During an interview on This Morning with Phillip and Holly, Prince Michael Jackson admitted that he has none of his father’s musical talent.
“I can’t sing, I can’t dance, I can’t do any of that,” Prince said in his “first British interview.” “I’ve tried it [the Moonwalk] and it’s embarrassing, we can’t even talk about that.”
Instead, Jackson works behind the scenes at his production company, King’s Son.
“I’m a very private person in my private life and I don’t like to reveal to the public things that aren’t appropriate,” he said. “I decided to go into production because it’s still in the entertainment industry but behind the camera.”
He also runs a charitable foundation called Heal the World, which is named for his father’s 1992 song.
“We focus on child hunger, child abuse and homelessness in the Los Angeles area,” he said. “We really structured it off of Heal the World but on a smaller scale to lead by example to say you don’t have to be a pop star or be very famous to make a difference. You can make a difference by going out and doing these things by yourself or with a group of friends in your own city.”
In remembering his famous father, Jackson also said that he grew up thinking that his father was normal until he saw recordings of him performing.
“I thought it was normal at first but then we saw videos of him performing. People were fainting. One time we were outside the Dorchester and lots of people were shouting and chanting his name and my dad sent out pizza and hot chocolate to them,” he said.
