Why We Dig Birthday Girl Paris Jackson… In 15 Clicks

Paris Jackson touched the hearts of millions around the world when she bid a tearful farewell to her famous father Michael Jackson at his memorial service in July 2009.

“Ever since I was born, daddy has been the best father you could ever imagine,” she said, fighting back tears as relatives consoled her.

Today, Paris turns 15 years old and despite enduring a childhood in the spotlight, where she often had to wear a mask when out in public, she is firmly establishing her own identity.

Like every teen chameleon, Paris loves changing her style — and hair color — to fit her every mood.

Recently, she showed that despite her privileged upbringing, she was just like any other high schooler when she was photographed doing a dance routine on the basketball court in her cheerleading uniform.

And the social savvy trendsetter — who has over 1 million followers on Twitter — enjoys talking about everything from her brothers to her hobbies and life experiences.

Paris, who was raised on Neverland Ranch with her famous father and brothers Prince Michael, 16, and Blanket, 10, was born through surrogate mom Debbie Rowe.

After Michael Jackson died of an overdose in 2009 both she and her siblings were put under the permanent guardianship of her grandmother Katherine Jacksonwho’s raising them with her cousin TJ Jackson.

Currently a pupil at a swanky private Los Angeles High School Paris has transformed into a lively teenage girl who loves grunge music and rock ‘n’ roll.
