#womancrushwednesday : Paris Jackson, Princess of Pop
Stunning natural face, luring effervescent eyes- Miss Paris Jackson is on the rise. Although she is three years shy of being a woman legally, this young woman possesses overwhelming beauty that cannot be denied. Michael Jackson’s only daughter, aspiring actress Paris’s organic charm gives her far more attention and adoration than she realizes, evidently. This past week the 15 year-old attempted suicide with 20 Motrin pills and a kitchen knife, according to the 911 call released this morning. Jackson was hospitalized last Wednesday and transferred to UCLA hospital, where her father died.
It’s easy for anyone to assume this is an emotional young female who wanted attention but the thing is, she doesn’t need attention. Simply being a child of such a prominent figure like Michael Jackson puts Paris under an eternal spotlight of fame whether desired, or not. Currently, she and grandmother and guardian Katherine Jackson, as well as brothers Prince Michael and Blanket, are involved in a lawsuit suing tour promoter AEG live LLC for failing to properly investigate Conrad Murray, MJ’s personal doctor. Katherine Jackson emphasizes the promotion company missed crucial warning signs about Michael’s failing health. Murray, who was convicted of involuntary manslaughter for giving Jackson a lethal dose of propofol anesthetic, attempted to reach out to Paris with statements expressing love and concern via jail:
From where I sit, all I have to give is love. I love Paris with all of my heart and I just want her to be well and happy. Upon hearing the news of her current crisis, I was gravely affected. I reached out to her through my statement to let her know that I care deeply about her, and I always have, and I always will. She will continue to be in my prayers.
Various celebrities have poured out their support for Paris over the past week such as Marilyn Manson, Alice Cooper and Demi Lovato according to Today Entertainment. In a statement, Manson wished her to get better and offered to put her on the guest list any time she’d like to see any of his performances. He also dedicated his song “Disposable Teens” to her at his LA show that she was unable to attend last Thursday. Manson’s tour-mate Cooper suggested the suicide attempt probably stems from the stress of the trial in combination with just being an average, emotional teenage girl who lost the guidance of her father at a young age.
I don’t think the (Marilyn Manson) concert was the thing. She’s under a lot pressure right now with this trial. She’s 15 years old. I have two girls, and I know what 15-year-old girls are like. Everything is important. I think she’s just very emotional right now. It’s always going to [be] between what you can do and what you can’t do.
Paris is to debut her acting talents as the lead role in the upcoming live-action animated C-It Entertainment’s “Lundon’s Bridge and the Three Keys” based on the book series written by film producer and award-winning director, Dennis Christen. Christen released a statement to the Daily Beast after her last week’s incident confirming her role isn’t being stripped from her any time soon- which is good considering the film’s message is close to home for Paris. The theme of “Lundon’s Bridge and the Three Keys” emphasizes saving the planet, something Michael Jackson advocated wholeheartedly. 50 percent of the profits from the film will go directly to schools across the U.S. In an interview with Ellen Degeneres, Paris recalled her father’s support of her wish to act by practicing improv with her.
Producer Christen said,
It’s the first signs of trouble, and we don’t want to be the kind of producers that say, ‘OK, you’re out.’ We want to back her. She is right now our girl.
Backing her, is a considerably great move. Wanting to take one’s own life is an extremely serious issue that a plethora of young people face every day. Rather than push her away and make her feel as if there is something wrong with her, embracing the unique beauty and talents Paris possesses is what is important for her to develop confidence, purpose and self worth. She deserves it.
Miss Jackson is a dime in the making, and I am fo’ real. You’re a beauty with talent and divine genes, babe- keep your head up!
