Taylor Swift Compared To Michael Jackson! So What Do These Two Stars Have In Common?

taylor swift shocked face compliment michael jackson comparison

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!

    im sorry taylor is just like any artist out there, Michael Jackson is the one and only and is so different from taylor. Michael was original taylor really isn't . yes this is his opinion but look at the facts , taylor isn't Michael and never will be . taylor is cool though don't get me wrong

    he must have been joking. most of the world would be hard pressed to name a taylor swift song. Michael was known by EVERY age group in the world.

    I agree you can not compare them. I listened to MJ from when he was a tiny kid in the Jackson 5 until he died. He was weird and did 5 or 6 songs I liked during that time. Miss Swift does more songs I really like on every album.

    His music had soul and made people want to get up and dance. Her stuff, not so much and not in the same way, but she does have her own niche.

    Nashville whore isn't considered country and pure pop. She sings like a dog in heat and Michael Jackson can sing circles around this nasty slut.

    Um…NO! There is just absolutely no comparison. Yes she's got talent, but all her songs sound the same. She doesn't dance the way he does or have the same all-ages appeal.

    I think MJ was a phenomenon and even still talk about him, even after death. She put TS is one of the unique artists in the music that makes real music industry nowadays, love songs are written by her, no music prepared by others to have your name and your voice to be successful, I think the comparison it was concerned the TS be a complete artist and being a relatively long career without falling expectations always increased the number of sales of albums without out of line as others do. TS can not be compared with these other singers she really is not disposable.
