Jay-Z’s New Love Affair

Jay-Z can add art to his list of things he loves in addition to Beyonce’s jelly:

Jay-Z and Beyonce are Crazy In Love – with modern art.

The hip-hop mogul and his missus have splashed out on a string of priceless pieces and he now considers himself quite the critic.

So much so that Jay is even considering opening his own high-end gallery close to his Manhattan home.

He said: “Bey is really into art and now I am too. I’m building a collection but at the moment I am just buying things I like and seeing where it takes me.

“I have a lot of pieces from Damien Hirst and Richard Price – they are incredible artists.

“Damien Hirst’s Beat Life, Cheat Death piece was actually inspired by one of my songs, so that was cool.

“When I finally hang up the microphone I could even exhibit my own collection.”

Will it be ‘pop’ art? Sorry.

Damn, Jigga Man, you sure are growing up to be a very fine sir.  Art galleries and carrying on?  Nice.

    Smart investment, art doesn’t depreciate in value. Pretty good for a guy without a college degree huh (sarcasm).

  • OooLaLa

    art doesn’t depreciate in value? hell yes it can and does. Artist like Hirst exploits the art world and stupid money by making ridiculous pieces that will infact will mean nothing in the upcoming economic depression.

    Right this moment the auction houses are luring stupid “new money” into buying art when the real money (Billionaires and Old Money) ain’t touching the shit because they know what’s going down.

    Good for him. I don’t know if he or B really appreciate art or just like to get expensive things, but I like to see the growth in him. To think 10 years ago he was a knife toting rough neck. Not bad Jay. Not bad.

    Unless it changes you for the better. Ain’t no use of staying in a jacked up state of mind for the sole purpose of keeping it real. Growth is a good thing.


    @hatebossip: angry much?

  • BE

    Art is a better investment than a new car or clothes. Even if it depreciates you can always admire and enjoy the artwork and pass it down to your children.

    Shawn Carter is growing up it happens to all of us, especially to men after they get married.

    Co-sign Be,
    Unless the artwork is a knock-off, an original piece will never depreciate as much as a car. I think this is a sound decision on his part.

  • Raquel26

    I agree with BE. Definitely bettet than seeing an ice-out RocaFella chain.

    Well, Bey did say she would upgrade him. LOL

    “Hermes briefcase, silk-lined blazers”,…NOW, ART!

  • um...

  • Black Bill Cosby

    maybe his fans in the hood will aspire to do the same thing!
