While Beyonce and Jay-Z just finished up their cruise on their $250K a week yacht after spending a month in The Hamptons in their $500K a month rental, Jay-Z gave an interview to The New York Times. In that interview, Jay-Z said he has no idea why people think he supported the Occupy Wall Street protests, because he didn't. He thought they were a waste of time and that you can't just demonize someone because they are in the 1% like him. I mean he knows that in a few years if there is still an Instagram that his daughter is going to be showing off her photos on that rich people of Instagram thing and he is going to look foolish saying he supports the protests while he spends $5M a month on entertainment and is in the upper 1% of 1%.
“I don’t know what the fight is about. What do we want? Do you know? I think all those things need to really declare themselves a bit more clearly because when you just say that ‘the 1 percent is that,’ that’s not true. Yeah, the 1 percent that’s robbing people, and deceiving people, these fixed mortgages and all these things, and then taking their home away from them, that’s criminal, that’s bad. Not being an entrepreneur. This is free enterprise. This is what America is built on.” He then went on to say that he had to leave right then because he had to go meet some contractors because they were paving his driveway with 24K gold and that all the guests at his daughter's first birthday would receive a 5 carat diamond and some land.
