Paris Jackson Poses For Glamour & Says “The Title of Michael Jackson’s Daughter Doesn’t Fit Me!”

Just like her famous father, Paris Jackson has a way of grabbing an audience’s attention.

Whether tweeting about her grandmother gone missing or talking to Oprah about being bullied, 14-year-old Paris has been in the spotlight ever since her heartfelt speech at Michael Jackson‘s funeral three years ago.  And now, the King of Pop’s only daughter is ready, not just for her closeup, but to make a name for herself.

The teenager appears in her first-ever fashion editorial in the new issue of Glamour and opens up about taking Hollywood by storm, despite the fact that her family would rather she stay as far away from the limelight as possible.

“A lot of people don’t want me to do it [Ed. note: Her aunt Janet Jackson has said, "She has the rest of her adult life to be that actress that she wants to be...Your childhood—you completely lose."], but Aunt La Toya believes in me,” Paris said. “She heard me play a little guitar and sing, and she started clapping, ‘Oh my God, oh my God.’ She really does encourage me; it’s just awesome of her.”

Paris also realizes that she’ll have to work hard to get out from under her father’s famous shadow.

“I love my dad, and I’m proud to be his daughter,” the blue-eyed beauty admitted. “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.”

Being her own person is important to Paris even if it means being an outsider with most kids her age.

“The clique in my class, they don’t like me or my friend because we’re outside of the box,” she says. “We’re not copycats. Prince calls me goth, but I’m more rock ‘n’ roll. (I listen to older music like AC/DC; Phil Collins is the ish.) 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.’”

Do you think Paris Jackson will ever be considered anything other than “the daughter of Michael Jackson?”
