Jay-Z Supports President Obama’s Gay Marriage Stance

Jay-Z is backing President Barack Obama’s recent endorsement of gay marriage. During a recent interview with CNN, the rap executive felt that POTUS’s announcement of support for states to legalize same-sex marriage was the right thing to do.

“I’ve always thought it as something that was still holding the country back,” Jay said. “What people do in their own homes is their business and you can choose to love whoever you love. That’s their business. It’s no different than discriminating against blacks. It’s discrimination plain and simple.”

Hov is a longtime supporter of Obama, having backed his 2008 presidential campaign and appearing on Young Jeezy‘s ‘My President’ (D.C. Remix), which is a tribute to the president. Of course, Obama has made it no secret that he’s a Jay-Z fan. Obama even picked Jay over Chicago native Kanye West, who he called a “jackass” — twice.

When Jay-Z was asked if he felt Obama’s decision to support gay marriage would cost him votes, he disregarded the notion. “I think it was the right thing to do,” he said. “So whether it cost him votes or not — it’s really not about votes, it’s about people. So whether it cost him votes or not, I think it was the right thing to do as a human being.”
