Michael Jackson's daughter is slaying 2017
Paris Jackson is a force with which to be reckoned.
The late King of Pop’s daughter, much like her famous father, led a private life up until recently. While Paris has slowly been making her way into the spotlight, it wasn’t until this year that the 19-year-old began seriously dabbling in an array of interests, from acting to modeling, as well as offering up revealing anecdotes about her life in her recent interview with Rolling Stone.

But don’t expect Paris to drop an album anytime soon. “I write music for myself,” she told director Lee Daniels in the cover story for Carine Roitfeld’s CR Fashion Book Issue 10. “I use it as a way to get stuff out.
