Except there's no such honour!

The confusion started when Britney Spears introduced him on stage to present him with a cake for his 44th birthday.

Britney said that, for her, Jackson was the artist of the millennium.

Emotional speech

Britney just wants to say Happy Birthday
But Jacko thought he was being honoured as the greatest singer of the last 1,000 years!

He even gave a speech in front of the celeb-packed audience and millions of TV viewers.

He thanked God, his parents and the magician David Blaine.

MTV said it was a all "a bit of a misunderstanding".
