Christopher's Kitchen Backsplash project

Hi
I am about to do a kitchen remodel and had a few questions for you pro's.

SWMBO has picked out some tiles for the backsplash (not sure what kind yet). Currently there is paint where the new tiles will go. Do I need to remove it before tiling or can I just tile over it?
Also when I removed the previous "backsplash" above the cooktop it removed a fair amount of the paper on the drywall. I am currently seeing the brown paper (looks like the last layer before the actual white drywall powder stuff). Will this be an issue too?

oh, and what should I be using to put the tiles up with? The same stuff you use in the bathroom or something specifically for kitchens?

Thanks for your input.
CWT

Thanks Bob for the prompt reply. I was worried that I would have to do drywall again and that is my least favorite thing in the world.

Many thanks
