Randomly doing a bit of late night reading on both. Who does NT think has had a bigger impact globally?
cause when Michael died, tears was shed (moms damn near went into withdrawal for like a week) and he has a bigger legacyOriginally Posted by RedMan
For the NTers who are saying Mike, may you provide reasons.
Since Mike made music for 40 years, I really think his fanbase is bigger.Originally Posted by Durden7
Bigger impact? MJ. Bigger fanbase? Rowlings.
This is an apples vs. oranges comparison though. One was an artist/icon, the other is a writer. One is famous for creating other characters, one is famous for being himself. The only similarity between the two is that they are able to reach a wide-spread audience.

I never understood apples vs oranges because the question is who is better at what they do/did.
Is Rex Grossman a better QB than Ronaldo was a forward? Hell no. Although your comparing different sports, you can still gauge how good they were within their respective realms.
The question is who had a bigger impact, not who is better at their craft.
Maybe I misinterpreted what the question truly was, but from I understand it's who had the bigger impact on society. Just based off of what MJ did for a living, he has the advantage in the platform for having an impact.
I dont want to sound like im discrediting Rowlings either. She has a massive fanbase, but what she does just doesnt create a lasting impact on society.
