Are You Ready For The Best Moment Of The Grammys?

So, Jay Z was pretty much the best thing at the 2013 Grammys. Not because of his win for “No Church In The Wild,” although that is a good song, and really adds something to The Great Gatsby trailer. Not even because Jay Z is married to Beyonce, who wore some kind of pants suit, because I guess when you are Beyonce you can pretty much do what you want. No. Because of this. Right here:

Jay Z Grammys

 

I like the way that Jay Z has decided to just sit around, swilling cognac, as though the Grammys were his personal billiard room. Jay Z, you are Jay Gatsby. You will be hunting tigers through the Bois de Boulogne next, and it will be fabulous. Also, I think you are wearing some kind of massive ring possibly shaped like a tiger. Whatever you’re doing, we want to be you. We can’t go anyplace and swill cognac. Live the dream. Live it forever.

And in case you’re interested in accomplishments, here is the video of “No Church in The Wild.” Which is also cool, though probably not quite as cool as just chilling with your cognac, like some sort of Roman Emperor.

    This is actually really disgusting. And the fact that you think it’s cool makes you look really immature. Are you some 16 year old kid, who brags about drunk episodes, puking in cabs?

    This shows very weak character on Jay Z. Can’t even handle going to the GRAMMYS for a couple hours without having to get drunk?
    Secondly, to act like youre that entitled, just because you’re rich, shows more weak character.
    I’ll face it; I do enjoy a lot of rap music. A lot of tupac songs, some biggie, some nas, some ice cube, some snoop. But I haven’t liked a single Jay Z song..since..Can I get A.
    The guy isnt good. He’s just another rapper.

      Um, have you ever had cognac? Not disgusting. Also, he’s at the Grammys celebrating his wildly successful career. How is wanting celebrate indicative of a weak character exactly?

      Hahaha you already got told so don’t mind me. I’m just sitting here laughing at that hilarious “rappers even racist white people have heard of” list you just dropped for cred. Hahahaha.

    While I whole-heartedly agree that Jay Z is incredibly accomplished, he is NOT Jay Gatsby.

    Swilling cognac by yourself is not Gatsby-esque.

    The only thing truly Gatsby-esque is sitting in a tux amidst your party guests, looking fruitlessly for the one woman you want to be there, while having pretty flapper girls massage champagne into your hair while a 40-piece big band plays in the background.

    Anything less is why the term “balling” was created.
