Paris Jackson to appear on 'Ellen'

We’ll hear from one of Michael Jackson’s children on Thursday's "Ellen."

According to People, MJ’s daughter Paris, 13, will give a revealing interview, discussing the infamous masks she and her siblings wore, among other things.

"I'm like, 'This is stupid, why am I wearing a mask?' " she says of wearing the face coverings (along with her brothers Prince, 14, and Blanket, 9) for so many years. "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, who has an upcoming movie role, says her dad inspired her desire to act. "We would do improv together," she recalls. "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."

Paris will also reveal the most memorable thing her late father ever told her. "He said, 'If I die tomorrow, always remember what I told you,'" the teen said. "I took his advice and I remembered everything he told me."

Luckily, Paris says she’s adjusting to her new, more public life. "I'm treated the same," she says. "When I came to [school], they didn't know who I was. I was like, yes, I have a chance to be normal."

Lindsay Lohan did have an "Ellen" interview scheduled to tape on Tuesday to air on Thursday, but the 25-year-old actress missed her flight back from Hawaii and couldn't do the taping as planned, although she did offer to reschedule.

    Who cares If MJ is her bio father or not. HE TOOK CARE OF HER AND THAT MAKES HIM HER FATHER. Look at all the black babies whites getting so I do not see nothing with the other way around. MJ is her daddy and that is all that matters. Paris is more well behaved that some of people's children who degraded MJ about his parent skills. Often times, people who degrade others are degrading because there is something wrong in thier own lives. Go Paris. Proud of you and I am sure MJ is as well. He was a good man who cared for ALL PEOPLE regardless of color.

    Just because he used some product to make his skin white does not mean he wa genetically white. o for his kid to have Blonde hair and blue eyes is RIDICULOUS.

    These are NOT Michael kids.

      WHo cares if they are not his bio children or not. Brad and Angie kids are not all theirs. Do you have a problem with them? MJ took care of these kids and that alone MAKES THEM HIS KIDS. End of story. ANd this does NOT have to be about race either. My step father help took care of me and we are the same race; and he is MY FATHER because he took care of me.

    Regardless of Michael Jackson being her Father OR not!..He loved and raised her as his child, so he is her Father...

    Regardless of people's feelings about MJ, it was very obvious from his funeral and the heartfilled words from Paris, that he was a "Good Father" to his children.

    Michael-Just your presence on this earth showed us how great GOD really is.
    Because you loved others more than yourself; we fell in love with ALL of you.
    What you understood was that YOU WERE creating "HISTORY", because it was YOU that was being used as vessel to bring all of manking together through your music and humanitarlan acts.
    YOU knew that Martin didn't get to the Mountaintop"; but he saw it; as GOD showed Moses The Promised Land.
    Thank You for leaving us your beautiful children; because part of YOU is still with us.
    Some say that when we see you again you will be "perfect", but what YOU didn't understand was that youwere darn near.

      Ground Zero, a firefigher and a doctor life is no more important than anyone else. MJ was a entertainer and inflence alot people, help people be happy, stop some folks from committing suicides because of his music, etc. That is just as important as what a firefighter does or a doctor (heck a doctor killed MJ. Go figure). All of us are IMPORTANT. God does NOT say "think a firefigher is more important than a entertainer or a trash man". We all are important.

      Don waste your time. Stupid folks makes those kinds of comments because they would NOT dare say it in anyone's face. YOu can say the internet allows some folks who are cowards to express their feelings under FAke names. Who cares what they think. That is easy for a coward to do.

      These children are normal children who lost someone very close to them. Doesn't matter what u think he did he was their dad and they loved him. Take your snide remarks and prejudiced ideology and stick it where the sun don't shine. These kids are not responsible for anything that u think Michael did and they should not have to be bullied by the likes of you people. Paris, Prince and Blanket good luck to u all in your lifetime and don't let the imbaciles in this world dictate who you become.

I find nothing creepy about this. This is his daugher (bio child or not). He raised her and he seem to have done a Great job. I think some folks who have no good kids who degraded MJ are jealous his kids are wonderful and RICH and their children are BROKE and terrible.

    First of all for everyone that is saying all those ugly things, for heaven sake you talking about a child and saying that MJ death was good for his kids you need to take a personal inventory of yourself and ask how would you like if the tables were turned and people were saying the same about you and your kuds. In my opinion you cannot blame the king of pop for trying to shield his children and protect them from the ugliness of this world. My prayer is that they are not exploited and they grow up to be the best as they can and make their dad proud.

    RIP MIchael Jackson thank you al that you gave us and God help and protect his children may they grow up well although they lost their father.

He was not a child molester. He loved children. Its the critics that molested him of his dignity. He was a kind gentle person. God bless his children may they live in peace and happiness.

    She is very cute and has a lot of charisma, just like her dad, I wish her well. however, I don’t mean to sound dramatic but this producer she’s signed up with is very shady. Her brothers are trying to discourage her from making this film. Paris Jackson also met Julian Rouas in August for the Jackson Tribute Perfumes … another sordid venture that went down the toilet. The road to fame is paved with hard knocks and sleazy characters like Julian Rouas and Stephen Sobisky. See the photos …

      I Know! Maybe Michael adopted the first two, but they are NOT his biological kids, they have to realize this too, now the younger one, abusively called a Blanket, does look like Michael, but Michael didn't like being black, that"s why he changed his appearance to get rid of his black nose, lips, skin, etc., that's why he chose white woman Debbie to be their biological mom, not a black woman, he wanted white kids! Blacks don't even want to be black, I feel sorry for them all.
