The Jackson family has always been in the limelight, but it used to be for musical talents more than for family feuds over the late King of Pop’s will or custody issues. While all the whirlwind has no doubt been a challenge for Michael Jackson’s children — best known as Prince, Paris, and Blanket — Paris at least is focusing her efforts on remembering her father rather than on current family affairs.
Yahoo reports that the 14-year old Paris Jackson has created quite the large collage of images of her father, at the center of which is a large black and white photo of Michael, taken many years before his death. Paris Jackson posted the shrine (seen above) on Twitter.
Paris Jackson entered the public sphere at her father’s funeral in 2009, causing many a teary eye as she said, “Ever since I was born, Daddy has been the best father you could ever imagine … I just wanted to say I love him … so much.”
Clearly time has only made the heart grow fonder as Paris Jackson tweeted her thoughts for anyone who thought her shrine to her father’s memory was too over the top.
“Someone commented on my pic saying “obsessed much?” yeaa u better believe it .. a whole wall of his pics is the LEAST i could do
#dedication,” she wrote.
Paris Jackson told the Global Christian Post that the shrine took more than three hours to put together. The collage of photos is on display in her room and appears to be above her bed where she can see it any time.
“I just remember something and I smile,” she said.
Paris Jackson and company made headlines recently after a confrontation with family members of the whereabouts of her grandmother and guardian Katherine Jackson. All turned out alright though as it turned out Katherine was vacationing in Arizona.
So what do you think of Paris Jackson’s shrine to her dad? Over the top? Or as she put it, #dedication?
