We lost the King of Pop on June 25, 2009, just two months before his 51st birthday on August 29. To celebrate what would’ve been his 58th, his oldest son, Michael Joseph Jackson, Jr. — a.k.a. Prince Jackson — has penned a poem for his dearly departed father.

In a brief post he shared on Twitter and Instagram, Prince, who was only 12 when his father died, remembers him as “the Myth, the Legend and the Man” in a 14-line sonnet.

He stresses how dear Michael’s family was to him, specifically drawing attention to how much Jackson cared for his kids and his mom.

Prince, his younger brother Bigi and several members of the Jackson family recently visited Gary for the annual birthday tribute to his late father.

Omer ‘O-Bee’ Bhatti Debuts Prince Michael Jackson-Produced ‘Automatic’ Video

Fullscreen capture 6282016 15945 PM

Rapper/ singer Omer “O-Bee” Bhatti plays super hero in the clip for his latest single “Automatic,” making its debut on BillboardShot in less than a week, the video — directed by Chris Perez and produced by Michael Jackson‘s son, Prince Michael Jackson — was a collaborative artistic vision.

“I thrive off of creating something,” the Norwegian rapper tells Billboard. “The concept of the whole video was sparked from Prince’s first ideas for the video. We wanted to make a short-film type of video. Since I grew up under the mentorship of Michael Jackson, taking the cinematic approach came natural to me. I remember MJ used to say about his videos, ‘They are not music videos — I make short films.’ I guess that stuck with me.”

The King of Pop isn’t the only icon who inspired “Automatic” — Bhatti also shouts out Diddy, whose Bad Boy ways in the 90s inspired the song’s hook.

Prince Michael, who also stars in the clip, adds, “It’s inspired by the cinematic music videos that my dad made back in the day. It’s hard to describe what it was like working on this video. It didn’t feel like work — I was learning so much from all the crew members as well as having the good fortune to be working with close friends of mine.” He continues, “Working on this project felt like the beginning of a dream come true. I remember being on set and seeing the magnitude of the set and realizing, ‘Wow, we’re really doing this.'”

“Automatic” serves as the full-length production debut from Prince Michael Jackson’s King’s Son Productions. O-Bee’s forthcoming independent EP is slated for release later this year.

Paris Jackson Addresses The Symbolism Of Healing And Strength In Her Tattoos

A lot of people may have opinions about Paris Jackson’s tattoos, but here’s what she has to say about them on recent post on her Instagram account:

“the craftsmanship of tattoos will always be a controversy. some people like them, some people absolutely hate them. i appreciate art, i always have. especially when that art means something to me. today i can look at my inner forearms and see art that has meaning for me, i don’t see a dark past anymore. my scars and past of self-hatred have been covered by loving marks, creativity, ingenuity.. and depth. sure i will always carry my past with me, but i see ink as a way of changing for the better, always improving. they represent strength for me. i look back at my old self and then i look in the mirror, and i see a fighter looking back at me. i’ll always keep fighting, and encouraging others to stay strong. we all go through hell every now and then but it makes us the warriors of love we were meant to be. so to anyone struggling, it gets better. you’re not alone.”

Prince Jackson To Release His First Video Production Featuring Omer Bhatti’s New Single


He’s coming straight outta Norway.

Norwegian rapper-singer Omer “O-Bee” Bhatti pays tribute to Bad Boy’s golden era on his new single “Automatic,” exclusively premiering on Rap-Up.

“Running through the city with the bad boys,” he raps. “Shining like Diddy, I’m a bad boy / When it’s time to go and get the cash, boy, my whole squad automatic.”


Over infectious production from Jae Rashidi, the former “Norway’s Got Talent” mentor and judge goes on to “glide on ’em” on the track, which is a modern ode to the past.

“The song is inspired by my love for late ’90s Bad Boy Records-era Diddy,” he says. “That’s why Diddy gets a shout out! I think it reflects my personality. It’s fun and energetic.”

There’s more to come. The video for “Automatic” will also be the first release from King’s Son Productions, a new production company launched by Michael Jackson’s son, Prince, who’s also slated to appear in the visual.

Prince has been sharing glimpses of his work for the past week on his King’s Song Production Instagram account.

The eldest son of pop star Michael Jackson, Prince , 19, is a practitioner of Jiu Jtsu and trains at Gracie Academy Beverly Hills, Los Angeles in California. Prince is a student of Ryron and Rener Gracie. Back in 2013, he earned his blue belt in Jiu Jitsu.


Rener Gracie talked about the dedication of his student:

“Prince is a great student. He is one of our best. He”s extremely dedicated and very attentive to detail. He is already in the class of adults and is very friendly with all colleagues. He expressed no desire to fight MMA, for example, but has many of the qualities we look for in a student of jiu-jitsu.”

Prince, still a blue belt was recently asked by a reporter how his Jiu-Jitsu was going and if he planned on competing any time soon:

“No sir.”

The reporter then asked him if he was planning to become a black belt in Jiu-Jitsu one day. Prince humbly answered:

“You know, I just plan on learning. A black belt only covers two inches of your ass.”

Bigi Jackson Has Earned A Red Belt In Karate


Prince Michael II was spotted leaving his karate class at the renowned Gracie Academy on Sunday wearing a red Karate belt. The young teen is growing tall, strong and handsome like his dad.

His big brother Prince also attends the famous martial arts school where he is studying Jiu Jitsu.

Bigi has been taking lessons for several years and the results are paying off. He has consistently earned each color ranking.

The next belt that he has to has to earn is a black belt.


Meaning of the Colors

Originally, the white belt was simply dyed to a new color. This repeated dying process dictated the type of belt color and the order of the colors. The standard belt color system is white, yellow, gold, orange, green, blue, purple, brown, red and black. Due to the dying process, it was only practical to increasingly use darker colors. All of this came about shortly after the Second World War, when Korea and Japan were very poor countries. Dying the belts to a new color was a cheap way to have a visible, simple and effective ranking system.

White Belt: White signifies a birth, or beginning, of a seed. A white belt student is a beginner searching for knowledge of the Art. The white belt is the beginning of life’s cycle, and represents the seed as it lies beneath the snow in the winter.

Yellow Belt or Sash: Yellow signifies the first beams of sunlight which shines upon the seed giving it new strength with the beginning of new life. A yellow belt student is given his first ray of knowledge, opening his mind, from his instructors.

Orange Belt or Sash: Orange represents the growing power of the sun as it warms the earth to prepare for new growth in the spring. The orange belt is starting to feel his body and mind open and develop.

Green Belt or Sash: Green signifies the growth of the seed as it sprouts from the earth reaching toward the sun and begins to grow into a plant. A green belt student learns to strengthen and refine his techniques.

Blue Belt or Sash: Blue signifies the blue sky as the plant continues to grow toward it. A blue belt student moves up higher in rank just as the plant grows taller. The light feeds the plant so it can continue to grow. The student is fed additional knowledge of the Art in order for his body and mind continue to grow and develop.

Purple Belt or Sash: Purple represents the changing sky of dawn, as once again the student undergoes a new change and prepares for the transition to advanced student. A purple belt begins to understand the meaning of the black belt.

Brown Belt or Sash: Brown represents the ripening of the seed, a maturing and harvesting process. A brown belt is an advanced student whose techniques are beginning to mature, and he is beginning to understand the fruits of his hard work as a beginner.

Red Belt or Sash: Red signifies the red-hot heat of the Sun as the plant continues growing toward it. As a red belt student acquires more detailed knowledge, just as the plant grows slowly toward the Sun, so the red belt student learns to be more cautious with his knowledge and physical abilities. Red is a sign of danger, and the red belt is beginning to become dangerous with their knowledge and abilities.

Black Belt or Sash: Black signifies the darkness beyond the Sun. A black belt seeks new, more profound knowledge of the Art. As he begins to teach others, he plants new seeds and helps them grow and mature. His students, many whom will form roots deep into the Art, blossom and grow through the ranks in a never-ending process of self-growth, knowledge, and enlightenment.

Levels of Advancement

Another common misbelief that needs to be clarified is the “black belt as master” stereotype,. In reality, a black belt indicates the wearer is competent in a style’s basic technique. Since in Song Moo Kwan a black belt takes approximately 2 to 4 years of training to achieve, a good intuitive analogy would be a 1st Dan Black Belt is equivalent to a college Bachelor’s degree. The 1st Dan black belt is thus seen not so much as an end, but rather as a beginning, a doorway to advanced learning. The 5th Dan is “Master” in Song Moo Kwan, and can be viewed similar to a college Master’s degree, and 8th degree black belt “Grandmaster” can be seen being equivalent to a university Doctoral degree.

We are so proud of you Bigi! Keep up the good work!
