Michael Jackson Fans Erupt As ‘Rolling Stone’ Crowns Harry Styles the “New King of Pop” in its First-Ever Global Issue

Published: Monday 22nd Aug 2022 by Rashad

‘Rolling Stone’ caused a few rolling eyes Monday (August 22) when it unveiled a peek at its first-ever global issue which features Harry Styles as its cover star.

Although his fans were pleasantly surprised on how he waxed honest about everything from his forthcoming films ‘Don’t Worry, Darling’ and ‘My Policeman’ to his relationship with actress Olivia Wilde, discussions around his sexuality, and more, the 28-year-old’s fans were forced to battle on his behalf to defend ‘Rolling’ referring to him as the “new King of Pop.”

Inciting a fiery debate on Twitter in the process, look inside to see highlights from his time with the publication.


“Sometimes people say, ‘You’ve only publicly been with women,’ and I don’t think I’ve publicly been with anyone. If someone takes a picture of you with someone, it doesn’t mean you’re choosing to have a public relationship or something,” he shared before later relaying, “I think everyone, including myself, has your own journey with figuring out sexuality and getting more comfortable with it.”


“Well, if I have kids at some point, I will encourage them to be themselves and be vulnerable and share.”


“I committed to doing it once a week. I felt like I exercise every day and take care of my body, so why wouldn’t I do that with my mind?”

    They’re just baiting. I don’t think we will ever see an artist come close to the personification of pandemonium that was Michael Jackson.

    LOL. This Queen can never be KING. Rolling Stone looking for clickbait, like billboard calling beyonce most important artist of the 21st century, and the century is barely 20 years old lol. It’s just opinion pieces designed for likes and retweets, not based in facts.

    You only see a michael jackson once in a century. Let’s stop crowning people with titles that don’t match their status.
    Harry styles doesn’t make people from 1 to 100 years old go crazy when his music drops. Michael jackson did!

  8. Vincent August 24, 2022
