Lizzo has sparked debate by labelling Justin Bieber the “prince of pop".
Lizzo has sparked a controversial debate on Twitter after declaring her pop-royalty rankings.
The 'Rumours' singer crowned a King and Queen of pop, as well as a Prince and Princess.
Lizzo took to Twitter to make some bold statements, as she shared her rankings for some pop icons.
The singer posted a tweet where she crowed Michael Jackson the "King of Pop" with his sister Janet, labelled the "Queen of Pop".
The 33 year old continued, tweeting: "Prince of pop- Bieber Princess of Pop- Britney Spears"
However, Lizzo's judgments resulted in mixed reactions from fans, with one even saying they've removed three of her songs from their playlist.
The angry tweeter continued: "I didn't see you as one of those divisive figure in the music world... good luck to you with that... '
Continuing: "LOL We do not tolerate Queen of POP - M A D O N N A Slander".
