I wish Jay-Z and Beyonce would just shut up the hell up about their marriage. OK. We get it, Jigga. Your dick purchased a ticket to the OPP Express while Beyonce was at home cutting up lemons for all of the tea she was about to spill. Then after everyone drank from the blessed mother’s golden chalice you showed up right on time with 4:44 to tell your side of the story. That should be it right? NOPE! Jay-Z added another leg to his apology tour just in time for tonight’s Grammys by showing up on the first episode of CNN’s The Van Jones Show yesterday to explain why he and Bey chose to stick it out.
According to E! News, Jay was very open and honest during his interview with Van Jones, giving out relationship advice that could only come from someone who’s one-half of a couple that loves to talk about themselves constantly. When Jones asked “What is it about this marriage that’s so special that you would fight this hard to save it?” In my mind I heard Jay saying something like, “Because she FINE!” But instead he said this;
“That’s my soul mate. It’s the person I love,” said the music man. “If you haven’t experienced love or don’t understand it or you don’t have the tools to move forward then you are going to have complications. Period.”
Oh, but the sage advice didn’t stop there. As Jones looked on like an overzealous fan boy waiting to spit some of his favorite lines for Jigga during the commercial break he asked “What advice would you have for men who have caused pain in marriages?” And Jay had this to say;
“The best apology is changed behavior. You have to acknowledge the pain and you have to let that person have their say. You have to get on the floor, get on the mattress. You have to work through it. really be honest. It takes a while. It’s hard. it’s difficult to hear, difficult to stay, difficult to listen to that kind of pain—but you have to be strong enough. But on the other side, it’s beautiful.”
I’ve honestly never believed in any of Jay and Bey’s infidelity crap, because at the end of the day, like Jay said in the remix for “Diamonds From Sierra Leone” “I’m not a businessman, I’m a BUSINESS, MAN!” And for the two of them it’s always business as usual from Solange’s Kung-Fu demonstration to Beyonce dressing as a bat wielding deity to remind her husband “I run this muthafucka”. Now it’s Jay’s turn to dress up like Lucious Lyon and tell the world that he and Beyonce’s empire remains strong.
And speaking of strong, during the interview Jay had some pretty strong opinions in regards to recent comments from current national unnatural disaster Donald Trump. When asked how he felt about the president’s recent “shithole countries” comment Jay replied with:
“It is disappointing and it’s hurtful. It really is hurtful, more than so … everyone feels anger but after the anger, it’s real hurtful because it’s looking down at a whole population of people and it’s so misinformed because these places have beautiful people and beautiful everything. This is the leader of the free world speaking like this”
Jones then went on to say that Trump claims he’s dropping black unemployment then asked Jay if that makes him a good leader, to which Jay almost immediately answered with a “No.” Well, of course you know ol’ Twitter Fingers Trump had to address Jay because that’s just what he does. Trump shot this tweet in Jay’s direction this morning:
Somebody please inform Jay-Z that because of my policies, Black Unemployment has just been reported to be at the LOWEST RATE EVER RECORDED!

Big Mistake Don Cheeto. ‘YUGE! Because now you’ve got to deal with the Beyhive. Or better yet, someone please send Solange over to the White House so she can kick that damn phone outta Trump’s hand…
