Jay Z covered this month’s ‘Vanity Fair’ Magazine discussing drugs, Beyonce’s fake pregnancy rumors and more. HOV started the interview opening up about his past life, discussing the struggles he faced as a adolescent growing up with poverty and drugs, “There wasn’t any place you could go for isolation or a break. You go in the hallway; [there are] crackheads in the hallway. You look out in the puddles on the curbs—crack vials are littered in the side of the curbs. You could smell it in the hallways, that putrid smell; I can’t explain it, but it’s still in my mind when I think about it.” Today, Jay Z is one of the most successful people around! Jay Z along with his wife Beyonce earned a reported $78 million!
The Roc Nation leader then shot down Beyonce’s surrogate rumors, “ I don’t even know how to answer that. It’s just so stupid. You know, I felt dismissive about it, but you’ve got to feel for her. I mean, we’ve got a really charmed life, so how can we complain? But when you think about it, we’re still human beings… And even in hip-hop, all the blogs — they had a field day with it. I’m like, ‘We come from you guys, we represent you guys. Why are you perpetuating this? Why are you adding fuel to this ridiculous rumor?” Honestly, I don’t believe that Beyonce gave birth to Blue Ivy but that’s their business! On the bright side, Blue Ivy is a beautiful little girl who’s growing extremely quickly!
Jay Z discussed Blue Ivy’s love for music, “She does like her mother’s music—she watches [Beyoncé’s concerts] on the computer every night. But my album came out and I don’t know if Blue ever heard any of my music prior to this album—she’s only 18 months old and I don’t play my music around the house. But this album was new, so we played it. And she loves all the songs. She plays a song and she goes, ‘More, Daddy, more . . . Daddy song.’ She’s my biggest fan. If no one bought the Magna Carta [album], the fact that she loves it so much, it gives me the greatest joy. And that’s not like a cliché. I’m really serious. Just to see her—‘Daddy song, more, Daddy.’ She’s genuine; she’s honest, because she doesn’t know it makes me happy. She just wants to hear it.” That’s awesome! It’s really nice to get a true glimpse into the superstar’s life! Jay Z definitely exemplifies hard work and success! Check out Jay Z in the “Holy Grail” video below!
