Jay-Z has come out in support of gay marriage.
The rapper made the comments after President Obama said he supported states legalising marriage for same-sex couples. In an interview with CNN he said he thought the ban on gay marriage was "something that was still holding the country back". He added:

What people do in their own homes is their business.

You choose to love whoever you love. It's no different than discriminating against blacks. It's discrimination plain and simple.
When asked if he thought that Obama's stance on gay marriage might lose him votes among African-American religious leaders, Jay-Z said: "It's not really about votes. It's about people. Whether it costs him votes or not, it's the right thing to do, as a human being."

Yesterday, Jay-Z said that he was "absolutely" going to ask Obama to play the festival he is staging later this year. The festival, named the 'Budweiser Made In America' music festival, will place in Philadelphia's Fairmount Park on September 1 and 2. Speaking to Rolling Stone about Obama, the rapper said: "I'm gonna give him a call and I'm gonna try to get him to perform – do a little rendition of Al Green – but I doubt it."
