Paris Jackson spoke recently about the time she spent with her father Michael Jackson growing up.

Paris was only 11 years old when her father passed away in 2009. However, speaking to Naomi Campbell, Paris said it was “a blessing and a privilege to be able to experience so much at a young age”.

“Every part of the spectrum”

Paris Jackson released her debut solo album “Wilted” last November. Reviewing it, NME called it “a glimpse of the artist that Jackson could be”.

Paris Jackson spoke to Naomi Campbell as part of Campbell’s YouTube series “No Filter”. Paris said that it was this sort of upbringing from her father which has helped to shape her worldwide view.

She said, “It was also like we saw everything: we saw third world countries. We saw every part of the spectrum”.

She added, “My dad was really good about making sure we were cultured, making sure we were educated and not just showing us, like, the glitz and glam, like hotel-hopping, five-star places”.
