Paris previously spoke about her unconventional upbringing on No Filter with Naomi Campbell. She recalled crisscrossing the world with her father as he went on concert tours, noting the mixed emotions she feels when thinking about her childhood.
“It was difficult. A blessing [and] a privilege to be able to experience so much at a young age,” Paris remembered. “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.”
And in 2012, Paris addressed her father’s decision to make her and her siblings wear masks in public. She told Oprah Winfrey she was “really confused” about the practice, but added, “I understand it now, why my dad would want my face to be covered. When we went out without him, we wouldn’t be recognized. We could have a normal childhood.”
