Jay-Z Declares Support For Gay Marriage

jay z gay marriage e1337092139145 Jay Z Declares Support For Gay Marriage

It’s a topic Hip-Hop routinely treats as taboo, yet a topic hot the lips of many American’s heading into November’s Presidential Elections.

Indeed, homosexuality -particularly same sex marriage- continues to be fiercely debated in the US, especially following Barack Obama‘s public backing of such groups last week.

Now, Hip-Hop heavyweight Jay-Z is weighing in on the matter, voicing his opinion in a new interview with CNN. Check out what he had to say after the jump…

Interesting!

Needless to say, this is sure to pour further fuel on the ever-raging debate. Whatever the case, Jay’s public support for same-sex unions is a “first” of sorts for Hip-Hop. For, well documented is the genre’s unfortunate history of homophobia; a practice hilariously ironic given the number of rapper’s that…you catch my drift.

In any case, what do you think…

Your thoughts?

    Of course after Obama support Gay marriage the fake Carters family now support Gay marriage too, great and now people would think they are the first famous people who support this when was Jay-Z when Cher and Madonna became the center of attention for doing this.

    I agree with Jay. People choose to love who the hell they want. I am not gay and I respect everyone’s love decision. Everyone was placed on this earth as their own and with a desire to be happy, with whoever they want. President Obama is right and Jay is right. Gay marriage does not affect america in no way. America needs to look at all the issues with causes division right before them. hypocrites

    Discrimination is Discrimination. America is too full of double standards. Damn.

    @ SUICIDE jay has always had his opinion no matter what. He was asked about it and answered based on what he believed. We need to rethink why does the Maya and the president has a close relationship with jay? How does Obama know so much about the troubled black communities? because he can confide in jay’s opinions and resolutions. Jay has always been thoughtful. Get the f*** out of here.

    It’s a shame that Jay-Z has stood up for the LGBT community before Beyonce. Aren’t most of Beyonce stans gay men? They wonder why their queen stays flopping while those who stood up for LGBT people like Rihanna, Gaga, Minaj, Mariah, Janet, Madonna, Cher, Whitney, Patti, Mary, Toni, Chaka, Britney, Christina and others stay winning. Remember. The gays are the ones the keep your longevity going in the entertainment game. Why you think Ciara, Ashanti and a few others having hard times making comebacks? They never openly supported the LGBT community…their potential fanbase.

    @ RIHANNA NAVY you are clearly out of your mind. Beyonce has a huge fanbase of gays. her stylist, her choreographer and losts of her friends are gay she has spoken about supporting gays a long time ago. b**** were you born yesterday. Are you sure you want to talk about flop. Cause I have cases for each of the names you mentioned. hahaha reading your comment makes no sense, you need to try harder. You just wanted to add the queen’s name in the comment section. did you dream of her today?

    this is the dumbest statement ever……

    Beyonce clearly has gay friends. Because she chooses not thank the gays ever moment doesn’t mean she doesn’t support the gay community.

    And when was the last time Janet, Toni, Patti, or Chaka had a platinum album???

    And Beyonce shows as much support as Janet, Toni, Patti, and Chaka…. please GTFOH…

    And based on your ignorant logic, MJ, The Bettles, Elvis, Celine, and Adele must REALLLY support the gays…. as their careers are among the greatest of all.

    And when has Rihanna “STOOD UP” for the LGBT community…. because she tweets gay slang??? Kisses on girls??? I mean really what has she done? And has Whitney (may the queen rest in peace) stood up for the LGBT community?

    I really wanna know. Im not trying to be funny

    Jay-Z is right about it not being about votes on this issue, ON THIS ISSUE. However, it is about votes in the 2012 Genereal elections, later this year. There are blacks who are saying they will not vote for Obama b/c of his support for gay marriage. If Obama loses this election and gawd forbid a republican wins, its goodbye democracy and hello Greece and austerity, the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. Period.!

    No matter how much pple try to glorify homosexuality, it’ll never be fully considered a good thing. Of course, God is the creator of everyone, gay or straight, but let’s always have it at the back of our minds that EVERY human being in this world has one sin or sins they are battling with. But that doesn’t make the homosexuality thing good. Neither is fornication or adultery good.
    Even the BIBLE has categorically stated (in more than one part) that men and women stopped having natural sex but turned to unnatural and perverted sexual acts.
    I am by no means saying that pple should be discriminated against on the grounds of their race or sexual orientation(or preference), but let us not pretend that it is “okay” to be gay. It is ONLY “okay” in terms of everyone having a choice as to how they live their life(lives), but we alll know that acts like homosexuality, lesbianism, et al are against God’s word. That is why he destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah.

    AND THEN AGAIN IN 1999 WHERE SHE PERFORMED AT A GAY RALLY IN EUROPE AND SHE’S SINGING “ITS NOT RIGHT, BUT ITS OKAY” WITH A BUNCH OF GAYS ON STAGE.

Yes you can love whoever you want to it’s your life what you do in your house is your business but marriage is an institution and when you chose to be with someone of the same sex you know that you can’t neither get married nor having children that’s the deal you chose.
    Marriage is an institution that can’t be change for the willing of few people who decided conciously to live their life differently. Love each other all you want no one is going to blame you for that but don’t touch to marriage.

Yes you can love whoever you want to it’s your life what you do in your house is your business but marriage is an institution and when you chose to be with someone of the same sex you know that you can’t neither get married nor having children that’s the deal you chose.
    Marriage is an institution that can’t be change for the willing of few people who decided conciously to live their life differently. Love each other all you want no one is going to blame you for that but don’t touch to marriage.
    _________________________________________________________

    Marriage changed from the old testament to the new testament….it differs from country to culture…. its procedure have changed… nothing about marriage is as it was in the biblical sense…

    I dont care either way, but lets not forget when it was ok for a man to have several wives…now imagined if that had not changed….or when a woman married a man she was consider more of a property that a man owned.

    As a gay man, I dont necessarily support or not support gay marriage. Hell marriage in general needs to be revamp.

    And as strong as ppl are opposing gay marriage , they should also be opposing divorces. There should be laws not allowing people to get divorced unless the husband or wife is unfaithful, because well thats what it says in the bible…

    @JOhnvdal :

    i agree , BTW , don’t get me wrong ! i have like 1000+ friend in FB and they are from different demographic and there are gays in there but usually i don’t talk about “religion , sex , color” in there or anywhere else …. but i do have my personal opinion on the topic , but you are right , i should go in a trip to a beautiful place like spain !

    i also believe that sexuality doesn’t define who you are ! and i leave it to god to judge at the end of the day ! my life is TOO busy to think about if anyone is gay , lesbian , etc … , all i want is peace and freedom for everyone ! but that good kind of freedom ! that’s all !
    BTW , i’m 21 , age is just a number , ask @ONYX’s fav ! ;)

    but yes , some ppl here are ….. s*** ! :lol:

    Well, I’m not voting republican…so Mitt won’t be getting my vote come November….but I do question whether or not I’m going to bother supporting Obama anymore after all this. I’m not thrilled with his endorsement of same sex marriage, but again I wouldn’t dare vote for Romney. So I don’t know. In 2008, I eagerly supported Obama…in 2012, eh. Maybe I’ll vote for him again, but I won’t be wearing any t-shirts or sporting any bumper stickers. And, truth be told, even though I don’t want Romney as a president…if Obama loses to him, I won’t be as crushed as I would have been prior to his statements about gay marriage.

    Far as Jay-Z is concerned. Meh. That was SO un-hiphop of him. He’s turned into a liberal corporate suck-up.

    When was it ok to have more than one wife?

    And also f*** this, jay rides obamas d***. Gays should not get married, they have civil partnerships they can get. I have no problem with gays (it aint natural in my opinion but what you do in pvt cant hurt me), but I will NOT be happy if I see men getting married, and will not get married in a church where gay marriages take place.
    But anyway Im not american so this wont affect me much. Just hoping I never see this happen in the UK.

    So you dont even read the bible??? ok….well no point in responding.

    And Im not saying I agree or disagree, but as strongly as people feel towards “gay” marriage, they should be feel the same way towards divorce. I guarantee they will be more “straight” divorces than gay marriages….

    Hmm haha gay people who get married doesn´t do it in a church darling. Don´t you know there´s a separation between the Church and the State in civilized countries? Not even half of the straight people get married by the church here in Spain. Civil marriage is what counts, and thankfully everybody can do it here since 2005 or so. Nobody died, nobody even remembers the controversy. The USA are next, you better be prepared and get over it :) It makes us all better, ask in Canada, Holland, Argentina and some others too

    Why dont they allow the civil unions that Gay peole can get by recognized by the states legally so that gay people have the same rights as straight couples, cuz to me it seems like gay people want the right legally and not much about the intstitution of marriage which from the bible states is between man and women and that being a religous thing cant affect so all this hoopla can be avoided for real. Call it a union and make it so that if when their partner dies they recieve the same benefits that married couples recieve.

    I don’t discourage gay marriage but I also keep in mind that this lifestyle is for individuals that are not going to procreate the natural way. Love is love and you really cannot help who you fall in it with. Have a beautiful one!

    good for Jay. The last thing I want any rapper to do is condemn a group of people. Rap has a history of being misognistic, glorifying violence, drugs, murder, greed, so for a rapper, or anyone in hip hop to condemn homosexuality would be absolutely ridiculous!!

    good job Jay.

    Oh suicideblonde please save your patriotic b.s. and quit taking everything so damn seriously. Does it matter when Jay announces his support for gay marriage?? You think he’s jumping on a President Obama bandwagon but I bet you would have said the same thing about Kanye. But Kanye has been an outspoken supporter of gay marriage for 6 or 7 years now.

    Oh and that grape juice.. Did you even bother to do some research before writing the article? Not trying to sound rude but this is NOT a hip hop ‘first’ at all! Kanye West AND P. Diddy have both been outspoken in support of gay couples right to marry. You probably never heard about it because it wouldn’t fit the media narrative of hip hop artists being more homophobic than other artists.

    Okay now I see the scheme. This is why CNN actually devoted time to discuss Rihanna unfollowing Chris Brown on twitter as though they were discussng the many service men and women who have been killed in this senseless war on terror!

    Enters this bullsh** by the BIGGEST HOMOPHOB & MISOGYNIST IN RAP MUSIC HISTORY! Well Jay-Z, how DARE YOU COMPARE a person’s sexual orientation with the CONTINUED ORGANIZED SYSTEM of RACIAL DISCRIMINATION experienced by African-Americans in America! Wow…really?

    Listen BEYONCE’S PET CAMEL:

    1) What is wrong in America is YOU SELLING DOPE TO THE PPL IN YOUR COMMUNITY! You have been responsible for drug addicts committing crimes (rapes, robberies, murders) so that you could fund a career in music!

    2) What is wrong in America is YOUR BEATING of WOMEN (but Oprah loves you so I guess your BEATING OF WOMEN isn’t that bad).

    3) What is wrong in America is YOU CALIING WOMEN B**CHES, WH**ES, SL*TS etc IN YOUR RAP SONGS for many many many many years… 20yrs to be exact (but Russell Simmons the CEO of Def SCAM, seems to have developed amnesia when it comes you and your LYRICS & ENTIRE SONGS downing & humiliating women)!

    4) What is wrong in America is YOU USING THE WORD “F*GGOT” in your RAP SONGS throughout the years!

    But hey this is America, the LAND OF MEDIA-DRIVEN “SMOKE & MIRRORS” so lets all celebrate the CHANGE WE HAVE WITNESSED IN SEAN CARTER! Wow,
    it’s like the latest installment of SILENCE OF THE LAMBS. …..”Can you see my transformation”?
