Michael Jackson’s son, Bigi also spoke about how he and his siblings are all motivated to keep up spreading awareness about climate change and challenge big public figures to take action.
“I do think it’s important that we all know about it and I think we have some work to do but our generation knows how important it is.”
In another Good Morning Britain interview, Bigi’s elder brother, Prince Jackson spoke at length about their deep sibling bond.
“At this point in our life it doesn’t really feel like there’s that hierarchy of, ‘I’m the older brother. It’s more [that] we’re all siblings and we’re kind of all on that same level where my sister has her strengths, and my brother has his strengths, and where I’m not as strong in certain areas, they complement me in that way.”
Prince further added how their father, Michael Jackson, had instilled the importance of family bonds in them from childhood.
“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.”
He further stated that he cherishes every moment the siblings share together, especially since they’re all busy with their lives now.
“Any moment I get to spend with my siblings now, especially as we’re getting older and our own lives are starting to kind of blossom and grow. Every moment that I get with them — any little family dinner, any little family outing—is really a special moment for me.”
