It is not uncommon for actors and rappers to form a special bond; either as close friends or bonds that were already established because they are family. Either way, it is a thing of joy to hear and see celebrities referring to one another as good friends.

Jay-Z is a talented rapper and successful businessman. For many years, he has been able to retain himself on the list of most influential musicians in the world. If anything, the honor comes easily for the man now a days.

From why fans have gathered over the years, Jay-Z is not entirely a people-person. Of course, he has friends, but he mostly keeps his circle small. In music and business combined, the less friends one keeps, the better, but this is just to say that these friends are very important.

One time, Jay-Z spat some bars in his song, which solely aimed at flattering Gwyneth Paltrow. In his 2006 single titled “Hollywood,” the rapper said;

“When your friends is Cheirs and Gwyneth, then it’s time to get all your windows tinted/ keepyour eyes squinted, it’s gon’ flash any minute.”

Initially, when the song was released, fans loved everything about it, but they barely recognized the part that included Paltrow and her then husband, Chris Martin.

Nevertheless, the lines that referred to the actress was not lost on fans in 2018 when an interview with Amber Rose shed more light on the nature of the lyrics that included Paltrow. Since then, fans have been wondering if the actress and rapper were ever friends, or her name just seemed to be the best fit for that rap line.

Amber Rose alleged that Paltrow was “Becky with the good hair,” that Beyoncé refereed to in one of her songs, who Jay-Z was allegedly having an affair with. First off, Gwyneth is a far throw from Becky and although she is a good hair, it still doesn’t mean she had an affair with the rapper.

When the allegations spread like wildfire, Paltrow addresses it by calling it ‘absurd.’

In fact, Paltrow has always appeared as a good friend to both Jay-Z and Beyoncé in the past.

In recent years, B and Jay have stayed off the radar, except when the campaign for Black Lives Matter began. According to reports, the couple see more benefits in keeping their personal lives private and letting the public know only why they want to tell.

This also includes keeping their circle of friends very small and from what fans have seen since 2018, Paltrow is not part of the inner circle of friends that the couple keep. However, she is also living her life with her new man; Brad Falchuk and barely has the time for online gossip.
