Jay-Z and Gloria

Woo! If my mum drops such a bombshell, I think I would disappear on a Friday and appear on a Monday like Jesus but anyway am not Jay-Z. However, Gloria’s bold step to spill the beans to her son is just so ‘iron lady’. So Gloria Jay-Z’s mum was just tired of hiding the skeleton in the closet about her sexual orientation. She came clean and told Jay-Z that she is a lesbian.

OMG!! I know peeps how shocking that would be to like most of us but Jay-Z was such a cookie when he sang about it in his music single, ‘Smile‘ in his 44.4 album. The lyrics to the rap of this song just makes one wanna shed a tear.

In the song, which also features Stevie Wonder’s vocals, Jay-Z says: “Mama had four kids, but she’s a lesbian. Had to pretend so long that she’s a thespian.

“Had to hide in the closet, so she medicate. Society shame and the pain was too much to take.


Gloria’s sexuality revealed in Smile music single”Don’t matter to me if it’s a him or her. I just wanna see you smile through all the hate.

“Marie Antoinette, baby, let ’em eat cake.”

Jay-Z’s song ends with spoken word by his mum Gloria – who has also previously featured on a song on The Black Album.

She says: “Living in the shadow. Can you imagine what kind of life it is to live?
