Paris Jackson opened up about her sexuality during a Q&A with fans.

Jackson, the 20-year-old daughter of the late Michael Jackson, was answering fan questions on Instagram when one fan asked: “Are you bi?”

“That’s what you guys call it, so I guess, but who needs labels?” Jackson replied.

Her answer began to circulate the Internet and Jackson wondered why people were treating her sexuality as a new revelation.

“how many times have i publicly referred to the community as “my fellow LGBTQ+”? like even on stage. i’ve been apart of the community for years. i even mentioned having crushes on girls when i was 8 in a magazine before. i’ve been caught kissing girls in public. this is not news,” Jackson tweeted.

On Instagram, she added, “I came out when I was 14. I’ve referred to the community as ’my fellow LGBTQ+’ on stage before. I talked about having a crush on girls when I was 8 in my Rolling Stone article… Why are people just now saying this is news? And I’m not ’bisexual. I just love people for people. I don’t label myself, so please don’t label me.”

Jackson has been spotted kissing women over the years including model Cara Delevingne. The pair were openly affectionate towards each other in March.
