Both popular as adults in the same era .Michael of course in the 60s as a child in the Jackson five. But in the 80s they were very popular worldwide with white and black audiences .They were breakthrough black artists who overcame the black R&B label. They played funky pop music. They both have rabid fans who love and defend them no matter what.
Both are excessive, over the top and also sensitive. Both use sex and are a-sexual. Both gifted and talented.Both eccentric reclusive odd withdrawn superstars.Both great songwriters ,collaborators,and producers. Prince the more diverse musician over time and he can play any instrument.Jackson the better dancer and he is more widely popular. But still similar in so many ways. Great entertainers,singers, and icons.
So who do you like better? Prince or Michael Jackson? For me Prince.
