Kanye West recently broke the record for the most Top 40 hits, seems some fans didn’t like that it was Michael Jackson‘s record he beat.
Michael’s daughter Paris Jackson came to the defense of Kanye West, after an irate fan after they declared “screw kanye west” in the caption to one of her Instagram photos. Paris revealed that her father was a big fan of Kanye’s.
She also added that Michael Jackson was never one for competition in music.
“@corey__young the first time i ever heard kanyes heartbreak album was from my dad, he played it for me all the time,” Paris Jackson wrote. “he liked him. he never saw music as a competition or a game, never had a motive to talk shit about other artists. it was always about the love and respect and appreciation for music. so if someone breaks a new record, be happy for them. they worked hard for it and they earned it. don’t be angry or jealous or bias. music is music and if it’s good it deserves recognition.”
