Over A Quarter Million Sign Petition To Cancel Movie Starring Paris Jackson As Jesus, Plus Paris Talks "Going Through Hell"
Paris Jackson has done a pretty good job staying out of the spotlight following her father's passing, but the daughter of the King of Pop is going through some rough waters as the movie she's set to star in is getting called to be canceled.
Paris Jackson reflects on music
Paris Jackson started up her very own FacebookWatch, Unfiltered With Paris Jackson and Gabriel Glenn, and talks about the cathartic process of music, and her life on the road with her beau.
In the show, Jackson opens up about her past struggles and reveals how music has healed her through times of trauma.
"It’s been eleven years and I have been through hell," she said.
"Whether it was him [Michael Jackson] passing or all the s--t that has happened to me in my life, if I don’t talk about it or if I don’t put it in the music, it’s going to completely ruin my life and it’s going to own me," she continued.
She then went on to say while it may be obvious music is special to her, the kind of music may be unorthodox.
"Everyone in my family does music," she said.
She continued, "I mean, I’m a Jackson. It makes sense that I’m a musician but like… a Jackson doing folk indie?"
The show also follows her relationship with Gabriel Glenn and follows the two of them traveling in a van and making music.
Glenn said of Jackson, "I knew I was walking towards a head-over-heels fall. I wanted to spend every day and every night with her."
You can watch all of their adventures on FacebookWatch.
An identity crisis for Jesus
Along with her FacebookWatch show, Paris is also set to star in a new film as none other than Jesus Christ. However, the idea of the young starlet portraying the religious figure isn't sitting well with many.
So far, there have been over a quarter million signatures on a petition calling for the cancellation of the movie.
The movie titled Habit has been labeled as "Christian phobic garbage," and in a separate petition by One Million Moms it has gained 69,000 signatures, deeming the film as "sacrilegious."
The movie will also feature Bella Thorne starring as "street-smart, party girl with a Jesus fetish gets mixed up in a violent drug deal and finds a possible way out by masquerading as a nun," according to the New Zealand Herald.
Paris will play lesbian rockstar with a nose ring and, you guessed it, who also happens to be Jesus Christ.
Gavin Rossdale also will appear in the film, and the producer said the film intentionally features many musicians as it is centered around music, and will have "a rocking soundtrack."
Jackson has yet to comment on the naysayers of the film.
