Michael Jackson’s Daughter Paris Admits ‘Wearing Mask Was Stupid’ [Video]
The episode will air today on "Ellen". Check out the video below and more question's with Paris.
On Michael inspiring her acting:
"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.' "
On Michael's acting "lessons":
"We would do improv together. He would give us little scenarios. He would (say), 'OK, in this scene you're going to cry' and I'd cry on the spot."
On going to a traditional school:
"I love it. It's definitely a different experience. ... I do have like a regular childhood. I mean, I'm treated the same. When I came to Buckley (her school) they didn't know who I was. I was like, 'Yes, I have a chance to be normal.' "
On being forced to wear a mask as a child:
"Yeah, I'm like, 'This is stupid; why am I wearing a mask?' But I kind of realized the older I got, like, he only tried to protect us and he'd explain that to us, too."
On Michael's most memorable words to her:
"He said, 'If I die tomorrow always remember what I told you.' I took his advice and I remembered everything he told me."
