Paris Jackson, the eldest child of the late King of Pop Michael Jackson, scored her first solo interview with Ellen DeGeneres thanks to Lindsay Lohan missing her flight out of Hawaii and thereby missing her Tuesday taping. So instead of discussing a Playboy spread, Ellen had a chance to sit with a well spoken 13-year old Paris Jackson.
Paris shared her father’s advice, her desires to act and exactly what she thought about those masks she wore as a younger child. Paris stated she was inspired to act when after watching her father’s performance in Moonwalker.
“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.'”
Paris who landed a feature role in upcoming fantasy film “Lundon’s Bridge and The Three Keys,” explained how Micheal further fostered her interest by engaging her in improvisation.
“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.”
Paris even gave the audience some insight behind why she and her brothers wore masks when they were kids. She admitted that although she hated it initially, she later came to realize that their father was only trying to protect them
“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.”
Paris summed up the interview by sharing some of Michael’s fatherly advice.
“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 has grown to be more than just the curious figure we once noticed behind a mask. She is poised, intelligent and ready to explore her own talents. Congratulations Paris! Paris Jackson’s appearance on Ellen will air tomorrow.

Normal? No Paris, please do not ever become normal, ever. Whatever neat little trick up your sleeve you have pull it out now. A horse sack over your head, sure I can go with that. Missing gloves with an extra finger sprinkled with fake diamond tinsel? Yes I could believe that too? A rope attached to an umbrella that would let you fly away on a blustery day, yes yes Paris I could desperately go for that. What’s the reward in being normal? I’d rather have you fantastical. Any stunt, nose job, hysterical fit, self induced addiction I could go for that, anything Paris to keep me locked away in permanent self disbelief in front of my chair would suit me just fine.
It is unbelievable to see how this little girl has grown into such a beautiful young woman; after all her father is Michael Jackson! To know the values he instilled in his children is just amazing and to know that she has remembered everything her father ever taught her is even more amazing!! This was a wonderful interview and I think it shows the world that Michael Jackson wanted what was best for his children, and did what he thought was the best for them. I think he did a great job and he is truly missed!!!! Paris Jackson is a WONDERFUL young lady and if her dad could see her now I know he would be glowing with sunshine……..WHAT A WONDERFUL INTERVIEW. Thank you Ellen for allowing us to see this amazing young woman!!! <3
