Today marks 11 years of marriage for Jay Z and Beyonce. There were so many bets that they wouldn't make it 11 months. With their level of celebrity, it's a common thing for break ups to happen. So many possible things that can get in the way. There's time apart, traveling, rumors, and more. But not only have they stayed together, but they have stood the test of time. Could it possibly be that they have kept everyone out of their personal business? As much as possible anyway. The best part about this for me is that they represent the ANTI stereotype of a celebrity relationship. The normalcy of it all plays out in their music. The angst, the happiness, the anticipation, the disappointments and betrayals have all been played out in their music. Instead of the tabloids, they put it in verse. Either way, I'm still rooting for them. I like the fact that instead of "keeping it real", they've kept the most monumental parts of their lives a secret. It looks like that formula works. Salute to King Jay & Queen B!!!
