    Paris Jackson Posed Topless And Talked About Her Love Of Being Naked

    "I'm usually naked when I garden." — Paris Jackson, and prolly a lot of other people, tbh.

    You probably remember seeing photos of little Paris Jackson with her dad, Michael.

    But Paris is 19 now, and the model slash actress is all grown up.

    And on Friday, she went topless on Instagram to set the record straight about her stance on nudity. (Spoiler alert: Paris is down with it.)

    Here's what Paris wrote in full and, another spoiler alert, it's long — so I bolded things that are maybe more interesting? IDK, you tell me:

    "I'll say it again for those questioning what I stand for and how I express myself. Nudity started as a movement for going back to nature, expressing freedom, being healthier, and was even called a philosophy. Being naked is part of what makes us human."

    "For me, it helps me feel more connected to mama Gaia," she wrote. And for those who are unfamiliar, mama Gaia means mother earth.

    "I'm usually naked when I garden. It's actually a beautiful thing, and you don't have to make it sexual the way many hollywood stars (and the media) do. Not only is your body a temple and should be worshipped as so, but also part of feminism is being able to express yourself in your own way, whether it's being conservative and wearing lots of clothes or showing yourself. There's different ways of absorbing mother earth's energy. My favorites are earthing, which is absorbing the earth's vibrations from contact between the soil and your bare feet, as well as letting your naked skin absorb the rays of the sun."

    "The human body is a beautiful thing and no matter what 'flaws' you have — whether it be scars, or extra weight, stretch marks, freckles, whatever — it is beautiful and you should express yourself however you feel comfortable. If this makes some of you upset, I completely understand and I encourage you to maybe no longer follow me, but I cannot apologize for this in any way. It is who I am, and I refuse to shy away and keep my beliefs a secret. Everyone has an opinion and everyone has their beliefs. We don't always agree with one another, and that's okay. But again, we are all human, and to appreciate the things that other people do that make us human helps us feel connected. How can that be a bad thing?"

    Paris caused some controversy when she posted a photo of herself sunbathing topless recently to Snapchat, so this post was a response to that backlash.
