Beyonce has revealed intimate pictures from her controversial trip to Cuba with Jay-Z. The power couple received backlash last month from Cuban-American Congress members from Florida, among others, for violating the longstanding U.S. embargo against Cuba. The Department of Treasury has since confirmed that the trip to Cuba was authorized as a cultural exchange and therefore legal.
The trip received so much attention that a White House news conference after their trip ended up revolving around Jay-Z, otherwise known as Sean Carter, and Beyoncé. The reporter asked Press Secretary Jay Carney, amid laughs from fellow journalists, if Jay-Z received White House clearance for his trip to Cuba and whether or not he spoke to Obama about it.
She then proceeded to quote lyrics from the rapper’s new song, “Open Letter,” saying, “Boy from the hood/I got White House clearance/Obama said, ‘Chill, you gonna get me impeached/You don’t need this [expletive] anyway [sic]. Chill with me on the beach.'”
The rest of the press in the conference room could not contain their laughter as the journalist repeated Jay-Z’s lyrics. "I guess nothing rhymed with treasury,” Carney replied before later stating, “It’s a song. ... The president did not communicate with Jay-Z over this trip.”
