Paris Jackson is responding to all the chitter-chatter about Offset's permanent tribute to Michael Jackson. 

The Migos rapper gave his fans a close-up look at the tattoo back in September after his wife Cardi B talked about it during an interview. 

"I really need y’all to see the Michael Jackson tattoo he got on his stomach. I don’t even want to take it there. I will take it there, but it’s just like, y’all really have to see it. Because every single time I, you know... it just be looking at me," Cardi B said on HOT 97’s 'Ebro in the Morning' show.

The tattoo was inspired by an image taken from the King of Pop's 'Thriller' music video.

After seeing the ink, several fans joked that they would also be "traumatised" looking at MJ's "scary" face during an intimate moment with a partner.

Several months later, Paris is finally sharing her thoughts. Well, sort of. 

A TMZ photographer approached the 25-year-old for a comment about the Michael Jackson tattoo while she was getting into her car. 

"She's asking me questions. I guess Offset got, like, a tattoo for my dad... that's cool and all," she said in a video shared on Instagram.

Paris has several tattoos herself, including one dedicated to her late father. She has the word 'Bad' inked on her hand in the same font MJ used for the single's cover art. 

"I'm not really, like, in the business of commenting on what other people do with their bodies because it's none of my f***ing business," she added in her video.

The singer told her Instagram followers that she was just getting ahead of the TMZ story before they published something about the encounter. 

"I wanted to steal TMZ's headline from them."

Her fans praised her for getting ahead of the story.

"Love that you put it out there first so they won't twist your words!" one person wrote. Another fan commented: "Normalize beating the paparazzi to stuff."

Warning: The following Instagram post continues strong language. 

Offset is not the only famous person with a tattoo of Michael Jackson. Late South African rapper AKA showed off his two MJ tattoos on Twitter in November 2021. 

AKA, who passed away in February this year, had a tattoo of Michael as a child and as an adult. 

"Original MJ & my favourite MJ … a lot can happen in a lifetime," he wrote.
