Wacko was basically seventies and eighties bubblegum pop. He then wasted many years being a tabloid clown. Elizabeth Taylor did not know anything about music to call the clown anything, especially since she was an aging movie actress from the forties. Wacko gave the hag diamonds and the two attended some Hollywood red carpet events together as has been freaks. Wacko gave himself the title of king of poop. He certainly wasn't rock, he had no soul and the watered down hip hop that Wacko had overdubbed on "Thriller 25" were done by untalented hacks. Michael Jackson was not the king of anything musical. Maybe Prince should start using that title since Prince has put out over forty-five albums of material since his debut release in 1978. Michael Jackson was too busy molesting under aged boys to work on his laughable career. He has the record for the most failures going back to the days of The Jackson Five and The Jacksons. Not one number one album in sight until his first, which was "Thriller" The clown's overblown hype continues with Sony but we all know that Wacko was only massed produced junk for the five year old set from the eighties. Time has not been kind to Jacko The Clown.

I rather believe that Bob Jones began giving that nickname in 1987. He said "king of pop, rock and soul" was the original idea, then they shortened it to "pop" around 1991.

A floating turd in a toilet bowl has more soul than Jacko The Clown. And when did Michael Jackson ever rock? He couldn't even play any musical instruments much less guitar. Rock is music done in the studio or on stage. The clown danced and lip synced to his pre-recordings. The best Wacko could be possibly described as is dated bubblegum pop and aging eighties dance music. In that case, Michael Jackson is not the king of anything except maybe the king of clowns.

Playing any kind of instrument was far too manly for a puny sap like Wacko.

Though I have heard several times that he was credited with clapping his hands on one of his albums.

What an achievement.

Yeah, I've read that Wacko was actually credited with clapping his hands on one of his albums. Like only a "genius" can come up with that. Michael Jackson was as dumb as a stone. Obviously, he attracts people just like him. I laughed at the clown popping his wide clown mouth and calling his retarded snapping lips "beatboxing" Wacko acted if he invented everything musical. The clown was grossly untalented. His dancing is even over rated.

Wacko wasn't playing the piano in his Pepsi commercial. The clown hired somebody to record the piece and sat behind the piano like he knew how to play. The clown was a compulsive liar that even lied about being the first black artist played on MTV. That was obviously false. Musical Youth "Pass The Dutchie" was two years before Jacko's "Bille Jean" and Eddie Grant's "Electric Avenue" was one year before the lying clown even thought of making a video.

Michael Jackson definely was a hack and a fraud. He was a dumb manipalator of lies. He molested scores of young boys behind the soiled walls of his perverted Neverland lair.

Trying to take the credit away from Sugar Hill Gang who had the first known rap hit with "Rapper's Delight" in 1979?

Wacko just incorporated rap into some of his later recordings to try and appeal to kids. And even so, it wasn't very good. They even come up with Christain rap, which is banal. You confuse contemporary music as being a good thing for the industry. That is exactly why sales keep declining every year. It is Michael Jackson's fault because the pop acts today suck. They all brag they are influenced by the clown. Not exactly creative.

Yeah, I agree with tbe Suguar HIll Gang comments. They the first one to start this whole rap thing and bringing it into the mainstream. Without them, there wouldn't be no 2pac or Biggie.

Going back to the roots of where rap started and Michael Jackson had nothing to do with that. Yet, floons want to give him the credit for inventing hip hop, which is totally delusional. I remember Blondie's "Rapture" in 1981. Michael Jackson was pop, disco or r&b.

King of the Lip Synching dancers who would not do so well if they had to depend on their live vocals.
