After Beyoncé exploded out a baby girl he was all, “and forevermore, I shall nevermore useth the word ‘bitch’ for as long as we all shall care,” which I thought was a bit ironic given that he had made about a grillion dollars using ‘bitch’ in like, every song ever. It pisses me off when celebrities get all up in arms about a cause and do a 180 over something that made them soooooo much money and their entire careers, but don’t think to do anything like “actually, I am now starting a charity organization to help young men recognize that women are their equals and should be treated as such” and rah rah rah.
HOWEVER… Even though I suspect it may be more of a ploy to get the “pink vote” I think it’s brilliant that Hova has stepped up to say that opposition to same-sex marriage is discrimination. Quote via SPIN:
“I’ve always thought [of] it as something that’s still holding the country back,” Jay-Z told CNN when asked about the lack of legal recognition for same-sex couples. “What people do in their own homes is their business … It’s no different than discriminating against blacks. It’s discrimination, plain and simple.”
All the same, I doubt you’re gonna start hearing “Hard Cock Life” at the Obama rallies… or WILL YOU?
