Jay Z - The Things They Say 22567


"What I've learnt from her is similar to what I learnt from him - 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. The hard work and dedication that she puts into her shows. It just makes you want to work harder at your own craft." Jay Z compares his superstar wife Beyonce to late legend Michael Jackson.

Will someone please teach him English. As good as Beyonce is even she would NOT compare herself to the likes of MICHAEL JACKSON!!! Jay-Z should know better. Michael Jackson was one of a kind and he will never be duplicated. I wish all the musicians in show business will STOP TRYING. They need to show how much they loved him and appreciate his contribution to all of their lives and career and become their own person.

Give me a break, PLEASE! She's a good musician, but......NO musician today, or in the future, will ever make the contributions to, & influences toward music that Michael did. He was an icon, a legend, & yes, he was The King of music, period, not only pop music. It seems ONLY the young, simple-minded youth of today's generation, (@ least the ones afraid to think for themselves & seek out the ABSOLUTE FACTS regarding Michael, & his amazing career), or the older, "tabloid only" reading simpletons that will always believe anything they hear on a talk show, or read from the greedy, no moral paparazzis, without giving an ounce of effort to getting to the FACTS of any story, which is exactly why Michael endured the hurtful rumors regarding child molestation for so many yrs,, which, (conveniently enough) was the very topic he held nearest & dearest to his heart- the plight of sick, underprivileged, or starving children around the world. Michael withstood more hurt & stress than any human being should ever be made to endure, all of which stemmed from jealousy & greed, plain & simple. Those of us who kept up w/ the real Michael Jackson, the FACTS only, were forced to be put on the defensive regarding his character because we supported & loved him, which has always made me sick, so I can only imagine how bad it affected him personally! Now that he's gone, people are continuing to attempt to profit from him. He was truly made to suffer b/c of hate, rumors, & greed. He got down @ times over the constant circus which was his life in the spotlight, but he never let the bastards keep him down for long. His fans were always his driving force to perform. Like all of us, he wasn't perfect, (nor did he claim to be), but He was many moons closer than his jealous counterparts by far. God Bless You forever Michael. I know you're at peace now, finally. We all have our judgement day coming, including those who hurt you, & unlike man's justice, God's is sure, swift, & eternal. I will always miss your beautiful smile, although you have left us the timeless gift of your music, which will live on forever.

Amen MichaelnMyHeart, very well said! :)Michael IS the King of music, HE paved the road for others who followed in his shadow. He will never be replaced, there is not one person who could even come close to Michael's contribution to the music world, not now, not ever.
