Jay-Z and Beyonce Are Ready For Charity and Grizzly Bear

Jay-Z and Beyonce Knowles were out in NYC earlier today to announce his upcoming "Answer the Call" charity concert, which will be held on Sept. 11. The show coincides with the release of his upcoming album The Blueprint 3, and all profits will go to the New York Police and Fire Widows' and Children's Benefit Fund. At the podium, Jay opened up about his growth as an artist, saying, "It's my evolution and it's me now in the forefront, not as the performer who looked back. . . but me taking the initiative being the one, and being the icon, or being the philanthropist." He and Beyonce took a little time off from their good deeds yesterday afternoon, when they headed to Brooklyn to see Grizzly Bear take the stage.

What? Who calls themselves an icon? That's a massive ego. Anywho, what I wanted to say (which I am repeating from another post) I think he MAY be trying to do something good but he is also doing this concert thing to give his album's debut some kind of edge...he has been at this a long time, retired and then came back but not with his best work. Just a thought.

Both of them are full of themselves, especially Jay Z, be a little more humble dude. btw, that skirt is atrocious , looks like Beyonce got caught in a slinky

NO ONE should refer to themselves as an icon. That was egotistical and classless, imo.

Agreed about the skirt. Personally, I don't like it. But otherwise she's super gorgeous and they look happy together :)
