Happy in my own skin: Paris Jackson wants people to stop Photoshopping her pictures 

JB Lacroix/WireImageParis Jackson is over being Photoshopped. 

The daughter of Michael Jackson aired out her grievances on Twitter, writing, "i appreciate everything y'all make for me, i enjoy every single edit i see. but please stop lightening my skin to make my look more white. and please stop darkening my skin to make me look more mixed." 

"i am what i am. i'm aware of what i look like and i['m] finally happy with it." 

Paris told Rolling Stone in an 2017 interview that she considers herself black, although "most people that don't know me call me white."

She added, "I've got light skin and, especially since I've had my hair blond, I look like I was born in Finland or something."

The Calvin Klein model also said that late father "would look me in the eyes and he'd point his finger at me and he'd be like, 'You're black. Be proud of your roots.'"

She explained, "I'd be like, 'OK, he's my dad, why would he lie to me?' So I just believe what he told me. 'Cause, to my knowledge, he's never lied to me."

Paris stars in the new action comedy Gringo, in theaters on Friday.
