One of the main topics of speculation concerning last night’s Grammy Awards has been why Jay-Z, Beyonce and Kanye West weren’t in attendance. The hot rumor is that the three were boycotting the show because violent, unrepentant twat Chris Brown was invited to be a performer. And while we’re not sure what Kanye West was doing last night during the broadcast — we guess looking at himself in the mirror when he wasn’t tweeting — we now know what Jay and Bey were up to: eating pizza in Brooklyn at Lucali’s, the joint whose owner was stabbed by a mobster in a fight over a woman hit last year.
Instead, Beyonce, 30, and Jay-Z (real name: Shawn Carter), 42, took a Maybach from their home in downtown Manhattan’s Tribeca neighborhood to the cute Carroll Gardens section of Brooklyn — where they tucked into pizza at their favorite posh pizzeria Lucali.
Leaving one-month-old daughter Blue Ivy at home, the music super couple “were just like a regular couple talking and whatnot,” a witness tells Us Weekly, adding that other patrons failed to notice them. “They were sitting in front of the place closer to where they make the pizza.”
Two things: I have been to Lucali’s and “posh” is not a word I’d use to describe it. Granted, it’s nicer than most pizza joints in Brooklyn, but “posh?” Come on, US Weekly! And secondly, I have eaten the pizza at Lucali’s and it’s heavenly. So good call Jay-Z and Beyonce — eating dinner there was a way cooler move than sitting through the Grammys clownshow.
