Actor Yahya Abdul-Mateen II recalled a story about a time he was once dancing to a Juvenile song — and Jay-Z stared at him so hard it made him stop.
“JAY-Z throws this party, the Gold Party, and he throws it every year for the Oscars, and I got an invitation,” he said.
“I’m in my tux, I’m dressed up, I’m feelin’ good, and one of my favorite songs comes on. It’s a Juvenile song. I hop on the stage, and I’m dancing, I’m sweating, and — I lose all my scruples. I look over, and JAY-Z is looking at me dead in my eyes. No judgment or nothing like that, but he’s looking at me, and I saw myself through his eyes. I thought I should probably get off stage, play it cool. But it’s cool to get carried away, you know.”
He told the story while laughing, so there aren’t any hard feelings.
