Jay-Z has opened up about his famous other half Beyoncé in a brand new interview with Vanity Fair, telling the magazine how he pursued the “charming Southern girl” and joking that she’s “gangsta now.”
The rapper - real name Shawn Carter - recalled the early days of he and Bey’s courtship, saying: “Well, you know, you’ve got to try first. You got to dazzle . . . wine and dine.”

The Magna Carta star said that “of course” he pursued Beyoncé, and added that he believes the Love On Top singer would still have dated him had he not been a high profile rapper - so long as he was still “cool.”
Jay revealed: “If I’m as cool as I am, yes. But she’s a charming Southern girl, you know, she’s not impressed … But I would have definitely had to be this cool.”
However, it appears Beyoncé may not be such a wide-eyed Southern belle these days!
When quizzed by the publication, Jay confirmed that the lyric on his latest album ‘She was a good girl ’til she knew me’ is about Queen B, before laughing and admitting: “She’s gangsta now.”
Jay and Bey were recently named Forbes' highest-earning celebrity couple of 2013.
