Paris Jackson Opens Up: Her FIRST Interview With 'Rolling Stone'
This girl has been through a lot.....and seen a lot.
For her very first interview, daughter of the late, great Michael Jackson, Paris Jackson sat down with 'Rolling Stone' magazine.
The interview is an extremely revealing look into the 18 year old, and what she's endured growing up with the King of Pop as her father. She also discusses her bout with depression, defending Michael's legacy.....
And finding justice for his death. "They always say, ‘Time heals,’” “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.” Some more memorable quotes from the interview include Paris talking about not knowing who her father was to the real world: “I just thought his name was Dad, Daddy,” “We didn’t really know who he was. But he was our world. And we were his world.” Growing up on Neverland Ranch: “We couldn’t just go on the rides whenever we wanted to,” “We actually had a pretty normal life. Like, we had school every single day, and we had to be good. And if we were good, every other weekend or so, we could choose whether we were gonna go to the movie theater or see the animals or whatever. But if you were on bad behavior, then you wouldn’t get to go do all those things.” Revealed her several suicide attempts, which included slashing her wrists at age 15, as well as downing 20 pills of Motrin. She also revealed she believes her father was murdered. Talking about his 2009 "comeback" tour, Paris opened up about how exhausted MJ was: “I’d tell him, ‘Let’s take a nap.’ Because he looked tired. We’d be in school, meaning downstairs in the living room, and we’d see dust falling from the ceiling and hear stomping sounds because he was rehearsing upstairs.” Of course, Michael's doctor Conrad Murray was convicted of involuntary manslaughter following the singers death. Paris also holds AEG accountable, and fears for pop star Justin Bieber, who's under the same promoter: "They drain them dry and work them to death.”She then explains one time at a Bieber concert: “He was tired, going through the motions,” “I looked at my ticket, saw AEG Live, and I thought back to how my dad was exhausted all the time but couldn’t sleep.” And finally, getting justice for her father's death: “He would drop hints about people being out to get him. And at some point he was like, ‘They’re gonna kill me one day,’” “It sounds like a total conspiracy theory and it sounds like bulls---t, but all real fans and everybody in the family knows it. It was a setup. It was bulls---t.”
