News: Jay-Z visited the White House

During the final moments of his performance at Verizon Center Wednesday night, Jay-Z casually dropped a gigantic boast: "I just came from the White House."

White House officials were button-lipped about the visit Wednesday, but confirmed on Thursday morning that, yes, Jay-Z did indeed visit 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. An official said the rapper toured the White House on Wednesday and had a quick, unscheduled visit with President Obama. The POTUS did not attend the concert.

Here is the review of Wednesday's concert.

My only question is: Did this fool pull his pants up when he went there? Or did he have his azz hanging out?

He's a leech.

Good for Jay-Z. He's got his finger on the pulse of a large section of the American population. Maybe he can provide some insight to the pres and help get this country turned around... one day at a time.

Question Guy,

You don't seem very intelligent. Jay-Z is a business mogul who is worth nearly half a billion dollars. He has plenty of tailored suits and he is photographed in them frequently. I'm sure he can also afford a belt. I recommend you buy a belt as well, but I think the best thing you can do with your belt is use it to hang yourself, since you're wasting precious oxygen and emitting carbon; since your comment indicates you lack the intelligence to provide anything of value to the ecosphere, you should do the ecological thing and eliminate yourself. No worries, we'll use you for fertilizer.

And this is news because...? So many other celebrities have visited the White House under other administrations, but I guess this is news because the celebrity is Black and the President is Black too...huh?

Is that why he visits the white house and you visit the WP article that reports it? Jay-Z came from where you probably are now in your life and you will probably never be close to his success or him on your best day. Stop hating and go finish stacking those cans of soup in isle 5.

Whats more telling is you are the one pointing out that the two of them are black, not the reporter. So the race references are made by you, not anyone else. Did you notice when other visited the white house before Obama was there the racial makup of the visitors or the president they visited? Did you notice that when Elvis Visited Nixon that they both were white? White guys like you lack self esteem if you are still trying to blame blacks for your hangups. Pathetic.

Its funny how some people hate you just because you are famous and they are not. I was at the Floyd Mayweather/Shane Moseley press conference and just watched how some fans who had no personal connections to either guys had hater issues with both of them. One guys spent his time yelling negative comments to mayweather yet recorded his every move before and after the thing ended. Could not take his eye off the guy yet acted as if Mayweather had slept with his girlfriend which is what Floyd ended up saying to him before he became so obnoxious that he was escorted to the exit. Another guy was yelling at Moseley for allegedly being a dead beat dad saying that he makes black men like him look bad as a father. As if Moseley is the only guy he knows thats could be a dead beat dad. I felt like telling him he was making himself look bad at that moment and maybe his issue is with perhaps his own dad and not Shane Moseley. These guys were simply trying to garner attention to themselves at these two athletes expense. But thats what people have to put up with when they are famous and rich, the not so famous and rich haters who envy them but like to use any excuse in the book to keep from admitting to that. I guess haters have a job to do to.

For those who have such preconeptions about Jay-Z. He is still a business man and he does have an idea about what ia appropriate for the right setting. He would not be worth 400 million dollars otherwise. If you want to know what he wore, click on this attached link . Can't we all just get along.

All You Jay-Z Critics and "Fashion Police" have NO idea of what you speak. IGNORANCE is Bliss.
