Paris Jackson Celebrates Her Father Michael Jackson’s Birthday With An Old Interview
Michael Jackson’s daughter, also a musician herself Paris Jackson shared a video on her official Instagram stories to celebrate his late father’s 63rd birthday. Although her fans would expect a post dedicated to the King of Pop, Paris only shared footage from an old interview of his father where he joked about being on tour.
As many of you know already, Michael Jackson is regarded as one of the most significant cultural figures of the 20th century thanks to his over four-decade career during which he immensely contributed to fashion, dance, and music. On top of these, Jackson’s publicized personal life turned him into a global figure in popular culture over the years.
The list of accomplishments of the King of Pop seems to be endless as he is the most awarded music artist in history as well as being one of the best-selling music artists of all time, with estimated sales of over 400 million records worldwide. Jackson has 39 Guinness World Records, including the ‘Most Successful Entertainer of All Time’ and he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame not once, but twice.
Unfortunately for his fans, the ‘Thriller’ singer passed away due to cardiac arrest after his personal physician Conrad Murray had given him various medications to help him sleep at his rented mansion in Holmby Hills, Los Angeles. Jackson’s death was caused by a propofol overdose on June 25, 2009, at the age of 50. Following the death announcement, websites slowed down and crashed from user overload which was another proof of the legendary musician’s impact on the world.
Yesterday was the King of Pop’s 63rd birthday if he were still with us today and countless artists from a variety of genres celebrated the icon via social media posts. While everybody was expecting his daughter, Paris Jackson, to pay tribute to his late father on his birthday, she shared an old video of an interview on her official Instagram stories.
In the video, Michael Jackson was asked about his opinions on touring and according to the musician, he didn’t particularly enjoy touring. Since his fans would like to hear otherwise, the interviewers asked Jackson to give another answer to fulfill his fans’ desires. After he said he would ease his statement, the King of Pop instantly said he loved touring following the announcement of recording which made the entire interview team laugh.
Paris Jackson paid tribute to his father with this sincere footage and although fans were surprised to see a story at first, they were actually thrilled to see Paris showing the genuine side of his father on such a special day. While captioning the story, the young musician added his father’s birthday and put an infinity symbol as his passing date.
