Michael Jackson’s daughter Paris Jackson has given her first in depth interview to Rolling Stone discussing growing up in the public eye, being part of a famous family, and memories of her late father.
Paris surprisingly even spoke on the circumstances surrounding her father’s death, boldly saying she believes it was a murder by an unnamed party. Michael’s death, Paris asserted to Rolling Stone’s Brian Hiatt, was “absolutely” a murder.
“Absolutely,” Paris said. “Because it’s obvious. All arrows point to that. 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.” Though Paris declined to give names, she did tell Rolling Stone that “a lot of people” wanted her father dead.

Paris compared the solving her fathers death to a chess game. “And I am trying to play the chess game the right way,” she said. “And that’s all I can say about that right now.”
Paris also spoke at length about Michael’s continued influence on her life. “My dad raised me in a very open-minded house,” she told Rolling Stone. “I was eight years old, in love with this female on the cover of a magazine. Instead of yelling at me, like most homophobic parents, he was making fun of me, like, ‘Oh, you got yourself a girlfriend.'” The full interview, which is very much worth your time, can be found right here.
