Pop icon Michael Jackson has left behind an entertainment legacy in the person of his son, Prince who has recently stated that he desires to follow in his father’s footsteps. Wanting to gain work experience on the big and small screen, the young Jackson looks to being a director someday.
Prince’s past experience has been as a reporter on TV’s popular “Entertainment Tonight,” and he has also appeared on “90210.” Stating he liked working in TV and saw the time he put in as valuable, Prince desires to learn all he can so he might have a solid career in entertainment.
With a mature attitude, Jackson said he doesn’t expect his famous name to be to automatically open doors for him. He also fondly remembers his father filming the movie scenes they would write and tape at home and then enjoy watching.
To further help his acting career, Prince is training in the martial arts–Muay Thai, Jiu-Jitsu and also boxing. The training is helpful in feeling just like an everyday kid rather than the son of a big celebrity.
The young Jackson remembers his dad with great affection, noting the superstar’s love of the city of London and of how hard the fifth anniversary of his death was for him and the rest of the family, especially for his sister. He wants to make sure he and his siblings preserve Michael Jackson’s memory.
