Paris Jackson says her dad Michael was 'free-love, hippie-type dude' in rare interview

By Liv Clarke

Paris Jackson has spoken about her father in a rare interview saying he was a “free-love, hippie-type dude”.

Michael Jackson, known to the world as the King of Pop, died in 2009 when his daughter Paris, who he had with Debbie Rowe, was just 11 years old.

Now 24, Paris, a musician and a model, has revealed that Michael instilled in her a belief that “beauty comes from the inside” and that she should keep an open mind when it comes to her looks.

Speaking to Popsugar, she said: “I try and always keep an open mind - not just with makeup, but with everything.

“I was raised by a free-love, hippie-type dude, so we were taught that beauty comes from the inside - and to this day, I still believe that.”

Paris revealed that she’s been “diving deeper into her spiritual life” by embracing self-love and positive affirmations.

She added: “It wasn't until the last couple of years that I've started feeling really good about myself and my body, and feeling comfortable and everything. Those moments of self-love aren't 24/7, but the bad moments are fewer and further between.”
