Prince Michael Joseph Jackson, the first born child of the late Michael Jackson, made his first solo in-person appearance in Berlin, Germany today to represent his family at the Tribute to Bambi 2011 event. As you can see in the photo below, Prince was all decked out in a black and red outfit which looked exactly like one of his father’s famous outfits. Check him out below.
His father was noted for the sharp suit and armband combo he started wearing during his smooth criminal years. And it seems the look was still inspiring his son as he made a solo public appearance in Berlin, Germany today. The 14-year-old donned a black suit and red armband as he appeared at the Tribute to Bambi 2011 event. The fact he wore a black tie and red shirt was also noteworthy, as it was one of the legendary singer’s favourite fashion pairings.
Prince appeared happy and relaxed as he posed at the show, which was raising money for the disadvantaged children’s charity. His Thriller star father was used to being in the public eye as a teenager in the Jackson Five. And his eldest son seems to be taking his fame in his stride too, as he reveled in the atmosphere. His appearance at the event coincided with the announcement of his first ever high-profile public engagement. He will star be starring at an auction on November 10 in aid of the Tribute to Bambi foundation, where his father’s handwritten composition of Bad will be up for sale. A spokesman for the event said: ‘Prince Michael Jackson will walk the red carpet and present the manuscript on stage surrounded by children. A source close to the event told People: ‘He won’t be traveling alone, but no family members will be with him.’ In the past he has always made public appearances under the watchful eyes of his relatives, often with his sister Paris, 13, and his brother 10-year-old brother Blanket.
Crazy. Prince was just a baby just a short time ago … then a wee little toddler … now he’s practically a man. It looks like the Jackson family is really interested in having MJ‘s children in the spotlight. My guess is that things will start out like this, a charity event here and there then … more. I just hope these kids are happy. It’s horrible that they lost their father at such a young age. I just hope they are ready for everything that comes with life in the public eye.
