Jay-Z is sparked controversy on twitter as he has suggested that his wife Beyoncé is the ‘evolution’ of Michael Jackson.
He posted: “Bey’s gonna be mad at [me] for saying this, but Michael Jackson never had a Coachella,” he said. “She’s an evolution of him because she watched him at 9 [years old]. And [the kids] are the same.”
During a Twitter debate on Tuesday, the 52-year-old rapper branded Beyonce as one of the greatest artists of all time, placing her above Michael Jackson.
“Find me a concert that’s as culturally relevant and thrilling as Coachella,” Jay-Z continued. “Beyoncé is gonna be one of the best singers we ever heard because she is such a student.” He added.
One person tweeted: “Jay Z is comparing Beyonce to Michael Jackson when it comes to Coachella, but Michael left before various ave of digital streaming were created. He was pulling Coachella’s reaction at any given concert without social media and entertainment platforms.”
Another person tweeted: “The whole debate starting with what Jay z said, He said bey elevated the performance standard she learned from MJ, and fans got mad. The context was performance only not stats, sales etc. Mike was the best in popularity and creativity but bey is better as a performer”
Another fan said: “Michael Jackson literally sold out 50 shows in an hour. He did this without having performed in almost decade, plus removed from the darkest time of his life. And he still sold out 50 shows in an a hour. Michael Jackson didn’t need coachella dawg. He was bigger than that lol.”
