Michael Jackson's daughter, Paris Jackson, is finally ready to share her life with the public, and she's starting off by sharing some never-before-seen footage of her and her famous father in the trailer for new Facebook Watch documentary, Unfiltered. The 22-year-old recently released the first official trailer for the docuseries, which will follow her and her boyfriend Gabriel Glenn on tour with their band, Soundflowers. The sneak preview includes some throwback footage of a young Paris talking to her superstar father about what she wants to be when she grows up.
"What does Paris want to be?" MJ asks her. "I want to do what you do," she responds. "What do I do?" he asks. "You dance and sing," she says. Present-day Paris can then be heard explaining how much fame has impacted her. "You see a kid grow up in the public eye but you forget I am human," she says, as footage of her getting hounded by paparazzi appears on screen. "I was against letting the world in because it wasn't a choice. I wasn't ready then. But I feel like I'm ready now." Paris goes on to mention the "pressure" she has faced to "follow in [her] dad's footsteps" as well as constantly getting "compared" to him and "scrutinized." However, she hopes that this documentary will help guide young people toward "self-acceptance and courage."
