Paris Jackson took to social media on Monday (July 16) to address the topic of her sexuality.

It all started when a fan asked Jackson if she was bisexual. "That's what you guys call it so I guess, but who needs labels," the 20-year-old responded in a since-deleted Instagram comment, via PEOPLE.

"How many times have I publicly referred to the community as 'my fellow LGBTQ+'? like even on stage," Jackson later tweeted. "I've been apart [sic] of the community for years. I even mentioned having crushes on girls when I was 8 in a magazine before. I've been caught kissing girls in public. This is not news..."

Jackson later clarified on her Instagram Story: "I came out when i was 14.. i’ve referred to the community as ‘my fellow LGBTQ+’ on stage before. i’ve talked about having a crush on girls when i was 8 in my Rolling Stone article. There are pictures of me kissing girls online. why are people just now saying this is news?”

"and i'm not 'bisexual' i just love people for people," she added. "i don't label myself so please don't label me. thank you!"
