Rap mogul Jay-Z opens up about maintaining his position as the “coolest man on Earth” in a new interview with Hollywood actress Gwyneth Paltrow.
Taking part in an interview for Paltrow’s GOOP Newsletter online publication, Young Hov reveals the secret to his coolness.
Q: You are the coolest man on Earth, how the f did you get like that? A: I’m around great women, starting with my mom. Women keep men cool. The hotter the chick the cooler the guy … that sounds like a really bad rap line! (GOOP)
Earlier this year, Jay’s close friend dream hampton inked a “Power Couple” feature for Ebony Magazine detailing the rapper’s personal relationship with wife/pop star Beyonce.
“For all their might as solo power players, their relationship is remarkably free of drama. They sit around in their pajamas and watch cable and snuggle, which may, after all, be the ultimate fantasy. When they climb off the couch from beneath their favorite cashmere throws or disembark from their yachts, they work as if James Brown were their boss. One of them is always touring, always in the studio, always somewhere making kinds of multimillion dollar-deals that keep them on the Forbes list.” (Ebony Magazine)
Within the piece, dream also explained how the couple operates when called out to travel on the road.
“Shortly after they’d become serious, when Jay was on summer tour, I was touched by the fact that they were committed to scheduling real time together, even if that meant Beyonce coming on the road, occasionally gracing the stage to perform one of their collabos. I wondered to myself if Jay would return the favor. Powerful women have no problem supporting their partners’ dreams so demonstratively. But that September, when it was her turn to head out on her first major international tour as a solo artist, Jay was backstage in her dressing room, playing cards with a robed Beyonce, ready to return the backing and join her onstage if need arose. The very nature of such circumstances proves that they are, indeed, the true definition of a power couple.” (Ebony Magazine)
Earlier this month, Jay and Beyonce celebrated their three-year anniversary.
Hip-hop’s royal couple, Beyoncé and Jay-Z, planned a quick getaway to the Bahamas to celebrate their third wedding anniversary. Mrs. Carter, in her island attire, shielded herself from the cameras with a big-brimmed hat, while her husband rocked a white tee during their visit to the Abaco Islands. The couple’s vacay won’t last long as Bey heads back to the U.S. to continue prepping her fourth album, reportedly scheduled for late June. (Rap-Up)
