The statement prompted an incredulous response from the podcast’s co-host, who exclaimed, “What?!“
But Prince clarified, “I did get to see him perform at Madison Square Garden right before 9/11 for the Jackson Five.” This tidbit of his past raised curiosity among listeners, eager to learn more about the young Jackson’s experiences.
A Playful Turn: Life After MJ
DJ Whoo Kid inquired whether it was challenging for Prince to establish his identity apart from his famous father, to which he responded, “I think it’s who you talk to, you know? Everybody kinda expects that.” He shared that his father shielded him and his siblings from the public eye by having them wear masks when they went out.
