It has been spreading that Kanye West called himself the King of Pop and it hasn't been recieved well by the public. Kanye is known to have said some off the wall things, Lol. But I'm glad he has spoken out about this rumor. Kanye heard this rumor while listening radio host Wendy Williams. Also the Chicago Star allegedly quoted Kayne in saying, “First there was Elvis, then there was Michael, now in the 21st century its 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.” So with hearing this Kanye quickly denied these statements on his website kayneuniversity.com according to allhiphop.com
“I was just listening to Wendy Williams and heard some quote about me saying I’m the new King of Pop. Not only did I not say that, I haven’t said anything,” Kanye explained. “It makes me feel bad that obviously I made people feel that I would be corny enough to say something wack after the passing of an idol, a legend and more than that, a human being with feelings and family.”
Kanye goes on to express his feelings about the media/rumors and says this is the last time he will defend himself.
“It scares me to think what people will believe, without even a source. Any random person can type something on the internet and then the world believes it,” Kanye stated. “I don’t talk to press or do TV or do promotions of any sort. I’ve stopped chasing and buying into fame. Fame is like cigarettes with no surgeon general warning. It destroys most people as it did to the truly and only King of Pop. We exploit ourselves and eat our own egos until there is nothing left. I have a feeling this won’t be the last false statement with my name on it, but this will be the last time I defend myself. I’m done.”
