The 22-year-old has released her very own debut album in an echo to her late dad, as she credited all events in her life so far for giving her a broader outlook on life.
Though Paris was just 11 years old when Michael passed away in 2009, Paris says she would not have been the same had she not gone through the tragedy.
Speaking to Fault magazine, she said: “I believe everything that’s happened to me has been part of making me the person I am today.”
She added: “I wouldn’t take away any of that pain I went through because, without it, I wouldn’t be me.”
And when it comes to her music career, Paris says that no matter what she puts out, it’ll always be “disappointing somebody”.
She explained: “I’ve discovered that no matter what I do or what creative decisions I make, I’m going to be disappointing somebody.
“It’s impossible to please everyone, and sometimes you just need to go with what you believe is right for you.”
Paris was Michael’s only daughter.
He shared her with his second wife ️Debbie Rowe, and they also had a son Prince, now 23.
Michael also had a son, Blanket, 18, with a surrogate mother.
The Thriller singer died on June 25, 2009 at the age of 50.
An autopsy found that he died from a combination of drugs, with propofol and lorazepam named as the primary substances in his system, as well as midazolam, diazepam, lidocaine, and ephedrine.
His personal physician Conrad Murray served two years in prison for involuntary manslaughter after he was found to have administered the fatal dose of propofol on the day of his death.
