WATCH: Paris Jackson's Instagram rant

Paris Jackson has taken to Instagram to address her critics, filming a lengthy rant in which she acknowledges, "no matter what I do, it will never be enough".

 

The 19-year-old daughter of late musician Michael Jackson speaks candidly to the camera in a series of Instagram stories clips, saying "I'm not the type of the person that likes to brag", but the haters still find a way to bring her down despite her being humble.

"I guess this is kind of mainly for the people that don’t agree with who I am, and don’t agree with what I do, and don’t agree with my morals… and just spend their time trying to hurt me," the model and actress says in a rambling series of videos on her Instagram.

"My following is mostly my father’s following who are much older… and have conservative views."

Reminding people she is only 19 years of age, Paris continues: "I like to think I’m on a pretty good track. For someone who is still a teenager and doing the things I’m doing."

She says she understands many don't like her "tattoos, the profanity, free spirit and outspokenness", but she is doing the best she can to live a life she and her father would be proud of.

Yet she also acknowledges that even what she's saying right now won't satisfy all the critics, and that even adopting children and working with a charity "like Angelina Jolie" wouldn't put her in their good books.

"No matter what I do it will never be enough. You will never be satisfied even though I’m 19 and even though I’m working my a** off, it’s not enough."

She finishes the rant off with a video of her smoking a hand-rolled cigarette.

Paris' superstar singer father died in June 2009 as a result of a cardiac arrest caused by a combination of prescription drugs. Paris was only 11 years of age at the time.

In an interview with Rolling Stone magazine earlier this year, she revealed she had considered committing suicide several times after being raped by a "much older complete stranger" when she was just 14.

Taking its toll on her psychologically as she spiralled into depression and drug addiction, the teen said she tried to commit suicide several times.

"It was just self-hatred... low self-esteem, thinking that I couldn't do anything right, not thinking I was worthy of living anymore," she candidly confessed to Rolling Stone about her personal struggles.

In 2013 Paris was hospitalised over a suicide attempt. Before that she had attempted to kill herself and engaged in self-harm, but it was this incident at the age of 15 that made her severe psychological battle public knowledge.

Paris also said that her upbringing impacted her emotional state to a great extent, especially considering she was homeschooled when her father was alive.

She struggled to adjust to high school, and after her last suicide attempt, went to a therapeutic school in Utah.

She also admitted that she had been battling depression and anxiety up until that point "without any help".

Now at 19, Paris is back on track, saying she is sober but still smokes menthol cigarettes.

Keeping a focus on her career, the model is making a transition into acting.
