Rap star, Jay-Z, has revealed that his mother is a lesbian. The popular rapper made the revelation in his new album, 4:44 where on its third track, Smile, he said that his mum, Gloria Carter, is a lesbian.
The rapper in the much anticipated album also apologised to his wife, Beyoncé for often womanising.
“Momma had 4 kids but she’s a lesbian/had to pretend so long that she’s a thesbian/Had to hide in the closet, so she medicate. ‘Society shame and the pain was too much to take/Cried tears of joy when you fell in love/Don’t matter to me if it’s a him or her,” he rapped.
His mother also featured on the track with a spoken word performance about her sexuality. “Love who you love, because life isn’t guaranteed,” she said.
