(Newser) – Paris Jackson was "confused" about why she had to wear a mask in public when she was younger, she tells Oprah on Oprah's Next Chapter, via the BBC. "I understand it now, why my dad would want our face to be covered," she said. "Like when we went out without him, we wouldn't be recognized, so we could have a normal childhood."

"Smart," said Oprah in response. Paris also talks about how her father felt he never had a normal childhood because of his singing career, so it was important for him that his children have the chance to be normal kids. "Chuck E Cheese's was one of his favorite places to go," she said. The full interview is scheduled to air June 10.
