Why Michael Jackson is the ‘King of Bread’ and not the ‘King of Pop’

To make a clear statement. Michael Jackson is dead. Like Elvis Presley, Freddy Mercury, Tupac Shakur, and many other people as well. No doubts about that. No chance for conspiracy theories. No fake news. No secret second life after giving up the first public one.
