Jay-Z Thinks Beyonce Is the Next Michael Jackson

The music mogul compares his wife's talents to those of the beloved King of Pop

It looks like Beyonce's biggest fan is also her husband! Music mogul Jay-Z, who typically keeps quiet about their marriage, recently surprised fans by opening up about the admiration he has for his wife of three years.

According to MTV's Rap Fix, Jay recently compared his 29-year-old wife's talents to those of the late Michael Jackson.

"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-Z, 41, said during a phone call to Miami, Fla., radio station 99 Jamz.

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

Jay is no slouch himself, as the rapper-producer is currently promoting a huge new album collaboration, Watch the Throne, with Kanye West. On Sunday, he was on hand for an album release party in Miami, where guests reportedly sipped on $250,000 worth of champagne.

Jay-Z and Beyonce may just be the biggest power couple music has ever seen. And we're not at all surprised that their mutual admiration for each other continues to make them better artists.
