Los Angeles - Michael Jackson's son says he was the "best father".

Prince Jackson - who was just 12 when the King of Pop died of acute Propofol intoxication in 2009 - and his siblings Paris, 16, and Blanket, 12, want to preserve their father's memory by continuing to "spread his message" of love.

Prince said: "We want to keep my dad's legend alive. He was the best father anybody could have. He raised us the right way and there's nothing anyone can do to make us forget about him. He was always concerned about humanity. He helped many charities. In his songs his message was simple - love. We will continue to spread his message."

Prince, 17, wants to be a movie director but is determined to get as much experience in front of the camera as he can first, and doesn't expect to get jobs just because of his famous father.

He told The Sun newspaper, "I don't expect to walk into roles because of who I am. I want to learn my craft.I would like to be a director one day. But to be a good director you have to know how an actor works and feels on set."

Prince added: "I want to learn my craft and experience being in TV shows and possibly movies before I even consider going behind the camera.

"It is not a job to be taken lightly. You need to put your time in to learning something properly before overseeing others."
