The reasons behind Jackson's supposed suicide attempt are unknown, but a source close to the family speculated that one reason may be that the she wasn't allowed to attend a Marilyn Manson concert scheduled for June 6th at Gibson Amphitheater. 

Jackson tweeted lyrics from "Yesterday" by the Beatles last night: "Yesterday all my troubles seemed so far away / Now it looks as though they're here to stay," though many song lyrics appear in the teen's Twitter feed.

June 25th will mark the fourth anniversary of her father's death. Paris Jackson's grandmother, Katherine Jackson, is currently in the middle of a civil trial over a wrongful death suit she filed against the concert promoter AEG Live.

“Long Walk Home”

Bruce Springsteen | 2007

When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
