Paris Jackson has had to fend off a lot of guff from people over the years related to how they think she should act as the late Michael Jackson’s daughter. But if we’ve learned anything about the 20-year-old, it’s that she doesn’t really plan on living her life based on what other people think or want from her. The latest example traces back to the 2018 Billboard Music Awards.
Paris’s aunt, the one and only Janet Jackson, performed at the star-studded ceremony, blowing people away with an incredible performance and looking much younger than her 52 years. It was an important night for Janet as she became the first black woman to receive the Billboard Icon Award (which, frankly, has us asking what took so darn long?).
A slew of famous Jacksons were on hand to celebrate Janet’s big night — her mom Katherine, sister Rebbie, and nephew Prince. But fans are ticked because her niece was a no-show.
