Two and a half years after their famously eccentric father died, sources tell the magazine, MJ's kids are keeping up with school work while pursuing interests in entertainment. Paris, 13, was recently cast in the film 'Lundon's Bridge and the Three Keys,' while Prince, 14, and Blanket (real name: Prince Michael II), 9, are looking to get behind the camera.
"Prince and Blanket want to be directors," the musician Genevieve told People. "They make home movies together and recruit their cousins to act in them."
Since the King of Pop's passing in June 2009, all three children have been raised by the late singer's mother, Katherine. While Blanket -- who also likes baking cupcakes and cakes with the help of house staff -- is still home-schooled, his older siblings have gone on to private school, where they're said to be thriving.
"They love the social aspect of it," a source said, adding that Prince is already proving a ladies man.
Paris, on the other hand, is not yet dating.
"She's got too many uncles keeping an eye on her," the source said.
