The reason people thought they were rivals was because of the rumor that Bad was dissing Prince because he turned him down for being a feature.

The rumor started in the early 80's (1983) and BAD was released in 1987.

The media started it.


MJ and Prince were two of the biggest male pop stars at the time. They were both talented, both won awards, both were constantly on radio and tv, both were handsome, and both very popular at the time.


The media pinned them against one another. There are many many publications during this period that compares them and questions which one is better.

These are 1983 publications

I don't know. I think MJ was a hell of a lot taller than Prince.

Height doesn't mean crap.

He would have just crumbled like a log.

That's a pretty weird choice of simile. When I think "log" I think of something heavy and unyielding.
