“I think I should play Prince in the biopic,” Mensa begins. “Prince is one of my biggest idols of all time, and he’s the real King of Pop. Some people will be mad that I said that.

Last year, TMZ approached Miguel on his thoughts as to whether he’d ever consider playing Prince in a biopic. The “Skywalker” crooner declined, expaining, “Prince played Prince in a biopic… It doesn’t get any better than that.” Even after being pressed again regarding the hot topic, Miguel was adamant in his decision. “I would probably tell them that they’re insane and they should just probably let his movie and his legacy live on the way it is.”
