Paris Jackson Did Her Entire Vogue Interview Via Text
The King of Pop’s daughter is quickly becoming the Queen of Millennials. As if it weren’t enough that Paris Jackson recently signed a major modeling contract, joined Kendall Jenner’s clique, wore a Michelle Obama T-shirt with a flannel on a red carpet, and rejected heels in formalwear, she’s now changing the way Vogue does interviews. For her first-ever cover story for the fashion bible, Jackson completed her entire interview via text message.
According to E!, the idea to communicate through texts was Jackson’s, and Vogue Australia’s editor-in-chief, Edwina McCann, agreed because it “seemed appropriate for someone of her generation.”
In the text convo with Alison Veness, Michael Jackson’s only daughter opened up about her goals and sense of responsibility. “One of the first interviews where my words haven’t been twisted, and they get all the info straight from the source!” she captioned an Instagram shot of the cover.
As for those straight-from-the-source words? “I really want to leave a positive imprint in the fashion world, mostly regarding the media and the stereotypical beauty standard that is blasted all over every magazine you see, every article that pops up on your phone screen, every billboard you see while you’re driving down the street,” Jackson wrote during the text convo. “I already have many young girls looking up to me and I want to be something their parents are OK with them looking up to.”
Jackson’s full interview with Vogue Australia will hit newsstands on June 26.
