Paris didn't like 'stupid' masks

PARIS Jackson used to think it was "stupid" when her father Michael made her wear a mask.

The late singer used to make his children, Prince Michael, 14, Paris, 13, and nine-year-old Prince Michael II - also known as 'Blanket' - cover their faces in public to avoid the paparazzi, and although she once was annoyed by it, she then understood his reasoning.

She said: "I'm like, 'This is stupid, why am I wearing a mask?' But I kind of realised the older I got, he only tried to protect us and he'd explain that to us too."

Despite the immense fame which comes from being the daughter of the King of Pop - who died in June 2009 - Paris admits she was not recognised when she first went to a "normal" school.

During an appearance on the 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show', she said: "I do have like a regular childhood. I mean, I'm treated the same. When I came to [my new school] they didn't know who I was. I was like, 'Yes, I have a chance to be normal.' "

However, she does admit she is looking forward to taking on her first acting role in movie series 'Lundon's Bridge and the Three Keys', in which she plays the titular Lundon.

She said: "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. I was little. I was younger than 'Blanket'."

Paris also reveals she and her father would do improvised scenes together, and she always took on board any advice he gave her.

She added: "We would do improve together. He would give us little scenarios. He would say, 'OK, in this scene, you're going to cry,' and I would cry on the spot."

Discussing fatherly advice, she added: "He said, 'If I die tomorrow, always remember what I told you.' I took his advice and I remembered everything he told me."
