Jack Antonoff has heaped praise on Taylor Swift saying she is one of the best songwriters ever and that she is the closest thing to Michael Jackson today.

The fun. guitarist, and boyfriend of Girls' Lena Dunham, told GQ magazine, "I think Taylor Swift is one of the best songwriters ever."

While he's a fan of the Red hitmaker, he didn't share the love for Gaga, Katy Perry and Lily Allen, "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 Lady Gaga and Katy Perry and Lily Allen and all that. It all feels throwaway, comparatively."
