Who gets to decide that they are pop royalty? I thought the people elected and crowned. But, I guess this is shit ain’t a democracy. Our favorite weirdo Mr. West declared yesterday that he was up next, stating:

“You know everyone loves and respects Michael but times change. It’s so sad to see Michael gone but it makes a path for a new King of Pop and I’m willing to take that on. There’s nobody who can match me in sales and in respect so it only makes sense for me to take over Michael’s crown and become the new King,” said West. “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.” Source

I guess he forgot about poor Beyonce being a viable candidate. She’s likely somewhere thinkin’ “girl bye” just like the rest of us but hell maybe he has a point. Fake it til you make it, Kanye!!
