Jay Z’s Mom Reveals How She Came Out To Her Son



You may or may not have been shocked when Jay Z casually dropped that his mom was a lesbian on his new album, 4:44 with the song “smile”.

“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 / Cried tears of joy when you fell in love / Don’t matter to me if it’s a him or her.”

Gloria Carter opened up in an ¬†interview with the D’USSE Friday Podcast, addressing the song and revealed how she came out to her son.

“Me and my son, we share a lot of information. I was sitting there and I was telling him one day, I just finally started telling him who I was, besides your mother, this is the person that I am. This is the life that I live. My son started actually tearing ’cause he’s like, ‘That had to be a horrible life, Ma.’ I was like, ‘My life was never horrible. It was just different.’ So that made him want to do a song about it.”

It’s sweet to think of Jay Z having a sentimental moment with his mom, and who knew he was the type to “shed a tear”!? It makes sense considering how emotional the album 4:44 has been including the track where he apologizes for cheating on Queen B.
