MJ's Daughter 'Felt Stupid' Wearing Masks In Public
Paris Jackson has shed some light on her life with the King of Pop...
Michael Jackson's daughter Paris has confessed in her first ever solo TV interview that she felt "stupid" after being made to wear masks in public by the King of Pop.
The 13-year old, who spoke about her famous father on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, was forced to hide her face in order to protect her identity, right up until MJ passed away in June 2009.
When asked about the masks, Paris revealed: "I'm like, 'This is stupid, why am I wearing a mask?' But I kind of realised the older I got that he only tried to protect us. He'd explain that to us too."
Paris also claimed that following her father's passing, she now leads a "regular childhood" and instead of being home-schooled, she now attends Buckley School in Los Angeles, adding: "They didn't know who I was. I was like, 'Yes, I have a chance to be normal'."
During her appearance on Ellen, Paris also confirmed that she will star as Lundon O'Malley in fantasy movie Lundon's Bridge and the Three Keys - admitting that her late father inspired her to become an actress.
Paris said: "When I was really little, my Dad was in the movie Moonwalker, and I knew he could sing really well, but I didn't know he could act. I saw that and I said, 'Wow, I want to be just like him'."
Last month, Michael's former doctor Conrad Murray was sentenced to four years in prison over the Thriller singer's death - the maximum term for involuntary manslaughter.
