Paris Jackson, daughter of the late pop icon Michael Jackson, recently took a stand against critics who had unkindly described her as ‘old and haggard’ in a video she had shared. In a spirited response, Paris posted a video of herself without a shred of makeup, highlighting her natural complexion, and reminding everyone that she is only 25 years old.
The incident occurred when Paris shared clips from a Christian Louboutin event she attended during Paris Fashion Week. The post drew some harsh comments from a few critics, leading Paris to retaliate with a makeup-free video. She stated, ‘This is no filter, no makeup, and regular lighting for the people that wrote really sh***y comments about how old and haggard I look in my last video.’ Adding a touch of humor, she concluded, ‘I am literally 25. Just young and haggard thank you very much.’
The video was accompanied by an audio clip of a man saying, ‘Whoa. Okay.’ Paris appeared without any makeup, her hair casually tied up in a messy bun. She wore dangling earrings and a casual top as she tilted her head around before giving a sheepish sideways glance.
Her response was met with an outpouring of support from her fans. Keke Palmer was among those who expressed their support, writing: ‘I love you!’ Other fans also chimed in with positive comments like ‘Screw those people, you looked amazing,’ and ‘If this is old and haggard then what am I?!’
The original video that caused the stir featured Paris at a Christian Louboutin event, dressed in a plunging mocha outfit. Although she faced some negativity, many fans defended her appearance, blaming the lighting for making her look older. They reminded others that everyone is different and that Paris is a young, beautiful woman.
Paris has been participating in Paris Fashion Week and attended YSL’s Beauty Party MYSLF in addition to the Christian Louboutin event. For the YSL event, she opted for a long-sleeved brown turtleneck dress and layered a camel-colored leather jacket over it, paired with cream peep-toe heels.
This incident comes on the heels of Paris filing a restraining order earlier this month against an alleged stalker who reportedly scaled her home’s fence and peered through her windows. According to Paris, the same man had been sending her unwanted messages since December 2019. The most recent alleged home invasion occurred on August 23, when the intruder purportedly made it to her backyard before being accosted. Paris was not at home at the time, but a friend who was staying on the property witnessed the trespass.
Paris Jackson’s response to her critics is a powerful reminder of the importance of self-confidence and embracing one’s natural beauty. Whether you’re stepping out with eyelash extensions or opting for eyebrow threading for a more refined look, it’s essential to remember that women’s beauty is not defined by makeup or any particular beauty standard. It’s about feeling comfortable in your own skin and owning your unique style, just like Paris did when she attended the Christian Louboutin event in Scottsdale, Arizona, looking effortlessly chic with her lashes and natural glow.
