Before taking the stage at the Pauley Pavilion in Westwood for his “Blueprint 3” album promo tour, Jay-Z was seen courtside Sunday night (Nov 8) at the Lakers game at the Staples Center when the Los Angeles team took on the New Orleans Hornets, defeating them with a final score of 104 to 88. Only Jay-Z would make time to go to a basketball game just hours before a concert. You know you ballin’ when you got it like that!!
In related news, he accidentally told Gotham mag editor-in-chief Cristina Greeven Cuomo that procreating is at the top of he and his wife Beyonce‘s to-do list. So we should definitely be expecting a little Carter/Knowles any day now.
That’s big news from hip hop’s sneakiest couple, who wed secretly on a Tribeca rooftop and rarely even wear their own wedding rings in public. It’s also a change in attitude for Beyoncé, who admitted on “The View” in April that while she was interested in motherhood, she was in no hurry to hit the birthing room after seeing the process upclose when her sister Solange did it.
“I definitely want one, but I’m not ready for all of that,” she said then. “I don’t think a person should see that before her time. It was a little much. But I’m so in love with my nephew, and every time I see him I’m like, God, he’s just amazing.”
But the kid-friendly 28-year-old, who’s made more than 40 Make-A-Wish Foundation fulfillments, is ready to summon her inner Sasha Fierce and go for it.
