Jay-Z, Kelly Clarkson
Jay-Z says his recent concert with Kelly Clarkson could have been "the oddest pairing ever," but turned out to be a demonstration of racial accord.
"On the show as well were Third Eye Blind and Kelly Clarkson," Jay-Z wrote on RapRadar about his Wednesday concert at the University of Arizona. "I thought that to be the oddest pairing EVER, but soon realized, it's what I've always professed. There is NO such thing as BLACK music or WHITE music only GOOD or BAD music."
He said he didn't get to share his thoughts during the show due to technical difficulties — and because he was having so much fun.
"It's stupid cool to like things that are not like you, and that goes for outside of music," he wrote. "If you're an African-American you can have a Jewish friend."
The rap icon says he hopes to see more diverse concert lineups in the future ("outside of the one or two festivals a year or [Z100's] Zootopia") and says he's already plotting his next gig: "I'm putting that into the universe. Next up Taylor Swift and Uncle Murda!!"
