Paris Jackson has given a rare glimpse into life away from the spotlight with her dad, the late Michael Jackson.
The singer, who died in 2009, was dad to daughter Paris and sons Blanket and Prince.
The 22-year-old told model Naomi Campbell on her YouTube channel No Filter that away from the fame her dad made sure they all stayed grounded.
Confessing that they did experience the luxuries that come with being the children of a superstar, she added that they got to see all aspects of life as they traveled and lived all over the globe.
‘I was raised everywhere, the East Coast, the South, UK, Europe, the Middle East, we grew up everywhere,’ Paris shared.
When Naomi commented on how ‘intelligent’ she sounded, Paris replied: ‘It was definitely a blessing and privilege to experience all of that at such a young age.
‘My dad was really good and making sure we were cultured, making sure we were educated and not just showing us glitz and glam.
‘Like hotel hopping, five star places but there was also…we saw everything, we saw third world countries, we saw every part of the spectrum.’
‘You can teach someone that through books but if you can see it there’s nothing more valuable than that,’ Naomi added.
Paris’ brother Prince has spoken in the past about how their father always encouraged them to follow their passions.

He told Extra: ‘My dad was always a strong believer in going for what you want and “go follow your dreams and chase your dreams…”
‘So for us to be able to kind of sit there and hopefully make a career about talking about film and looking at film – my brother wants to be a director, I love producing…’
He continued: ‘It’s just, it’s definitely, there’s some form of guidance there that kind of is ushering us into the next generation.’
Paris is following in the King of Pop’s footsteps and going into music, releasing new single Let Down in October ahead of her solo album Wilted.
