Oprah Winfrey's interview with Michael Jackson's daughter, Paris, aired last night on Oprah's Next Chapter, and with it even more interesting information about what it's like growing up as a Jackson.

OK! NEWS: PARIS JACKSON TELLS OPRAH WINFREY: MICHAEL JACKSON WAS "A NORMAL FATHER"

As previously reported, Paris told Oprah Michael was a "normal" dad. Aside from being forced to wear masks in public, the King of Pop wanted the kids to have as ordinary a childhood as any other kid.

"Now I see other kids and their parents, and I compare them to my dad. Our dad was a really normal father when he was with us. We would get grounded if we did something bad. He would ground us. He wouldn't call it grounding; he'd just say, 'You're on punishment.'" she told Oprah. "Sometimes we'd be on punishment a lot. Mostly me and Blanket, because me and Blanket would always fight."

There is, however, a downside to coming from a famous family: good, old-fashioned schoolyard bullying.

"People have tried [to bully], but it doesn't always work… at school and some people try to cyberbully me," she said. "They try to get to me with words, but that doesn't really work."

When Oprah asks if she thinks her classmates are jealous, Paris looks unconvinced, shrugs and answers, "maybe."

She also mentions 24-hour security, with guards following Paris and her friends wherever they go, which all her pals find "creepy."

Check out the video below for more of Paris and Oprah.
