Paris Jackson Thinks It Was “Stupid” That Dad Michael Jackson Made Her Wear A Mask

During a visit to The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Paris Jackson, the daughter of Michael Jackson, said that it was “stupid” that her father used to make his children wear masks.

Paris wore a fedora not unlike the hats her dad used to wear and she had a pink streak in her hair. She was noticeably more mature than she appeared onstage at father Michael’s memorial service, where she made her first public statement.

She described her life as “regular,” but did note that, looking back, she finds it curious that she and her siblings used to cover their faces in public.

“I kind of realised the older I got he only tried to protect us,” she said.

Paris said she that her classmates didn’t recognize her when she first enrolled in the L.A. private school she attends, largely due to the fact that she had been kept out of the public eye. Some of the other children of celebrities who have attended the school include Paris Hilton, Nicole Ritchie and Matthew Perry.

Paris also said that she’s interested in acting. She recently landed a role in the upcoming fantasy movie Lundon’s Bridge and the Three Keys.
