Michael Jackson‘s daughter is all grown up and even giving interviews on her own!!!
When asked about the most memorable thing her father ever said to her, Paris says he simply said: “If I die tomorrow, always remember what I told you. I took his advice, and I remembered everything he told me.”
In an new interview airing Thursday on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the 13-year-old also revealed that her dad always supported her, even her desire to act. “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,’ ” says Paris, who has landed herself a role in the upcoming fantasy movie Lundon’s Bridge and the Three Keys.
“We would do improv together,” she adds. “He would give us little scenarios. He would go, ‘Okay, in this scene you’re going to cry,’ and I’d cry on the spot.”
She also opens up about being made to wear a mask to go in public as a child. “I’m like, ‘This is stupid, why am I wearing a mask?’ ” she says. “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 claims that she now lives a relatively normal life. “I’m treated the same,” she says. “When I came to [her school], they didn’t know who I was. I was like, yes, I have a chance to be normal.”
