Forget Paris Jackson's ultra-famous father – or her equally famous family, for that matter. The teenager wants to be taken on her terms.
"I love my dad, and I'm proud to be his daughter," Jackson, 14, tells Glamour for its October issue. "I just don't think the title 'M.J.'s daughter' fits me."
Jackson maintains an active Twitter presence, and has already booked her first movie role – in the upcoming film Lundon's Bridge and the Three Keys.

Brüno, the preening, Austrian celebrity wannabe created by Sacha Baron Cohen, finally gets to meet singer La Toya Jackson when Brüno is released on DVD on Nov. 17.
After the sudden death of Michael Jackson, a scene in which Cohen, disguised as the flamboyant Brüno, conducts an outrageous interview with an unsuspecting La Toya was hastily cut from the film. The scene, removed before the theatrical release, earlier had been viewed by critics and test audiences.
In the 90-second comic scene, now included as an extra on the Brüno DVD, La Toya, 53, arrives at a hilltop house in Los Angeles to be interviewed by Brüno, an alleged Austrian TV infotainment star. She fails to recognize Cohen, the British-born star of Borat, beneath his disguise and heavy accent.

Four months after the death of their father Michael Jackson, his kids Paris, 11, Prince 12, and Blanket, 7, have turned to therapy to cope with their grief, Michael's sister LaToya Jackson tells London's Mirror newspaper.
"Prince just doesn't want to speak about it," LaToya said. "I do worry about him very much."
Meanwhile, his sister Paris "thinks and talks about her father all the time. She's doing very well, writes a lot and she wears his shirts every day," she said. "They still smell of him and it helps her feel close to him."
Michael's youngest child, Blanket, "is just a very sad, shy little boy," LaToya said. "He cries – he really does cry. It's so painful for him. No one can bring his daddy back and it hurts so much. They all go to therapy and I truly hope Prince especially will be able to open up."

For his burial, Michael Jackson made his final appearance looking every inch a star.
"He was dressed in all white pearl beads going across, draped across. A beautiful big gold belt. Like ... a belt that you win being a boxer," the late King of Pop's older sister, LaToya Jackson, tells Barbara Walters in an interview to air Friday night at 10 on ABC's 20/20. "Full makeup ... His hair was done beautifully, his makeup was done beautifully."
According to his sister, he looked "absolutely fabulous."

Janet Jackson and sister LaToya arrived at their brother's rented Holmby Hills mansion on Saturday as moving trucks carted off some of the singer's – and his children's – possessions.
A source told PEOPLE that the belongings of Michael Jackson's three children were being removed from the house and taken to the Jackson family home in Encino. The children have been holed up with grandparents – Joe and Katherine – at the San Fernando Valley house since the singer died on June 25.
Janet was at the home during the move, while LaToya showed up later in the day. Some of the singer's prized possessions were also being removed from the house for safekeeping, the source said, because there is concern that someone could break into the home.
