JAY-Z’s Mom Gloria Talks About His Reaction When She Came Out Of The Closet...

One of the most buzzed-about songs on Jay-Z’s “4:44” album is “Smile,” in which the rapper’s mother, Gloria Carter, comes out as a lesbian. 

Months after the revelation made global headlines, Carter reflected on the experience and her famous son’s emotional reaction to hearing the news, in a candid interview with the D’USSE Friday podcast.

“Me and my son, we share a lot of information, so I was sitting there and I was telling him one day, I just finally started telling him who I was,” Carter said in the interview, which first aired Tuesday. “Besides your mother, this is the person that I am, you know? This is the life that I live.”

Jay-Z, she added, “actually started tearing, because he was like, ‘That had to be a horrible life, Ma.’ And I was like, ‘My life was never horrible, it was just different.’ So that made him want to do a song about it.”
Still, Carter was apprehensive about sharing her private life on an album that would surely be heard by millions. “When it first happened, I was sharing myself [with him], not to share myself with the world,” she noted.

After a series of deep discussions with her son, however, Carter eventually came around, writing a poem, “Living in the Shadows,” while traveling to the studio which eventually was used as the spoken word outro on “Smile".

    I kissed a girl just to try it
    I hope my boyfriend don't mind it

    It felt soo soo good.....

    1. We girls, we are so magical
      Soft skin, red lips, so kissable
      Hard to resist, so touchable
      Too good to deny it
      Ain't no big deal
      I kissed a girl and I liked it
      just Smile

    2. TGW am sure Katty perry was just messing around, that girl is too enlightened to wait till her 60's like Gloria Carter did to come out if she was in the closet.☺☺☺


    3. Pipi Yoo!
      The music vid gets me every time!
      Totally enjoyable!

      @ LEP,she may be or may not be. Even though I think She isn't but might be what is called errrr....errr Bi-experimentalπŸ˜‰



      And @ Pipi Yoo!
      ....🎢Ain't no big deal...
      It's innocent....🎢

    4. no big deal at all.


  4. Come out as a lesbian at what age? Disgusting people.

  5. May God deliver us from evil. And mami water spirits.
    Remember, what you talk about often, watch often and do not vehemently and openly condemn, will soon be your experience.
    Be careful what u watch and pay attention to.

  6. people like us are living in shadows, I can't deny the fact that I love women, I have always loved them, sometime just imagining being with the right lady gets me wet but am a Nigerian and it is forbidden so I will take that feeling to the grave.

    1. You don't have to take it to your grave, I know so many Bi-curious people like you on sdk.

      Live your fantasues remember that you only live onceπŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰


    2. I feel sorry for you. There is another life. The everlasting life with Christ.

  7. Well their cup of coffee I guess

    Good that they are on the same page with it and not like Nigeria where they would have paraded her around like the people of Ebonyi state do to
    their sexually adventurous women😊😊😊


  8. Barracudianusaurusunamon - Hi, Guys. It's me again. (:

    So, she became sexually oriented homosexually before she gave birth to him or after, LOL. confusing celebrities and their BS.

    Yours Blogospherially.

  9. I think that it is totally unfair that people will see lesbians and gays as things to be considered or sexual identity but see a threesome as bad. I mean why can't I love two men at the same time? I should be free to love who I want and I should be free to have consenting sex with any and who I want, so what if I can't enjoy sex with one man? What if I can't be satisfied until I have both holes filed during sex? anyways just like it will be termed a fantasy, I believe that a girl sleeping with a fellow girl or boy doing same with a fellow boy is mere fantasy.

  10. Just like Bruce coming out when you are now a parent. Causing confusion on your children life.

  11. That means Jayz was birth by mistake, cos she was still in d closet right?

  12. Some parents sabi disgrace person sha! Wat rubbish! Wetin she hope to achieve by coming out? She for remain inside closet abeg....
