“He didn’t want anyone to see what we looked like. That way we could have what he didn’t, which was a normal childhood,” she said.
Just like a typical teenager, she expresses a desire for more freedom:
“I’m on a tight leash and I feel that if that leash was loosened a little bit I would definitely have a chance of a normal childhood … I have friends who are completely normal … they don’t even think of me as MJ’s kid.”
Paris enjoys the public eye enough to pursue an acting career – but also has plans outside the spotlight once she gets out of school: “I want to be an actress, but just throughout high school. Then I want to go to medical school and be a doctor specializing in heart surgery. I want to help people, that’s it.”
Jackson also shares the same passion for Neverland Valley Ranch that her father did. She revisited the property two years ago and was wrought with emotion.
“I cried and I cried. It’s beautiful there. It still has good energy,” she said.
The Jackson estate has a mere 12.5 percent interest in Neverland – the rest belongs to a Capital banking group.
