Questlove, the drummer for the hip-hop group, The Roots, thinks that Beyonce is going to become the next Michael Jackson…in a good way.
Questlove from [lastfm]The Roots [/lastfm]told Vibe, quote, “No one is ever disputing MJ being the standard. But [lastfm]Beyonce[/lastfm] is well on her way at a quicker pace than the unspoken. This is year 10 for her at this level. It took MJ 13 years before he became God status.”
“Beyonce appeals to all races, all lifestyle creeds from the kiddest of kid to the churchest of the church. Straights, Huxtable men, housewives, and [expletive]. She can actually sing, and dances with the best of them.”
“She’s a regular on most fashion mags, sells out stadiums, wins countless Grammys, makes anthems, got bank, and is her own industry.”
So do you agree? Is Beyonce the new [lastfm]Michael Jackson[/lastfm]? (Photo by Jason Kempin/Getty Images)
