Paris Jackson is pleased she got the “chance to be normal”.

The 13-year-old is the daughter of one of the most famous pop stars in the world, the late Michael Jackson.

However, no one knew what she looked like when she was a young child, because Michael famously covered his children’s faces with masks.

Paris confessed she wasn’t happy with the routine at the time, but in hindsight she is glad she had her privacy.

"When I came to Buckley [her school] they didn't know who I was," Paris said in her first ever solo interview on Ellen DeGeneres’ TV show. "I was like, 'Yes, I have a chance to be normal.'"

Paris is now set to become a star in her own right as she has embarked on an acting career.

She will make her debut feature film appearance in the film Lundon’s Bridge and the Three Keys.

Paris revealed that her dad inspired her to begin acting.

"My dad was in the movie Moonwalker and I knew he could sing really well but I didn't know he could act," she explained. "I saw that and I said, 'Wow, I want to be just like him.'"

Michael died when Paris was just 11. But she still remembers all the guidance he gave her.

"He said, 'If I die tomorrow always remember what I told you.' I took his advice and I remembered everything he told me," she smiled.
