Comments on: Who crowned the King of Pop? http://blogs.reuters.com/gbu/2009/07/08/who-crowned-the-king-of-pop/ Reader reaction to Reuters news Fri, 18 Nov 2011 06:49:03 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Darslow http://blogs.reuters.com/gbu/2009/07/08/who-crowned-the-king-of-pop/comment-page-1/#comment-347527 Tue, 07 Jun 2011 01:22:09 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/gbu/?p=13573#comment-347527 Oh, you have got to be kidding me. I see where people are saying that MJ promoted himself as the King of Pop, but have not provided any proof that he said this. Just because the people at the news conference introduced him as the King of Pop doesn’t mean that he told them to say it. And still, he did not say it. Also, Elizabeth Taylor loudly proclaimed that MJ was the King of Pop, Rock, and Soul at the Soul train music awards in 1989 or 90.

They did indeed introduce him as King of Pop, and I thought to myself what an ego Michael Jackson must have. Either that or he is terribly insecure. He was a self promoting artist at the highest level. I guess after 40 years in show business you would learn a few things.

Although deservedly I remember being mildly appalled when seeing that and saying to myself that I couldn’t imagine Elvis Presley doing that.

Very much like Elvis Presley..
