Jay Z, I think I love you




I used to really despise Jay Z. His wife Beyonce as well. I didn't dislike them separately, just together. I hate, HATE, HATE "super couples". Husband is really into Jay Z's music though, and I have to admit, since Blueprint 3 came out last year, I am too now. He's a clever guy with witty raps, and it's impossible to not be impressed by the business sense the guy has. He's incredibly conceited, but for some reason that doesn't bother me too much. It does bother me that he refers to Beyonce as his "high yellow broad", "high yellow" being an old southern term for "light skinned black". Sometimes I like to sit around and think about how much I would LOSE MY MIND if some guy called me his "high yellow broad". But then he goes on to mention Benetton (my FAVORITE part of 80's fashion) and all is forgiven. So Jay Z, you won me over. I'm sure you'll be able to sleep better at night now. Also, please get in touch next time ya'll are in Houston, we totally need to hang out.

I really hate super couples too, but feel strangely sad when they break up...?

I'm totally the same way. I really dislike David Arquette and Courtney Cox, but when I heard they were getting divorced, it was shocking! And really sad, I guess because they had been together for like 11 years. Which is nearly forever in Hollywood terms. Sad :(

Wonder what you think of SPEIDI (Spencer and Heidi from The Hills) LOL. I don't watch the show, but they seem crazy.
