I don’t blame Paris Jackson for believing what she believes, she has had the most bizarre upbringing you can imagine, she was raised by the eccentric King of Pop and his ever-changing face, but also by a bunch of nannies with no mother in sight. She lost her beloved father when she was just 11 and was then raised by the very dysfunctional Jehovah’s-witness-believer Jackson family. The poor girl went through a lot, she has just given a very in-depth interview to Rolling Stone, and I am not sure it was a good idea. But Frances Bean Cobain did the same thing, so why not Paris Jackson?
What do we learn about the 18-year-old?
She is still missing Michael Jackson a lot and feels his presence in her life: ‘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.;
She is sort of obsessed by death and autopsies,… Rolling Stone interviewed her during her 9th visit of the Museum of Death in Hollywood,… not a very good sign.
She downed in deep depression and drug addiction a few years ago, and tried to kill herself when she was just 15, slashing her wrist, swallowing pills and a lot of her 50 tattoos (nine of them are devoted to Michael Jackson) are covering her scars and track marks from drug use.
She was homeschooled, and briefly attended a private school when Jackson died (but she didn’t fit at all) then attended a therapeutic school in Utah. She was quite isolated from the real world ‘We don’t need friends. We’ve got you and Disney Channel!’ she explains reaffirming a deep love for her father. And despite her saying that Jackson’s number-one focus for them was education, she doesn’t have a real one and didn’t really go to college.
Of course Paris is certain that Michael Jackson was her biological dad, and she goes beyond that: ‘I consider myself black,’ she says explaining that her dad used to point his finger at her and say ‘You’re black. Be proud of your roots.’ ….’OK, he’s my dad, why would he lie to me?’ she says ‘Cause, to my knowledge, he’s never lied to me.’ Sure, except that Michael Jackson basically lied a lot during his life, but that’s way too much for her right now. I know that genetics can be very weird, but she and her brother have simply no African American traits whatsoever in their phenotypes and in the genetic lottery, considering that all these traits are generally dominant, they are simply a statistical oddities if Jackson is really their father. Let me seriously doubt, a simple DNA test would clarify everything…. Isn’t it a bizarre to say this when his dad tried to progressively erase his black heritage from his face?
She met her mother Debbie Rowe after her father’s death, she researched her online, which is another proof of Jackson’s desire to isolate his children.
Of course she is absolutely convinced her father was innocent of the multiple child molestation allegations against him, no surprise there, the image she still has of her father is totally idyllic.
At the top of this, she is certain her father was murdered, ‘AEG Live does not treat their performers right’ she says. ‘They drain them dry and work them to death’. She is even afraid for Justin Bieber! She blames Dr. Conrad Murray for her father’s death and quotes Jackson ‘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.’… ‘All arrows point to that [murder]. It sounds like a total conspiracy theory and it sounds like bullshit, but all real fans and everybody in the family knows it. It was a setup. It was bullshit.’
In Paris’ beautiful blue eyes, Michael Jackson is still Peter Pan, a misunderstood victim, who has never lied. It’s gonna hurt one day when she discovers the truth if she ever does. Does it matter what she believes? I am in the camp who thinks that truth always matter, even when it’s much harder than a Neverland fairy tale, but she is not ready for the truth, and may never be.

But the Sayville ferries were still…
