Jay-Z Compares Beyonce To Michael Jackson

Jay-Z may ruffle some feathers with his recent praise of his wife, superstar Beyonce. Jay compared Bey to the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson, in saying that he sees a lot of what made MJ great in his wife's work ethic and dedication.

"What I've learned from her is similar to what I learned from Mike [Jackson] - and 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 explained. "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."
