Remember when Beyonce and Jay-Z went to Cuba for their fifth wedding anniversary and everyone got all up in arms about? Well, even though the United States has for decades upheld laws that basically tell Americans not to travel to Cuba, Beyonce says she was still shocked by the amount of flack she received for going there.
She told ABC News on Monday:
You know, it was such a beautiful trip. I met some incredible children. I visited some incredible entrepreneurs. And it was really, it was really educational for me. I learned so much about so many people and the country.

Gwyneth Paltrow generally leaves a bad taste in my mouth — a taste eerily reminiscent of wilted kale — but I am capable of appreciating aspects of her personality that are actually kind of endearing. Like the solid effort she put into the embarrassing task of imitating famous rappers like Jay-Z, Kanye West and Macklemore, on “Ellen” yesterday. Her Beyonce isn’t bad either. But that Chris Martin impression needs work.
Baby Blue hath emerged from her castle and has deigned to bestow her royal side eye upon us commoners! No, but seriously, Beyonce and Jay-Z brought the beloved future President of the United States (Beyonce says the job is hers if she wants it) out to lunch with them and, yup, she’s as cute as ever.

Last night, Jay-Z went into the studio with Timbaland and Swizz Beatz and recorded a new song that he released a few hours later. “Open Letter” has a relatively simple, but completely hot beat and features Hov rapping about his ownership of the Brooklyn Nets and he and Beyonce’s recent controversial trip to Cuba.
“Boy from the hood but got White House clearance / Sorry y’all, I don’t agree with y’all appearance / Politicians never did shit for me / Except lie to me, distort history / Wanna give me jail time and a fine / Fine, let me commit a real crime.”
Hot 97 played the track over and over and over again this morning and I gotta tell you, I didn’t mind the break from Kendrick Lamar and the latest Rihanna track. When Jay’s on the radio, y’all gon learn today! Listen below! [Hot 97]
Beyonce and Jay-Z’s trip to Cuba is bothering the insanely gorgeous Stacey Dash. The former “Single Ladies” actress hopped on Twitter to let the most powerful couple in music know that they’re in the wrong for visiting the communist country.
Remember those “99 Problems” Jay-Z claimed to have and none of them being a bitch … well … nevermind. I don’t understand why Stacey Dash fights so hard to be taken seriously when she does things like pose naked in a bathtub and makes that her profile photo on Twitter–the very place she likes to hop on her soapbox and chastise those who don’t see the world through her green eyes.

Another day, another reason to be completely jealous of Beyonce and Jay-Z. I have always wanted to go to Cuba, but I’m totally paranoid about going because technically you’re not supposed to visit as a tourist. But yet here Jayonce is, celebrating their fifth wedding anniversary with my dream vacay. They are just the luckiest. Totally digging Beyonce’s “Poetic Justice” braids and Thakoon tunic, by the way.
