Beyonce has joined the long list of celebrities paying tribute to Michael Jackson, who died on Thursday (25Jun09).
The R&B superstar insists the Thriller hitmaker will never be challenged as the King of Pop and June 25 will always be remembered as "a terrible day."
She says, "The incomparable Michael Jackson has made a bigger impact on music than any other artist in the history of music. He was magic. He was what we all strive to be. He will always be the King of Pop.
"For anyone who has ever seen, felt, or heard his art, we are all honoured to have been alive in this generation to experience the magic of Michael Jackson. I love you Michael."
Another leading lady, Liza Minnelli, has also paid tribute to the late pop superstar, calling Jackson a "kind, genuine, and wonderful man."
Jackson was among her wedding party when she married David Gest and she adds, "He was also one of the greatest entertainers that ever lived. I loved him very much and I will miss him every remaining day of my life."
