  • Paris, Prince Michael and Blanket were interviewed by the famous TV host in a show due to be broadcast today

    Michael Jackson’s children, Paris, Prince Michael and Blanket are set to make their first public appearance since his death, in an interview with Oprah to be broadcast in the US tonight.

    The famous chat show host was allowed rare access to the Jackson family’s ranch in Encino California, and spent time chatting to both the children, and Michael’s parents, Joe and Katherine.

    In an emotional chat, Michael’s mother told Oprah she feared the star was addicted to plastic surgery, revealing: ‘He’d say “I’m just so ugly, I don’t want to go out there”‘, she said. ‘I’d say “You’re not.” To a mother, all her children are always beautiful.’

    ‘One day he just made up his mind and he just left. When I enquired about where he was, he had gone down to get his nose done.

    ‘I hear that people get addicted to plastic surgery and I think that’s what happened to him.’

    The interview then moved on to Michael’s children, who, despite their bizarre upbringing, seemed incredibly happy and grounded.

    ‘He tried to raise us without [us] knowing who he was, but that didn’t go so well.’ Paris told Oprah of her father, later adding: ‘I kinda felt like no one understands what a good father he was,’ Paris said. ‘I’d say he was the best cook ever. He was just a normal dad, except he was the best dad.

    The children also revealed their acting ambitions, with Paris hoping to take to the stage, while Prince Michael adding he would like to be a film director.

    ‘I’d like to be an actress when I’m older,’ Paris said. ‘I sometimes do improvs. I used to do them with my dad.’
