Paris Jackson Defends Backlash For Nude Photo with Another Nude Photo

Iconic entertainer Michael Jackson’s daughter Paris Jackson caught some backlash over the past few days for snapchatting herself sunbathing naked. The daughter of the King of Pop stands her ground and answers the negative with a second nude photo.

The original revealing photo shown above began all the controversy that prompted the 18-year-old to turn to Instagram to release a defending statement and follow-up photo of her naked once again on the same deck with the sun beaming down on her and giving her a beautiful glow. In the post below, Paris issues the following statement to critics, saying:

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?
