Jay-Z made his first public appearance since daughter Blue Ivy was born at the reopening of 40/40, the New York City club he co-owns, Wednesday.
Let’s get this out of the way: Beyonce wasn’t there. There was some speculation that the new mama would attend the event. But considering she had a baby less than two weeks ago, that rumor seemed about as real as that interview she gave to Star U.K..(Not real at all!)
The rapper also didn’t answer any questions about his growing family to the reporters who “bum-rushed” him, according to Us Weekly. Instead, he opted to show pictures of Blue to his actual friends while drinking champagne.
Jay-Z’s billionaire buddy Warren Buffett, singer Ashanti and Russell Simmons did attend the club reopening. Drummer/Tina Fey-sandwich sharer Questlove was also there and sent some fantastic tweets about the coat check area.
“Ok, I think I'm watching the Real Housewives Of 40/40's coat check room. 6 chicks bout to take earrings off and apply vaseline & throw down,” he tweeted.
