White claims Beyonce's husband may have made a move on her.
Did Jay-Z make a move on Betty White? After sharing the bill on last weekend's "SNL," White relived her experience with Jay Leno. When asked whether the rapper got fresh with her, the 88-year-old actress laughed, "He didn't get fresh, he just got desperate, I guess," revealing that he copped a feel, "He just walked by and patted me--not on the shoulder." Watch out Beyoncé, Jay already has plans to take his new girl on a date. "I got her number and everything. Taking her out later this week," he joked in an interview with ESPN. "Me and Em[inem] gonna double date. He got the other one, the other Golden Girl [Rue McClanahan]." (Rap-Up)

Musical Guest: Jay-Z "Jay-Z took the stage where he first performed a medley (that was apparently too long ) of his hit songs and eventually was joined by Bridget Kelly for "Empire State of Mind." Later on Mr. Hudson wearing some strange pants teamed up with the rapper on "Young Forever," which he dedicated to the "most incredible Betty White." Too bad Betty and Jay did not do a skit together.
