Michael Jackson's children to pursue movie careers?

02/25/2011 by Corinne Heller

Michael Jackson's children want to work in show business and his mother and their legal guardian Katherine Jackson says their interest in entertainment comes from their father.

The King of Pop died at age 50 on June 25, 2009 at his Los Angeles home from an overdose of the powerful anesthetic propofol and two other sedatives that were prescribed and administered by Conrad Murray, who pleaded not guilty in January to a charge of involuntary manslaughter.

"I'm looking at a couple of opportunities in show business," Prince Michael, 14, told ABC's "Good Morning America" recently. "Mostly producing. Movies."

"We had a teacher from UCLA come to our house and we would do film classes there," he added. "And when we were in Ireland, we would film a couple of movies with him, too."

Katherine Jackson said the children often dress up and shoot home movies.

"I'm thinking about auditioning for a play next week," Michael Jackson's 12-year-old daughter Paris told "Good Morning America."

Last year, Prince Michael, Paris, and Blanket, 9 began attending a private school in a Los Angeles suburb after years of homeschooling. Prince Michael joked his favorite subjects were gym and lunch.
