Michael Jackson’s Son — Blanket ‘Bigi’ Jackson — Looks All Grown Up In Latest Rare Interview

Michael Jackson is known the world over for his music and entertainment legacy — he isn’t named the “King of Pop” for nothing. His long career full of hit songs, show-stopping performances, and celebrity collaborations has made him a household name. And although his life wasn’t without controversy, there’s no denying that Michael left an indelible mark on music history.

The artist’s personal life sparked interest with the public, including his marriage to Elvis’ daughter Lisa Marie Presley, but for the most part, he was an intensely private person who kept his work and personal life separate. That extended to his other relationships and the children that he had.

Perhaps something that many people weren’t aware of is that Michael fathered three children, including a son named Michael Joseph “Prince” Jackson Jr., a daughter named Paris Jackson, and another son named Prince Michael “Blanket” Jackson II. For most of their lives, the Jackson children were kept out of the spotlight, except for the rare occasion where they joined their father publicly. They were thrust in the spotlight for a brief moment upon their father’s death before retreating away again.

But in recent years, Paris has begun a career in the entertainment industry, which has, in turn, shed some light on the Jackson children. And now Prince Michael, who went by the nickname “Blanket” for much of his youth, has grown up, having just turned 21 in February 2023. The young man is truly moving into adulthood and gave a rare interview to “Good Morning Britain” in November 2021. He has also eschewed his former nickname for a name he now prefers to go by, Bigi.

 

In an exclusive interview with “Good Morning Britain,” Bigi spoke about his father’s legacy while walking around a room filled with memorabilia from Michael’s career. “There’s a lot of really cool stuff here. There’s a lot of history in this house and the studio here. That’s what he was all about,” he said and then referred to his older siblings Paris and Prince. “That’s what each of us wants to do — make things that people enjoy but also benefit their lives.”

The interview occurred during the United Nations COP26 climate summit in Scotland. Bigi also gave a statement on the issue of climate change, as he said, “I do think it’s important we all know about it. We have some work to do but our generation knows how important it is.”

Bigi’s older brother Prince also spoke with “Good Morning Britain” in Fall 2021, having said on October 28:

“When we were growing up, my father would say, ‘We could have nothing, but you look around in this room, your brother, your sister, and me, that’s all you’ll ever have. And that always stuck with my siblings and I, and we have such a close relationship. Because I’m the oldest, my father would always tell me (that) I have to make sure that the group is taken care of and that I have to be the leader and lead by example.”

Prince also said that he wishes he could spend more time with his siblings. “Every moment that I get with them—any little family dinner, any little family outing, is really a special moment for me,” he shared.

The brothers were reunited on October 31, 2021, for Prince’s annual Halloween celebration to benefit The Heal Los Angeles Foundation at the family’s Hayvenhurst estate.
