Like President Barack Obama, Hip-Hop titan Jay-Z has publicly announced his support for same-sex marriages. The rapper told CNN in an interview this week:

“I’ve always thought it as something that was still, um, holding the country back,” Jay-Z said of not allowing same-sex coupled to wed.

“What people do in their own homes is their business and you can choose to love whoever you love. That’s their business. [It] is no different than discriminating against blacks. It’s discrimination plain and simple.”

Do you agree with Jay-Z?
