Beyoncé: Michael Jackson changed me

2012-06-27 21:00
Los Angeles - Beyoncé Knowles has written a tribute to Michael Jackson, three years after the day of his death on Monday.

The 30-year-old singer said in a post on her website that her first producer would make her listen to Who's Loving You on repeat for hours.

She explained: "What he wanted me to learn was his soul. You could hear his soul. And he was a little kid who hadn't experienced love but he was a vessel. For whatever reason her could evoke more emotional than an adult."

The mother of daughter Blue Ivy with rapper husband Jay-Z went on to say that his entertaining ability was not something that could be learned.

She gushed: "It was so raw and pure. It was these things that he did that was just swag. It's something that's God given."

Finally she thanked the late performer who died in his bedroom at his Los Angeles home due to an overdose on the prescription drug, Propofol.

"Michael taught me sometimes you just have to forget technique, forget what you have on. If you feel silly, you just have to go from the gut. Let it go.

"Michael Jackson changed me and helped me become the artist that I am. Thank you Michael."
