Cheryl Cole - Will.i.am Compares Cheryl Cole To Michael Jackson

Will.i.am believes Cheryl Cole is similar to Michael Jackson.

The Black Eyed Peas star - who manages the Girls Aloud singer - thinks Cheryl is as much as a perfectionist as the late 'Thriller' hitmaker, and claims her upcoming third solo album will be ''big''.

He said: ''I can't give too much away but Cheryl's album is going to be big. Like Michael Jackson she is a complete perfectionist. Unless she is 100 per cent happy with something she just won't put it out there.

''She has got some of the biggest artists and producers in the industry to work with her, not just because she is talented but because everybody who meets her loves her.''

Will.i.am believes Cheryl's genuine nature is what makes people warm to her.

He added to the Daily Star newspaper: ''She is one of the most likeable people in the industry and to be genuine is as important as talent.''

It was recently revealed Cheryl was the second richest young musician in the UK - beaten only by 'Someone Like You' singer Adele - with earnings of £12 million.

I really wish these celebrities and others, STOP always attempting to compare anyone to Michael Jackson. I don't give a damn if she's a perfectionist she IS NOT AND NEVER WILL BE CLOSE TO A MICHAEL JACKSON. If it's not her, it's Justin Beiber or Chris Brown or Usher and on and on. Give it a rest already and let these people do their own thing and be who they are and stop this BS of how they are like Michael. HE WAS THE ONE AND ONLY, THERE WILL NEVER BE ANOTHER!!!!!!

I do totally agree with Yanni54, on this one. There is no comparison to Michael Jackson. Although , I'm just one of those hardcore fans, who loves to be like Michael, I'm not a singer, just loves to dance. But since Michael has pass away Bieber, Chris Brown, or any Celebrity is trying to hard to be the King Of Pop. Hell Bieber couldn't get a 1st Grammy. If these stars quit trying to attempt to copy cat Michael Jackson, or steal his tunes such as Chris Brown did take the same sound of a song, but change the words of the same tune. And claiming to be a New Sound.There is no originally, or creativity IN TODAY'S MUSIC.I'm sorry but music of today really sucks! NOBODY! I MEAN NOBODY WILL EVER BE, ACT OR ACHIEVED THE ONE OF A LIFETIME SUCCESS AS MICHEAL JACKSON PLEASE QUIT TRYING TO BE A WANNA BE SUPER STAR. MICHAEL STARTED WHEN HE WAS 10 YEARS OLD, AND FORCE TO LOOSE HIS CHILDHOOD TO BECOME A WORLD WIDE SUPERSTAR FOR 3 AND HALF DECADES. WILLIAM AM IS A DREAMER THIS NEW SINGER MAY CLAIM TO A PERFECTIONIST IN THIS CRAPPY TYPE OF MUSIC, IN WHICH I WILL NOT BUY . THERE IS ONLY ONE MICHAEL JACKSON, THERE WILL NEVER BE ANOTHER SUPERSTAR AS HIM. AT ANYTIME IN THE FUTURE!

Spot on YANNI54 - I mean come on now, PERFECTIONIST!! in which way? CC can't sing, and was only recently copying Nichola C. as to the pony-tail/dress/dance routines. will.i.am has the 'hots' for Ms C. - but to compare her to MICHAEL JACKSON.....no comparsion whatsoever and an insult to suggest same. There will never be another KING OF POP (not in my life span anyway), and it is apparent will.i.am is a tad up his own a*%e and not that great least of all to come out with such ludicrous comparisons.

I wish everyone would just stop trying to compare this one and that to Michael Jackson. (There will never be anyone as talented, famous, and as amazing as the "King Of Pop". ) He was the greatest entertainer to ever walk the earth. I don't care who you are , what you do, or how you do it. It's not MJ.

Michael was a hasbeen who is forgotten about now. So hopefully she'll be like him in that respect soon as well. As for William, he's just trying to sell his new project and for a manager to compare his violent 'artiste' to a drugged up pedo is really not doing either of them any favours. And god knows she and Wacko had lives that do nothing but raise questions and suspicions.
