When it comes to their relationship, Jay-Z and Beyoncé have been pretty hush hush over the years. But recently the two megastars have both discussed their admiration for the other's talent. In a radio interview with Philadelphia's Power 99FM (via Sohh.com), Jay-Z went so far as to compare his beloved wife to the king of pop, Michael Jackson.

 

"I know that's blasphemy to compare the two because Mike was such an innovator," said Jay, "but I think she's like the second coming." Jay went on to explain his statement, speaking specifically of Beyoncé's work ethic. "You know, 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."

 

Last month on The View, Beyoncé referred to herself as a "Jay-Z groupie," saying she was inspired after watching her husband's shows from the audience.
