It has been over 2 years since the children of the King of Pop lost their father. Now they’re attending private school and growing into their more regular lives. Paris Jackson stopped by The Ellen Degeneres Show and shared the fact that she enjoys attending a school where most kids didn’t know who she was. Paris admitted that she didn’t like the way her late father protected their identity with masks:
ELLEN: “Do you remember wearing a mask and going this is kind of weird?”
PARIS: “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 a brighter note, Paris is getting ready to make her acting debut in an upcoming film called Lundon’s Bridge and the Three Keys. When asked what inspired her to start acting, she replied, “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.’” Watch entire clip below.
