Michael Jackson's son Prince: 'Our generation is focused on the wrong things'

Prince Jackson, son of the late Michael Jackson, has revealed that he wants to inspire people to contribute selflessly to humanity this festive season. 

During an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the 19-year-old explained that the most important thing in life is the ability and will to help those in need: "I would love to see this as the ripple that goes to other schools and to other states and to hopefully other countries."

"Our generation, they focus on the wrong things, like, 'Who's wearing what? Who's doing what? Who's vacationing where?' There are real problems going on in the world that can be helped not by powerful people but by everyday people who just go in and devote their time. You should be decent enough to help out or want to help out your fellow man or woman."

He went onto add that Michael Jackson instilled the values of charity, benevolence and compassion within him from childhood: "When I was younger my dad always told me about how Disney was such a happy place and I grew up on the cartoons. And I remember [watching] Mickey Mouse and all of [the cartoon characters] and how happy I would feel and I know that was because of my dad. It's good to know that I'm doing that for the kids."
