Paris Jackson, daughter of the legendary Michael Jackson gave her first solo interview. She appeared on Ellen after Lindsay Lohan was a no show. Lohan supposedly missed her flight from Hawaii to Los Angeles. Speaking with Ellen DeGeneres they discussed her father, wearing masks and having a normal life.
Paris spoke about how she enjoys school and that it was a “different experience”. She went on to say how at first she wasn’t recognized by her classmates. She claimed it gave her “a chance to be normal”.
“They didn’t know who you were because you used to wear masks all the time.” Ellen stated. “When you would wear the masks do you remember thinking because obviously your dad did that to protect you so nobody would know who you are and you could go out and have a regular life? Do you remember wearing a mask and going this is kind of weird?”
“Yeah, I’m like, this is stupid, why am I wearing a mask?” Paris stated smiling and laughing at the picture of her and her siblings in their masks that Ellen has placed on the television screen. “But, I kind of realized the older I got, like he only tried to protect us and he’d explain that to us too.”
Hearing Paris talk about her father, Michael Jackson gives viewers an inside look at the King of Pop. Regardless of what your opinion of him is, it’s extremely obvious he was deeply loved by his children. Ellen asked her what the most memorable thing her father ever told her.
Replying quickly, Paris responded, “He said, ‘if I die tomorrow, always remember what I told you’. I took his advice and I remembered everything he told me.” Paris Jackson came across like a happy well adjusted teenager. She was polite and respectful and full of love and energy.
At the end of the interview, Ellen brought up the fact that Paris is in her first movie. She asked the young lady how she felt about acting and when she knew she wanted to be an actress. Paris’ face lit up and she stated, “I love acting. I knew when I was really young. I knew my dad could sing well but I didn’t know he could act.”
In the interview, Paris Jackson carried herself very well. Her family should be incredibly proud of her.
