JAY-Z has finally come clean and admitted to cheating on wife Beyonce.
In a new interview he reveals how therapy helped set him straight.
We all know Beyonce pretty much accused JAY-Z of cheating on her in her Lemonade album…but JAY-Z didn’t fess up to it, until now.
He said, “I grew so much from the experience. But I think the most important thing I got is that everything is connected. Every emotion is connected and it comes from somewhere. And just being aware of it. Being aware of it in everyday life puts you at such a…you’re at such an advantage.”
Before he was referred to a therapist through friends, he said that he realized he was still holding on to a lot of pain from his childhood.
JAY-Z said, “You have to survive. So you go into survival mode, and when you go into survival mode what happen? You shut down all emotions. So even with women, you gonna shut down emotionally, so you can’t connect.”
The interviewer, Dean Baquet, asked Jay, “You can’t connect because of the way you feel about yourself, you mean?” and JAY-Z said, “Yes. In my case, like it’s, it’s deep. And then all the things happen from there: infidelity…”
JAY-Z also talked about his complicated relationship with Kanye West and more.
