Michael Jackson's Son Prince Says Harry Styles Should Not Have Been Crowned King Of Pop

King of Pop Michael Jackson's eldest son Prince Michael Jackson is dragging Rolling Stone for coining Harry Styles with the 'King of Pop' title, when it took his father decades to earn the moniker.

While making a guest appearance on Mike Tyson's Hotboxin' podcast, which was released two weeks ago, the 26-year-old producer touched on how Styles was dubbed the King of Pop by Rolling Stone in 2022.

He claimed that no current star compares to the late pop icon as an artist, if anyone, he named Beyoncé as the only one who comes the closest to channeling his father's iconic appeal.

His father passed away at the age of 50 due to an overdose in 2009 when he was just 12 years old.

Before his sudden passing, Prince said his father worked diligently to earn his title as King of Pop.

'When he was getting ready during the rehearsals for This Is It, he would come home real late at night,' he said about the late pop legend before adding that he also did not 'sleep easily'.

'He would come home [and] he'd be physically [looking] exhausted,' he recalled.

'He'd have a shake or eat a meal and go to working on music, go to his room, start writing or harmonizing, and melodizing to try and figure out another song,' he continued.

'There are people that came before my technology generation, and they had to work their whole life, their a**es off to get where they got to,' he said while crediting his the previous generations of entertainment, including his father.

He also spoke about how Michael saw himself as the 'greatest of all time' and claimed he was 'bigger' than his pop rival, the late Prince.

In the interview, he also revealed that there is still archival music recorded by his father, which have been yet to be released to the public, and are ready to be finished.

He explained that the music is made up of incomplete and rough clips because of the unique way his father created music.

'When it comes to unreleased music there, what we have in our vault — as I've been kind of told — is a lot of really rough works in progress,' Prince revealed.

'So it's a lot of little snippets of "he he" and stuff like that,' he continued.

'I don't think my father ever learned how to read sheet music,' he added. 'So as a trained musician, it was really self-taught.'

These days ya'll be giving out unearned titles like it's candy. Y'all know damn well Harry Styles' music hasn't had the impact that Michael's has, let alone deserving that King of Pop title. The closest person that exudes the energy and impact of MJ would be Beyonce.
