"Paris is in a very happy place, she is pursuing her creative interests as an 18-year-old woman and feels like this is finally her time," a source told Entertainment Tonight.
"She wants to try modeling, acting and has been songwriting. She is grateful for the opportunities ahead," the insider added.
Jackson is the only daughter of Michael Jackson and Debbie Rowe. She slammed Joseph Fiennes' portrayal of her late dad for the new Sky Arts series Urban Myths last week, and the episode has since been canceled.
