​Michael Jackson’s Daughter Paris Reveals What Life Was Like With Her Famous Dad

Paris Jackson, the daughter of late singer Michael Jackson, has revealed what life was like with her famous dad, saying he was keen to ensure their childhood was full of culture - and that they'd grow up knowing the value of hard work.

Speaking to model Naomi Campbell in a new episode of her YouTube series 'No Filter', 24-year-old Paris explained how she's a 'full believer' in the idea that she should earn everything, saying this was all part of her upbringing.

She recalled: "If we wanted five toys from FAO Schwarz or Toys R Us, we had to read five books.

"It's about earning it, not just being entitled to certain things or thinking, oh I got this. It's like working for it, working hard for it. It's something else entirely. It's an accomplishment."

Paris, who is the second child and only daughter of dad Michael, said she and her siblings also experienced everything from five-star spots to third-world countries, saying her father made sure he showed his family a wide variety of cultures when they travelled around the world.

She continued: "It was a blessing and privilege to be able to experience so much at a young age.

"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, hotel hopping, five-star places, but it was also like we saw everything. We saw third-world countries and we saw every part of the spectrum."

Over the years, Paris has dabbled in everything from music and acting to modelling, having released her debut album, Wilted, in November last year.

She said her famous family has influenced her in her career in a huge way - especially her pop icon father, whose musical tastes were wide-ranging.

She said: "I'm obviously a fan. I know all the lyrics to all of [his] songs.

"I feel like every part of my childhood will always influence how I am today, whether it's [through] experiences or like all of the music we listened to."

Paris added: "[My dad] loved classical music, jazz, hip hop and R&B, and obviously the Motown stuff but also like radio's Top 40.

"He loved rock music, soft rock, The Beatles, so we grew up around all of that. I feel like all of that influences my stuff."
