Video! Paris Jackson Talks to Ellen: Wearing a Mask Was 'Stupid'

After Lindsay Lohan bailed on her appearance on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," Michael Jackson's daughter Paris was quickly booked.

In her first solo interview, Paris talked about her pop star dad, and even opened up about what it felt like to wear masks in public. She recalled, "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'd explain that to us, too."

Thanks to the disguise, Jackson said her childhood felt normal because her classmates didn't recognize her.
