She added: ‘It’s impossible to please everyone, and sometimes you just need to go with what you believe is right for you.’
The singer, whose father is the late pop legend Michael Jackson, penned 11 songs for the album, each one revealing a highly intimate and personal aspect of her life experience.
One of Jackson’s main assertions was the use of metaphors in her music as a way of confronting her own feelings regarding each song’s subject matter.
‘I find when I don’t only focus on life in the literal sense, I can better process all my thoughts and emotions,’ shared the Chanel model.

In speaking about the vulnerability that she features on the album, the singer noted that she was not afraid to make her experiences public, stating that, ‘I’m honest about my feelings which is something you can never say is wrong or bad.’
She also expressed that, with regard to expectations and criticism, ‘I think that people can critique a lot of things, but you can’t critique how someone feels.’
On the topic of looking back, Jackson stated that she was grateful for her experiences up to the release of her album, and felt as if her life would not have been the same had they not happened.
‘I believe everything that’s happened to me has been part of making me the person I am today. I wouldn’t take away any of that pain I went through because, without it, I wouldn’t be me.’

She stated in the first episode of the series: ‘The public doesn’t know about, like, most of the relationships I’ve been in.’
