Earlier we brought you news of Jay Z‘s convo with Van Jones (on Jones’ new CNN show) where he lit into the orange a-hole in the White House, who of course couldn’t take the heat and responded with a tweet.

During that conversation between Mr. Carter and Jones, the veteran things got just as deep on a personal level for him when spoke about why he and Beyoncé made the decision to fight to keep their marriage intact.

He referred to Bey as his “soulmate,” says he fought for their union because she’s “the person I love.”

“You can be in love, and you can love someone, but if you haven’t experienced love and you don’t understand it, and you don’t have the tools to move forward, then you’re going to have complications.”

He made the point that when you are in a relationship, couples can address their issues or just pretend that somehow on its own things will change for the better.

“For us, we chose to fight for our love, for our family. To give our kids a different outcome. To break that cycle for black men and women. We were never a celebrity couple, we were a couple who just happened to be celebrities. We are real people.”

Even though he’s addressed his infidelity issues in other interviews, Jigga told Jones that beyond apologizing, the key is changing one’s behavior

“You have to acknowledge the pain. You have to let that person have their say. You have to get on the floor, get on the mattress, and you have to really work through it and really be honest no matter how many times. It takes a while. It’s hard. It’s difficult to hear, it’s difficult to say, it’s difficult to listen to that pain. You have to be strong enough to go through that — and on the other side it’s beautiful.”

Meanwhile, here’s another interesting aspect of the interview. Jones also asked if Jay-Z would have forgiven Beyoncé if she’d been the one to cheat.

“I hope,” he said. “Because I love her the same way. No matter — no matter what side, I love her the same way.”

Carter added:

“Her strength…She’s the strongest woman I know. Her and my mother, they’re battling for number one,” the rapper concluded.

    I don’t defend what Jay-Z did or any man for that matter but Beyonce had to have some idea as to what she was getting into being involved with Jay-Z. He’s a hardened street thug who never hid the fact the he sleeps around. He brags and raps about using and tossing ho’s at his disposal. He always had a reputation in the industry. Maybe being young and naïve when Beyonce met J she was foolish enough to believe what a lot of women believe “my love will change him” or marriage will change him or having a child will change him not realizing that he can get beautiful gorgeous women who look just like you all around the world. I honestly believe J saw Bey as a trophy to conquer at that time she was the hottest, baddest chick in the game she was just a consolation prize for his rap status. He probably had to learn to love Bey over time and not just see her as a sex object and a prize. But I agree with the first post, these are just 2 normal people going through every day matters in the spotlight. But I’m glad to see that Jay-Z has evolved and matured into a space where he can admit it and talk openly about it, that’s the first step to sobriety.

  2. Shows that no matter how beautiful sucessful you are or even how good to your man you are they still feel the need to cheat. Black men have commitment issues anyway. I know it has to put a strain to know everyone knows your business , however I’m rooting for them.

  3. Interesting…I will always believe that black men never look at a women who cheats on them the same (especially if it’s someone they know). Most men, if not all men, never get over that image of the women sleeping with another man. They can’t handle it…
