Mike Tyson Makes a Shocking Revelation About the Michael Jackson – Prince Fiasco: I’mma Show You How Dirty He Is


Michael Jackson and Prince were the infamous pop stars in the 1980s. While they were born two months apart, the former skyrocketed to fame in a short spurt of time.

The two did not hesitate to show their dislike toward each other irrespective of time and place. And former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson pointed out one such case from 1983. In an episode of his Hotboxin’ podcast, Mike Tyson shared an infamous feud between the two pop stars and explained what Mickael Jackson did to embarrass Prince in front of a big crowd.


Mike Tyson shows a different side of Michael Jackson

In a recent podcast episode, Mike Tyson was joined by American rapper Tony Yayo. And he showed him a rather different side of the legendary pop star. The 56-year-old shared the infamous video of Jackson trying to humiliate Prince at a concert. This conversation started as Yayo asked about Prince running Jackson over with his car.

The video Tyson shared was from the 1983 James Brown concert, where Jackson and Prince were in attendance. ‘Iron’ Mike said he wanted his guest to know how “dirty” Jackson was. In the video, Jackson is seen making his way to the stage at the request of James Brown. MJ rocked it with his vocals and signature moves. And as he gets to Brown, it can be clearly seen that Jackson whispers something into Brown’s ear.


Tyson clarified that Jackson whispered to Brown to call Prince on the stage. On a separate event, per Quincy Jones too, Jackson said, “Call Prince up — I dare him to follow me.” As weird as this request might seem, Tyson claimed that the “MoonWalk” creator wanted ‘Purple’ to come up on the stage because Prince was drunk. After a while, Prince came up on the stage, and it was not a memorable night for the pop star. Not long ago, a picture of Tyson and Jackson caused a stir among fans when it surfaced online.



Why was there a feud between Michael Jackson and Prince?

With their professional success, they were meant to be compared against each other. But, Michael Jackson did not like being compared to Prince. And he made that clear on many occasions. At Brown’s concert, after pulling off a Jimi Hendrix impression on the guitar, Prince howled into the mic, fell into the crowd, and dragged a lamp post with him. After the unceremonious incident, Jackson’s reactions were the kind that was fueled by embarrassment.

This led to their professional rivalry turning personal, as seen in the James Brown concert. Jackson later commented, “He made a fool of himself. He was a joke…People were running and screaming. I was so embarrassed. It was all on video.” Comparisons drew a line between them professionally, and they never went along.
