Guess that would mean MJ is the God of pop, right? Rihanna recently did a stunning new cover spread for Harper’s Bazaar China. 

The pictures on the photo shoot were dynamic but it was one of the captions for Instagram that is catching people’s eye. One post called Rihanna the “King of Pop.” Of course, that designation has been placed upon Michael Jackson for years.

Followers on social media got into the debate over the caption as well as if Rihanna’s attire in the magazine screams cultural appropriation.

In case you forgot, Rihanna was named the wealthiest female musician in the world. Read that story here. 

Does Rihanna rank with Michael or is there no comparison?
