Wasn't Chris Rock talking about Prince vs. Rick James?  Still, seeing as how Prince's career is still going, he gets my vote.

Mike round one, Prince round two, Prince round three. Prince found religion and Mike lost his.

They are both musical artifacts of the 80's-early 90's. But M.J. by rights should be on a Megan's law website and all Prince did was Vanity, Kim Basinger, Sheena Easton and Mayte.

Prince pwns Michael Jackson.

Prince is the superior musician and performer. No contest.

And, you know, not insane.

Well, he's a bit crazy. Just not Jesus-juice-in-a-themepark-crazy.
So yeah, Prince.

Agreed.  Don't forget, writer, arranger and producer.  Oh and there is that little thing about the all star roster in his little black book.  Oh to be Prince for a week.  First phone call?  Sheila E!

PRINCE

Though I agree with Hypestyle that for years I've imagined what would happen if Prince
produced an entire Michael Jackson album. I bet that would be insane (& it's the only way
I'd ever buy another album from that sick child molestor).

You know I actually went back and compared all thier songs. ALL OF THEM. Mike has a lot more hits than Prince. Yeah he's weird now but personalities aside and just plain music. I go with Jackson.

I never had a jheri curl, but I had the pleather Beat It jacket when I was 12, & wore it to school
every day for a year. I loved Jacko back then.

True, but Prince has way more good songs. All Michael has are hits. But take away all the singles that have been released from his albums, & what's left. Prince has great songs that were just B-sides or album cuts. Most of my favorite Prince songs, Hello, Pope, 17 Days, Tick Tick Bang, Horny Toad, Last Heart, & MANY others, were never released. But they're just as good as Little Red Corvette or any of his other singles.
