When Michael Jackson became a father, he often made his kids, Prince, Paris and “Blanket“, wear masks when they were out in public. Most people didn’t understand this strange behavior, but he did it try to protect their identities. He wanted them to be able to do “normal kid” things and not be recognized.
Michael’s mother Katherine shared in a new interview why she chose not to carry on with the masks after Michael passed away. “They were sheltered a lot when Michael raised them. I had thought about it and I said, ‘I am not going to raise them like that.’ I didn’t like the way it looked anyway, but Michael had a good reason. He kept their faces veiled so nobody would know what they looked like and they could play like normal kids. He was trying to protect them.”
What do you think? Was it wise to have the kids wear masks for privacy? Do you think Katherine is doing a good job of keeping them away from the media?
