kanye west claims new king of pop position

090626_mjh_kanye

Kanye has really out done himself this time. It has been just over a month since Michael Jackson died, and already he is declaring himself the new “King Of Pop.” Not only that, but he has allegedly reached out to Jackson’s family for the “rights” to use the term. There are so many things wrong with this. For instance, how do you give yourself the title? Isn’t that for the public to decide? And can we give the Jackson’s more time to get themselves together? There are fans that are still mourning his death, so just imagine what the family must be going through and feeling at this point. True, there may be some sort of void now since some people may feel as though the title needs to be passed on, but that is something that the fans and fans alone will decide.

Kanye talked about taking his ego down a notch a few weeks ago, but that state of mind has clearly passed and he is back at it again. What else would you expect? Although Kanye has not sold nearly as many albums, has not had nearly the longevity (Michael Jackson hadn’t recorded an album in who knows how long, and he would still sell out concerts), and even though he is very popular throughout the world, still doesn’t have the star power of Michael Jackson. There are stories circling all over the internet about Kanye’s statements, but here is one of them.

Update: Kanye West denies new “King of Pop” comments. Check out his official blog here to see what he had to say. Although it’s a good thing it isn’t true, isn’t it still sad that Kanye’s ego has gotten to the point that we could actually fathom that he would say something like this?
