Jay-Z said he was happy when his mother came out

We will soon see rapper Jay-Z open up to David Letterman about his mom, Gloria Carter, coming out publicly as a lesbian.

Jay-Z has a song about the moment on last year’s album 4:44, which included the track “smile,” about his mother coming out.

In the next episode of Netflix’s My Next Guest, Jay-Z says “I cried because I was so happy for her that she was free.”

Jay-Z told Letterman that during the time his 4:44 album was being made, was when his mother came out. He said he knew his mom was a lesbian but it was the first time a conversation between the two was held.

The Jay-Z episode begins streaming globally on Netflix on Friday, April 16.
