Kanye West New King Of Pop

Kanye West wants to become the next Michael Jackson.

The 'Love Lockdown' star believes he is capable of ascending to the musical throne the 'King of Pop' has left following his death in June.

Kanye told Scrape TV: "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 so it only makes sense for me to take over Michael's crown and become the new 'King'."

The hip-hop star also likened himself to another 'King' - Elvis Presley.

He said: "First there was Elvis, then there was Michael, now in the 21st century it is 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."
