Michael Jackson’s daughter, Paris Jackson recently took to her social media and clarified the misquotes regarding her new song, ‘Lighthouse.’ She revealed drawing inspiration from the bands of 90s including Nirvana.
She wrote on Twitter: “to clarify all the misquotes, the song lighthouse was sonically inspired by 90s bands like weezer and marvelous 3 that have a pop twist. the VISUALS are what were inspired by nirvana’s slither.”

Paris Jackson says she is exploring herself
Paris Jackson unveiled her brand new single entitled “Lighthouse” out now via Republic Records. “Lighthouse” was produced by singer, songwriter, musician, and producer Butch Walker.
The single is released alongside the official music video, which was inspired by the iconic video for Nirvana’s “Sliver.” In the video, Paris paid homage with a photo of Kurt Cobain—a full circle moment to the original video.
The song channels unbridled nineties rock energy as it harnesses the power of a classic alternative dynamic with a twist of its own. Paris‘ hypnotic verses give way to a chantable chorus, “I can feel the lights go low, but I don’t wanna let go now, maybe if I turn around you’ll see me, and what you used to be,” before a hummable guitar solo.
On the song, Paris said, “I continued to write about this same old heartbreak that ‘wilted’ is about. A lot of the new songs coming out are similar stories about the same person and heartbreak. I guess I’m just exploring different feelings. ‘wilted’ was a more melancholy record, and now I’m exploring more of the anger…”
Back in 2020, the daughter of Michael Jackson dropped her debut full-length album ‘Wilted’ after leaving her former musical group The Soundflowers. At the time, she also made her late-night debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, performing single “Let Down” live from the iconic Viper Room in Hollywood.
