Quotes:

“I’m looking to become well-rounded as a producer, director, screenwriter and actor.  “That was all thanks to my dad. He raised me right.” – Prince on his dreams.

“Prince likes electronics. He can hook up about anything. He also likes karate. And all of the kids are musically talented. I truly believe that God blessed this family with the gift of music to make people happy all over the world. If they want to become performers, that’s fine with me and my mom, but they also have to get an education.” – uncle Marlon Jackson on his late brother’s children.

“This, right here, is his lifetime achievement award. This is what he strived to get, and this is what we are giving him now.” – Prince on his father after memorializing him with his famous sequined glove and a pair of his dancing shoes.

    He’s musically talented? Puhlease. This is such a farce. He’s not Jackson’s bio son.

    Happy 17th Bday Prince. You are the son of the most famous and most talented man that ever lived. You are making him proud, take care of his legacy and don’t let ANYone take advantage of you because of who you are and that includes family members. Take care of your dad’s charities as well. He was the greatest man that ever lived.

    @anon, everyone knows he is not bio, but you don’t have to be bio to be someone’s son. MJ was their dad in every other way, doesn’t matter if bio or not. So, tell us something we don’t know or stfu cuz we all kno the kids are not bio. LOL
