VMAs: Paris Jackson Impersonates Trump, Speaks Out Against

'We must resist, ' she continued, flaunting her trim figure in a see-through dress over a matching Christian Dior bra and tiny shorts combination.

Jackson, the 19-year-old daughter of the late Michael Jackson, presented the award for best pop song - but not before addressing the nation's tense political climate.

One woman was killed and at least 19 more counter-protestors were injured on Aug.12 when neo-Nazis and white supremecists came together in Charlottesville for a "Unite the Right" rally. We have zero tolerance for their violence, their hatred and their discrimination.

She went on to name girl group Fifth Harmony as winners in the category.

Jackson' speech was the first to touch on the events of Charlottesville, while host Katy Perry joked that the world was "on fire" and in the "apocalypse" during her opening monologue.

Her comments came after clashes at a far-right led rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, saw Heather Heyer, 32, killed when a vehicle was rammed into her and other counter-protesters. Police have identified James Alex Fields Jr. as the suspected driver and the 20-year-old has been arrested in connection with Heyer's death.
