Paris Jackson: 'I Appreciated The Veils'

MICHAEL JACKSON's daughter PARIS has revealed she "appreciated" the efforts her late father went to to hide her and her brothers from the public, but the masks and veils he had them wear on shopping trips weren't always comfortable.
In an exclusive Jackson family garden party chat, TV queen Oprah Winfrey grilled Paris and her brothers Prince Michael and Blanket and a group of nieces and nephews about living life as a Jackson and attending school.
While Blanket and his big brother seemed both shy and unwilling to chat, talkative and polite Paris was only too happy to open up about the trio's dad, who died last year (Jun09).
When Prince Michael revealed that his father placed veils over their faces so "when we did go out without our dad then nobody would really recognise us," Paris added, "He tried to raise us without (us) knowing who he was, but that didn't really go so well."
Asked if she liked the secrecy and the masks and veils, she stated, "I appreciated it... It wasn't always comfortable."
Later in the taped chat, which aired on TV in America on Monday (08Nov10), Paris told Winfrey no one knows the real Michael Jackson.
She explained, "I kinda felt like no none understands what a good father he was. I'd say he was like the best cook ever... He was just a normal dad... He made the best French toast in the world."

I am so happy that Oprah did this interview with Michael's children. Just knowing that they are happy and living with Mrs. Jackson it makes me happy that they are going to be okay.Michael was a great father, and his children let us know what we already knew that he was GREAT!!!!

Michael would be very proud of his children. They are so mature. It was very obvious they loved their father very much, and that he loved them.

Michael Jackson would have been proud of his children. They is well spoken of especially when it come down to their father. I am so happy that God has and still strengthen the entire Jackson's families.

I thought Prince 1, Paris and Prince 11, were looking great, they are a great bunch of good looking kids. I am glad they really did not open up to oprah, there was no trust there. but I wonder what were all those other brats doing there, it's not about them, it was about Katherine, and Michael's children, not the whole clan. My heart went out to Katherine, her pain came thru loud and clear, my prayers are with you Katherine, paris, Princ 1 and Prince Michael 2. Your dad has not been forgotten, and lives thru you all. oprah looked like a fool, pretending that she really cares, came thru phony.

The interview should have never taken place.....MICHAEL'S CHILDREN looked wonderful, my heart went out to Katherine as her pain is loud and clear............Oprah looked out of place, and what is WRONG with that woman, is she that jealous of MICHAEL that she has to go after his children and his mother now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!and I cried through the whole interview..........This was so wrong putting these three wonderful polite darling beautiful children for millions and millions of people to see them, and MICHAEL'S dear mother whom he loved very much...the father Joe looked very sad and tired...........

Well said Jacqueline. I don't think I would want to be interviewed by Oprah. You would have to be very careful about what you said. I used to like her and I was blinded by what kind of a person she is. But not anymore.Paris is such a sweetheart and it is very obvious that she loved her father very much. That should speak volumes. Michaels children are very well behaved I would be very proud to have them as my children,as I know Michael was. The thought of putting veils and masks on the kids sounds odd to us, but I totally understand why he did it. He wanted to protect them. He wanted them to be able to go out and have a normal life. That is part of the reason I disagree with Michael's family for putting them in the spotlight. Michael did everything in his power to stop that from happening. RIP Michael.

This 3 children are beautiful, smarts, and polite just like his father, Paris is a beauty and so mature; I liked to see them again but Michael does not would let that this interview happen and LESS with OCRA WINFREY... I think that Katherine may respect the decisions of her son, now that he is not in here.
