Michael Jackson's eldest child, Prince, has shared that he feels his late father's "guidance" in his life and career.

It comes as the 22-year-old and his 17-year-old brother Bigi, formerly known as Blanket, launched a film review YouTube channel earlier in the year.

"My dad was always a strong believer in going for what you want and 'go follow your dreams and chase your dreams'. Prince told Extra. "So for us to be able to kind of sit there and hopefully make a career about talking about film and looking at film – my brother wants to be a director, I love producing."

He added: "It’s just, it’s definitely, there’s some form of guidance there that kind of is ushering us into the next generation."

Jackson rubbed shoulders with many other musical icons in his lifetime, including Freddie Mercury, who reportedly mocked the Bad hitmaker for sleeping on the floor of his Los Angeles mansion.

Mercury's assistant Peter ‘Phoebe’ Freestone, who worked with the Queen singer for 12 years, has said that he was surprised to find that Jackson slept on a mattress in the middle of the floor when visiting his home.

“‘You’ve got money, why don’t you buy a bed?’” Freestone recalled Mercury quipping. “Michael just said, ‘I feel so much better when I’m closer to the Earth.’

“Freddie said, ‘Well how much closer does not having a bed make you? We’re upstairs.’” he went on. “That was the sort of thing that happened.”
