Rumors were swirling this week that Kanye West had boldly proclaimed himself to be the new King of Pop!

Several sources claimed Kanye made the following statement about himself and the late Michael Jackson:

“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.”

LOLL it's funny reading it now because alledgedly someone made the entire thing up! Kanye says he never made such a statement.

“I was just listening to [radio host] 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. It makes me feel bad that obviously I made people feel that I would be corny enough to say something so whack after the passing of an idol, a legend and more than that, a human being with feelings and family.”

He continued: “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. 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 true and only king of pop. We exploit ourselves and eat our own egos ’till there is nothing left. I have a feeling that 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.”

I agree Kanye...
