Paris Jackson Hated Michael Jackson's Obsessive Seclusion

Paris Jackson has told Ellen DeGeneres that she was disturbed as a child by lengths that her dad, Michael Jackson, went to in order to protect his children’s privacy. Paris said that she felt it was “stupid” when her father made her wear a mask.

Michael, wanting his children to be spared the over-exposure he suffered as a child superstar, 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 for protection from the paparazzi.

Of course Michael was not exactly thinking too clearly, was he? With names like Prince Michael and ‘Blanket’ and a dad taking Propofol to get to sleep at night did Michael Jackson think he was doing his best to provide a normal environment?

Paris 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.”

On the ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’, Paris 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.'”

All that lip service paid to being normal aside, Paris is excited and looking forward to taking on her first acting role in the 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.”

The irony is that now that her Dad is gone, Paris is all over the TV and is becoming a major celeb herself… . Was that Michael’s goal – was that what he would have wanted for her?

    What a pathetic article this is. You are deliberately misrepresenting what @ParisJackson:twitter  said. She never said she was “disturbed”. She said she initially felt “stupid” but understood why as she got older – and it seems to have worked!

    What a horribily twisted article. Paris never said that she was “disturbed” by or “hated” anything that her father did. Yet another example of society’s inability to be objective when it comes to this poor man & his family. Anybody can see by looking & listening to this girl that she is well brought up & well adjusted, that was thanks to her father, a man who got no peace in life & it seems will have none in the afterlife either. Sad.

      i agree with what you said here about Paris Jackson she loves her dad and MJ’S sons love their dad as well and it is so sad that some of these people still have so much hate in them

    Normal? No Paris, please do not ever become normal, ever. Whatever neat little trick up your sleeve you have pull it out now. A horse sack over your head, sure I can go with that. Missing gloves with an extra finger sprinkled with fake diamond tinsel? Yes I could believe that too? A rope attached to an umbrella that would let you fly away on a blustery day, yes yes Paris I could desperately go for that. What’s the reward in being normal? I’d rather have you fantastical. Any stunt, nose job, hysterical fit, self induced addiction I could go for that, anything Paris to keep me locked away in permanent self disbelief in front of my chair would suit me just fine.

    This is the best article to show to the public exactly how the media makes baseless lies and spreads ignorance that those oh too ignorant masses swallow up cos theyre just too damn lazy to find the truth. Madness… literally.

      Exactly. The media is messed up and make harmful and ridiculous lies. Like Michael said “Just because its on the news doesn’t mean its the gospel.”
