Jay-Z Proclaims Beyonce "Second Coming" of Michael Jackson

by at . Comments

After three years of marriage, Jay-Z and wife Beyonce remain very private, but that doesn't mean he's not willing to gush about her occasionally.

Forget Watch the Throne, his smash, acclaimed new album with Kanye West. In Jay's estimation, the biggest star around is the woman he married.

Why does he liken Beyonce to the greatest entertainer ever?

"What I've learned from her is similar to what I learned from Mike [Jackson] - I know that's blasphemy to compare the two because Mike was such an innovator - but I think she's like the second coming," Jay-Z told Miamia's 99 Jamz.

"You know, the hard work and dedication that she puts into her shows. It just makes you want to work harder at your own craft. She's like a machine."

No question, she's one of the hardest working and most successful figures in music today. Jay-Z knows a once-in-a-generation talent when he sees it.

What do you think? Is Beyonce worthy of MJ comparisons?

Jay Z must have read my postings. I said the exact same thing 6,7 months ago on YouTube. Bey does have a lot in common w/ MJ. She studied and researched elder artists & peers, including MJ, as MJ did in his days of youth. She also works extremely hard until she perfects her techniques ..and no she doesnt just shake and pop her cooch. Seemingly, it's what ppl remember the most about her b/c she does it extremely well, obviously. She learns & combines dances & music from many different cultures & is creative, as MJ. Bey's learning range is amazing b/c like MJ she is a perfectionist and like MJ has always LOVED ENTERTAINING since she was a child. Lastly, like MJ, she is a quiet philanthropist. Humble in her own way. She still has one more obligation to fulfill before she could carry his torch tho ..and that is to make music a life time career, and devote her life to her fans.
