Harry Styles was described as the “new King of Pop” on the cover of “Rolling Stone” in 2022. Now La Toya Jackson is reacting to it for the first time.

The title “King of Pop” was once invented for the late former superstar Michael Jackson (1958-2009). After the music magazine “Rolling Stone” described Harry Styles (29, “Watermelon Sugar”) as the “new King of Pop” on the cover at the end of December 2022, Jackson’s older sister La Toya Jackson (67) has now reacted to the title being passed on for the first time.

La Toya on Michael Jackson: “I don’t think anyone can ever surpass him”

On KIIS FM’s “Kyle and Jackie O Show”. Jackson insisted that no one could surpass her brother and take the crown. “[Harry ist] a great entertainer. He is wonderful. I really believe that,” she told hosts Jackie “O” Henderson, 48, and Kyle Sandilands, 52. “I’m not biased, but I think my brother was and always will be the greatest of all time.” She continued: “He was incredible and I don’t think anyone can ever surpass him. I would like to meet the person who can do that.” But La Toya Jackson also made it clear that she “loves” Harry and believes he is a great artist in his own right.

The interview took place as part of the follow-up to “The Masked Singer Australia,” where she had been unmasked as Burger Gal the night before.
