Jay-Z Skips Grammys to Take Beyoncé on Pizza Date in Brooklyn

Jay-Z was a no-show at the 54th Annual Grammy Awards at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Sunday night (Feb. 12). That’s because he was taking his wife Beyoncé on a pizza date in Brooklyn.

Although Jay-Z and Kanye West won a Grammy for Best Rap Performance for “Otis” off their Watch the Throne album, and Bey was nominated for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration, both were nowhere to be seen at the Staples Center. Although it’s still unclear where Kanye was, Jigga was on a pre-Valentine’s Day with his wife at their favorite pizzeria, Lucali, in the Carroll Gardens section of Brooklyn, all according to US Weekly.

A witness told the celebrity-based magazine that the new parents “were just like a regular couple talking” and that Bey said goodbye to the restaurant’s owner and waitress. Grammy presenters Fergie and Marc Anthony accepted the Grammy on ’Ye and Hov’s behalf on Sunday night.

This was two days removed from the power couple surprisingly posting the first-ever pics of their newborn daughter Blue Ivy on a brand new Tumblr site.

In related news, the Throne was recently applauded by the Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy group for slapping an advisory warning on their colorful, almost psychedelic video for “Niggas in Paris.”

The video’s warning reads, “This video has been identified by epilepsy action to potentially trigger seizures for people with photosensitive epilepsy. Viewer discretion is advised.” —Jakinder Singh
