Beyonce London, Aug 16 (IANS) Hip-hop mogul Jay-Z has described his singer wife Beyonce Knowles as “the second coming” of Michael Jackson and in the same breath he admits it is “blasphemy” to compare her to the late pop legend.

“What I’ve learnt from her is similar to what I learnt from (Michael 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,” femalefirst.co.uk quoted the 41-year-old as saying.

Jay also feels Beyonce, whom he married in 2008, is like a “machine” in terms of making music.

“The hard work and dedication that she puts into her shows, it just makes you want to work harder at your own craft. She’s like a machine,” he said.
