Jay-Z Hooks Grandma Up For Her B-Day+Ashanti Speaks On Nelly Denying Her
Jay-Z has always spoken about his close ties to his grandma. And this week, he and the Mrs. laced her with some sweet birthday gifts. Details, plus Ashanti's take on Nelly denying their relationship when you read on...
Shawn Carter knows how to dote on his granny. He and his wife Beyonce threw his grandma Hattie (pictured above at the Yankees game) a lavish 85th birthday bash this week--that included a Rolls Royce, fab eats, and dancing. According to the NY Post:
Jay-z is a good grandson. For the 85th birthday of his grandmother, Hattie, the Brooklyn-born hip-hop mogul and his wife, Beyoncé, picked her up in a Rolls-Royce and took her to the Liberty Warehouse in Red Hook, a space with stunning views of the Statue of Liberty. The guests were entertained by dancers from the Boys & Girls Club when they weren't dancing themselves or devouring the Southern cooking.
In other news, after we posted this interview of Nelly denying ever having a "relationship" with Ashanti, it spread on the net like wildfire. Now, Ashanti herself feels the need to throw in her two cents. She decided to co-sign everything Nelly said:
Sigh. Honestly kid, we don't believe you either. You need more people. But we just don't really care enough anymore--so all this protesting makes the situation even more lame. Just sayin'.
