celebrity. She is, for now, a model, an actress, a work in progress. Modeling, in particular, comes naturally, and she finds it therapeutic. She plays a few instruments, writes and sings songs, but isn't sure if she'll ever pursue a recording contract. Paris shares her father's heal-the-world impulses and sees fame as a means to draw attention to favored causes.
Parishas been a devoted music fan all her life and dabbled in making her own, but has been hesitant to call herself a singer-songwriter until now. Paris debuted her music and singing career as one half of acoustic duo The Soundflowers with Gabriel Glenn, a band that was formed in 2018 making music described as: Original music from a SoCal folk band just tryna do the damn thing. To coincide with the music debut and EP release, The Soundflowers’ beginnings (and endings) were documented in the Facebook Watch program Unfiltered: Paris Jackson and Gabriel Glenn which explored the group’s music, alongside Paris’ own personal life including her spirituality, sexuality and family life.
On 30 October 2020 Paris released her solo debut single and music video “Let Down”, a song that started in her bedroom with just a guitar and is about coping with the heartache after her breakup from Gabriel Glenn. Paris turned her pain into art and describes her ethereal acoustic sound as alternative folk. Paris Jackson's solo debut album Wilted was released on 13 November 2020.
