(AllHipHop News) The daughter of Michael Jackson has given a rare in-depth interview with Rolling Stone.
Paris Jackson used the cover story to speak about her often discussed parentage.
MJ's ex-wife Debbie Rowe is widely accepted as Paris' mother, but many people have questions about her father.
Unlike her brother Prince Jackson, Paris has no problem publicly stated she confidently believes Michael is her biological dad.
"He is my father," says Paris. "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."
The 18-year-old is so convinced about her direct lineage to the King of Pop she identifies herself as his ethnicity.
"I consider myself black," declared Paris.
She continued, "[My 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."
"Most people that don't know me call me white," added Paris. "I've got light skin and, especially since I've had my hair blond, I look like I was born in Finland or something."
In the RS article, Paris also discussed being sexually assaulted, attempting suicide, her current relationship with Rowe, and growing up with one of the most famous people in the world as her father.
Another notable segment of the interview focused on MJ's 2009 death. Paris believes the entertainment icon was murdered.
"It's obvious. All arrows point to that. It sounds like a total conspiracy theory and it sounds like bullsh-t, but all real fans and everybody in the family knows it. It was a setup. It was bullsh-t."
