Jay Z dishes on wooing Beyoncé and how his daughter is his 'biggest fan'
While speaking with Vanity Fair's contributing editor Lisa Robinson, Jay Z gushed about Blue Ivy and the joy it brings him to hear her say she likes his songs. Apparently, Beyoncé claims that Blue prefers her father's music, but he says that isn't the truth: "She does like her mother's music-she watches [Beyoncé's concerts] on the computer every night." Blue does love her father's music too, though. "She's my biggest fan. If no one bought the Magna Carta [album], the fact that she loves it so much, it gives me the greatest joy. And that's not like a cliché. I'm really serious. Just to see her-'Daddy song, more, Daddy.' She's genuine, she's honest, because she doesn't know it makes me happy. She just wants to hear it."
He also tells his childhood growing up in Brooklyn and wooing Beyoncé -- he feels strongly that even if he was a gas station attendant, not his famous self, he'd have been able to date her, as long as he was "as cool as [he] is" now -- and how thanks to him, she's no longer a good girl ("She's a gangsta now.").
