Paris Jackson and Gabriel Glenn have debuted their new musical group, The Soundflowers, with a self-titled EP that arrived on Tuesday (June 23) via Imperial.
The five-track effort will arrive next week, featuring the tracks ‘Your Look (Glorious)’, ‘Geronimo’ and ‘Notes On A Ghost’.Posting on Instagram, Paris wrote: “So insanely excited to share the news that my bands EP that we’ve been talking about for the last two years is finally ready to be released next week on june 23rd. We’re so eternally grateful for every one of you and all of the support and love you’ve shared with us. i really hope you guys enjoy it (sic),” the 22-year-old wrote.”
Paris, the daughter of the late Michael Jackson, formed the group with Gabriel after the pair met at Los Angeles’ Rainbow Bar and Grill where he was gigging with his band TrashDogs.
“We showed each other songs and even wrote a few on the spot. Everything fit together so naturally, from our voices to our songwriting style. I had never met someone who fit so perfectly with my sound.”
It was previously reported by Gay Star News that the 20-year-old actress had become concerned after Wade Robson and James Safechuck claimed they were sexually abused by Michael Jackson in the explosive two-part documentary.
She responded on Twitter: “I actually haven’t made any statements yet, especially regarding how it affects my work life.
“You guys are reaching a bit. At least this wasn’t a disgusting and attacking article though.”
Jackson subsequently urged fans to “chillax” and explained: “Y’all take my life more seriously than I do. Calm yo tittaaaaysss.”
In her first-ever in-depth interview, Michael Jackson’s daughter discusses her father’s pain and finding peace after addiction and heartache Paris Jackson gave what’s being called “her first-ever in-depth interview” to Rolling Stone this month, and it’s filled with the kinds of chatter you’d expect from the 18-year-old child of Michael Jackson and Debbie Rowe. She loved her father! He taught her about music! She feels like she “tried to grow up too fast”! But scattered among those charming, sad little memories about Michael (who died in 2009), things get serious—and then they get intense.
Paris Jackson turned 18 last April, and moment by moment, can come across as much older or much younger, having lived a life that’s veered between sheltered and agonizingly exposed. She is a pure child of the 21st century, with her mashed-up hippie-punk fashion sense (today she’s wearing a tie-dye button-down, jeggings and Converse high-tops) and boundary-free musical tastes (she’s decorated her sneakers with lyrics by Mötley Crüe and Arctic Monkeys; is obsessed with Alice Cooper – she calls him “bae” – and the singer-songwriter Butch Walker; loves Nirvana and Justin Bieber too). But she is, even more so, her father’s child. “Basically, as a person, she is who my dad is,” says her older brother, Prince Michael Jackson. “The only thing that’s different would be her age and her gender.” Paris is similar to Michael, he adds, “in all of her strengths, and almost all of her weaknesses as well. She’s very passionate. She is very emotional to the point where she can let emotion cloud her judgment.”
Later, she addresses rumors that Jackson is not her biological father, saying:
“He is my father,” she says, making fierce eye contact. “He will always be my father. He never wasn’t, and he never will not be. People that knew him really well say they see him in me, that it’s almost scary.
“I consider myself black,” she says, adding later that her dad “would look me in the eyes and he’d point his finger at me and he’d be like, ‘You’re black. Be proud of your roots.’ And I’d be like, ‘OK, he’s my dad, why would he lie to me?’ So I just believe what he told me. ‘Cause, to my knowledge, he’s never lied to me.”
But then this happens:
Paris is convinced that her dad was, somehow, murdered. “Absolutely,” she says. “Because it’s obvious. All arrows point to that. It sounds like a total conspiracy theory and it sounds like bullshit, but all real fans and everybody in the family knows it. It was a setup. It was bullshit.”
Paris says she remembers her father often occasionally “[dropping]hints about people being out to get him,” and compares her hunt for his theoretical killer to playing a chess game. “I’m trying to play…the right way,” she explains. “And that’s all I can say about that right now.”
Paris, please let us know when you’re ready to say more.
