Jay-Z Blender

Jay-Z recently did a photo shoot and interview with Blender Magazine and shares some information on the entertainment value of rap music:

B: At the end of a song on American Gangster you yell out, “It’s just entertainment!” What do you mean by that?

J: It’s my way of saying, “People, stop taking it so seriously — not everything rappers say is true to life.” It’s entertainment, too. If you can watch a movie and see Denzel as a character, you should be able to do the same when you’re listening to rappers. I know we’re always saying, “Keep it real.” But for the most part [he laughs] — it’s not true!

    Personally I can’t get passed the lips, but he does seem like a charmer. He has swag too. As long as he and B are happy, more power to them.

    we (the females) dont have to be on beyonce’s level of looks personally ive seen females walkin down the street who look better then beyonce..i personally dont think shes all that cute. take away that lacefront & that lightin cream…….nothin special

    Why do so many black people hate big lips?

  • http://www.myspace.com/mahoganyrouge Sun Goddess

    iof you do not hate your black features, then the message doesn’t apply to you, so do not get offended….but if you don’t like black hips, black lips, black noses-why is that? Are you so programmed to European beauty standards you do not love the richness of African beauty? (Nothing is wrong with European beauty; I’m just saying to self hating black folks-if that’s not you, don’t get offended, once again.)
