Michael Jackson's Son Says He's Trying To Earn The Name His Father Gave Him

King's son.

The King of Pop left behind some very media savvy kids. Paris Jackson has recently begun to welcome the public eye, launching a career as a model and actress, and giving some pretty wild interviews about her dad Michael Jackson (she thinks he was murdered). In comparison, Paris’s brother Prince Michael Jackson seems extremely staid.

In a new interview with Good Morning America, Prince came on to talk about the work he’s been doing for charity his charity Heal L.A., which aids foster children, and children who have been victims of abuse. The spotlight is not for Prince, though he talks like a politician. From what he says, his dad would not be disappointed that he doesn’t like to sing and dance.

"As we were growing up, my dad always said, 'I really don't care what you do in life as long as you're happy doing it and you're the best at what you do,” says Prince, “If you want to be a janitor at a high school, you should be the best janitor that you can be.' I think that he would always be the supporting figure to me and my siblings and support us in all the endeavors that we try."

He’s not totally out of the music biz. Prince has a music video production house called King’s Son Productions. Still a behind-the-scenes move, but it runs in the family.

"King's Son Productions has this mantra where a title is earned but a name is given. I was born as Prince, and that was the name my dad had given to me, but my dad had earned the epithet 'King of Pop,’” Prince says, “That's through hard work and years of training and everything that he worked so hard to get. So, it's a form of motivation. My name is Prince, but for all intents and purposes, I'm the King's son. I am working to get my own epithet."
