Paris Jackson Requests That People Stop Editing Her Skin Tone

Paris Jackson Requests That People Stop Editing Her Skin Tone

Paris Jackson sent out a tweet a few hours ago asking some fans who edit photos of her to stop changing her skin.

“i appreciate everything y’all make for me, i enjoy every single edit i see,” the 19-year-old wrote on Twitter. “but please stop lightening my skin to make me look more white. and please stop darkening my skin to make me look more mixed. i am what i am. i’m aware of what i look like and i finally happy with it..”

When someone asked why she mentioned making her look “more mixed,” Paris responded, “sometimes peeps say i ‘don’t look mixed enough to be bi racial.’”

    This girl is useless. Her tats look like a toddler scribbled all over her. MJ would be horrified.

  • Stoni

    MJ wouldn’t be horrified because he was a sick individual and over-rated. Paris is VERY pretty.

  • Casey C

    does she really believe MJ was her biological father? oh please,

  • tom

    Pretty for you is everything.

  • Gina

    This little girl actually thinks she’s biracial? Her tweet is moot.

  • KS_in_TP

    It’s fascinating, isn’t it? She KNOWS she isn’t his bio child, but it’s almost like she believes that paternity is what you want it to be — which is simply not the case. But who can blame her when society is telling young people that gender and sex can be what you want them to be. If society says a woman can decide that she (he?) feels like man, then that person is a man. Then we had Rachel Dolezal who took this one step further and decided that she was RACE fluid – a black woman in a white woman’s body. So she decided to identify as Black, even though she’s as white as white can be. Paris is only taking a page from this concept of “fluidity” by deciding that paternity is not based on blood, but based on whatever she wants it to be. This is the upside-down world we live in. She has stated outright in previous interviews that she considers herself black because “I was raised by a black person”. She how she did that?

  • KS_in_TP

    She’s insufferably arrogant and unlikable.

  • KS_in_TP

    She doesn’t actually believe that. She has skirted around the issue of her race many times.

  • Sansa Squad

    why can’t people just let her have this? I get that the racial politics at play here are tricky but like, what do people have to gain from stripping this poor girl of her connection to her dead father, especially when she’s only going by what he told her? idk it feels cruel to me.

    well she really doesnt look mixed. not one little bit.

    Look people, we know who her mother is, but the S donor is still a mystery. Arnold Klein is dead, so unless there’s some legal paperwork stating he is the father, it could be anyone. Paris is just wanting to grasp at this because she deeply adored and misses her father. IMO, it’s harmless. But, all this fame and attention she’s getting seems to be going to her head. She appears to be succumbing to the pressures of the business and wants to be the IT girl bad enough. Albeit, she’s very pretty. Prettier than some of these other so-called models famous today for who their parents are.

  • Hattie McDish

    I heard an interview with her where she clearly said she believes MJ is her biological father.

  • KS_in_TP

    Makes me wonder if she understands the meaning of “biological”. I’m being serious. That is a white girl, totally and completely.

  • Hattie McDish

    Aw c’mon, seriously. I have a bi-racial friend who is whiter than I am, and blond. Black mother, white father. It’s extremely common.

  • bull dog

    You know what good for her, I wish people would stop picking on her.

  • KS_in_TP

    This is not merely about hair, eyes, and skin. And you know this. She has absolutely ZERO features from Michael Jackson or anyone in his family. It would truly be an incredible feat of nature for a bi-racial child to look — skin, hair, eyes, lips, cheekbones, nose, everything — 100% like only one parent.

  • Sam80

    Does she actually think people believe her biological father was Michael? Delusional.

  • disqus_xOD1CLpWY9

    Michael Jackson NEVER fathered any kids, Debbie Rowe and Mark Lester
    are her parents.

    OMG…this poor thing. Her father is Michael Jackson’s plastic surgeon. I guess she drank the kool-aide.

    After Fear The Walking Dead started, a lot of people were surprised to learn Frank Dillane is mixed. His father is white and his mother is black. His brother, however, is darker complected like their mother. Genetics are neat!

  • Gina

    Except she said in an interview for Rolling Stone that she considers herself black. If she skirted around the subject since or before then, it’s because she knows she sounds ridiculous.

  • nerdygirl111

    Even if she isn’t MJ’s she could be bi-racial.

  • Rob

    Genetics are neat and people like KS_in_TP can’t be educated. They have closed minds that quickly file new content under the ‘fact’ label where it will stay for life. Save your energy for people who enjoy using their mind.

  • Amber

    Yeah, she’s not bi-racial.

    a very sick woman . I hope she can get help

  • Casey C

    she looks so much like one of Lester’s daughters it’s unreal. denial is a powerful thing, y’all. MJ might have been her ‘dad’ but he wasn’t her ‘father’. no way

  • Casey C

    nobody is saying he wasn’t her dad, that he wasn’t the guy that raised her (though that was still likely more nannies than MJ) simply that he wasn’t her biological father. which means she isn’t black, simply because a black man raised her which she claims. any other white girl pulled that she’d be pilloried into eternity, but she gets a pass for some reason.

  • KS_in_TP

    I definitely remember her saying that in an interview, but what she skirted around was whether MJ is her biological father. She’s now saying he is, but IIRC she did not come right out and say that in the RS interview which is exactly what led her to say, “I consider myself black because I was raised by a black man”. That girl is white. EVEN IF she had a drop of African blood in her that doesn’t make her black. I also have African ancestors and native American — I’m from NC, it’s common for most people to have some native American. I’m not blowing hot air here — I had my DNA done through Ancestry.com a couple of years ago while doing my family tree. But I’m white and there’s no sense pretending I’m anything else. Going back to Paris: I believe she’s spoiled, arrogant, and a massive attention-seeker. I don’t believe for one second she actually cares about what race people think she is, nor do I think she gives a rat’s bippy about African American people and culture. She pops up and makes these statements on social media when she’s not getting any attention. It’s all so ironic given that her father — the black man — hated his skin and features so much that he underwent massive amounts of plastic surgery, skin bleaching, and wearing straight-hair wigs. Paris has NO CLUE what it’s like to be “raised by a black man” because her father rejected that part of himself.

  • Sansa Squad

    Yeah, and I’m saying maybe she SHOULD get a pass because of the exceptional circumstances of her bizarre upbringing and tragic loss of her father at a young age… It was obviously important to him for them to know (or think) they were his biological kids, so taking that from her feels unnecessary and cruel when she’s only trying to honor what he told her. Sure, it’s not her only connection to him and he’s her father regardless, but it’s obviously a significant connection that’s important to them, and it’s not really hurting anyone for her to believe… I completely get why people wouldn’t be okay with it but I also think it’s an extraordinary circumstance and maybe we should just let this child live. (Plus, if he’s not her father, we don’t know who is – she could theoretically still be “mixed” with a biological father who’s light-skinned or mixed himself, we don’t *know*… So let’s leave it alone, just this once, is all I’m saying.)
