Posted on March 19, 2017
Paris Jackson covers the April 2017 issue of Harper's Bazaar. She channels Madonna in the cover shoot photographed by Jean-Paul Goode. Paris is wearing Chanel earrings, cuff and ring on the cover with a black sleeveless Versace dress.The cover says "I was perfect in my dad's eyes" under Paris Jackson's name. Paris was not happy with this headline and she scrubbed it when she posted the cover on her Instagram. ET reports that Paris also wrote a tweet that said, "When magazines lie to you and tell you they're not gonna make the headline about something, but go right ahead and do it behind your back :)." She later deleted the tweet.
Paris did make the comment in the interview. She says, "When I was a kid, I was with my dad and my two brothers. Growing up, I was treated as the favorite because I was the only girl. I was the princess; I was perfect in my dad's eyes." However, just because she said it doesn't mean she wanted that comment on the cover.
Paris also opened up about homeschooling and having to learn social skills a different way than public school children. She says, "The first 12 years of my life I was homeschooled. Which means that the only interactions I'd ever had were with family members or other adults." She also said, "[I} didn't have social skills. I had to force myself to learn so fast. For the past six years, I've been learning how to communicate. And I think I've gotten pretty good at it."
Paris also talked about using her fame for her good. She says, "It's a complicated answer. It's a feeling of doing something important, that actually matters, that's going to impact people. Plenty of times I've thought about not doing anything in the public eye and having my own private life. Then I started seeing how everything in the world is going. And I feel like each year it's getting worse."
Here is a second cover from the magazine with Paris channeling Madonna in Dior and jumping in front of the Eiffel tower. This is the subscriber cover.
