Jay-Z Is Totally Down-to-Earth, Says Justin Timberlake

If Justin Timberlake could pucker up any harder to kiss Jay-Z‘s ass, he’d give himself a hernia. Sure, they collaborated on Magna Carta Holy Grail and they’re “friends”, but take it down a few notches, bro. Now Justin is insisting that Jay-Z is nothing like his on stage persona of some hardened thug or something (which… that’s definitely not his persona anymore) and he’s actually just a cool, normal guy and is actually acting when he’s performing.

From T Magazine:

“I try to talk to people about how much acting goes into music, how much of a character goes into what you put on stage.

“You ever sit down with Jay? He’s not the guy he is on stage. I’m not the guy I am on stage. I am a performer. It’s an elevated idea.”

Thanks, Captain Obvious. I mean… I dunno, am I missing something? Jay-Z is a great rapper and he clearly lives the lifestyle of flashing his money about and being a “boss” when not performing. So what? As for Justin, I don’t see a “persona” there, I see a singer… singing songs. It’s not like Lady GaGa or someone who puts on elaborate stage production and dresses up in wigs and costumes and shit, so I don’t know that this applies.

That being said, I like both JT and Jay-Z, I just kinda don’t get his point.
