Paris Jackson doesn’t care about what the internet has to say about her appearance.

The singer-songwriter took to Instagram to shut down trolls who left negative comments regarding her looks on a recent Instagram post.

In response, the “Hit Your Knees” musician shared a bare-faced clip with a strong message written over it.

“This is no filter, no makeup and regular lighting for the people that wrote really s---ty comments about how old and haggard I look in my last video,” Jackson wrote across the Instagram Reel uploaded on Thursday. “I am literally 25. Just young and haggard thank you very much," she added sarcastically.

This isn’t the first time Jackson has addressed the unwarranted criticism.

After sharing an Instagram birthday tribute for her late father, Michael Jackson, on Aug. 29, which would’ve been the King of Pop’s 65th birthday, she noticed comments about her armpit hair (shown in the video as she tied up her hair) that she later shut down on X, formerly known as Twitter.

“i wasn’t tying my hair up to show off my armpit hair,” she wrote. “i’ve not shaved it for years and forget it’s there all the time. get over yourselves.”

She concluded her tweet: “i was pulling my hair up to show my glass cutting jawline.”

Jackson has worked on treating herself with kindness and, in a SPIN magazine interview published last August, she said that she felt "the happiest and healthiest I've ever been."

"When I look in the mirror, I don't hate what I see anymore … I try to treat myself kindly," she said. "I have some bad days where I'm not as kind to myself as I would like to be … I don't do anything perfectly, but I try to progress daily."

She not only changed her lifestyle habits (she revealed she took up rock climbing at her local gym, stopped smoking half a pack of cigarettes and hopped off her "very nocturnal" routine), but also began to respect herself as she would a loved one.

"Because I see myself as a friend, when I don't maintain a boundary or when I don't set one, it's like bailing on a friend," she said. "I feel horrible if I bail on a friend, so if I do that to myself, I'm also bailing on a friend, and that doesn't feel good anymore."
