Now that Michael Jackson is dead and hopefully will soon be buried and not a way for Joe Jackson to make a buck, Kanye West feels like it is time that a new King Of Pop be named and he figures no one would be better for it than him. He told Scrape TV,
“There's nobody who can match me in sales and in respect so it only makes sense for me to take over Michael's crown and become the new King. First there was Elvis [Presley], then there was Michael, now in the 21st century it's Kanye's time to rule. I have nothing but respect for Michael but someone needs to pick up where he left off and there's nobody better than me to do that. I am the new King of Pop.”
Wow, I really don't know how he ever gets his head inside a room. The whole King Of Pop thing isn't like a President. When one dies we don't have to name a successor the next day or anything. The world of pop doesn't go into a tailspin and the economies of the world come crashing down just because there is no one to hold the title of King Of Pop.
Kanye supposedly asked the Jackson family for their blessing of his new title. “Yeah, sorry to hear about your kid, dad, brother, or whatever. Listen, now that Michael is dead, we are going to need a new King Of Pop and face it I am better than Michael anyway and so I want your blessing to be the King Of Pop. Could you sign these for me please? I will throw in a couple of free copies of my CD. Thanks.”
