    Paris Jackson opened up about what it was like growing up with her late dad Michael Jackson.

    She joined Naomi Campbell on Tuesday, March 30, on an episode of No Filter with Naomi Campbell. The supermodel danced with the King of Pop in his 1991 music video for “In the Closet”.

    According to Paris, her dad raised her and his brothers Michael Joseph “Prince” Jackson Jr. and Prince Michael “Blanket” Jackson II in the United States including in her dad’s famous Neverland Ranch located in Southern California as well as abroad.

    She recalled, “I was conceived in Paris, from what I’ve been told, which is part of why I was named Paris. Born in L.A., California and was kind of raised everywhere but. We spent a few years up north in like, Solvang, Santa Barbara area. But I was raised kind of everywhere, like the East Coast, the South, U.K., Europe, the Middle East. Like, we grew up everywhere.”

    Naomi praised the 22-year-old for her intelligence and added, “You see that you’re worldly.”

    “It was difficult, a blessing a privilege to be able to experience so much at a young age,” Paris said. “And my dad was really good about making sure we were cultured, making sure we were educated, and not just showing us like, the glitz and glam, like hotel-hopping five-star places. But it was also like, we saw everything. We saw third-world countries and we saw like, every part of the spectrum.”

    Paris was only 11 when her dad died at 50 in 2009 and she and her brothers had their major public debuts during his televised memorial service. Before that, they often wore a veil, mask, or any face covering to avoid being recognized. To her, it was her dad’s way for them to have a normal childhood.

    In 2012 she was asked by Oprah Winfrey if their dad wanted them to have a normal life and she replied, “Yeah, he did. He had his doubts [that it was possible]. He told us that when he was younger, he didn’t really have a childhood. Like, he would be stuck in the studio, singing while all the other kids were out playing. And he wanted us to have that. So a lot of times, we’d go to Chuck E. Cheese. Chuck E. Cheese and Toys R’ Us were our favorite places to go.”

    She added, “If we wanted five toys from FAO Schwartz or Toys R’ Us, we had to read five books. It’s about earning it, not just being entitled to certain things or thinking, ‘Oh, I got this.’ It’s like, working for it, working hard for it. It’s an accomplishment.”

    As was reported earlier, Britney Spears finally broke her silence over the “Framing Britney Spears”  documentary released by The New York Times.
