Jay-Z appeared on CNN to express his enthusiasm for President Obama's historic announcement on equal marriage: "It's the right thing to do."
"I’ve always thought it as something that was still holding the country back. What people do in their own homes is their business. Who 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. ... It's the right thing to do, so whether it costs him votes or not - again, it's not about votes. It's about people. It's the right thing to do as a human being."
Part owner of an NBA team, songwriting, producing records, designing a fashion line, husband to Beyoncé, a brand new father ... Jay-Z has 99 problems but same-sex marriage ain't one.
