Paris Jackson is on her way to supermodel status after signing with IMG Models!
While most of us know Paris Jackson as the daughter of music icon Michael Jackson, she is now embarking on a career of her own after signing with prestigious IMG Models! ICYDK, IMG also represents supermodels Ashley Graham, Hailey Baldwin, Gigi and Bella Hadid, Jasmine Tookes, Candice Swanepoel, Joan Smalls and Hari Nef! Talk about being in great company!
And Paris, 18, is obviously aware of this and stoked about her new representation. She said, “Thank you @imgmodels I feel very lucky and blessed”. And IMG announced today on their Instagram account, “NOW REPRESENTING: #ParisJackson (@parisjackson)! ([email protected]_sorrenti x @crfashionbook [email protected]) #CR10Paris #,#IMGstars.”
This comes as Paris said she graduated high school in 2015 and spent a year in community college. There, she took time to decide what she wanted to do for a career. Her childhood was marked by trolls who made negative comments about her appearance and she was subject to constant criticism online. (And we all thought MJ was crazy for covering his children’s heads up when they were little.) As a result, she has found modeling to be cathartic. She said, “I’ve had self-esteem issues for a really, really long time. Plenty of people think I’m ugly, and plenty of people don’t. But there’s a moment when I’m modeling where I forget about my self-esteem issues and focus on what the photographer’s telling me – and I feel pretty. And in that sense, it’s selfish.”
We forget just how difficult it must be to grow up in the public eye under the scrutiny of so many. Paris was and is a beautiful person. It is too bad online trolls made her feel unattractive as a child; no one should be subject to such bullying online or otherwise.
In addition to modeling, Paris is interested in designing clothing and helped to create the glamorous Moschino gown that she wore at the Grammy’s last month. And she’s trying her hand at acting and will appear in an upcoming episode of Star on FOX. This drama follows the lives of three young singers on the road to success.
Congratulations to Paris on her newfound career!
