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?
