Paris Jackson talks about wearing masks as a child when going out in public with her father.

OWN/HARPO STUDIOS - Three years after the death of Michael Jackson, his only daughter, Paris, is sitting down for an interview with Oprah Winfrey.

During the chat, which is scheduled to air on the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN), Jackson recalls what it was like to wear masks when out with her father.

"I was really confused, like, I didn't get why I was wearing a mask. But I understand it now, why my dad would want our face to be covered. Like when we went out without him we wouldn't be recognized, we could have a normal childhood," she told Winfrey.

Winfrey then asked if the 'king of pop' ever thought it was possible for his children to live normal lives.

"He had his doubts, because I remember he told us when he was younger he didn't really have a childhood. He would always be stuck in the studio singing while other kids were out playing and he wanted us to have that," she explained.

"A lot of times we would go to 'Chuckie Cheese' - 'Chuckie Cheese' and 'Toy R Us' were our favorite places to go," Jackson said with a smile.

Jackson also introduced Winfrey to her best friend and talks about her upcoming movie role.

The 14-year-old is the middle child of Jackson's three children, Prince, 15 and Blanket 10.

The interview will air on "Oprah's Next Chapter," at 9 p.m. EDT on June 10 and will also include an interview with Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson.
