Paris Jackson Releases New Music
The only daughter of the late great Michael Jackson has decided to finally go public with her music and spoke with Chris Connelly in a rare interview about her journey. 22-year-old Paris said she uses music to cope with the deep emotions she faces and "just to get things out, to purge."
She said "It's been 11 years and I've been through hell, whether it was him passing or all the other s*** I've been through in my life. If I don't talk about it or if I don't let it in my music, it's gonna completely ruin my life and it's gonna own me and I'll be a slave to that kind of pain. I don't want that."
In her new Facebook Watch series Unfiltered: Paris Jackson & Gabriel Glenn, we get to see Paris' daunting journey as a musician and how the support of those close to her gave her the courage to go public with her music.
Paris Jackson and Prince Jackson's Close Bond
When speaking about hearing his sister's new EP "Geronimo" for the first time, Prince Jackson proudly said "I can hear and feel all the emotion and pain and hurt that went into that song. I just remember thinking that, you know, this was a song, I think, that other people could relate to, but other people needed to hear."
With a huge smile beaming Paris was happy to hear her brother's support and shyly said "He's everything to me, you know? I've always looked up to him and always wanted his approval and everything and wanted to be more like him. So to hear him approve, not just approve but enjoy what I do, it's everything to me."
It is evident that the pair are incredibly close and take care of each other, Prince even admitting "The way we were raised, me being the oldest, I should be the one that's protecting the group." Her EP as one half of the group The Soundflowers debuted June 23 and Unfiltered: Paris Jackson and Gabriel Glenn is released every Tuesday on Facebook Watch where you can see Prince by her side in unwavering support.
