    Last year, Harry Belafonte, the acclaimed singer, actor and civil rights activist, was about modern celebrity and social responsibility. The always-outspoken Belafonte didn’t really hold back.

    Q: Are you happy with the image of members of minorities in Hollywood today?

    A: Not at all. They have not told the history of our people, nothing of who we are. We are still looking. … And I think one of the great abuses of this modern time is that we should have had such high-profile artists, powerful celebrities. But they have turned their back on social responsibility. That goes for Jay-Z and Beyonce, for example. Give me Bruce Springsteen, and now you’re talking. I really think he is black.

    Jay Z replied:

    I’m offended by that because first of all, and this is going to sound arrogant, but my presence is charity. Just who I am. Just like Obama’s is. Obama provides hope. Whether he does anything, the hope that he provides for a nation, and outside of America is enough. Just being who he is. You’re the first black president. If he speaks on any issue or anything he should be left alone. … I felt Belafonte … just went about it wrong. Like the way he did it in the media, and then he bigged up Bruce Springsteen or somebody. And it was like, ‘whoa,’ you just sent the wrong message all the way around. … Bruce Springsteen is a great guy. You’re this civil rights activist and you just bigged up the white guy against me in the white media. And I’m not saying that in a racial way. I’m just saying what it is. The fact of what it was. And that was just the wrong way to go about it.

      Welp.. I might have said she looks good in that pic, but that doesn’t mean her dress isn’t ugly as f*** …

      Bey’s fashion sense is getting worse day after day … You saw her GREEN dress she wore for the Boston show?


      As I said before, she really needs Solange and Rihanna for this ASAP!

    Gayz is an arrogant piece of $hit. He needs to get over himself.

    What strange awkward pose…why are they so far from one another? Must be painful to stretch your arms like that.

  12. Ruleyou August 3, 2013

    Damn, that n***** Jayz has an ugly mouth area,yuck! Beyonce must have low self esteem to marry this ugly m***** and have his ugly babies.

  13. Lolz August 3, 2013

  14. Natalie August 3, 2013

    I watched this interview and people take what Jay Z says too literally he is man of double entendres and many meanings which I like. Interpret it in your own way.
