It’s not everyday Micheal Jackson’s children give candid interviews about their father, but recently Micheal’s son Prince Jackson gave a rare interview to explain the impact his dad had on his fans.
Prince Jackson, whose real name is Michael Joseph Jackson Jr., admitted that he found it rather strange seeing people’s reactions to his father’s presence during a concert that took place in the Middle East.
The King of Pop’s son explained that it was a 'single a-ha moment' when he realised that his dad was incredibly famous.
Speaking to Fox Soul, Prince said: “I saw that people would follow us around. People would just want to reach out and touch my dad.
"There were people fainting in the audience, and I asked my dad, 'Why are people fainting? I see you every day and I don't faint.
"That had that resonation that people really loved my father."
Prince also went on to explain the lessons he learnt from his dad growing up.
He continued: "You know, there are 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. I graduated, and 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're going to start dying’."
Prince, 24, is the eldest of Micheal’s three children. He is followed by younger sister Paris,22 and younger brother Blanket who is 19.

“I don't want to say pressure, but there is this legacy that my father worked very hard to build and to maintain and I feel that it's my position really in my life and everything that I've been given; I just want to expand that legacy.”
He continued: “I feel that the older I get the more I get to unpack the wisdom that he left and all the experiences that he imparted on us.”
