The interview touches on numerous intimate details about growing up with the King of Pop, like the now infamous face masks MJ had his children wear. Of the paparazzi shields, Paris remembers thinking: "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."
When Ellen asked the teen to recall any memorable advice Paris' famous father gave her, she revealed Jackson's haunting words, "'If I die tomorrow, always remember what I told you.' and I took his advice," said Paris. "And I remember everything that he told me."
As for her forthcoming film debut, Paris insists it was a long time coming. "I was really little. My dad was in the movie 'Moonwalker' and I knew he could sing really well, but I didn't know he could act. I saw that and I said, 'Wow, I want to be just like him.' We would do improv together. He would give us little scenarios. He would say, 'OK, in this scene, you're going to cry,' and I'd cry on the spot."
