If you remember, Jay Z held a “Made in America” concert not too long ago and had just about everybody and their mother come out to perform. Well nobody’s mom performed, but you know what I’m saying. In the meantime, they made a movie out of it. Here’s the trailer.
So we’ve been hearing a lot lately about Kim Kardashian and Beyonce not getting along very well. The two of them were both in attendance at the “Made in America” festival put on by Jay-Z. Ron Howard was also there filming a documentary about Jay-Z and hip-hop culture. A source close to Beyonce had to say this about what happened at the event…
“Kim was desperate for attention in the VIP area and was getting in the way of cameras that were supposed to be filming Jay-Z,” said a source on the scene. “She kept saying she was a huge fan of Ron Howard and would do anything to be cast in one of his films, so Kim was using this as an opportunity to impress the movie maverick. Beyonce wasn’t amused that Kim was using her husband’s documentary to audition for Ron. So, she took Kim to one side and told her that the day wasn’t about her, it was about Jay-Z, his work in organizing the event and there were other celebrities and musicians there that needed coverage too.”
What an epic moment. Towards the end of the night last night Jay-Z joined headliner Pearl Jam at the “Made in America” music festival in Philadelphia. They performed Jigga’s famous track “99 Problems”. Love seeing hip-hop and rock music come together like this.

You do not want to miss this as he will have some major names hitting the stage. The event starts at 2 PM Eastern time.
