Ooo is Jay-Z getting himself in trouble with our nation's LEADER?!
Even though Jay and President Barack Obama are friendly, the White House is NOT super pleased about the rhyming master's Open Letter accusations hinting that Obama pulled strings so that Jay and Beyoncé could fly to Cuba for their 5 year wedding anniversary.
White House spokesman Jay Carney explains:
"I guess nothing rhymes with ‘Treasury,’ because Treasury offers and gives licenses for travel.
I am absolutely saying that the White House, from the president on down, had nothing to do with anybody’s personal travel – anybody’s travel to Cuba."
Jay may be musical royality, but that doesn't mean he can make sh*t up about the President!
Granted, it's a song, thus artistic liberties are bound to be taken.
And hey, at least Jay and Bey managed to make it to their destination so that Jay could get his lips around those Cuban cigars he apparently covets!
