I never understood this comparison. It's like comparing a bedroom to a dance floor.

Is it because they're both flamboyant stars who wear costumes?

I don't know. I think most of Michael Jackson's talent lied as a performer. That said, he puts so much energy into it which made him enjoyable to watch. The dude made speed seem like a sleeping tablet.

But he put the same amount of energy in his music and songwriting too.

I think he is incredibly underrated as an overall artist and singer.

It is possible to be great at both which he was...

I think people compare them because they were two of the biggest male pop stars of the 80's and early 90's.

The media also puts them up against one another as well alot so people assume there was some sort of rivalry between the two.

In reality MJ and Prince were really big fans of one another.

Prince called MJ a genius and said he motivated him. He has even defend him publicly. MJ attended Prince concerts and greatly admired him and Prince inspired him.

Prince covers MJ songs and Jackson 5 songs at his concerts all the time even while MJ was alive.


They hung out a few times and Prince was suppose to appear on Michael's "BAD" album because MJ really wanted to work him but Prince eventually decline and told MJ it would be a hit without him.


I am not sure why people compare them. They are apples and oranges.

MJ all the way! To be fair I've never really given Prince much of a chance, but Michael as an entertainer, musician, songwriter, dancer...just phenomenal.

The only way to entertain some people is to listen to them.

When Michael had recorded "We Are The World" he asked Prince to be apart of the song but for whatever reason Prince declined too. The song featured a number of different artists and the money made for the song was donated to Africa.

Michael then asked Prince to be a feature on his BAD album. He wanted Prince to appear in his BAD video and wanted him to be featured on the song.

Here is a video where Prince talks about this to Chris Rock
