Michael Jackson's Son Prince Gives a Rare Interview

Prince Jackson is speaking out.

The 24-year-old son of the late Michael Jackson opened up in a rare interview for FOX Soul’s The Mix.

During the interview, he spoke about life lessons from his late father.

“There’s so many nuggets there that are just so close to my heart that I feel like they’re applicable at all times, but the one that is my guiding principle is that ‘You never stop learning,’” he explained, adding that after he graduated from college in 2019, “that doesn’t mean that I stopped learning.”

“And my father also would say something along the lines of, ‘The minute that you stop learning is the minute that you are going to start dying.’ You’re gonna make mistakes, but you’re gonna have to dust your self off and come back.”

He has been working in philanthropy, and co-founded the Heal Los Angeles Foundation with a fellow college student. He also ruled out becoming a musical artist.

“If I did [think of becoming an artist], my family would be very honest and tell me that it’s not for you. I don’t have the voice for singing and it took me a while to learn what a beat was, but I got that down at least. I just can’t dance,” he admitted.

He also discussed growing up with music: “There really wasn’t a genre that we didn’t listen to. He was an artist and he had an appreciation for his craft.”

“My sister [Paris Jackson] and I, we were worked up about saving the animals, and we did a protest in our bedroom listening to ‘They Don’t Care About Us.’”

Paris Jackson recently hit back regarding the age difference in her relationship.
