The clown thought he was special. He treated people badly and once he was done using them, he would dump them like trash. I do not think Wacko was a decent person.

Michael thought he was god and could do anything he pleased. This included thumbing his nose at decency by sleeping one-on-one with other people's children.

I'd like to take a moment to reflect upon the greatness of Prince's classic soundtrack album, "Purple Rain" which made Prince a musical legend that is still respected for almost thirty-two years. Of course, we know it was Prince's very first film and he was the star. In Wacko's case, he had to share second billing to Diana Ross in the laughable golden turkey, "The Wiz" Prince certainly destroyed Michael Jackson with real music written, produced and played by the artist himself. Wacko the clown needed Quincy Jones, Paul McCartney and Eddie Van Halen to made the dated "Thriller" a success. Prince made ALL his recordings himself. Prince is still alive and making music. He plays instruments live on stage. No lip syncing. Prince is truly the KING. Michael Jackson died nude and alone of his crippling drug addictions. He was a disgusting clown that took advantage of young boys sexually and used their bodies to pleasure himself without caring who he hurt. Prince only sleeps with adult women who are models, back up singers and musicians. The clown hated women and only desired small tots barely out of diapers. Michael Jackson was a chicken hawk. Prince is definitely the winner. The true king of popular music. Congrats to Prince Nelson, who made his first album in the year 1978. Many Prince classics followed. Wacko was dethroned back in 1993 when he paid Jordan Chandler twenty-two million dollars to drop child molestation charges and stay quiet.

Bingo! Just like Elvis, he slept with only consenting female adults. I should add there's nothing wrong with that, either. Whereas, MJ was a major train wreck, for sure.

We actually loved the "Purple Reign" show. It was playing in a very small nightclub at Hooters in Las Vegas. Believe or not, our honeymoon was for two weeks and we had to have some inexpensive nights. That was one of them. Believe it not, the guy who did Prince was kick ass. It was a blast and Hooters made an awesome late night breakfast with the best coffee in Vegas.

I certainly agree with you that Michael Jackson sucks. However, the excellent Prince impersonator played guitar and did all the old classic Prince stuff live on stage. I must say that I was really surprised. I certainly would not have sat there for two hours if I thought the show was horrible. It was a good time out and we did not break the bank that night. Today's rap sucks, but some of the old school hip hop is not bad. You must be narrow minded.

Any artist who came immediately after the blockbuster album thriller to release a#1 album on top for 24 consecutive weeks has to be considered a bigger artist than michael Jackson. Michael is simply just an entertainer. Prince is a prodigy genius of entertainment performance and acting personality that provided the definition for an entire world generation alive in the1980s. He is the definition of pop....a trendsetter of style clothes hair wit and musicianship that remains relevant 4ever. The Prince fan base keeps growing with younger fans listening. Props and pounds to pop daddy of pfunk.

Wacko entertained brain dead white boys like the drug addicted Aaron carter and mc culkin.
He told them to smoke weed and drive drunk. That was how mc got arrested.

Prince's album and film for "Purple Rain" was a major breakthrough for rock n roll and r&b to coexist side by side on music television as young adult/teen audiences flocked to see Prince in his own starring role blockbuster instead of just the five year old set that was dancing to Michael Jackson's kiddie Thriller, which was like watching Saturday morning cartoons . Prince was the real deal, while the clown might have well been Barney or the Cookie Monster. That is why the grasshopper screwed up big. His fans were children and the pedophile took advantage of the fact that he presented himself as child like. On the other hand, Prince just continued racking up hit albums and singles. Prince also had smash hits by other artists that covered his songs. Prince delivered strong song writer abilities, acting skill, is an expert producer, arranger, instrumentalist and live stage performer. Michael Jackson was just another dancing clown that waited too long before finally releasing his next project. In fact, Prince got better and better. while Wacko got stale and rusty.

Prince wins every time.

I recently checked out Prince's amazing guitar solo at the rock n roll hall of fame's tribute to ex Beatle George Harrison. Tom Petty sang the lead on "My Guitar Gently Weeps" It is on You Tube. I was blown away that Prince is possibly just as good as Jimi Hendrix was at his best. He should do more of that type of music. Prince is obviously very misunderstood but can play multiple instruments, especially in the studio and live on stage.

Michael Jackson convinced floons that he created a new way to play beats by smacking his lips together. He called it beat boxing. Of course, any mentally challenged person in a group home can make that same sound in their chairs as they rock back and forth. The spittle and drool shooting out of their mouths. It is hilarious that Wacko is on candid camera singing Green Giant to his mannequin. Floons think the clown was a musical genius. Imagine if Prince went on Oprah Winfrey and popped his lips together instead of actually playing guitar?

Floons were easily impressed by the clown's laughable beat boxing. It is definitely extremely embarrassing that Wacko claimed that he was a musician, even though there is no evidence in forty long years of Wacko playing any musical instrument in the studio or on stage.

Prince destroys Michael Jackson. The Artist Formerly Known As Prince should be crowned the king of pop. More talented, sold more albums, has more hits and is still alive. The Purple one reigns while Michael Jackson rots alone in his lonely coffin in Forest Lawn cemetery under the hot sun.

Prince was the top selling male artist in the eighties and nineties, without the phony hype that pedophile Michael Jackson received. The reality of Prince's massive catalog of albums vs the handful released by the lazy child rapist, we can be certain that the still alive artist formerly known as Prince is definitely outselling the dead Michael Jackson ten to one. It is on the lonely and dead Michael Jackson forum because everyone around back then knew who was really the one and only THE KING OF POP, ROCK, SOUL, FUNK AND R&B.

Prince.

While Wacko was paying off boys, crawling in bed with more boys, getting accused of sexual battery with exposing his disgusting spotted penis and getting sued in court, Prince was making movies, selling out concerts and having multiple hit albums and singles every year. The dancing clown barely worked on making music and that is why Justin Bieber has almost as many albums as MJ.

Michael Jackson had forty years and the list below is what is the bulk of his solo catalog:

Off The Wall
Thriller
Bad
Dangerous
History
Invincible
This Is Shit
Michael
Immortal
Xscape

Prince wins the golden crown once again.
