Even though Paris Jackson‘s father was (and still is) the King of Pop, we never really paid much attention to her until, well…we lost her father. Seeing the bright-eyed beauty’s pain televised at Michael Jackson’s memorial service placed a spotlight on the 14-year-old’s life. We know how the story goes–the children of the rich and famous are often at the center of either a scandal or a life riddled with the spoils of being privileged (*ahem* Willow Smith).

There was a time when a Paris of a different famed family (the Hiltons) ruled the tabloids and we cared about her every move–from her carrying a too-tiny pooch in her purse to stopping for gas–we were hooked. It seems the new Paris on the scene is causing the same frenzy.

We think Paris Jackson’s superstar pedigree is bound to push her into inevitable fame, making her the new “It” girl. Here’s why:

1. The Big O

When you’ve made it to the Oprah show–well, her Next Chapter, you’re a big deal. Paris appeared on Oprah’s Next Chapter and chatted about everything from her wearing a mask in her younger years to being bullied in school. She was poised, articulate and engaging. Oprah basically introduced us to Paris Jackson and we loved who we met!

2. Legendary Beef

Nothing says “It” girl like having grown men–or rather, legendary rockers like Motley Crue’s Nikki Sixx-taking a jab at your late father, days before the anniversary of his death, then apologizing publicly on Twitter. PS–follow Paris on Twitter @ParisJackson!

Check out Nikki Sixx’s apology below:

3. We’re Watching You

Paris’ every move is now being clocked more than ever before by the paparazzi! She’s been spotted with a “mystery boy–” who’s being labeled the 14-year-old’s boyfriend. There have been full-out stories on the teenager’s new look–bangs. Now we’re all starting to care about the most mundane parts of her life. She’s arrived.

Are you keeping your eyes on Paris Jackson? You should! She’s about to blow up. We promise.
