In the first episode of her documentary series “Unfiltered”, Paris Jackson spoke more openly than ever about her love life and sexuality.
The multi-part documentary series “Unfiltered: Paris Jackson & Gabriel Glenn” tells the couple’s musical journey. Together, Paris Jackson (22) and Gabriel Glenn are the indie-folk duo The Soundflowers, who recently released their first EP. Tuesday (June 30th) is the first episode of the documentary published via Facebook Watch. It is entitled: “Who is Paris Jackson?” In around 18 minutes, the daughter of the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson (1958-2009), provides private insights into her emotional world. She speaks openly about her sexuality and reveals intimate details that she has not yet revealed to the public.
“I’ve been with more women than men”
For example, Paris tells Jackson that she was drawn to women at a young age. But since she mostly saw women and men together on television, these feelings would have made no sense to her. Papa Michael recognized this early, when she was eight or nine years old, because she was more interested in the women in the gossip magazines. The 22-year-old also says that she used to think she was going to marry a woman. “I’ve been with more women than men,” said Paris Jackson.
The public knows nothing about most of their relationships, she says. Only three long-term relationships with men are known. But she cannot really define her own sexuality. “I wouldn’t call myself bisexual because I didn’t only date men and women. I was in a relationship with a man who had a vagina,” reveals the 22-year-old. For them, it’s not about what a person is “in their pants” but about their character.
Gabriel “Gabe” Glenn met her two years ago. Apparently it was love at first sight, because within a week she had moved into his van with him. Gabe is their home for them. The last home she knew was given to her by her father. About the eleven years after his death in 2009, she says right at the beginning of the episode: “I’ve been through hell!” If she doesn’t talk about it or process it in her music, it would destroy her life. Then she is “a slave to this pain” and she wants to prevent that.
For a long time Paris Jackson did not allow herself to try it as a musician. For fear of only living in the shadow of her famous father and his legacy. The pressure seems enormous. Will The Soundflowers Succeed? More episodes will follow.
