Here’s Why You Shouldn’t Expect To Hear Music From Paris Jackson Anytime Soon
Well folks, I've got some good news and some bad news for you. Here's the bad news first: Don't expect to hear music from Paris Jackson anytime in the near future. Now onto the good news — despite deciding not to follow in her father's legendary musical footsteps, Michael Jackson's only daughter does have lots of huge plans stacking up in her very bright future. And you can certainly bet that if she's learned anything from her father, sky's most certainly the limit for this rising young star.
Now, I know that it may be a bit disappointing to hear that music isn't Paris' main focus at the moment, but there may still be some hope. I mean, she does continue write music for her own personal catalog and she's even performed in a band alongside her former boyfriend, Michael Snoddy, in recent years. And that all sounds promising, right?
However, despite those dabblings in the industry, Paris maintains that music is not something that she'd like to pursue professionally, revealing that she'd prefer to focus on modeling and acting. In a recent interview with Empire creator, Lee Daniels, for the latest issue of CR Fashion Book, Paris explained,
“I write music for myself ... I use it as a way to get stuff out. It’s not something I see myself following career wise. There are so many amazing artists in my family. If I were to do it as a career, it would change how I feel about music, and I don’t want that to happen.”
So, it sounds like the 18-year-old beauty won't be joining the family business anytime soon, but she did sweetly reveal that her father, who passed away in 2009 when she was just 11-years-old, serves as a constant motivating force in her life, telling Daniels,
“I would say 99 percent of my inspiration comes from him, because he has always been my world ... He is my roots.”
One thing's for sure, The King Of Pop's motivation certainly seems to be working in Paris' favor, as she recently snagged a guest role on Daniels' new drama, Star. And with her recent modeling gig for Chanel and this magazine cover for Carine Roitfeld's Fashion Book, it appears that the catwalk calls for the 5' 9" beauty haven't been too shabby for MJ's baby girl either. Sounds like I need a little bit of that Jackson motivation myself.
If history is any indication of the future, the Jackson legacy will certainly continue to shine through Paris' many endeavors and if we're lucky — maybe, just maybe, we'll all one day get to hear a bit of her musical talent.
