Paris Jackson has been getting a lot of attention in recent weeks, and that’s no accident.
In the past month alone, Paris has covered Rolling Stone and Harper’s Bazaar.
She’s sat for dozens of interviews with outlets both big and small. (Ironically, the unique pressures seems to be her favorite topic of conversation.)
We seem to be in the midst of a full-blown Paris Jackson media blitz, and it doesn’t look like it’ll be letting up any time soon.
The only question is: why?
Paris doesn’t appear to have a project to promote; she’s not bringing attention to any particular cause, and she frequently gripes about only being known as Michael Jackson’s daughter despite the fact that she hasn’t done anything that would merit this level of attention for some other reason.
Like Kim, Kylie and the OG Paris, Ms. Jackson is famous for being famous, which can be enough to build a career on in 2017.
The curious thing is that her persistently insists that that’s not the type of career that she wants.
For now, at least, Paris’ personal and professional lives are inseparable, and she reportedly has a team of 20 full-time employees working round the clock to keep her in the spotlight.
The end game is unclear, but the strategy is apparent:
Tidbits about Paris’ “private” life have been surfacing at the rate of about one a day for the past week, and her team is going all in with today’s “leak.”
Apparently, Paris has been using a “celebrity dating app” called Raya (might as well score some product placement bucks out of your shameless self-promotion!) to hook up with “VERY hot American girls.”
We’re not sure why their nationality is important, but apparently Team Paris would like you to know that she’s both bisexual AND a patriot, dammit!
“Paris has made no secret of having crushes on girls in the past and wants to keep her options open,” a source tells Radar Online.
But don’t expect an official coming out any time soon.
It seems that on the topic of her sexuality, Paris is happy to let the anonymous “insiders” on her payroll do the talking for her:
“She’s not interested in making a big statement about her sexuality,” says the source.
“She thinks it’s unnecessary in 2017, but she’s having fun chatting to sexy women online.”
Paris broke up with Michael Snoddy back in February, and all of her public relationships have been with men, but she’s frequently hinted that she would be open to the idea of dating a woman.
Talking about her sexuality with Rolling Stone last month, Paris commented:
“My dad raised me in a very open-minded house,” she told Rolling Stone Magazine.
“I was eight years old, in love with this female on the cover of a magazine. Instead of yelling at me, like most homophobic parents, he was making fun of me, like, ‘Oh, you got yourself a girlfriend.’”
So currently, the plan is not to come out publicly, but based on the subtlety of Paris’ current media campaign, you can expect her to ask Miley Cyrus out on Instagram before the week is out.
