Michael Jackson has been widely regarded as ‘The King of Pop’ ) but 50-year-old music magazine Rolling Stone has labeled Harry Styles with the title. Prince Jackson recently sat down with Good Morning Britain to say that while Styles is cool and everything, his dad put in the work for decades to earn his title.
Prince Jackson opens up on the matter:
Harry Styles is an incredible artist,” Prince said. “He’s got his own genre and he’s definitely an amazing artist. “But the ‘King of Pop’ was a moniker that really my dad earned in a time that the access to information and the access to popularity and fame wasn’t as easily accessible as it is today.”
“No need to be humble Prince, keep flexing,” I said in my head as I watched the interview. He obliged:
“And with so many other social factors that you have to take into consideration at that time, I do feel that my father is the King of Pop, will always be the King of Pop, and it’s not something that you can ever take away,” Prince continued, “because we’ve just evolved so much as a society that those same factors will never be the same. So when you look at…from where my father started to where he ended, versus where all these other people started to where they ended, it’s just night and day of a difference.”
