Kanye West is fuming about new reports he's taken over Michael Jackson's King of Pop title in the wake of the singer's death a month ago (25Jun09).
The rapper has issued a blog posting to fans explaining he's upset by fake comments that have been made online on his behalf.
West writes, "It makes me feel bad that obviously I made people feel that I would be corny enough to say something so whack after the passing of an idol, a legend and more than that a human being with feelings and a family.
"Not only did I not say that, I haven’t said anything."
The Stronger hitmaker adds, "Any random person can type something on the Internet and then the world believes it. I don’t talk to press or do TV or do promotions of any sort. I’ve stopped chasing and buying into fame. Fame is like cigarettes with no surgeon general warning.
"It destroys most people as it did to the true and only King of Pop. We exploit ourselves and eat our own egos.
"I have a feeling that this won’t be the last false statement with my name on it, but this will be the last time I defend myself."
West denies stating, "It's so sad to see Michael gone but it makes a path for a new King of Pop and I'm willing to take that on... First there was Elvis (Presley), then there was Michael, now in the 21st century it's Kanye's time to rule. I am the new King of Pop."

I think kanye shouldn't be the king of pop. Cause micheal has died and he should think about his family and how they will feel. Because someone has taken over there dads title, and I think kanye is kinda carp any how.
