Approaching the one year anniversary of her father’s death, Paris Jackson‘s bedroom is a shrine to her father. That’s just one of the revelations made by Michael‘s mother Katherine Jackson in a rare interview, RadarOnline.com has learned.

Katherine spoke with London’s Daily Mirror and described in detail what 12-year-old Paris has done with her room.
“I wanted to hang pictures of flowers or ballerinas in Paris’ room, the sort of things I expected a girl would like,” Katherine said.
“But she went into a closet and she brought out seven or eight pictures of Michael, and she told me, ‘No, I want my Daddy hanging in my room’. So she goes to bed looking at him and wakes up looking at him. She said, ‘I always want to be able to see him’.”
Katherine also revealed the future ambitions of Michael’s children. Prince, 13, wants to produce movies. Paris wants to be an actress. “And Blanket is very playful, just like Michael was,” Katherine says of the eight-year-old who was introduced to the world when Michael dangled him from a hotel window.
All three kids live with their grandmother in what is known as the Jackson family compound. The mini-estate in L.A.’s Encino neighborhood was owned by Michael, and now by Michael’s estate which is allowing Katherine to remain there while she raises her grandchildren.
The children will be going to a regular school come fall, for the first time in their lives, Katherine also revealed. After years of homeschooling, they’ll be off to a private academy in September.
