Hmmm… this is news to us!
The King of Pop didn’t want to share his throne with His Royal Badness, as just-leaked recordings reveal.The tapes were recorded for Michael’s candid autobiography Moonwalker back in 1998, and here’s what he had to say about Prince.
Michael describes the Purple One as being “very competitive” and he did not like being “compared to Prince at all.”
Michael and Prince did meet, and Michael said Prince was “very star-struck” by him at first. Then, “He was so rude, one of rudest people I have ever met. He has been very mean and nasty to my family.”
“I have proven myself since I was real little. It’s not fair. He feels like I’m his opponent. I hope he changes because boy, he’s gonna get hurt. He’s the type that might commit suicide or something.”
Wow, those are pretty strong statements! And odd that Michael would name his son “Prince” considering the bad experiences, no?
What do you think of this rivalry between Michael Jackson and Prince?
