Don’t be fooled. Paris Jackson didn’t forget to shave her underarms before the 2017 VMAs — she is ditching the razor for good. The daughter of the late Michael Jackson is embracing her body hair and proudly letting it grow out, and she doesn’t care what people think.
“If you’re not competing with your brother over who can grow longer leg hair wyed,” she jokingly captioned a photo of her unshaven legs on Instagram. She disabled comments on her social media so it’s unclear how her fans really feel about the “competition.” Watch the video below to see the controversial photos.
Paris, 19, continued her body positive mission on the VMAs red carpet where she showed off her armpit hair in a sheer Dior dress. She joked about her decision to stop shaving on Twitter, sharing a Game of Thrones meme, blaming winter for ditching the razor. However, this is nothing new for the famous teen.
In the past, she has opened up about her decision to embrace her body hair. “I didn’t realize that people were going to get so upset over my armpit hair,” she said on her Instagram stories. “I didn’t realize that was such an issue. It is so funny.”
“why don’t you shave?”

She continued. “People are really mad. I wish I could post some of these responses. You can just tell how angry and infuriated these people are… I love hair, and sweat, and BO. I f–king love it, I think it’s great. Some people think that it’s like super disgusting, especially on girls, but every human body does it. It’s natural. Get over it.”
Paris is just the latest celeb to go au naturel, joining Bella Thorne, Madonna, and Miley Cyrus. Do you, girl.
