In her place, was an equally, if not more, exciting guest: the daughter of the late Michael Jackson, Paris.
Paris, 13, sat down for her first solo interview to chat with the funny talk show host about everything from her life with Michael to her budding acting career.
Jackson was asked about the masks she and her brothers would wear in public. “Do you remember thinking ‘This is kind of weird’?” asked Ellen.
“I’m like, ‘This is stupid why am I wearing a mask?’ but I kind of realized the older I got, like he only tried to protect us and he explained that to us too,” she told Ellen.
The talk show host asked the teen about her schooling and how wearing masks helped to keep her from being recognized.”Do people there, treat you differently?” asked Ellen.
“I’m treated the same,” said Jackson, adding that when she went to school they “didn’t know who I was, I was like ‘Yes I have the chance to be normal.”
She also told Ellen about the memorable advice the King of Pop gave her before he died in 2009.
“He said ‘If I die tomorrow, always remember what I told you,'” she said. “I took his advice and I remembered everything he told me.”
She also talked to Ellen about her big screen debut, and the inspiration she got from her father. She’s set to star in “Lundon’s Bridge and the Three Keys.”
