Michael Jacksonâ€™s daughter Paris opened up to Oprah Winfrey in a very candid and heartfelt interview. It is in my opinion an amazing interview that shows the young girl in whole new light.
It has been three years since not only her fatherâ€™s death but since Paris Jacksonâ€™s life completely changed. Over the weekend she appeared on â€śOprahâ€™s Next Chapterâ€ť where she talked about some pretty personal topics, including how she is still coping with the loss of her dad.
Not only does she have her grief to deal with but the 14-year deals with some of the same problems as other kids her age as well as ones that are hard for anyone to imagine. For example Paris admitted to being the victim of bullying and cyber bullying. She however did not play the victim saying â€śThey try to get to me with words, but that doesn’t really work.â€ť
Along with the bullying she admitted to having security with her 24 hours a day and the affect that has on her life. She revealed that some of her friends are ok with the security being around and some are not so cool about it. The teenager herself even admitted that it is unfortunate that she must live her life with security guards.
Paris also answered the question that so many folks have been asking, â€śWhat was the deal with the masks?â€ť Well as it turns out she too didnâ€™t really understand the whole mask thing at the time. However now she gets it and offered this insight to the whole thing.
â€śI was really confused. I didnâ€™t get why I was wearing a mask. But I understand it now â€” why my dad would want our faces to be covered. When we went out without him we wouldnâ€™t be recognized, and we could have a normal childhood,â€ť
I was so impressed with the way Paris opened up to Oprah. One thing is for sure her father would be so proud of the young woman.
