Today in Way Too Much News About Jay-Z
Jay-Z has a priority list, which lists his priorities, according to the NYDN. One of those priorities is putting a baby inside Beyonce:
- Her song "Single Ladies" is an Internet hit among dancing babies and now, Beyonce's working on a tot of her own.
That's according to--get this--Jay-Z, B's notoriously tight-lipped hubby, who spilled the baby beans himself.
While chatting up Gotham mag editor in chief Cristina Greeven Cuomo, the rapper let it slip that procreating is high on the duo's priority list right now.
That's big news from hip hop's sneakiest couple, who wed secretly on a Tribeca rooftop and rarely even wear their own wedding rings in public.
Blame Live Nation, says Ben Sisario, whose convincing theory--hold on, I just want to see something in print one more time: procreating is high on the duo's priority list right now--right, whose convincing theory on the nightmare that Shawn Carter has become lately is that it all has to do with economies of scale:
- In 2009, Jay-Z is bigger than ever, but he is also in need of ever larger audiences. Last year he signed a historic 10-year deal with Live Nation, the concert giant. Worth an estimated $150 million, it gives him an exceptional amount of control over every aspect of his career, from records to tours to product endorsements. But with stakes that huge, it also makes superstardom a career necessity, and ever since making the deal Jay-Z has been remaking himself as a genre-crossing populist.
To wit, you glutton for punishment:
Hey. When you're wrong, you're wrong.
