Michael Jackson was the worlds favorite entertainer, but does that necessarily mean that Mr. Jackson was a good artist? The argument is that Prince was a true artist because he crafted his own sound that was adored by fans and used by other entertainers. Prince composed and wrote his own music. Michael Jackson purchased songs and modified there sound. In my opinion there is not distinction between artist and entertainer. Michael Jackson moved fans to tears and had enormous mass appeal. Michael Jackson is true GOAT and better than Prince.
