Paris Jackson loves being naked and she doesn’t need her fans’ approval.
After the 19-year-old model, actress, and daughter of pop icon reportedly came under fire on social media after posting a photograph of herself tanning shirtless, Jackson shared her thoughts on nudity with her Instagram followers to silence her haters once and for all.
On Friday, to put the critics in their places, Jackson posted yet another photograph of herself with no shirt on, along with a lengthy, incredibly honest caption explaining her stance on nudity.
She explained her belief that nudity is healthy, and a movement that goes back to nature and an expression of freedon. “Being naked is part of what makes us human,” she wrote. “I’m usually naked when I garden. It’s actually a beautiful thing and you don’t have to make it sexual the way many Hollywood stars (and the media) do.”
i’ll say it again for those questioning what i stand for and how i express myself. nudity started as a movement for ‘going back to nature’, ‘expressing freedom’, ‘being healthier’ and was even called a philosophy. being naked is part of what makes us human. for me it helps me feel more connected to mama gaia. i’m usually naked when i garden. it’s actually a beautiful thing and you don’t have to make it sexual the way many hollywood stars (and the media) do. not only is your body a temple and should be worshipped as so, but also part of feminism is being able to express yourself in your own way, whether it’s being conservative and wearing lots of clothes or showing yourself. there’s different ways of absorbing mother earth’s energy, my favorites are earthing which is absorbing the earths vibrations from contact between the soil and your bare feet, as well as letting your naked skin absorb the rays of the sun. the human body is a beautiful thing and no matter what “flaws” you have, whether it be scars, or extra weight, stretch marks, freckles, whatever, it is beautiful and you should express yourself however you feel comfortable. if this makes some of you upset i completely understand and i encourage you to maybe no longer follow me, but i cannot apologize for this in any way. it is who i am and i refuse to shy away and keep my beliefs a secret. every one as an opinion and every one has their beliefs. we don’t always agree with one another and that’s okay. but again, we are all human, and to appreciate the things that other people do that make us human helps us feel connected. how can that be a bad thing?
She went on to explain that self-expression is an important part of feminism and reminded followers that “the human body is a beautiful thing and no matter what ‘flaws’ you have.”
Though Jackson is completely pro-nudity, she did take the time to acknowledge she understood why her post could have upset some people. However, she did not apologize for the photographs, and instead invited those people to consider unfollowing her on social media.
Jackson also reminded everyone on Snapchat that there are far more important things besides her tanning people should be worried about, like entirely nude beaches, or you know, politics.
The daughter of Michael Jackson has been having quite the exciting year, landing her first movie role earlier this month and signing a deal with modeling agency, IMG Models back in March, so we have a feeling Paris’ social media presence will soon be on the rise.
