Paris Jackson doesn’t understand what all the fuss is about regarding her sexuality.

Michael Jackson’s 20-year-old daughter made headlines over the weekend after seemingly coming out when interacting with fans on Instagram. When one person asked Jackson if she’s bisexual, she responded, “That’s what you guys call it, so I guess, but who needs labels?”

After her answer started making the rounds, dozens of articles picked it up with headlines like, “Paris Jackson reveals she’s bisexual during fan Q&A.” However, the model and actress took issue with stories declaring this was breaking news. Jackson wrote on her Instagram story, “I came out when I was 14.”

In another post on her Instagram Story, Jackson added, “And I’m not bisexual. I just love people for people. I don’t label myself, so please don’t label me.”

She also took to Twitter, writing, “i’ve been caught kissing girls in public. this is not news…”

Jackson was most recently linked to model Cara Delevingne.
