“So I go to the Jay Z concert and I am invited to the after-party. I was talking to another actress that was there, who was also talking to Jay Z and she touched Jay Z’s chest. Beyoncé came walking up and her demeanor was like, ‘Get your hand off my man’s chest!’”
Who the hell was it? Haddish would not blab.
Nodding. Concurring. Smiling. Yes, that noises precisely like a Bush in discussion.
