Prince Jackson On His Father: “He Raised Me Right”

Congratulations to Prince Jackson!

Michael Jackson‘s 16-year-old son has landed a job as a special correspondent on the entertainment news program ET, the CBS show announced Monday (February 18).

ET confirms that Prince will now be seen in front of cameras conducting interviews, his first one being with actors with James Franco, Zach Braff and Sam Raimi of the upcoming film Oz the Great and Powerful.

When asked who he would like to interview next if he had his choice, Prince divulges, “Probably Peter Jackson because I love his movies. Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit and King Kong. I just love the way he shoots [and how] he brings things and depicts it back to life.”

“I used to study his movies with my dad, put the volume off and just watch it, just the shots to see how he put it together,” he adds.

Speaking of Michael, Prince says he’d like to follow his famous father’s footsteps in show business.

“I’m looking to become well-rounded as a producer, director, screenwriter and actor,” he tells the show.  “That was all thanks to my dad. He raised me right.”

And when it come to following your dreams, Prince got some sage advice from actor James Franco.

“I always tell people, just go out and try, and stop waiting around or dreaming it’s going to happen. Just go and start doing things on your own,” he tells Prince.

What a polite, smart young man. Michael did a great job with him. Say what you will, but you cannot erase the 12 years he spent nurturing and raising that boy.

I agree Ashley! Watched him as a corresponder on ET and he was amazing. Very talented and respectful young man.

Yes. Anyone who ever saw Michael with his children when they were young would say how smart and respectful the kids were. They were normal kids who had their spats with each other, but they were always reminded by Michael to mind their manners and clean up their messes. Prince talked a couple years ago on Good Morning America about wanting to direct and how Michael would bring staff from UCLA out to work with them and teach them about film making. I think Michael knew that his kids wanted to get into the business, and he was trying to… Read more »

What a joke. This is so pathetic. This idiot hasn’t figured out he’s not a Jackson yet? He has the same eyes as his real father, Dr Klein. He also has the same chunky stocky body type as Arnie. He is only making a fool of himself by pretending to be something he is not.

Michael was his dad from day 1. Think what you will about his paternity, but Michael is the one that wanted to be a dad. Michael loved, nurtured and raised him. You cannot judge a child for the circumstances of his birth. He did not ask to be born. He has been a Jackson since birth and has every right to call himself Michael Jackson’s son.

Although I agree it is more than obvious that Arnold Klein is his bio dad, MJ raised him just as any adoptive parents do of the kids they welcome into their lives. Just because he provided the sperm, it doesn’t make him the “dad” in any true sense of the word other than simply biological.

It isn’t obvious to me. He looks like Michael and Debbie to me. Plus heghas vitiligo like Michael. It isn’t impossible. But I really don’t care. Michael was his dad. Biology doesn’t matter . Prince grew up loved and that means more than anything else.

The drugged up, wetting his bed, living in filth freak raised this? Or was he us trophy white playmate supplied by the DNA of his doctor and nurse. I think it’s the latter.

Does it give you some kind of happy to be this negative? All of this bed-wetting stuff is simply rumor. Murray was giving Propofol as a sleep aid, which he never should have done. An incontinence pad was used as well as a catheter, because under anesthetic like that, one has no control. Michael was not hooked up to this 24/7. His kids were with him, you were not. they would know more than us how he was, and they have said he was a NORMAL DAD. A good dad. Michael had sleep issues as well as some anxiety issues.… Read more »

He was disgusting and unkempt, the pictures of his room alone show he was living in filth. Nasty nail fungus, an all around slob. He was obviously too lazy to do anything for himself. Pathetic. A great father would not be so stupid and have a doctor give him anesthesia. A great father doesn’t buy other people’s children and try to pass them off as his bio kids.

I think the photos you are thinking of are the ones taken after Neverland was raided. The police ransacked the place

As for anesthesia…it is well documented that Michael was a chronic insomniac. If you had been through what he had, you probably wouldn’t sleep well either.

Anyway…most of what you say comes from tabloid gossip. Educate yourself before you speak.

He didn’t buy anybody’s children. He did what thousands of childless people do today…he paid someone to carry his kids. Why is it ok for Elton John, Ricky Martin, etc. but not for him?

Good for him. I wish him the best of luck. Perhaps, he could interview Joe Jackson and his shady French perfurmer Julian Rouas and ask them why on earth did try to benefit from Michael’s death with that sordid line of tribute fragrances. Read the court verdict and others shocking details regarding this venture… http://jacksontributefragrances.blogspot.com
