Paris Jackson Talks About Her Dad, Career, and Being Normal

Michael Jackson's oldest daughter, Paris, replaced Lindsay Lohan on the Ellen DeGeneres show the other day. Paris gave a surprisingly fantastic interview about her life, her father, and the advice she has learned from him.

"He said, 'If I die tomorrow, always remember what I told you.' I took his advice, and I remembered everything he told me." Paris also went on to talk about how from her dad's acting career (he was in the movie Moonwalker) she found a passion for acting. "We would do improv together," she said, "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." It seems like the acting lessons payed off because Paris has a role in the upcoming movie Lundon's Bridge and the Three Keys.

Perhaps the most interesting part of the interview was when Paris talked about how her father raised her and her siblings. Michael famously made his children wear masks when they were out in public. Paris thought it was really weird, "I'm like, 'This is stupid, why am I wearing a mask?' " she said, "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 said that today she lives a normal life and is treated like everyone else at her school, she seems really happy about it too. We're happy for Paris and we wish her all the best in the world. (people)
