Paris Jackson Opens Up To Ellen DeGeneres
Beautiful, articulate and down to earth, Paris Jackson has granted her first interview to Ellen DeGeneres to speak openly about growing up as Michael Jackson‘s only daughter.
The 13-year-old, who just landed her first acting role, credits her late father as her main source of inspiration. “When I was really little my dad was in the movie Moonwalker and I knew he could sing really well but I didn’t know he could act,” she tells Ellen. “I saw that and I said, wow, I want to be just like him.”
The well-spoken teen also touches on how her and her brothers (Prince and Blanket) had to wear masks out in public as children, plus the emotional words the King of Pop left with her that she’ll never forget. “He said, if I die tomorrow, always remember what I told you and I took his advice and I remembered everything he told me.”
Paris Jackson’s interview with Ellen airs tomorrow, December 15.
