Best (musical) ARTIST? Most of Mike's best music can be attributed to other people's musical gifts... Prince on the other hand was directly responsible for everything that came out of
Team Purple.... GAME BLOUSES...

Mike will go down as more of an icon but Prince was definitely the better artist.

Better vocalist. That falsetto.

Better songwriter.

Could play like 20 instruments and was the more versatile artist.

Musicianship and artistry do not begin or end with playing instruments.

The reality is that you can play a million instruments but if in the end, the result is not as well received as an artist who utilizes a team, it's your fault. Remember, artistry is much bigger than instrumentation, it's about vision, it's about production, it's about having an ear and the ability to create masterpiece records whether you played all the instruments or not. Michael Jackson may not be able to use an MPC 4000 but he was able to beat box what he wanted and have someone else actually program the drums for him...that doesn't make him any less a musician...it just means he doesn't know how to use an MPC 4000.

No one can take anything away from Prince, he's an amazing artist and very technically skilled...but that's within the confines of European music theory. When it comes to raw talent, vision, and production Michael Jackson wins by a mile. He has a stronger, more timeless catalog...his stage shows were much more electrifying as well. But the biggest sign that Michael Jackson is the greatest is the fact that you can put Smooth Criminal on for a toddler right now and they will have that same joy and twinkle in their eye that we had when we first watched it. Prince doesn't have that same effect, his music doesn't resonate with people like Mike's did. You can say it's all because of Quincy and Teddy Riley but why didn't they make another Mike? Why were Mike's records still as awesome when he switched producers? It's because the end results were Mike's vision...

Quincy's hottest tracks were with Mike.

Teddy's hottest records were with Mike.

What's the common denominator in those two statements? Mike.

ARTIST: a person who works in one of the performing arts, as an actor, musician, or singer; a public performer: a mime artist; an artist of the dance.

Your 100% right man. I let my biased toward Prince sway me. PROPS for being objective!

Some of you Princ fans are clueless as fu*k and don't deserve an opinion saying dumbsh*t like that. Michael was an incredible song writer and wrote & composed most of his biggest hits BY HIMSELF. Read the thread before commenting next time.

Calm down there guy, I too think "Mike walked on water" and I've already corrected my position. Nice to people are still passionate though!

Have people looked up the definition of artist and entertainer?! Artist = Prince entertainer = MJ. If you're not biased at all then this isn't even a debate at all

Yup...and most of the tracks that Michael Jackson didn't write he hummed the way he wanted the lyrics to flow and then brought a songwriter in to just write the words. On the re-releases of some of his albums they include the demos MJ made which detail the huge role he had in the production of his music. People trying to make him look like he's one of these new age manufactured artists are a joke.

it wasn't him!!! that changed they way we watch videos....It was the Record Label hiring Actual Film Directors to give his Videos that Cinema feel....

I Love Mike as Much as everyone else..but come on....

Thriller was Compose and Arrange by Quincey Jones... and a lot of writers...

Check Prince Credits!!!!!

Thats like asking me who's the Better Artist A.Keys or Beyonce!!

I would say A.Keys hands down!!! She can Write a Hit Song by her Self...And Play the Instruments to go with that song!!!

All Beyonce Do is Sing,songs people Write for her..and Dance..

Entertainer=Elvis
Better Artist= Bob Marley
dude are you serious?

anyone who worked with mike would say what a genius he was. he was the creative brilliance behind those music videos/mini-movies. he HIRED directors to carry out his vision


Thriller was not composed and written by quincy and a lot of writers. mike produced much of the songs with quincy and the songs he didnt write he was behind the production of them. Plus every album after Thriller was mostly mike writing and producing the material.

mike also played instruments as well. guitar and piano and some others.

its funny how just because this n*gga didnt get on stage and play an instrument people believe he didnt know how.


im not disregarding prince as an artist but as i said he DID NOT write and produce all his own music. any producers or writers who worked with him put all the credit under his name. he paid them but didnt have their names on the writing and production credits. at least michael wasnt so vain and up his own a.ss that he didnt disregard the people who worked with him.

Am I the only one who thinks both were gay or at least Bi?

MJ was hardly ever seen with women and seemed more feminine than masculine off the stage while Prince did fu*k mad bi*ches but wore some of the most sus sh*t that would put Chris Brown to shame.
