Michael Jackson is known for the title of King of Pop King of Pop is also trademarked by the Jackson Estate.

Taj Jackson, nephew of the late Michael Jackson tweeted to “Rolling Stone, there is no new King of Pop. You don’t own the title @RollingStone and you didn’t earn it, my uncle did. Decades of dedication and sacrifice. The title has been retired. No disrespect to Harry Styles, he’s mega talented. Give him his own unique title.”
