In other Jay-Z news....

Famed actor Harry Belafonte has expressed an interest in sitting down with Beyonce and Jay Z to discuss comments he'd made about their political activism (or lackthereof).  And Jay's snapback comments in a recent song.  During a recent interview with MSNBC, Mr. Belafonte said, 

"I would be hard pressed to tell Mr. Jay Z what to do with this time and his fortune. All I can be critical is of what he is not doing,” the entertainment and Civil Rights icon said. “This conflict that is emerging was not from me as a direct attack on Jay Z or Beyonce. I was at a press conference in Switzerland. Questions were raised by the international press. They asked about the artists and the social engagement of the past based on a film we were watching…and how artists responded earlier in my life and how they responded today.”

“And I made the observation that the highly powerful voice that our community has – Black America has – there is so much celebrity power that it was sad to see that the collective of the celebrity power had not been applied to bring consciousness to the inequities that we face,”

“Having said that, I would like to say to Jay Z, to Beyonce: My heart is wide open and filled with nothing but hope and the promise that we can sit and have a one-on-one. And lets understand each other rather than try to answer these questions and these nuances in a public place.

Watch the clip above.

If you want something to hate them for this isnt it because they stay doing charity and i know yall hatin ass know this cause you focus on B and Jay more than their actual fans....i dont understand haters....if you gonna hate on somebody for being great just hate them for that reason, why make up reasons to hate them??

During Harry's prime he

During Harry's prime he walked with MLKing and other top named black & white artist. Aretha, Stevie and many others marched the streets in the name of justice or for a cause. These kids now only care about how many cars, red bottoms and how many baby's I can have with wide butt strippers. You have to have it in your heart to care about others. Be the example not the problem.......alllll-right

It irritates me when the

It irritates me when the average person focuses on calling celebrities out for their service work. I work in non-profit as a volunteer recruiter, and it is literally like pulling teeth to get the average person to come donate some of his or her time. People give the most ridiculous excuses for why they can't give 1 hour of service on a Saturday. It's disgusting honestly. If you can't give time then donate $5. Can't do that? Donate old clothes or shoes or refer a friend! Do something other than point the finger at others. My views don't apply to people like Harry who have done a lot for us. We can all do more to take care of our community.

I agree with Mr. BElafonte,

I agree with Mr. BElafonte, they do not use their power for good use. Its all about the power for both of them, which is one the reason they got together. Unfortunetly, I do not think that beyond, is well equiped and knowledgeable to do such things.

I am glad that someone else

I am glad that someone else is calling these two to task for doing nothing to help their people or any real causes with their celebrity. Even Angelina Jolie has a cause. These two are afraid to alienate the yte population.
