So this is how you "talk" to the youth of today, no more face-to-face, phone or even email correspondence it's social media, text message or prepare to be ignored. As the cultural barometer of fashion-forward teens today, whatever Teen Vogue is doing is what the kids are into or will be into next and when the Teen Vogue team do their entire Paris Jackson interview via text message, grown ups, take note.

For the second instalment of their new quarterly format, Teen Vogue called on MJ's daughter, Paris Jackson to front their music issue and brought in the big fashion guns to photograph her: ex Yves Saint Laurent creative director and celebrated fashion photographer, Hedi Slimane. The issue includes the first in-depth interview the 19 year-old has given, revealing why she decided - after the incredible privacy lengths her dad went to, including having her wear a mask in public - to make her career in the public eye. In the interview Paris says, "I honestly used to have no motivation whatsoever to be in the public eye; it scared me... But after a long time of thinking, I started to see to really see the kind of impact I already have on people, how I was born with a platform, and I didn't want to waste it."

Jackson also revealed that aside from modelling and acting (she's currently filming an as-yet untitled Nash Edgerton project) unlike her king of performing dad, her musical ambitions lie on the writing side. Jackson told Teen Vogue she's already penned a song for her "dream musician" Paul McCartney to sing. She notes though, "I really don't plan on doing anything with my music."
