Ever since Beychella went down on Saturday night the entire internet has not stopped comparing Beyoncé to the late GREAT Michael Jackson. Twitter has been riddled with tweets since Queen Bey's epic performance claiming that Bey is the "Michael Jackson of our time" and that "Bey is the female version of Michael Jackson." Bey's fans are adamant that she is just as iconic - some even believe she's better - as the King of Pop, but Jackson's fans are pushing back against the claims.
It feels like a full out fan war has taken over the internet after Coachella's first weekend, but there are some who are arguing that there's no reason to compare the two artists. As BET points out, that "eras, musical styles and even gender as viable reasons for why the debate is…well, undebatable."
While some may beg to differ and see the comparison as blatant disrespect, many did agree that Bey is up there with the King of Pop when it comes to being an overall amazing and iconic performer. Nobody can take that away from either performer. Both Michael Jackson and Beyonce have contributed to culture, the music industry, and more throughout their historic careers.
Whether you have a strong opinion on this subject or you truly couldn't care less, the tweets are highly entertaining. Check out some of the best tweets from the Beyonce / Michael Jackson debate of 2018.

Before the babies, Beyonce was living in Michael Jackson’s block but now she’s in his living room with her feet all up on the rug. Shoes ain’t even off. She’s there, dog.— Kazeem Famuyide (@RealLifeKaz) April 15, 2018
Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson and Beyoncé are all tied as the greatest entertainers of all time. At this point, I think we should allow them all to hold the #1 spot without trying to rank one over the other. They all did what needed to be done. pic.twitter.com/sELjkk1IOn— I Luh God ✨ (@aVeryRichBish) April 16, 2018
I love Michael Jackson forever, but Beyonce is a better live preformer. Singing LIVE (no lip syncing), while still being on key & doing choreography in HEELS?! For HOURS?! no. Beyonce got that. give the woman her props! @cthagod@angelayee @djenvy#TheBreakfastClub— Samari Rose (@xoxsimply_mee) April 16, 2018
I was literally innocently scrolling through my timeline and seen people actually comparing Beyonce to Michael Jackson smh. I absolutely love and up right admire EVERYTHING about her and she's an UNDENIABLE PHENOMENON on ALL levels BUT MJ was the greatest entertainer EVER!— J-Hood (@ThaRealJHood) April 16, 2018
