Jay Z couldn’t get Hillary Clinton to the White House, but RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that the 46-year-old rap mogul hubby of superstar Beyonce is getting ready to run for his own political office!
As fans know, the rapper and his 32-year-old “Lemonade” singer wife openly support the Democratic party. Aside from Beyonce performing the National Anthem at President Obama ‘s inauguration in 2012, both also performed at a last-minute rally for Clinton in Cleveland during this presidential campaign.
But after Clinton’s recent defeat by President-elect Donald Trump , the insider said, “Jay Z is really considering running for political office in New York and Beyonce is 1000 percent supportive of her husband’s decision.” “Beyonce and Jay Z became friends with Barack Obama and Michelle and they have always been close with the Clintons,” said the source. “The Obamas and Clintons have told Jay Z on numerous occasions that he should get involved in politics.” “They told him that he would make a great leader,” the source told Radar. “Jay Z not only has star power, but he would have a ton of support from his fans, as well as from past administrations.” Kanye West, who may or may not still be friends with Jay Z announced at the MTV Video Music Awards this year that he would also run for president in 2020. He also found some support on Twitter following the recent elections that would pair the rapper with former First Lady Michelle Obama. As Radar previously reported, the father to four-year-old Blue Ivy , put his music career on hold last year so that his wife, Beyonce, could release the “Lemonade” album and go on a world tour. Said the insider, “Beyonce told Jay Z that running for political office would be a really good next step for his career and she feels like it will also give him a sense of purpose.”
