HOUSTON, Texas — History repeats itself because nobody cared to listen the first time...
Michael Jackson was a child prodigy — whose father insisted he sacrifice playtime for music practice.

Michael initially sang lead in his childhood group. He left the group. Today, he's known as the "King of Pop."

Michael holds the record for winning the most Grammy Awards in one night (8).
Beyoncé holds the record for winning the most Grammy Awards in history (32).
In short, when History told us a Virgo named Michael Jackson was the King of Pop, perhaps, because nobody cared to listen the first time, she repeated herself. And apparently, History says this:
A Virgo named Beyoncé Knowles is the new Michael Jackson.
Queen B loves her hometown
"I'm out that H-town, coming, coming down..." Beyoncé boasts on the track, "Bow Down."
Affectionately nicknamed "Miss Third Ward" by the locals, Beyoncé's rise to pop-star royalty makes all of Houston proud.
"Who would've ever thought the beautician Tina's [Knowles] daughter would sing and dance like Michael [Jackson]?" my late grandmother, their fellow Virgo, once asked.
Just yesterday, Billboard announced Beyoncé's Renaissance World Tour made history.
After grossing a whopping $127,600,000 for a run of 11 shows in the month of July, Queen B's tour earnings mark the largest one-month sum for an artist in history.
Of course, when you've become the new Michael Jackson — we wouldn't expect anything less.
