Michael Jackson - Paris Jackson Was Baffled By Childhood Face Masks

Michael Jackson's daughter Paris never understood why the King of Pop insisted that she and her brothers wore face masks in public.
During her early years, Paris and brother Prince rarely stepped out in public without their shrouds - because the Thriller hitmaker didn't want his children to be photographed, but she admits her late dad never really explained why he was so adamant about keeping his kids covered up.
It's only now that the 14 year old can see the sense of the disguises, and she's grateful for her dad's smart thinking.
In a candid new TV interview with Oprah Winfrey, Paris Jackson says, "I was really confused, I didn't get why I was wearing a mask. But I understand it now... why my dad would want our faces to be covered."
But she admits she and her brothers were allowed to go out unmasked if their super-famous father wasn't with them: "When we went out without him, we wouldn't be recognised, we would have a normal childhood."
The full TV chat will air in America on Oprah's Next Chapter on Sunday (10Jun12).

Oprah is sure getting press out of this, isn't she? The promo on this is everywhere. Too bad Michael isn't around so she can thank him. Yeah, right....................

I agree...Oprah didn't give a crap about Michael...but now she wants ratings for her network. She's using Paris just like she used Michael...shame on you Oprah!!!!

I would be baffled by Oprah's calling MJ a pedo but obviously she doesn't care, she is there for promoting herself not for Michael, no one is using her, she is 14, old enough to decide not to go on her show.
