Hours after fans called out Paris Jackson for not supporting her aunt, Janet Jackson, during her Icon Award performance at the just-concluded Billboard Music Awards, the actress has now taken to her Instagram to write the critics a long letter.
In case you missed how the drama started: Janet Jackson gave her first television performance in nearly a decade at Sunday’s Billboard Music Awards, where she became the first black female to receive the Icon Award.
But Paris Jackson, who is the daughter of Michael Jackson, only wrote ‘Ditto’ on her Instagram Story, stirring heated reactions form folks who were not happy with her behaviour.
Well, she has now responded, and in the long letter, talked about the wrinkles in their family fabric.
Every family has their moments of trauma, heartbreak, separation, love, oneness, tribe, pain, everything. EVERY FAMILY. My family, specifically, and a good number of others…well, our drama is broadcasted worldwide through media. But that doesn’t mean our family issues are any different from yours. Ours are just made public. Every level has another devil. Every life has their own s–t to deal with. We ain’t inferior or superior to y’all. We’re all f–king human. So let’s act like it. I appreciate any and every person reading this and I’m grateful for everything in my life, positive and negative.”
Well, what do you think?
