Paris Jackson is growing up and with a good attitude. I’m very fond of her and feel oddly protective of her as well. She gave an interview with Event Magazine in which she spoke loving things about her father and what her ambitions in life are. Some highlights:
I have lots of memories of my father…He was an incredible father. We all loved him to death.
He’d try to educate us as much as he could and was always looking out for us. He was very protective.
[About the masks she and her brothers always wore in public]: He didn’t want anyone to see what we looked like…That way we could have what he didn’t, which was a normal childhood.
I want to have a normal high-school experience.
On visiting Neverland two years ago:
I cried and I cried. It’s beautiful there. It still has good energy.
And, although she’s a big fan of her father’s music and other legendary musicians, her current ambition is to be…a heart surgeon!
I want to help people, that’s it.
Miss Jackson also revealed that she’s like to restore Neverland as a place for sick children to visit, and that she keeps a shrine of her dad in her room.
She looks great in the shoot, although I wish they toned down the makeup and photoshop. She’s 15.
