NEW YORK, April 15 (UPI) -- The late pop star Michael Jackson's 15-year-old daughter, Paris, says she would like to be a heart surgeon when she grows up, the New York Post reported.

"I want to help people," the newspaper quoted the teen as saying.

Discussing how her father insisted she and her two brothers wear masks whenever they went out in public with him, Paris said: "He didn't want anyone to see what we looked like. That way we could have what he didn't, which was a normal childhood."

Michael Jackson died at the age of 50 of an accidental overdose of anesthesia and sedatives in June 2009. His personal physician, cardiologist Conrad Murray, is serving prison time for involuntary manslaughter for administering the drugs to Jackson to help the insomniac entertainer sleep.
