Peter Andre tells Junior to “concentrate on school” over rapping career

He says it may sound strict but it's in Junior's best interests

Peter Andre has told son Junior he must “concentrate on school” before he pursues any showbiz career.

The Mysterious Girl singer wrote in his latest New! magazine column that Junior, 13, is a talented rapper and often practises his rapping at home.

After Peter shared a video of Junior rapping to Instagram, fans said they reckon the teen has what it takes to make it big, but Peter, 45, has said Junior must finish school first.

Peter said: “The kid’s got talent and he practises every day, but I don’t want to push him into anything because the more he practises the better he’s going to get.

“He needs to concentrate on school right now. I know I sound strict but it’s with the best intentions.”

Meanwhile, Peter also used his New! magazine column to praise eldest daughter Princess, ten, who recently starred as a journalist in her school play.

The proud dad gushed: “She was brill and was really good at rehearsing her lines at home. She’s actually getting more confident on stage, which is great.”

Peter shares Junior and Princess with ex-wife Katie Price.

He’s also dad to daughter Amelia, four, and one-year-old son Theo with his second wife Emily.

Meanwhile, Peter announced recently he’s landed a voiceover role playing a rally car called Ace in animated Thomas The Tank Engine movie called Thomas and Friends: Big World! Big Adventures! The Movie.

The animated film will see Thomas embark on his biggest adventure yet, mischievously led by Ace, who inspires him to leave Sodor and travel across five continents without the permission of the Fat Controller.

Peter said: “It is a real honour to be voicing the character of Ace in the new movie and such a buzz for me to be doing my first worldwide movie voiceover for something that I grew up on and loved as a child and that my kids now love too.
