Jay Z supports gay marriage

I completely forgot to post this earlier but this is actually big news. If you were online earlier you may have read about Jay Z putting together a large music festival scheduled to take place later this year in Philadelphia. So far they haven't announced the entire lineup of acts that will be joining Jay at the festival but it is sure to be a huge deal by the time it gets here. What we do know is that Jay has invited the president to show up at the "Made in America" festival. Also,we know that Jay Z stands behind the president on his decision to endorse gay marriage. In fact he had a lot to say about the issue as you'll see in the video below.

“I’ve always thought it as something that was still holding the country back. 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...I think 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.” - Jay Z
