We were mesmerized by these pictures of Gwyneth Paltrow, Chris Martin and Jay-Z hanging out at a beach BBQ when we first spotted them two weeks ago. Turns out, these super-rich BFFs don’t just like sipping pinot grigio together, they genuinely inspire one another.
Jay-Z, who is known as Uncle Jay to little Apple and Moses Martin, said of the Martin clan “They are a really cool family with beautiful kids, who happen to be good at the jobs they do.” And fueling the firestorm over whether he and Beyoncé plan to start a family soon, when asked what his plans were, he said “Kids? Of course.”
The best quote of the interview with Mr. Z though, came when he said that had he come across Chris Martin growing up in Brooklyn, Martin would have been victimized, for sure. Jay explained that had they met back in the day, it would have been “a different scenario.” He went on, “He couldn’t walk through Marcy. I was a different person then. I wasn’t open to the world and to cultures. I would have been, ‘Yo! Who are you? Give me your money.’ You couldn’t have a guy like Chris walking through Marcy. He’d have to get robbed. At best.” Of course, no one knows why Martin had a cast on his foot at the beach in these photos, it’s possible Jay gave him a beat down after getting “Clocks” stuck in his head one too many times.
