Since America elected the former host of Celebrity Apprentice and the man that gave us Omarosa as President, anything is possible in American politics. Radar Online is reporting that Jay Z is interested in running for political office.
Jay Z and Beyoncé went hard for Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election, even performing at a last-minute concert for the candidate in Ohio. The power couple has also developed a strong relationship with the Obamas over the past 8 years. Now, a source tells Radar that rubbing elbows with the powerful political figures has given the hip hop mogul the itch.
“Jay Z is really considering running for political office in New York and Beyoncé is 1000 percent supportive of her husband’s decision… Beyoncé told Jay Z that running for political office would be a really good next step for his career and she feels like it will also give him a sense of purpose.”
But it’s not just Beyoncé encouraging Blue Ivy’s daddy. The source adds the current and former First Families have personally given him the go-ahead.
“The Obamas and Clintons have told Jay Z on numerous occasions that he should get involved in politics. They told him that he would make a great leader. Jay Z not only has star power, but he would have a ton of support from his fans, as well as from past administrations.”
Could we really see a Kanye West/Jay Z team on the 2020 ballot? Honestly, I wouldn’t read too much into this report. Though it’s possible for Jay Z will get involved in political causes and initiatives, I highly doubt he will actively seek elected office.
But, again, President-elect Trump has proven anything is possible. With that, Beyoncé has my full support for a presidential run in 2020! (Sorry, Kanye & Jay Z)
