When you want to flatter the woman you love, you’re going to come up with the most sincere, romantic compliment you can think of. So when Jay-Z calls Beyonce Michael Jackson reincarnated, you know that’s basically international superstar foreplay. “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 told South Beach’s Jamz 99 about his wife. They were also the only two people on the planet who could ever really pull of wearing epaulets. Ever.
Jay-Z must have music royalty on his mind, given that he just released his new album Watch The Throne with Kanye West last week. “You know, the hard work and dedication that she puts into her shows,” Jay-Z said, continuing his praise of Beyonce. “It just makes you want to work harder at your own craft. She’s like a machine.” Seriously though, they would have to be two machines to look that good in a military-inspired jacket. It just doesn’t seem human.
