Paris Jackson gave some advice in light of the social distancing that's happening because of the coronavirus, COVID-19. Call your friends, she says. 


Michael Jackson's daughter Paris Jackson has had her share of emotional battles over the years. These days, though, she seems to be doing much better. 

On Wednesday, TMZ caught up with the legend's daughter, who gave some meaningful advice for persons who might have anxiety as a result of self-quarantine during COVID-19.

Paris gives advice

The outlet's reporter, named Joe, asked Paris about her thoughts as to how people should deal with anxiety. She answered: "I think it's pretty tricky because, as humans, we are by nature very social creatures." 

The model and actress added: "I think it helps that we live in a day and age where communication is so easy." She described how humans can get in touch with others with a few clicks over any distance. 


Use expression to cope

Paris, 21, went onto describe how everyone is different in their coping skills. For her, that's painting. She advised everyone to use their own form of expression to get through the situation. 

Towards the end, Paris reminded viewers that they should call their friends regularly and avoid disconnecting emotionally. The two then parted ways with a slightly awkward goodbye. 


Paris films music video

Earlier this month, Paris was like everyone else and going about business as usual. For her, that meant filming the first music video with her band, The Sound Flowers. 

Paris' boyfriend and bandmate, Gabriel Glenn, did some skateboarding for the upcoming video. Younger brother Blanket, 18, was also present to help out the couple. 


Making her own way

In her own way, Paris is following in the footsteps of her musical father, who died in 2009 when she was just 11 years old. Until then, Paris had grown up with her dad on Neverland in Los Olivos, California. 

As a child, Paris was hidden from the spotlight by Michael. These days, however, she's not only taking on the entertainment industry but is speaking up for herself when it matters.

Paris defends her dad

Back in September, for instance, Paris clapped back at rapper 50 cent when the latter threw shade at her father. In particular, she addressed 50 cent's comments about Chris Brown doing backflips, unlike Michael.

Under the since-deleted post, Paris noted:  "True legends don't need to exert outrageous amounts of energy just to grasp attention. Stillness, my friend, stillness."
