It appears that you can up your "cool" if you select the right girlfriend, well atleast that is what Jay-Z says. During a new interview with Hollywood Actress Gwyneth Paltrow (who Jigga knows being friends with her husband, Coldplay's Chris Martin), Jay-Z revealed what he says is his secret to his "coolness."
Q: You are the coolest man on Earth, how the f did you get like that? A: I'm around great women, starting with my mom. Women keep men cool. The hotter the chick the cooler the guy … that sounds like a really bad rap line! (GOOP)
In related news, earlier in the year Jay's friend Dream Hampton wrote a "Power Couple" feature for Ebony Magazine explaining HOV's personal relationship with wife slash pop star, Beyonce.
"For all their might as solo power players, their relationship is remarkably free of drama. They sit around in their pajamas and watch cable and snuggle, which may, after all, be the ultimate fantasy. When they climb off the couch from beneath their favorite cashmere throws or disembark from their yachts, they work as if James Brown were their boss. One of them is always touring, always in the studio, always somewhere making kinds of multimillion dollar-deals that keep them on the Forbes list." (Ebony Magazine)
