Michael Jackson’s Kids on 'Oprah'

“He was the best cook ever,” Paris says.

Paris, Prince and Blanket opened up about their late father, Michael, for the first time in a pre-taped segment that aired on The Oprah Winfrey Show Monday. Watch a clip, below.

“He was just a normal dad, except I’d say the best dad,” says Paris. “He was the best cook ever... Everyone’s surprised to hear it. He made the best French toast in the world.”

The kids have been living with their grandmother, Katherine, since Michael’s June 2009 death.

Also on Monday: the first single off Jackson’s posthumous album, due in stores Dec. 14, was released on his website.
