Paris Jackson has Kanye West’s back! After fans expressed their disgust with Ye breaking Michael Jackson’s Top 40 hits record, Paris was quick to defend Kanye by saying he ‘worked hard’ and totally ‘earned it.’ See what Paris said about Yeezy right here!
When it was first announced that Kanye had surpassed Michael for the most top 40 hits by a male artist (he now has 40, to Michael’s 39), MJ fans were outraged that a rapper would be the one to take Michael’s place. But it wasn’t until one particular fan posted a nasty Instagram comment about Kanye that Paris felt it was necessary to put an end to the backlash.
“I’m f***ing mad screw kanye west for knocking micheal off the chart for the most 40hits or whatever if micheal was still here God he whould have passed kayne,” the fan wrote. Paris didn’t just shut the fan down — she declared that Michael was actually a big fan of Kanye’s!
After explaining that Michael was the reason that she knew Kanye’s 808s & Heartbreak album, Paris told the fan that MJ liked Ye. Moreover, she said that Michael “never saw music as a competition or a game” and always focused on the “love and respect and appreciation for music.” Because of this, Paris said that she was actually happy for Kanye and his the accomplishment he “worked hard” for!
“So if someone breaks a new record, be happy for them. they worked hard for it and they earned it,” Paris continued. “Don’t be angry or jealous or bias. music is music and if it’s good it deserves recognition.”
Sounds like MJ taught his daughter to appreciate music the way he did, huh? Now that Paris has spoken for her late father, we’re thinking fans won’t be as bitter about Kanye taking over Michael’s spot — well, at least not publicly. Plus, Kanye may have cracked the top 10 of top 40 hit holders, but he’s still only halfway to the top spot held by Elvis Presley. So Michael’s fans can be happy Kanye isn’t No. 1…yet!
