In a rare moment of humility, Chris Brown has officially shut down comments that he’s better than the King of Pop.
While appearing on Big Boy TV, the ‘Beautiful People’ singer instantly shut down the comparison when the LA radio host asked the singer-songwriter: “You’ve always given it to Michael Jackson. But now you’re getting people where they say man Chris is better than [him]. “
To which Breezy slammed the idea as ‘cap’, meaning to lie or exaggerate; yes kids, sadly, I had to search up the term in Urban Dictionary.
He added: “My personal take on it is I wouldn’t even be breathing or even being able to sing a song if that man didn’t exist.
“So I don’t know if they look at it as the Jordan / Kobe thing but I can’t even look at it—[Jackson’s] light years ahead. ”
He continued: “There is no competing with him.
“Hell no. I got shrines of this man hanging up in my house. Hell nawI’m ain’t better than Michael Jackson. ”
Many took to Twitter agreeing with the singer, with one person writing: “Even Chris Brown doesn’t think he’s better than Michael Jackson.”
Another commented: “What has Chris Brown done that even remotely warrants his comparison to Michael Jackson like seriously.”

A third person savagely said: “Chris Brown hasn’t made a good song since like 2009.”
While another wrote: “Today’s generation does not respect musical legacies whatsoever. All they see is who’s charting now. In what world does Chris Brown’s influence, talent, or even success match Michael Jackson’s?
“That’s no shade to Chris but it’s the student Vs the teacher. There’s levels. ”
I don’t know they’re both extraordinary singers, dancers and had their fair share of legal woes, so drawing parallels is only natural.
Brown appeared on the radio show ahead of his upcoming album Breezy, which is set to be released later this week.
In the same interview, the ‘Turn Up The Music’ singer also revealed that he had recorded over 250 songs for his album; however, he quickly had to ‘scale’ it back and begin a thorough process of elimination.
“Too many of the songs sound in the same frequency. It’s like a show. You got the beginning, the climax, and then the end, ”Brown said.
“But I still want to give my audience at least two or three of the same and not release a whole album where every song sounds the same.”
