Paris Jackson gave a rare televised interview and recalled her father Michael Jackson. The 13-year-old’s appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” has already been taped and will air this Thursday. Upgrade from Lindsay’s scheduled appearance.
Paris admitted that as a younger child she felt it was “stupid” wearing a mask when she went out in public with her famous father.
Jackson, who died aged 50 in 2009, would sometimes give his children masks to wear to protect them from the frenzy of media and public attention that accompanied their every appearance.
“Yeah, I’m like this is stupid, why am I wearing a mask?” Paris told show host Ellen DeGeneres.
“But I kind of realized the older I got, like, he only tried to protect us and he’d explain that to us too.”
