Beyonce, Tell Your Boy He Is Delusional!

| Filed under: UsherMichael JacksonJAY-Z


In our eyes, there is no one who could ever fill the shoes of Michael Jackson as the King of Pop.

Jay-Z, however, sees things a bit differently. He's already made his nomination for Michael's successor: Usher.


Jay-Z claims that Usher has the potential to be the next global, mega superstar, based off the tribute he did to MJ during the Grammys. He said:

"I thought the Michael Jackson tribute was fantastic and I thought Usher was doing a magnificent job. I think he's one of the guys that’s in line to, you know, fill those huge shoes. I don't wanna put that pressure on him, but I think he's one of the guys that's in line to do that."

We couldn't agree LESS! There shouldn't be a line to begin with!

Hate to burst that bubble, Usher, but we just don't think you could ever have what Michael had. No one ever could.

Don't U agree?

    Jay-Z should keep his big ass mouth shut and concern himself more with keeping his cash cow wife from finding out that he's been fucking RiRi all along.

  2. 2

    No one in the business today could top Michael Jackson. He was a once in a lifetime miracle and we should count our lucky stars that we were the fortunate ones who had the privilege of being there when he was in this world.

  3. 3

    damn can a fucking dude have an opinion god you people say on people nuts who gives a shit if he thinks that what it too you

  4. 4

    i'm sorry but usher cannot sing the way michael can. Michaels voice was so distinct, original and strong! During the tribute at the grammys all them bitches were drowned out by Michaels voice

  5. 5

    Wow Perez. While I agree with you, I think you're a huge hypocrite. Correct me if I'm wrong but before the King passed to called him "Wacko Jacko", you talked about him negatively, and much, much more. But furthermore, you're correct. NOBODY can ever be Michael Jackson. NOBODY can be The Beatles, nobody can be Elvis. These people are the ones you only see once in a long time. Just like they will always only be one "We are the World". The stars of today can try all they like.

  6. 6

    Usher is only good at copying MJ .. nothing original….plus who can remember ONE Usher song…NOBODY

  7. 7

    Oh, and Usher has a really annoying voice. And he doesn't write his own music. Jay Z is so delusional. Did anyone notice the way he turned his back on Beyonce at the Grammys? To greet Rihanna? Yeah, I think that's why Beyonce was like "I love you boo."

  8. 8

    That was a stupid thing to say Usher wouldn't even say that about himself he loved Michael too much to ever think about taking his crown. Or that fact that all his dance moves are MJ inspired. Plus Usher is already behind in the game at this point Michael already had the best selling album of all-time plus multiple grammys. People need to stop trying to recrown the King of Pop that title will forever belong to Michael Jackson. Enough discussion over this nonsense!

  9. 9

    No one can replicate Michael Jackson. Just like Elvis or Frank Sinatra, they have their special places in history. Usher, not so much.

  10. 10

    i've always thought Usher was going to be the next Michael Jackson…

  11. 11

    the stupidest thing I've ever heard..no one will never, ever replace Michael or be as good as he was.

  12. 12

    this guys are dumb or what. king of pop,queen of pop, king of rock are uniques. immortal. usher can never do what MJ did. he will jsut «be MJ wannabe and a king cant be a wannabe,just like what happen with madonna. madonna is the queen ,unique. all the new artists will be compared to her cause shes #1

  13. 13

    Perez is a fat fucking hyprocrite. There will NEVER be another King of Pop and they'll never be another Queen as both MJ and Madonna will never be replaced. I find it ironic that Perez posts shit like this yet is shoving GaGa down our throats and sometimes calling her the new princess or queen of pop. Hate to break it to you fat ass but she's been around for 2 years, not 30. If she lasts a decade she still wont be replacing anyone. And regarding Jay's statement: Usher has been out for a long ass time already. He's not even that popular and aside from a few hit singles nothing to write home about and far from Justin Timberlakes league let alone Michael Jackson.

  14. 14

    so funny how you people are all for Michael now but when he was alive you called him names like freak you all fake

  15. hebe says – reply to this


    NO WAY! that's hilarious

  16. 16

    I actually agree with Jay Z in a way. I think someone will replace Michael. I think Usher could have it but I think Justin Timberlake does have it! My money is on Justin Timberlake!!!!

  17. 17

    There will only be one King of Pop and that is Michael Jackson just like there will only be a Queen of Pop: Madonna.

  18. 18

    Michael was a genius when he was young but then he became a crazy white woman. Usher hasn't had a hit in years and I think most people are over him. Booo to Usher and Booo to Wacko Jacko

  19. Theo says – reply to this


    Okay, first, I am so sick of Jay-Z and Beyonce…they are starting to get like "Ben and Jen" a few years back….OVEREXPOSED! There will never be another MJ…he was a unique talent…period.

  20. 20

    No one will ever be MJ, period. I took JayZ's quote to be that Usher is one of the most talented entertainers here ON THE PLANET and he could very well fill the "void" we now have in the entertainment world. Regardless of how you put it, Usher has charisma, sex appeal (which MJ did NOT btw) a gentleness and also RESPECT from the people. He's an awesome showman, singer and diverse dancer. To compare him to MJ was sort of a slight, I feel. He's USHER.

  21. 21

    Why are there still tributes? I don't get it…

  22. 22

    Just like MJJ said, I don't think Usher would say this about himself. It's just a dumb thing to say. There is not a person in the world (or has been in the world) that can be replaced! We are all special.

  23. 23

    One of the biggest reasons people loved Michael Jackson was his compassion, empathy, and love of others. Michael was a gentle soul who brought the joy of music to the world. Usher, on the other hand, is a total self-obsessed douchebag. Yes, he has vocal talent and can dance. That does not make him the next anything, and especially not the next MJ. Jay-Z, who is normally pretty sensible, has clearly lost his mind if he really thinks this…

  24. 24

    I wanna be the next Madonna.Because I like the crust on my apple pie! We are alot alike.

  25. 25

    Usher sucks.

    And Jay Z is a boring old man. He's a has been.

    This is old people muzak.

  26. 26

    Michael being a one-of-a-kind genius in music and dance and also being a perv are two different things.

  27. 27

    WTF? If anybody thinks there will ever be an artist even CLOSE to Michael Jackson, they are seriously wrong. He was unique in every possible way. I think Usher is a very talented artist, but he is just one of many other artists who are influenced by Michael.

  28. 28

    Re: truth in life – burn, confessions, u got it bad, love in this club. theres 4, douchebag.

  29. 29

    It's SO stupid… There is no next whatever.. Michael will always be the king and Madonna the queen and Britney the princess.. You can't ever give that title away. They were the first and best in what they did/do.

  30. 30

    That's almost as ridiculous as Perez saying Sliimy is going to sell more than 20 albums.

  31. 31

    Let him compare himself to Michael Jackson and let him understand the tall order that he has to achieve to get to this :-)

  32. 32

    no one can replace michael. but usher is good. i think they are somewhat similar, but he can't ever replace him. everyone needs to calm down it is an opinion & last time i checked we do have the freedom to that still.

  33. 33

    Re: luvstotango – do your homework, perv!

  34. 34

    There NEVER will be 'another' Michael Jackson.

  35. 35

    Haha Usher? I mean, Confessions was good but his recent stuff sucks! No where near MJ.

  36. 36

    Sorry, good or bad, no one right now could ever have the power of music and presence that Michael had, and still has.. No one so far in this lifetime. I think a being like Mike comes along once every few generations. Elvis, Beatles, marilyn Monroe all had what Mike had.. Worldwide appeal.. I do not see it with Usher.. He is liked, but just do not see it in the least. Beyonce is bigger than Usher and she does not come close. Mike appealed to all walks of life, race, religion, everything. if there is life in other planets, they would know who Mike was and love him..Sorry, being real here.

  37. 37

    Jay Z can definitely make comparisons - how about comparing the "beauty" of his face to michael jackson's?

  38. 38

    Usher did the worst job of all of them during the MJ tribute. He tried to sing and move like MJ (as always)… fail!

  39. 39

    You don't even like michael jackson so why the fuck do you care?

  40. 40

    Come on Jay-Z! If you're going to pick the next "King of Pop" the least you can do is pick someone new and fresh, not someone whose first single came out way back in 1997! If he were the new King of Pop, don't you think the comparisons would've been made already? And wasn't it just a few years ago that Justin Timberlake was the "Prince of Pop"?? Ooh, and how about we make the next "King of Pop" sing pop music! What a thought! Kthx. lol.

  41. 41

    hahahahaha! is Usher going to time travel so he can be on stage at age 6???? Practicing dance moves for 7-8 hours a day in his bedroom at age 8? Hahahahaha!!!! Michael was a prodigy. Anyway, why do we need another Michael; Usher can just be an Usher, he has talent; do we need Celine Dion to be "another Michael?" nah. Nor Colby O'Donis or Jay Sean or Sean Paul or Maxwell or blah blah…..

    what about Ne-Yo? I like Ne-Yo.

  42. 42

    Funny I was thinking along the same lines watching the tribute on the Grammys. Those other bags should've stepped aside and given it all to Usher.

  43. 43

    Michael Jackson died?

  44. 44

    people are stupid…

    the day dangerous came out, it had a month count down. it was fucking crazy i remember being 8 years old and trying to get a hold of his cd. every mall, music store was PACKED. lines out the door. you could only buy one cd. no one now will be able to do that. if usher was to be the next mj, he would have done it when he came out..

    hes just an r&B star. there will never be another mj. and fuck jay z he thinks hes the best rapper alive…

    enough said

  45. 45

    That's like trying to replace the size of PEREZS HEAD.It could never be done.Tho LURCH would be close!!!

  46. 46

    For Usher or anyone else to become the "next Michael Jackson" you pretty much need to become a global superstar at the age of nine (I think that's the age of Michael when the Jackson 5 hit it big) then you need to move onto a record breaking solo career and at the age of 24, hold the record for the biggest selling album of all time. Then move forward to become the world's biggest pop star in history…Um. Yeah. So pretty much gonna need a fucking time machine for anyone to become the next Michael Jackson. The man was a legend and does not need to be replaced by some dip shit performer. Michael was unreachable in his level of greatness and always will be.

  47. 47

    they are out their minds, ushers already 30, if he was gonna be the next mj the hype would have already started. i mean did you see michael when he was 11, michael was even better then him then. anywayz loving the all of sudden love perez.

  48. 48

    Re: Sylvesterr – Jimi Hendrix is a step above all of them as GOD!!!!

  49. 49

    uh..no..to begin with…todays music is shit compared to the music back then….and usher is talentless next to michael jackson…MJ's truly unique and no one,not in a million years will ever even come close to being as big as he was

  50. 50

    Re: truth in life – actually, many people can :)

  51. 51

    I think Usher is amazing

  52. 52

    Re: PrinceD – Are u the guy in the photo?? u are fucking sexy!!!!!!!!!

  53. 53

    yea i can fully understand the point that although usher is undeniably talented there will never be another MJ. there just wont be. period. but who the fuck are you PEREZ to be making these comments! michael jackson would laugh in your ugly fat face. YOU the one who always refered to him as a FREAK and crazy! since when did you ever once care about his talent or mention it while he was alive?!? YOU FUCKING ACUSED HIM OF FAKING HIS DEATH THE DAY HE DIED! AND YOU WERE SO QUICKLY TO TAKE THAT OFF WHEN IT WAS CONFIRMED!!! i hope will.i.am punches you in the face again so you can cry about how terrible bullying is. you fuckin hypocrite! you are the biggest bully of all!! YOUR FUCKING CAREER IS BASED ON BULLYING! FUCK YOU!

  54. 54

    Usher is good but King of pop? that makes no sense since he's r&b

  55. 55

    I doubt you can burst anyone's buble 'perez hilton' blogger…. JayZ has a nose for talent.. and you have a nose full of some dude's asshole hairs.. I think I would believe his word before yours… lmFFFFao

  56. 56

    Re: RRaaZZ – Eminem is the arsits of the decade.. MJ is (literally) a has been… Like elvis.. and Munroe.. There will be another… but never the same… but like Eminem, the next one will be better and will be a has been one day also… Sorry you MJ freaks… get a grip on reality… geesh.

  57. 57

    you're such a hypocrite perez. i do agree with you but shit, if mj was still alive you wouldn't be praising him like that and everyone knows it. you'd probably say usher would never become as wacko as jacko.

  58. 58

    I still cannot believe MJ is gone. No one will EVER be MJ and even come close. Plus, though we haven't really heard anything about him recently, JT is waaaaaay more talented than Usher.

  59. 59

    PEREZ! im soo happy for you!
    this is the smartest post you have ever made !
    Michael is the king of pop NOONE! can replace him

  60. 60

    And also I agree with alot of people on here who are calling you a big hypocrite Perez. All the trash you said about Michael before he passed. Saying his concerts were "doubtful." Questioning whether or not he still "had it" eventhough you probably hadn't paid attention to anything related to him unless it was another media driven fabrication. You still need to apologize for what you said. Though you erased it from your sight it doesn't mean that it isn't on the internet for people to see for years. Your rudeness and cruelity is what you will be remembered for whenever your expiration date comes around.

  61. 61

    Re: on_the_perez_hate_bandwagon – Yeah, that's why Eminem had to make fun of Michael in a video just so he could become more popular.. Michael Joseph Jackson a has been = NEVER! Sounds like your the one who needs to get a serious grip on reality."Snap back to reality" Eminem created that line was just for you.

  62. 62

    lol FAIL. but you really cant talk about anyone being delusional mario ;)

  63. 63

    Jay-Z needs to STFU he looks like a camel. NO ONE will ever be the next MJ especially not Ushers hideous ass.

  64. 64

    Jay - z is one ugly mother fucker

  65. 65

    o my, much hate in these comments, as i expected! there's nobody around that can touch michael, cept for GAGA who has the talent and genious to to bakc it up!!! usher is nothing like mj. just cuz dude stole a couple dance moves and looked good doing it, gives him no way a road to becoming the nxt mj. damn, disappointed in J. damn him. i bet ya beyonce smake him in the face after he said that!! haha great visual

  66. 66

    nah, cant be usher, his kids are his own and he's too black….so he will need to start bleaching his skin along with getting vitiligo……..hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm……….i say we keep the spot empty til a REAL talent comes along again…..good luck with that lol

  67. 67

    user will never be

  68. @v@ says – reply to this


    Performing Magic like Michael's is extremely rare, and isn't something that can be passed down. It and he were unique; and try as Usher may, or anyone else, there are no two snowflakes that are alike.

  69. 69

    Usher back in his day when yeah or whatever it was called was hot then. Not now.

    A true star like mj maintained an a-list all the way through his career. He didnt even release any songs that made it big in the last 10 YEARS! but he was still massive. That really says something.

    Usher isnt a star in my eyes. He doesnt have that misteeq that mj had.

  70. 70

    Jay-Z needs to shut the hell up! He's an idiot and he's ugly! No one can ever replace Michael Jackson or even come close!!! Ever!!!

  71. KHop says – reply to this


    There will never EVER be another Michael Jackson. MJ was a gift, a stroke of pure genius that we will never again see in this lifetime. Not only was he an amazing singer and dancer, but he was a visual genius, and a giving philanthropist. There are few musicians the world will remember one hundred years from now, those that will be remebered: The Beatles, John Lennon, Elvis Presley, and Michael Jackson. These musicians brought something different to the table; they had that certain something. Michael took what these musicians did and redefined it. While nobody will ever be MIchael, Gaga is on the path to greatness. She has redefined the game, and she speaks to more than just her music; LGBT rights etc…but USHER!? Please.

  72. 72

    When Usher actually had a career people always said that about it him….

  73. 73

    MJ and Usher and in two completely different leagues. No one will ever top Michael Jackson. Ever…. its dumb of Jay-Z to even think such a thought.

  74. 74

    yeah now all you fake ass losers love MJ but before he died I was made fun of for listening to him! Now everyones like oh I loved MJ fukcin liers!!!!
    Now he knows who his real fans are!!! i hate you pieces of shit

  75. 75

    Re: PrinceD – agreed :)

  76. 76

    Finally,something I actually agree with you on,Mario!
    NOBODY can or will replace Michael Jackson! He is the KING!

  77. 77

    Michael Jackson was totally overrated.

  78. 78

    you wouldnt say that if jay-z said gaga could be the next queen of pop

  79. 79

    Re: PrinceD – Guess again,fool! Everybody who loves Michael NOW,have always loved him!
    p.s. Learn how to write. You suck at it!

  80. 80

    Jay-Z is obviously delusional.. I don't really agree that there will nvr be any1 close to MJ's greatness,cz there is a possibility there will be in the future,none that Iv seen anytime recently.. But Usher?? USHERR??? Ur comparing the Kind Of Pop to some random dude who makes bland RnB songs n has a flimsy career..?? Oh god..

    At the tribute Usher was painful to watch.. His vocals were off,he was being overly dramatic(like it's about him),n he seemed like he was trying to hard to emulate MJ.. Celine was also boring,but Carrie n Jennifer were great..

    But still no where near MJ's great talent,charisma,success, n evrything else that MJ was..
    Plz don't just compare any random ppl who can hold a tune to MJ,until some1 really worthy comes along.. Don't see that happening anytime soon tho..

  81. 81

    Never, ever, ever!!! AMEN Perez!

  82. 82

    No way can there ever be another Michael. Not even close! Just like there will never be another Beatles.
    And Usher is certainly not worthy of trying to fill that spot. He's so full of himself its sickening! Michael never was.

  83. 83

    i love usher i think he could do it!

  84. 84

    miss moneypenny GO FUCK UR SELF AHAHAAH..
    fuck Usher hes an unsuccessful loser. cant stand him

  85. 85

    Michael Jackson was one of the kind. Usher is a dime a dozen.

  86. 86

    Besides, there will only be one King Of Pop, that MJ forever. He is immortalized as the KING of Pop forever. Just like Elvis will always be the King of Rock n Roll, Mary J will always be the Queen of Hip-Hop/Soul, Britney will always be the Princess of Pop, Madonna will always be the Queen of Pop. Those are permanent titles you can't just give to someone. Besides, if anyone comes close to MJ it's Justin Timberlake who actually IS pop, not R&B.

  87. 87

    is there a bigger jackass alive than you hilton???
    1. you are not allowed to comment on anything to do with michael jackson. it has not escape anyone's attention that you talked so much shit on him when he was alive, especially your super hateful posts THE DAY HE DIED that magically disappeared when his death is confirmed. Please don't now try to act like a superfan. It is unbelievably insulting to those of us that actually did love michael.
    2. Jay-z is truly a genius and you have no authority to judge his opinions. You write a blog. Seriously?
    3. Please STOP stirring the shit all the time! GEEZ! why do you constantly have to twists things trying to make them negative and star stupid, nonexistant fueds between them? it is pretty much disgusting.

  88. 88

    Re: luvstotango – You don't know for sure he was a perv. You don't know what he was. One thing for sure poor MJ was an ABUSED CHILD! Of course YOU only are sympathetic to fetuses…

  89. 89

    ok, 1 back in the dAY there was no downloading, or boot legs of music, so no one will ever sell like Michael Jackson, 2] Fuck Jay Z he is an idiot from the gecko, don't know how Beyonce fell for him, but he has mula!!! for now, 3] MICHAEL JACKSON WILL ALWAYS BE #1 King of Pop!!!! sorry Usher but ur music sucks now after confessions you fell off, and trust me, YOU WILL NEVER BE KING OF POP!!!! but you can replace Jay-Z the moron of all time, anytime you like….

  90. 90

    Oh Mario for the first time in my life i totally agree with you!! there is no one who could ever be the next Michael Jackson! Long Live The King of Pop MJ!!!!!!!

  91. 91

    ok i was not a mj fan idk whats the big deal he was just a regular singer in my opinion nd he had some good song but so does most of these singers . . . I feel like b4 he died everyone was always calling him a pedophile and wacko jacko blah blah nd now he is the greatest singer of all timme becuz he is dead??? i think not

  92. @v@ says – reply to this


    Re: goodtasteishardtofind – Aretha was and is the Queen of Soul. MaryJ? Not so much, as much as I like her.

  93. 93

    only 1 king of pop michael.usher doesnt have that kind of talent i would agree with prince of rnb but michael was known around the world usher is just known in the states and the uk try agin jay z.

  94. 94

    Jay- Z should shut his bigg ass mouth with those bigg ass lips and the hoochie of a wife he has. MJ wont be replace and certainly not by Usher with his baby daddie stauts that tricked played his ass. So yeah thats how I feel

  95. 95

    uhhh wtf?
    don't get me wrong, i think usher is talented but LOL not to that extent. nobody really is
    michael clearly had wayy more success. he was known all over the world and his albums were all number one. he took music and dance to a whole new level.
    way to embarass usher by saying such a ridiculous thing jay z.

  96. 96

    omg.. hahaha..

    MJ was an universal phenomen. He was more famous than politicans.

    Usher, who?

  97. 97

    what? are u fucking serious?
    hate usher since he married that granny's ass

  98. 98

    As far as the magnitude of MJ's work is concerned there is really no line of comparison with any r&b musician that could muster up the same stem of such a high steamed music catelogue. I think Usher does have a lot of potential that we have failed to see in the past maybe five years. I feel like Usher has a body of work that can be reviewed to eh reviews, I can't recall anything really epic worthy. He has been on Hiatus. We need to pull Justin & Usher out of their caves and welcome them back to the music world with their own material and navigate our thoughts to whom can leave a legacy close but not quite on par to that of MJ.

  99. 99

    There will never be another MJ for decades. In every aspect he was one of a kind.
    Usher, on the other hand - he has similarities with many other artists, and has regularly admitted to being influened by Michael.

  100. Hibo says – reply to this


    Re: BunnySix13 – You're exactly right. There's no one alive today or in the future that will ever have the star power of Michael Jackson, who reached across to billions of people, but when Jay-Z is comparing Usher to MJ, he's saying it as Usher is one of the best in the game at the moment, kinda like MJ was at his peak. And I'm sure Jay never said Usher would be the NEXT Michael Jackson, I really think he just said Usher was such a force in his profession, that he could possibly emulate a little bit of what Michael Jackson had.
