Paris Jackson has spoken out about the infamous masks that her father, the late Michael Jackson, used to make her and his other two children wear during public appearances until the time of his death in 2009. Paris, alongside brothers Prince Michael and Blanket, wore masks that covered most of their facial features throughout their young lives, and it's only now that one of them has sought to reflect on it in public.

Jackson was appearing on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' when she admitted to finding the masks, "stupid", saying "I'm like, 'This is stupid, why am I wearing a mask?'" However the 13 year-old went on to clarify her feelings, explaining further "But I kind of realised the older I got, he only tried to protect us and he'd explain that to us too." Indeed, it would seem that her father's overzealous parenting in fact worked out as intended, with the youngster admitting she wasn't really recognised upon attending her first proper school "I do have like a regular childhood. I mean, I'm treated the same," she said "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.'"

Paris has also recently been in the news after signing up for her first acting role in the forthcoming film 'Lundon's Bridge and The Three Keys', a film that's expected to be released sometime in 2013.
