This is srsly the best compliment any musician or person can get!
Some artists tend to compare themselves to the greatest entertainer to have ever lived, but this comparison was unsolicited from Taylor Swift's end!
The mega popstar was deemed as the closest thing to Michael Jackson by bestie Lena Dunham's boyfriend!
What a compliment, right?!
In an interview with GQ, Jack Antonoff of fun. had nothing but great things to say about Mz. Swift!
He said of his girlfriend's bestie:
"I think Taylor Swift is one of the best songwriters ever.
Taylor Swift is cool, because she's the closest thing today that hearkens to Michael Jackson—to great, great pop music. There's a difference between her and Gaga and Katy Perry and Lily Allen and all that. It all feels throwaway, comparatively."
How sweet is that?!
Jack has worked with Swifty before on Sweeter Than Fiction, so he's definitely experienced T-Swizzle's talent first hand!
We bet Tay Tay is over the MOON about this!
