Story highlights

This is not the first time that Beyonce has compared to Michael Jackson.

Looks like Twitter users aren’t very pleased with Jay-Z comparing wife-singer Beyonce to legendary pop star Michael Jackson. During an appearance in a Twitter Space hosted by Alicia Keys which she launched to promote her album ‘KEYS’, Jay-Z made the controversial comparison. 

He said, “Bey’s gonna be mad at [me] for saying this but Michael Jackson never had a Coachella,” and added that she is an “an evolution” of the ‘Thriller’ icon. He said, “Because she watched him at nine” and added, “the kids are the same. Find me a concert that’s as culturally relevant and thrilling as Coachella. Beyoncé is gonna be one of the best singers we ever heard because she is such a student.”

This is not the first time that Beyonce has compared to Michael Jackson. In 2015, for example, Charlamagne Tha God said: “I think she’s the greatest entertainer that our generation has seen. I mean, the previous generation had Michael Jackson. But for our generation I think it’s Beyonce.”

“But Beyoncé, if she’s not already, she absolutely will be on that same level. She will be looked upon in the same regards, if not more, as Michael Jackson was. That’s just the truth to the matter. People hate when I say that, but you’ll see in the future. It’s gonna happen.”
