Jay Z Talks Beyonce's Fake Pregnancy Rumors, Blue Ivy's Music Taste!

Jay Z Talks Beyonce's Fake Pregnancy Rumors, Blue Ivy's Music Taste!

Jay Z suits up on the cover of Vanity Fair‘s November 2013 issue, on newsstands October 9.

Here’s what the 43-year-old entertainer had to share with the mag:

On his daughter Blue Ivy being his biggest fan: “She does like her mother [Beyonce's] music – she watches [Beyonce's concerts] on the computer every night. But my album came out and I don’t know if Blue ever heard any of my music prior to this album — she’s only 18 months old and I don’t play my music around the house. But this album was new, so we played it. And she loves all the songs. She plays a song and she goes, ‘More, Daddy, more . . . Daddy song.’ She’s my biggest fan. If no one bought the Magna Carta [album], the fact that she loves it so much, it gives me the greatest joy. And that’s not like a cliche. I’m really serious. Just to see her — ‘Daddy song, more, Daddy.’ She’s genuine, she’s honest, because she doesn’t know it makes me happy. She just wants to hear it.”

On wooing Beyonce before they began dating: “Well, you know, you’ve got to try first. You got to dazzle…wine and dine….she’s a charming southern girl, you know, she’s not impressed. But I would have definitely had to be this cool.”

On the fake rumors that Beyonce wasn’t pregnant: “It’s just so stupid. You know, I felt dismissive about it, but you’ve got to feel for her. I mean, we’ve got a really charmed life, so how can we complain? But when you think about it, we’re still human beings. And even in hip-hop, all the blogs — they had a field day with it. I’m like, We come from you guys, we represent you guys. Why are you perpetuating this? Why are you adding fuel to this ridiculous rumor?”

On trademarking Blue’s name: “People wanted to make products based on our child’s name and you don’t want anybody trying to benefit off your baby’s name. It wasn’t for us to do anything; as you see, we haven’t done anything.”

    Why no mention of his days as a crack cocaine dealer??

  • miss infamous

    I thought there was a woman who had a company named after their daughter way before Blue Ivy was even a thought! I wonder what happened with that? And I still dont believe Beyonce carried her daughter being pregnant before myself Ive watched that YouTube video where her belly folds/collapses lol NO STOMACH DOES THAT! lol

  • Ha

    I’ve tried my hardest but I cannot picture them in bed xD …. His response for the “wooing” part is cute though. I’m happy Beyoncé is not shallow lol

  • Ha

    @miss infamous: I have to agree with you. A pregnant belly does NOT fold like that hahahaha

  • [~Fug Face Man!ston~]

    @srprz: He’s rapped about that hundreds of times, what else would you like to see? LOL Hater.

    @6 – I’m talking about the Vanity Fair article quotes that JJ printed above; JJ just printed the cleaned-up version of him. And I don’t hate him, I just like the truth and not a polished-up version of someone’s life.

  • Veep

    I’m sorry, but just because you think the commoners aren’t good enough to understand that royalty can lie and get away with it doesn’t mean the commoners are actually that stupid. Please. She had a flat belly at 5 months. YouTube it. The TRUTH IS OUT THERE. Two poseurs.

  • kirki

    This story is crazy… But I’m sorry, I also think she faked the whole thing. We didn’t even realize her pregnancy, that wasn’t random! But she had people around her, she has relatives and close friends.. what about them? And of course, what is she going to say to that kid? That it was the same mix but in a different oven? And that she HAD to lie to save her career? Sick thing man

    I agree with #fatusankoh. I was heavily involved in the music industry and it is still preposterous the hatred from ppl who don’t know a thing about the industry and how hard these ppl work. These ppl who are talking about the video on Utube must not have seen pictures of Beyoncé at the beach with her beautiful belly fully exposed. Why don’t u focus on the good role model that she is in an industry that not everyone can endure. Fame is fleeting and only the strong survive and for her & Jay who handle fame with grace and integrity u haters would not last a day in their shoes. Ya’ll are so hung up on Utube as if that were the Holy Grail; it’s obvious that your comments match your IQ’s and get tons on points for stupidity.
