Paris Jackson got a chance to hang out with one of her music idols, who also just so happened to be one of her late father's collaborators. 

Michael Jackson's 19-year-old daughter attended Stella McCartney's Autumn-Winter 2018 collection launch on Tuesday night in Los Angeles, California, where Paul McCartney, the designer's father, was performing.

Jackson totally fangirled over the Beatles band member, who happily posed for a photo with her, which she promptly shared on Instagram.  "I cried like a godd**n baby," she captioned the moment. 

Jackson was very vocal about her love for McCartney and his music in an interview with Teen Vogue last year. "He’s the love of my life," she said in praise of the 75-year-old singer. "I actually already wrote a song I’d like him to sing, but it probs won’t happen."

A little history on McCartney's relationship with Jackson's father, the two collaborated on several songs in the '70s and '80s, including “Say Say Say,” “The Girl Is Mine,” “Girlfriend” and “The Man.” However, in 1985, the King of Pop outbid McCartney for The Beatles' back catalog. The collection was rolled over into a joint venture that the Jackson 5 frontman formed in 1995 with his Sony-based label, Sony/ATV Music Publishing, and last January, McCartney sued the company, seeking to reclaim copyrights to his band's 267 songs.

Despite differences that may have come up between her dad and McCartney in the past, Jackson still has a lot of love for The Beatles and other classic bands and musicians. "[Music has] gotten me through the toughest of times and the best of times," she told the magazine"It’s brought me comfort when I was alone and has brought even more joy when I’m in good company. Music is everything to me."
