Michael Jackson’s son Prince opened up to the Los Angeles Times in one of the very few interviews he’s given since his father’s death, and it makes us feel so much for him, and it makes us miss his father, too. (We love ya forever for what you did for music, Michael.)
We can’t imagine what growing up with the King of Pop as your dad must have been like. The constant public scrutiny, the lack of privacy, the vitriolic rumors, and the crazed fans…
But in this interview, Prince Michael Jackson actually sounds kind of… normal.
Jackson is in his second year at Loyola Marymount University, majoring in business. He loves movies and video games, and hanging with his family.
At 19-years-old, he’s grown a lot in the seven years since his father’s death, and has had a lot of time think about the kind of man he wants to be, which is well summarized by his cousin Taj:
Jackson recently founded a production company called King’s Son Production (brilliant name), and is fulfilling his dreams of being a director and producer.
His company’s first production is a music video for Omar Bhatti, a music protege of Michael’s. Bhatti was so close to Prince Michael, that two are like brothers.
The music video follows the short film form that Jackson’s father pioneered, and we have to say, IT IS EXCELLENT.
We’re very excited to see how Prince Michael Jackson not only furthers his fathers legacy, but how he uniquely establishes his own.
